Miami’s restaurant scene kills it on all fronts when it comes to gourmet gastronomy, but our close proximity to some of the country’s best fishing ensures that the foodie spotlight always settles on seafood. We’ve rounded up a list of the top 5 restaurants in the 305 that offer the freshest fish around for your haddock hankerings or a raw bar rampage.

1 Estiatorio Milos

Estiatorio Milos
Founded by acclaimed chef Costas Spiliadis with locations all over the world from London to Las Vegas, Milos has become a global seafood dynasty in the restaurant industry. The Miami Beach location is a premier destination with its elegant, lofty aesthetic and diverse selection of over 20 species of fish prepared in authentic Mediterranean fashion. Menu favorites include the Greek Ceviche, with Loup de Mer, fresh herbs, gigante beans and feta cheese, or stick with the classics and order the Milos Special with lightly fried zucchini, eggplant, tzatziki and kefalograviera cheese.

2 Joe's Stone Crab

It's no surprise that this infamous Miami Beach hotspot tops the list of the best seafood in the 305 -- the popular South Florida eatery draws visitors from all over the globe to experience the scrumptious sweetness of the world's best stone crabs. The stone crabs, crab cakes and key lime pie are a must for those who want the ultimate Joe's experience, but make sure to get there early to avoid crazy long lines, or order from Joe's Takeaway next door if you're too hungry to wait.

3 Seaspice

Located on the picturesque Miami River in a sophisticated, nautical-themed space with panoramic views of the city's downtown skyline, Seaspice has become a mecca for Miamians who know how to have a good time while enjoying impeccable seafood. The restaurant is a hotspot for dinner before a night on the town or a boozy brunch the next day. Order the King Crab Tempura with cucumber, mango, hearts of palm, Korean chili and ponzu butter, or the Salt Crusted Whole Red Snapper, flambéed tableside served with black truffle risotto.

4 Lure Fishbar

Hailing from the popular New York flagship, South Beach's Lure Fishbar is a standout spot for Miamians in the mood for the freshest oysters, sushi, ceviche and cooked seafood share space found on the extensive menu. Head to the Loews Hotel for daily happy hour from 6-8 p.m. to savor craft cocktails and light bites, then stick around for dinner to enjoy offerings like the grilled whole daurade with grilled lemon, watercress and agrodolce, or a classic lobster roll with veggie slaw and salt & vinegar chips.

5 Fifi's Place
This quaint, local eatery is a bit of a hidden gem in Miami's North Beach, but has earned its reputation as a neighborhood hotspot for its delicious fresh seafood. Fifi's is famous for its seafood Paella and fresh Hog Snapper caught by local divers daily, but the real key to the restaurant's success has to be the menu's Fresh Catch of the Day, where customers choose a preparation of grilled, fried, steamed whole or fillet of whatever fresh fish was caught that morning.
