Mexico.... home of Talavera, the unique fine art pottery from the 16th Century, native of the city of Puebla. This genuine and refined Mexican spirit of the Talavera art sets the ground for the spirit of our menu. From the "Huarache" grill, a series of delicate dishes served on a corn tortilla base, to a variety of regional specialties from Sonora to Oaxaca, from Michoacan to Puebla, from Jalisco to Yucatan.

We were a party of 13 and we were able to sit together. Started with margaritas on the rocks and the queso dip which are both great. They prepare very authentic dishes. The guacamole is served with mini tortillas. We enjoyed the enchiladas in the green chile sauce. Atmosphere and service are very nice as well. Also decent size bar... More

My favorite spot for authentic Mexican in Coral Gables. Great staff, excellent food. The best Tacos de Carnitas in town. This is upscale Mexican cuisine.

Nice atmosphere. Great food. Focused menu on what Mexican food has of its best. However with an unique touch of the Talavera. Difficult to describe - I was amazed from begging to end. My very first time here. And I will certainly come back for more.

This is a lovely restaurant in the center of Coral Gables. The food is authentic Mexican with the exception that the spiciness of the dishes is toned down for the American palate. Margaritas were excellent – not too tart and not too sweet. The guacamole was prepared to order and served with corn tortillas, which I prefer to tortilla chips... More

We have been going to Talavera for many years. We have been traveling to Mexico for several years and appreciate the cuisine. Not the Tex-Mex cheesy nachos you expect to eat at a game or or Taco Bell. Fine Mexican cuisine is not an oxymoron or, it is just misunderstood. The complexity of flavors and textures can only be captured... More

Everything here was delicious. From the chips and salsa to our main meal, everything was great. Great flavors and friendly staff. Highly recommend trying the chicken or fish huarache.

Centric Ponce de leon Blvd location. Choice to Dine in or out. Super tasting multi colored tortilla chips &Guacamole was an extra generous serving that 4 diners could not finish. Great plate of swiss enchiladas in a green sauce. Beef was also large portion and very tasty. Margaritas were very good.
