      Went a long time ago. Haven't gone back because it's a little out of the way. I remember we got there at 8:30 but the place was emptying out. It's definitely on Aventura time.

      The place was decent enough. Nothing spectacular but solid. Here's a link to the site.

        Pilar is in the Promenade Shoppes in Aventura off Biscayne Blvd. I have eaten there multiple times. Good fish entrees, moderate prices, nice ambiance. BTW I tried the new Soup Man in the same strip mall today for lunch. Had very good corn chowder. They have many soup choices and also serve sandwiches and salads.

          any better suggestion for a strong fish place...informal great food moderate price but will also have non fish alternatives...could be anywhere from boca down to south beach...thanks for all the good info...also if possible somewhere where we could walk around afterwords.
