Malibu Farm

Sidle up to the patio bar or just hang out on the couch-style benches and enjoy one of Miami’s newest farm-to-table eateries. Go for a seat on the restaurant’s half-indoor, half-outdoor deck for pristine views of the Atlantic with the bonus of AC. On the menu, look out for the arugula, mango and burrata salad and the avocado pizza on cauliflower crust.

This quaint restaurant is located within one of our favorite green spaces, Peacock Park. Take refuge under large shady trees while snacking on a refreshing watermelon salad doused in cotija cheese and lime crema. Oh, and make sure to snag a seat next to one of the restaurant’s big fans (both for the cooling factor and the Beyoncé-music-video effect).

Amara at Paraiso

Is it really an indoor restaurant when all the windows and doors are wide open, making way for the Biscayne Bay breeze and a killer Intracoastal sunset? At this recently opened restaurant by Miami’s own Michael Schwartz, feast on platters of Argentine meat and cheese while enjoying a chilled malbec.

Gianni’s at the Villa

Dinner alfresco doesn’t get more romantic than at Gianni’s, a restaurant inside the former Versace mansion with delicious food and dazzling views. And nothing says romance like noshing on charcuterie and burrata while gazing at a 54-foot-long gold-tiled mosaic pool and sipping a 24-karat golden margarita.

Bird & Bone

We couldn’t round up outdoor dining spots and not include Bird & Bone’s adorable enclosed patio, reminiscent of a country farmhouse. Offset a plate of the must-order hot fried chicken with a refreshing Bone Bramble (gin, blackberry, cucumber, sage and lemon).
