A medley of epic eats awaits you at Venetian Islands!

Sure, one may find the food spots closest to the area underwhelming, but the same can't be said as soon as you drive through the Venetian Causeway

And the good news is that it only takes minutes to get to your restaurant of choice, whether at the east end, where Lincoln Road, South Beach, Miami Beach, and its other neighborhoods are, or at the western part, where Downtown Miami is.

You'll never run out of restaurants to try!

Yes, folks, Venetian Islands make all this possible!

So if you're looking to experience Miami's ultimate definition of foodgasm, I have your back!

Here are the Top 5 Eats to try while you're here. 

(in no particular order)

The Lido Bayside Grill

40 Island Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

✅ Takeout - ✅ Dine-in - ✅ Drive-through

A gathering place for friends to share drinks and bayside bites, Lido Bayside Grill is one of the local hangouts on the Venetian Islands and probably the closest food spot in the area.

The upscale restaurant is guided by locally sourced ingredients, sustainable seafood, and seasonal produce, creating an evolving menu that's both light and shareable so diners can enjoy a variety of flavors. 

Their culinary concept is also diverse, influenced by global cuisines with a flavor profile that exudes the essence of Miami Beach. 

Imagine savoring expertly-grilled dishes, fried comfort food, and chilled eats with the Biscayne Bay as your view. 

Truly, nothing short of amazing!

And yes, there will be plenty of frosé!

Café Standard

40 Island Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

✅ Takeout - ✅ Dine-in 

Offering locals and visitors a casual neighborhood breakfast and lunch spot where they can enjoy plant-forward super-food packed options and cheat day treats, Café Standard at The Standard Spa should be the "standard" when dining out!

Here, you can elevate your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being with what you choose to put in your body. 

The cafe has all-day dining with light and heavy food options, including favorites like the Mezze Bowl, Omega Salad, Vegan Bahn Mi, or Spirulina Vegan Pastries, to name a few. 

Cafe Standard also has a menu of healthy drinks you can pair with your meal, with drink highlights that include cold-pressed juices, specialty coffees, vegan milk, and fresh smoothies!

Guests can dine their favorite dish under the playful Mario Lopez Torres pendant with dangling monkeys, take in the vintage tapestry with the surreal artwork of Corneille, or perch at the Arthur Umanoff mid-century inspired bar or custom enamel-topped tables! Beautiful Scandinavian aesthetic!

Indeed, a classy but casual neighborhood food spot to visit whenever you're in Venetian Islands!

Joia Beach

1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami, FL 33132

✅ Takeout - ✅ Dine-in - ✅ Outdoor Dining

Welcome to Joia Beach, a hidden enclave in the heart of Miami, designed as a vibrant restaurant and oasis where the bright lights and the city beat meet the elements and beauty of nature. 

It's also one of the local Venetian Islands food spots (on the other side of the causeway) where you can indulge, relax, and experience MAGIC!

Opened in 2020 and designed by Francois Frossard, Joia Beach nestles behind a picturesque pathway encompassed by lush jungle greenery and ambient lighting and is known as a day-to-night dining destination located in an exclusive enclave on Watson Island. 

But aside from good island food, sun-drenched sands, sweeping views of Biscayne bay and the city skyline, and vibrant pink-hued golden sunsets await Joia Beach diners. 

No wonder the restaurant has been hailed by Condé Nast Traveler as one of "The Best Beaches in Miami," perfect for peeps craving a slick beach scene away from Miami Beach's masses.

For their menu, acclaimed Argentinian brothers Gustavo and Maximiliano Vertone have brought their signature flavors and expertise to Joia Beach restaurant. 

Here, you'll experience deliciously unique culinary fusions that enhance the beachfront venue's lunch and dinner menus using inspiration and techniques from Asian, Mediterranean, and South American regions. 

And lots of great cocktails and drinks, too!

Joia Beach is indeed a travel and dining destination in one! 

A must-visit whenever you're in Venetian Islands!
