Wonderful service, wonderful food

We were a party of 8 adults and 1 toddler celebrating a birthday. The lovely restaurant, evocative of Spain, of which we are familiar, was a great backdrop to the excellent tapas and shared plate menu. The staff were really knowledgeable and friendly.

Such a nice place with good service but definitely average food, especially considering the price. Tapas are nice, I suggest to have the "18 Month Jamon Serrano" while, if you like the real Spanish dishes, avoid the Paella. Considering the overall experience and the price, I will avoid a future visit.

Cozy romantic restaurant. Friendly staff. We actually missed our first reservation due to over sleeping from a jet lag induced nap and they were so nice and let us come the next night. Fantastic food and wine

The food was amazing and the services was wonderful, they were helpful and pleasant. We had the Slow Braised Ox Cheek and the Paella with pan-roasted market fish and it was food heaven. We even had a look around the small Gaudi inspired garden. The scenery was wonderful, looking out to the ocean but also down to their own little... More

We went to Casita Miro for lunch. Fantastic food. We tried most of the Tapas on the menu and there wasn't one we didn't like. My favourite was the Snapper. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside I would say is that we were there on a very busy day and the tables were quite close together. If... More

We felt rushed. The place is a tapas inspired eating establishment but even though we asked our female waiter to not bring our first 3-4 selections all together; this is exactly what happened 5-10 mins later. When I reproached her she pretended to not know of our conversation 10 mins prior. The food is interesting but definitely at the costlier... More

We have been before and loved it so bought some friends from the UK for lunch. We filled up our table with so much food and would have been happy with just the warm bread and dips for the starter but followed this with paella and lots more to share. The red sangria was particularly good and really reminded me... More
