Beautiful Spanish setting complete with wandering performer/singers

This place has many wonderful reviews, and a formidable menu. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer, which was tender and served with a nice garlic sauce. However, our entrees were brought while we were still eating the calamari. My brother enjoyed the lamb shank very much. My sister in law had... read more

I lived in Spain, and love traditional Spanish restaurants. The ambiance at this restaurant in Little Havana on Calle 8 , with the "jamones" hanging from the walls , and formally attired waiters, is very reminiscent of places in Spain, Their soups, like gaspacho, are excellent, as are their meat dishes and superb sauces .Great seafood also. I think the... More

We came here to have our lunch right after 7 days Carribean cruise. It was a great seafood feast. We started with seafood soup, pan fried scallop, baby greens salad and seafood salad. Yummy, yummy. We then add the wild mushroom sautéed and steamed clams marinated. We also ordered the seafood paella (two person but 4 of us shared). A... More

Very disappointed in general. We used to go to this restaurant at least twice a month a couple of years back, because it was a great restaurant, and we decided to pay a visit again. what a surprise. We did not like the food at all. The zarzuela of Mariscos tasted very different to what we remember and the merluza... More

We have not been here for over 25 years and it brought back a lot of memories. Still good food but very pricey and the service was not that great. We were seated in an awkward spot it was hard to get our waiter to come and he was so slow with our Paella that the seafood was over cooked.... More

Although I live in Miami I had not been to Casa Juancho for over 10 years. I remember it well in the 1970s as Vizcaya Restaurant (owned by a great Basque chef), then they sold it and it became Casa Juancho. I tell you this because I recognized the restaurant immediately since the décor has not changed!!! Outside signs are... More

While visiting Miami, my cousin suggested we dined in these Spanish restaurant. I am a Paella lover and have had the chance to share it in both sides of the atlantic. The restaurant has curb appeal as a colonial spanish restaurant and inside the decor shares the motif. We asked for Paella Valenciana and a sangria. It's my opinion that... More
