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. Talavera, the art of a genuine and refined taste of Mexico.

Last year, I wrote a review of Talavera and acerbically panned the place, swearing never to return. My wife suggested we go back and I could not refuse. We had our dog with us and ate outside. Our waiters were wonderful and the food was good. The last time we came was on a Sunday night -- the place was... More

Fine Mexican dining and great service made this one of our favorite spots during recent Miami getaway. Shimp Tacos are excellent. Caution; the green dip that comes with the chips is smoking hot. Would suggest you have a cold beer at the ready to douse the flames.

Superior upscale Mexican restaurant. The food was excellent with a great service staff. We visited on a busy Friday night, but the chips, drinks, and food came quickly. Reservations recommended.

Talavera offers authentic Mexican food in the Coral Gables area! The food and service are excellent. It is usually crowded for lunch so you have the option of sitting outside or at the bar! If you go during dinner time, the mariachis will sing by your table which gives you the real Mexican feel! I strongly recommend this restaurant if... More

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.
