4 Miami Restaurants Sebastián Yatra Says Have “Energía Bacana”

He's the authority on good vibes (and carbonara).

Sebastián Yatra is the authority on energía bacana. The term, which loosely translates to good vibes, is not only the name of the Colombian singer's most recent single, but also a key quality he looks for in a restaurant. Same, Sebastián. So we asked the Latin GRAMMYs and Billboard Latin Music Award-nominated singer with South Florida roots to tell us a few of the restaurants he visits when he's looking for good food and a side of energía bacana.

See more from Sebastián Yatra and artists like Shakira, Young Miko, Feid, and Arcangel at Billboard Latin Music Week.

"It’s an unassuming spot inside a food hall with some of the best pasta in town. All the pasta is homemade and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. They have a delicious tiramisu if you want to end your meal with something sweet."

"A super cool atmosphere with quality food every time you dine there. It's a fun location for birthdays and special dinners with good friends in Miami. And when you travel, there’s another great location in New York too! It’s a delicious spot to eat when you’re in the mood for savory meats and veggies."

"If you’re craving a bagel, it’s the real deal spot in Miami. The ingredients aren't just the average and the bagels are fresh, warm, and hand-rolled. This spot is the exception to the rule that the best bagels are in New York City."

Romeu's Cuban Restaurant


"A family-owned restaurant in Southwest Ranches where you can feel the love in the food and the recipes. When you eat there, it’s as if you’re seated in a Cuban home. And the staff makes you feel like family. It’s a relatively expansive menu, so there’s a favorite option for everyone you’re with at the table."
