This our family's go to restaurant for the older ones birthdays; however last night was a let down. Waiters are too old to keep up with groups our size, hard of hearing and easily bothered. No bueno! Half of the table were served cold food, paellas were flavorless (how is that possible?) and my Chuleton de Buey (aged ribeye) typically... More

I am not sure that I was convinced I was entering Spain when I entered the dining room. Take down the Spanish plates and pots, put up some horse brasses and you could as easily be in 1970's iteration of a British pub from rural Victorian times built by developers on housing estates in England - horrid things that they...

Parking attendant was surly. Reception was not welcoming. The decor and atmosphere was above average. The waiter offered no help with the menu, never smiled, never asked if we liked our food, which we did not, and was very disgruntled when we reduced his tip. There was a couple with completely out of control children, running up and down the... More

I am an avid paella fan and I wanted to make sure I tried this fabulous dish whilst in Miami. In a 3 way conversation (using an interpreter) with some Spanish people at our hotel, we were tipped of that this was the best paella around. They were spot on. Well worth the half hour wait. Cooked to perfection and... More

While on vacation in South Florida, I was in search of authentic Cuban. I figured the best place to find it was in Little Havana. I did not trust reviews. I did not ask locals. I drove up and down the main drag and picked the place where the locals were standing in line to get in on a Saturday... More

Reviewing Casa Juancho is no easy task. I have been coming here since it opened (and even before that when it used to be Vizcaya); and yes I know authentic Spanish food. I have seen its decline and this is not a Five-Star restaurant. Unfortunately, Miami does not have many other Spanish restaurants like this-locals can understand what I am... More

Its... More

I sampled the lamb chops at 44$ for the plate. The waiter said the sauce would be on the side, but when the plate arrived there were all kind of condiments ON TOP of the lamb and I am not referring to a few leaves of mint. Coarse salt was sprinkled all over the plate and there was no sauce... More

Visited with family which included octogenarians and younger folks....everyone was accommodated graciously by the staff. There is valet parking so no need to worry about finding parking on Calle Ocho. The food is authentically Spanish-well prepared and well priced....the wine list is broad allowing for a range of palates. The sole was delicious, the garlic soup was great and leave... More

We stumbled upon this place on one of our eating sprees. I must warn you that the place is a bit expensive but they make it up with their food (pretty big portions). The place has a really great ambiance. It’s like we are in Spain. The roasted red pepper I had was so spicy yet delicious and the good... More
