    The ceviche mixto I had at Puerto De Vallarta in Homestead was quite good. On the west coast of Florida, in Sarasota, Red (formerly Tondero) also has pretty good ceviche. The former is Mexican, the latter Peruvian.

      If it's on the menu at Eduardo De San Angel it would totally kick butt.

        I'll second Francesco's and add River Oyster Bar (in miami) to the list.

          River Oyster Bar in Miami has SUPERB Corvina Ceviche.

            Have any ceviche fans tried Goyo El Pollo in Hollywood? I'm not a ceviche expert but I tried the mixed seafood ceviche and it was very good. It''s a casual Peruvian place one block north of Hollywood Blvd in Downtown Hollywood.

              I usually go there for the chicken. I'll have to try the ceviche. Last time we were there, the table next to us got the jalea mixta, which also looked quite good.

                The rotisserie chicken is also very good

                Francescos blows River out of the water...no pun intended! Not that River's Ceviche isn't good, in fact very good...it's just that Francesco's is excellent! And their 'Acebichado de Tuna $ 15.00 Seared tuna topped with Francesco's Aji amarillo sauce and chopped scallions' is out of this world...another amazing dish there is Riso Nero con Fruti de Mare $ 26.00 Rice, shrimp and scallops on our superb squid ink sauce.

                This place is a must for seafood and Peruvian cuisine lovers...actually they do a very nice beef dish known as Lomo Saltado $ 26.00 Sautéed black angus beef tenderloin with onions and tomatoes, enriched with red wine and soy sauce, served with mushroon Tacu Tacu as well.

                Don't know what happened on that post...

                Anyways... Francesco's for me! Although I have to admit I haven't done River Oyster Bar...it is on my to do list this month ;-)

                    you know what? I always forget to give him his due in this category...you are right! DR is a Ceviche MD for sure! Good add.

                          I'll second Francesco's , i think this is by far the best ceviche, River Oyster Bar have a good one too.

                          1. Frodnesor RE: netmover Apr 20, 2009 05:03 AM

                            I had a really good octopus ceviche at Area 31, new restaurant in the Epic hotel in downtown Miami. Several other "crudo" dishes on the menu. More info here ->

                              Francesco's is my favorite. Jaguar is also a favorite. The local snapper/grouper ceviche at Michael's Genuine is also pretty freakin good.

                                Hey Miami Hounds! This list is so old! I bet you have a bunch of new places to add on. How's Cvi.che 105? Or DeRodriguez Ocean? And how are the old timers faring?
