“Superb Spanish Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went to Xixón invited by friends from Miami who really know good cuisine, so our expectations were high. This place did not dissapoint. We walked through their wine cellar and selected our bottle at our leisure, which was a nice experience and set the mood for an excellent evening. We decided to go for tapas, small dishes to share, and must have had everything that was on the menu; from octopus to lamb chops. everyting was delicious. This is a must-go place when in Miami.

“Felt like being back in Spain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Was thrilled to find this gem in the middle of Coral Gables! Spanish embassy is close by, so just googled looking for a spanish restaurant for lunch. My husband is from Spain and I spent several years living there, so we've been more than disappointed by "spanish" restaurants and the new "Tapas" bars that are popping up! This was definitely authentic, Spanish Tortilla, Jamon jabugo de pata negra, pulpo, queso manchego, huevos con papas and jamon serrano and flawless service! Too bad we couldnt stay for dinner! Definitely will be back when we're in Miami!

“Galicia in Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you want to eat Galicia's style octopus in Miami, this is the place to go. In general, if you want to feel like you are in a place in Cuchilleros but still in Miami, go visit Xixon.

“Authentic & excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I was recommended to this restaurant by another Tripadvisor contributor and, of course, the favorable reviews also helped. The food is excellent, my husband and I ate there last night - the atmosphere was great, staff extremely friendly & efficient. You can eat 'tapas' only or a regular full sized dish. We started with 2 tapas which we shared: cordonices rellenos (stuffed quail) and chipirones rellenos (stuffed squid) then we shared cochonillo (suckling pig), a regular sized serving. They also have an excellent choice of wine. We lived many years in Spain and found this food to be the most authentic we've ever had in Florida - it would appear everyone working there was originally from Spain.
They have a free valet parking service, although tips are appreciated, as parking can be at a premium along the street. It was a lot further along Coral Way/Miracle Mile that I first expected, so for anyone driving there from Le Jeune Rd, just keep going, it's on your left. Should have used the GPS.
You will not be disappointed - if Spanish food is your thing. Their website does not have prices on it, but they have such a range of prices, it's for everyone's pockets.
