La Camaronera Restaurant- Authentic Little Havana Miami Shopping Plaza Landmark

Open Mon-Sat 9am-5:30pm; Sun 10am-5:30pm

La Camaronera fish market in Little Havana Miami, is one of Miami’s best kept secrets. If your idea of a quality seafood restaurant means FRESH seafood first and foremost, then you need to look no further than this hidden away shopping plaza landmark.

Don’t expect anything fancy, in fact, don’t even expect chairs – there are none. Here you simply stand at the counter and order your seafood from the incredibly cordial servers who are quick with their feet and to give you a smile. Ordering is simple. You simply point out your seafood from the icy cold display case and within minutes, it is on your plate. A little cocktail sauce, tarter sauce and lemons are all you will need. And for those who like a little spice in their life, you have to try the homemade hot sauce.

Eating at this Little Havana Miami gem is like eating at the dock – the food is that fresh. From the sweet salt water Florida lobster to the legendary “Pan con Minuta,” a de-boned, headless, bun-length fish, battered in an egg and flour mix and deep fried and topped with diced onions and a splash of tarter sauce - tail on. Also excellent is the hearty fish soup and the seafood and rice dish that will make you say, “Where have you been all my life?”

A word of advice though; don’t be shy. If you expect a lobster delivery at your table, you will need to be a little aggressive at the counter. Here, you need to wave at the server so you can get their attention. It is not considered rude or impolite to try to get their attention; it’s expected. And speaking of lobster, La Camaronera is also famous for their breaded lobster chunks which were featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives with star chef Guy Fieri.

Eating at this Little Havana Miami spot has been a favorite of local residents since 1974. Opening as a fresh seafood market in 1966, the Miami product soon added deep fryers and built a U-shaped counter bringing in loads of customers who were searching for inexpensive, yet flavorful fried fish dishes. Since then, the standing room only restaurant has never been empty. A visit to this shopping plaza landmark should be included as part of the perfect package of a complete authentic Miami vacation.
