Rosa Mexicano

Upscale chain Mexican restaurant that is soon-to-be a trendy hangout spot on Lincoln Road in South Beach.

What we had:

I had the Fish Tacos--flavorful if a bit on the dry side fish served with pickled onions, an interesting sweet ranch creamed grilled corn side I used as a taco topping, phenomenal and deeply complex beans and salsa with corn tortillas.

My DH had well seasoned and soft Steak Tacos with chihuahua cheese and roasted peppers instead of the onions and the same sides.

At first glance the servings looked small, but our proteins just kept going and we each ended up getting more than four small tacos.

No table chips or salsa.


High style with stunning orange, pinks and purples on a foil of pure white with blue and black anchors.


The service was a bit lacking from our actual server, but they just opened and we managed to eat lunch for $29 on Lincoln Road so no complaints.

Overall impressions:

With it's gorgeous decor, prime location and tableside guacamole, this place is primed to become a hot spot.

As gourmet Mexican goes, the food was miles better than Cantina Laredo, but not quite as good as Talavera (those beans were close, though).

3.75 out of 5 salamanders, mostly for service.
