"Las Tapas de Rosa"

I've only been here once, but from what I've had - tortilla and sausage, as well as sangria, they were all good. I'll have to come back to update my review with more details.

There's a small Spanish market on site, and it is a nice, well-kept tapas restaurant managed by Rosa Rodriguez, a woman from Madrid.

They have ensalada rusa, seafood-mix plate, croquetas, fried chick peas, peppers, sandwiches, soups and more of the traditional Madrileno-styled tapas.

"Great weather and multicultural city"

If you like to interact with other cultures, have fun, stay in shape and be happy, Miami offers a lot of opportunities. Live near your work to avoid traffic and you will be ok.

Miami is quite a spectacular place to many and a hell hole to others but no matter which way you look at miami you absolutely can not deny that it is in fact like no other place on earth. Miami has very upscale people,upscale restaurants and homes,and upscale shopping.Lincoln road is a prime example of what Miamis shopping scene is about.Lincoln Road located on 16th Street in Miami Beach is pedestrian only street mall with 23 restaurants from upscale to just regular joe eateries.There are also many stores,art galleries,and even a movie theater located in one of south beachs' most populated area.

"Pricey but Wonderful Place to Live"

I've grown up in Miami, but have been fortunate to visit and spend significant amounts of time in many other cities. Although an extremely lengthy review would be easy, in the interest of making it quick, I'll say the following:

Miami is a great place to live, but not for the reasons you so often hear. The amenities provided to tourists are terrible and most things in these neighborhoods are overpriced. Much of the city is overpriced, in fact. But if you know what you are looking for -- beautiful scenery, wonderful food at decent prices, open space, lush foliage, and interesting people, it will take years to find the nooks and crannies where it can all be found.

"A third world country"

Miami is a place to visit and play, but not a place to live. The city only cares about toursist dollars and spanish speaking immigrants. If you speak english and don't spend a lot of money, you are not welcome. The fraud and accepted corruption in Miami is unbelievable

delmore Miami is great to visit and an ever greater city to live in. Beaches, parks, bright skies, the opportunity to meet people from anywhere in the world, taste the food from other countries and attend cultural events. And no, you do not have to spend a lot of money to enjoy the city; you can always find something to do for free.
