5 South Beach Restaurants In Miami You Seriously Can’t Miss

BY AMELIA CLAY, Owner of Verão Sandals

Hi Jetsetters!

My name is Amelia Clay. I moved to Miami for my first job after college and its been love ever since for this melting pot of a city on the beach! I personally love to travel slow, taking a few months to a year to explore a place, having the time to really immerse myself in the culture and building friendships with locals. I was chasing summer in Rio and could not find a comfortable sandal that was also chic, and I felt inspired to start Verão Sandals. The sandal company was the perfect avenue to share these fulfilling experiences on the road and connect with a community of traveling women!

Prime 112

Brown’s Hotel, 112 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (map, website)

Hours: Mon-Sun 12 p.m.-1 a.m.

Call: 305-532-8112

For a fancy night out when you want to go on a date or go out with friends, Prime 112 is one of my favorite restaurants on South Beach. Serving some of the best steaks in the city, this spot is worth the Miami Beach price tag and it’s right on the beach for a walk afterward!

Prime 112

Oliver’s Bistro

959 West Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (map, website)

Hours: Sun-Thu 9 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri-Sat 9 a.m.-12 a.m. 

Call: 305-535-3050

I love to get brunch at Oliver’s Bistro on Sunday. It’s definitely a local-only spot and you will see tons of South Beach residents having brunch with their friends and dogs! Be sure to grab a seat outside and sometimes they have a bottomless mimosa special for brunch, which is a must.


1040 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (map, website)

Hours: Mon-Sun 10 a.m.-1 a.m.

Call: 305-673-0047

Segafredo is the best place to get drinks and tapas at sunset and people watch on Lincoln Road! Love this place!


Mondrian Pool

1100 West Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (map, website)

Call: 305-514-1500

For a late lunch, the Mondrian Pool is Miami’s favorite local secret! Grab lunch poolside and you can use the pool, get a towel and amenities for free. Not to mention, the amazing pool view of the surrounding bay and unbelievable sunset makes it absolutely worthwhile!


2550 S Bayshore Dr, Miami, FL 33133 (map, website)

With an outdoor bar on Miami Beach pier, Monty’s is located in ultra exclusive South of Fifth. Be sure to grab dinner at the raw bar, which also has its own pool. And don’t forget to walk through the prestigious SoFi neighborhood and park afterward all the way to the most southern point of South Beach with unforgettable views of the bay.
