Everyone knows La Camaronera Fish Market as the iconic Little Havana seafood spot founded by a family of Cuban fishermen. Often packed, this tiny space offers both table and counter service, where patrons line up to order Florida seafood at its finest. For more than 40 years, the restaurant's owners, the Garcia brothers, have been cooking up their famous favorites — including grouper soup, shrimp empanadas, conch fritters, and a fresh fish sandwich — along with dozens of other Cuban-inspired dishes. Most people flock to the dive for the house speciality: camarones fritos, a dish that's been featured on Michelle Bernstein's PBS show Check, Please! and Guy Fieri's popular Food Network series Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Decades later, the dining room during lunchtime is still packed with patrons hankering for those famous fried shrimp. Insider tip: Co-owner David Garcia says don't leave without a taste of these two hidden gems: black-eyed pea fritters and home-made coconut cream pie.
