Miami is the city where people are never on time, jobs are scarse, and nobody speaks english. However one thing that you can bet on Miami is the beautiful weather and endless water views and ocean vistas. Problably the best part is taking Instagram pictures and posting it to make all your friends in the freezing cold up north jealous by showing them what they're missing. So to help you become the envy of everyone who is not here in Miami, here's is a compiled list of 8 best restaurant views in no particular order.

Tuyo, Bayside

  This downtown spot is a culinary lab of sorts for the Miami Culinary Institute at Miami-Dade College. Located on its Wolfson campus, the windows on this 7th floor restaurant look north towards the landmark Freedom Tower and American Airlines Arena, then out onto Biscayne Bay.

Rusty Pelican, Key Biscayne

  In the most sweeping restaurant view of Miami’s skyline you’ll find, this Key Biscayne landmark has been a brunch, wedding and special occasion staple for over 40 years. Looking west over Biscayne Bay one can watch Miami’s boom and bust economy as cranes and condos have made this view more dynamic as the years go on.

Monty's Raw Bar & Grill, South of Fifth

  Perhaps the next-best skyline view comes from this funky seafood bar next to the Miami Beach marina in South Beach. The draw of Monty’s isn’t just its spectacular view west over Biscayne of the city skylines, but its sunset happy hour where you can enjoy half priced drinks while you watch the sun go down over Miami.

Smith and Wollensky, Miami Beach

  For the most diverse view in Miami, nothing beats an outdoor table at venerable Smith and Wollensky. Bite into a juicy steak at one of their tables situated on the southern most point of South Beach and look out at the Atlantic Ocean, the downtown skyline, Fisher Island, and the beautiful people running through South Pointe Park without even having to turn your head.

La Mar, Brickell Key

  Not only is the waterfront view from the Mandarin Oriental’s newest restaurant one of the city’s best-  looking west across the serene bridge to Brickell Key towards the Brickell skyline - but it’s also the best restaurant with a view in Miami as Chilean legend Gaston Acurio brings his seafood mastery to South Florida

Brasileiro, Brickell Key

  In the space that was once Pocao, the premiere Miami rodizio steakhouse, Brasileiro adds an Asian fusion menu to the rodizio repertoire while diners sit almost-on-the-bay and gaze across Biscayne at Virginia Key, Fisher Island and, from some tables, the diners at La Mar.

Red Fish Grill, Coral Gables

  Unlike Tavern on the Green, this restaurant-in-a-public-park serves up actual good food in one of our hidden gems: Matheson Hammock Park. Drive through the banyan trees and down the dirt roads to end up at this bayside spot where you’ll forget you’re anywhere near one of the largest cities in America, and enjoy the blue waters of Biscayne Bay rolling out over a deserted beach as you dine on fresh caught Miami seafood. It’s like being stranded on an Island, without the dehydration.

Atrio, Brickell

  The best urban view in the city has to belong to Atrio on the 25th floor of the Conrad Hotel in Brickell. The western view out of the dining room gives you the Brickell skyline and sprawling Miami in the background, while the eastern view from the patio has you towering above the Rickenbacker causeway as it stretches across the Bay to Key Biscayne.
