I enjoy the atmosphere of eating outside, which always make my meals taste better. As far as food pizza on Washington ave is cheaper and better, most restaurants on Lincoln ave give 25% off if your early on entrees but the catch is usually on the appetizers and drinks no discount. 98% of the restaurants and bars add a gratuity to the bill but unless you read your bill thoroughly you'll see it but they won't tell you! Espenola way has very good Spanish and Cuban food and make sure you take a cooler to the beach otherwise you'll be buying warm water and soda at 3.75 a pop and when you tell them it's warm they give you a attitude. Also if you rent lounge chairs on the beach ask for the 12$ ones otherwise they'll rent you a 20$ one difference is size of cushion and a towel on it. Bring a towel down to the beach with you and save, I was with 3 women that used them everyday and the savings start adding up.
Our valet parking is $ 30 per day plus taxes. It is one of the lowest rates in South Beach. There is a public parking two blocks away, however their rates change with the demand and hours of the day. I hope it helps.
