Mediterranean
Welcome to Rakija, new, Serbian and Balkan cuisine dining concept by the famed Rakija Lounge Group of South Beach.
Our new restaurant is located in the heart of Downtown Miami and it’s meant to ensure a laid-back atmosphere in an otherwise bustling part of town. We want to offer our guests a place where they can relax while enjoying excellent food, and sip on their favorite type of Rakija.
Are you eager to try out new Mediterranean food? Visit us at our new location and order a plate of mixed grill meat with some ajvar and kajmak on the side, you won’t regret it. A year ago, food critics called our restaurant “Serbian food reimagined.” Our goal is to keep innovating and exploring new recipes.

    The service continues to be a problem at Rakija. The servers often take a lot of time to even come to your table upon arrival. Food takes a long time to get out. They failed to communicate well upfront about splitting bills. We asked for separate checks for a large party and at the end they said they could only split it four ways. Rakija really needs to figure out their service issues.

    Just note if you make an open table reservation that they won’t mark you present. I told the waiter besides the hostess and still didn’t get it change. Now, I have to chat with open table to show the receipt to get it marked as I’ve eaten there. Very frustrating! Food was decent. The mashed potatoes and vegetables were cold. The fish (salmon and Seabass) was beyond outstanding, but the chicken wasn’t the best. The pita bread was good. Our waiter was good until the end where it felt like they forget about us. Please note: none of the staff wore face masks.

    We had a party of 10 on Sunday about 12:30PM. There we only 1 or 2 parties of 2 other than us. The food was decent - nothing to write home about. The service was HORRIBLE. We were there for over 2 hours since it took so long to get our food. The cocktails took about 1/2 hour. 4 meals were served in a reasonable (but not good) amount of time. The other 5 meals were delivered about 1/2 hour later. And 1 meal was delivered about 1/2 hour after that and it was the wrong dish. The server was terrible. I understand we were in Miami, so it wasn't totally unexpected that she didn't speak much English and fortunately we had a Spanish speaker with us. None of the 10 of us would ever go to this restaurant again.

    Took my mother here for her 71st Birthday dinner and was very impressed! Food was delicious and quick. The service was phenomenal. The entire ambiance was so relaxed. I would definitely recommend it and eat here again. Fantastic experience all around.

    For the most part the food was good although tiramisu was incorrectly served frozen. They charged us $70 for a wine listed at $48 on the menu. When questioned, they said the price of the wine is higher than stated on the menu. They corrected it only after our objection to the difference. Overall, an uncomfortable experience. Most likely not go back.

    If you want to try the food from The Balkans in Miami -this is the right place to go . The burek ,the kebacheta and plescavitza were so delicious. They tasted like home. We definitely will go back. Also the rakia is good and the interior is extraordinary ! Great service and normal prices
