Whether on staycation or vacation, Miami's hotels stand out on the dining scene. Here are eight go-to hotel restaurants that never disappoint. 

La Mar by Gaston Acurio

Peruvian master chef Gaston Acurio helms the kitchen inside Brickell Key's Mandarin Oriental, offering an indoor/outdoor space overlooking the bay and an impressive mix of South American and nuevo-Andean fare.

Scarpetta 

Inside the upscale Fontainebleau (pictured above), this swanky Italian staple led by NYC's Scott Conant keeps things ultraposh with its A-list crowd and stylish decor. The food is unexpectedly, and elegantly, simple, especially the signature spaghetti with basil.

Katsuya South Beach 


The minimalist Philippe Starck decor at the pricey Japanese venue in the swanky SLS South Beach showcases the unique fare of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi, like can't-get-enough baked crab hand rolls (or crack sticks, like the cool kids call 'em.)

660 at the Angler’s

Perched inside the quaint 1930s Angler's Hotel, this cozy nuevo-Latin nook with gardenlike patio is quiet, relaxed and family-friendly despite being on gritty Washington Avenue.

FIX

Head to the boutique Blue Moon Hotel and you'll stumble across this casually rustic American eatery with country-style charm and an all-day, must-try breakfast menu, with spot-on eats.

Zuma

A place to see and to be seen, this sharp Japanese space inside Downtown's waterside Epic Hotel is always bustling, be it the trendsetting dinner crowd or lingering Sunday brunchers.

Gibraltar 

Inside the Grove Isle Hotel — a home-away-from-home for locals — this waterfront American spot is tucked away on its own private Coconut Grove island, far from the usual tourist traps.

Cioppino

Expect top-notch service and quality Italian (especially the Sunday brunch buffet) at this elegant Key Biscayne restaurant — it's located inside The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne after all. But the impressive ocean views is what really reels people in.
