FiFi’s Place Seafood Restaurant
Looking for a good seafood restaurant in Miami Beach that’s unpretentious ,honest, and offers friendly service? Check out Fifi’s Place seafood restaurant, 6934 Collins Avenue (T.305-865-5665) . They offer just about everything you can image with seafood – from classic seafood parrillada (a medley of lobster, shrimp, scallops, calamari, and mussels) and paella to seafood soup, pastas, ceviches, tartares and more. Then there’s a selection of choices for the carnivore crowd.
We started with the mango tuna rolls, slices of raw tuna wrapped around mango and cream cheese and sprinkled with sesame seeds and Japanese noodles. Following that we chose truffle sea scallops in a rich cream sauce sprinkled with chives and garnished with garlic chips. Both got high marks. For the main course the dish to order is the whole fish, the catch of the day, done as you like it. We liked it fried, but presented off the bone for easy eating in what was a dramatic presentation. The catch was the hog snapper – delicate in flavor and super fresh. The one and a half pounder was just right for us, though might be a little small for larger eaters. No problem, though, you choose the size you want and are charged per pound ($25 a pound ). Entrees come with a salad and a choice of rice and beans, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables or homemade potato chips. You can upgrade to a Caesar salad for $4 more.
At lunch there’s also a selection of specials ranging from lobster ravioli and fish filet to shrimp in garlic sauce and meats, most priced from $12 to $15. There’s indoor and outdoor seating and parking in the back.
If you’re looking for a casual spot and are in the neighborhood, you won’t go wrong with Fifi’s.
