A tasty and refreshing ceviche always hits the spot, especially on a hot Miami summer day. Here’s where to indulge in the best ceviche in Miami:
Located in the heart of downtown Miami, this sleek and stylish looking resto serves up delectable cocktails and of course, a killer ceviche. A favorite seems to be the ceviche orgia de mariscos, which naughtily translates to “ceviche seafood orgy.” It’s mixed and marinated raw seafood swimming in tiger milk. According to the menu, this dish has plenty of texture and flavor to ensure sensations we should not even tell. Guests can pick either yellow pepper sauce or rocoto reduction. The tiraditos are also a hit. The Tiradito a La Crema de Maracuya is Cvi.che 105’s famous tiradito wrapped in a passion fruit cream, with chilies, herbs, and fresh corn.

La Mar is a chic Peruvian restaurant by renowned chef Gaston Acurio located at the Mandarin Oriental. This vibrant restaurant offers water-front dining with a spectacular view of Biscayne Bay, three bars serving up cocktails, such as piso sours, and specialties like ceviche and freshly grilled anticucho. The menu is made up of Asian-Peruvian fusion dishes. We’d recommend the Ceviche Mixto (yellowtail snapper, octopus, shrimp, rocoto pepper leche de tigre) and the Pescado Kama anticucho (grilled catch of the day, anticuchera sauce, chimichurri-garlic butter, lime). The Arroz con Mariscos for main dish sounds like a winner, (ají panca fried rice with shrimp, mussels, octopus, calamari, and salsa criolla).
