“Authentic Spanish flavors in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

In a very modern setting, yet you will be embraced by an overwhelming feeling of being in the heart of Asturias, Spain. Impeccable cuisine, don't miss the extraordinary variety of Spanish tapas, try the fantastic selection of Spanish cheeses and wines (if you love reds you should go for Camins del Priorat 2009) and be ready to be transported to heaven (the Asturian version of it) if you dare to have the fabada!!!!!

Thanks for your great feedback. The Fabada Asturiana is our Saturday's signature dish, one of our favorites as well!

Sincerely

“Ok Spanish food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Went to this restaurant in a non-descript area located midway between Brickell and Coral Gables on a recent week night. Sampled a number of Spanish dishes which ranged from quite tasty to so-so. Prices were ok for most dishes, but nothing great. Best deal on the menu was a glass of Sangria and some of the wines. Nice atmosphere inside, although it was rather quiet on this week night.

All in all, it was a nice time, but not a repeat for me as there are too many other better places to eat in Coral Gables/Brickell area.

“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!
