“Great tapas, ambiance and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We went to Miami this past week and decided to go to Xixon. My sisters went there in the past and they were dying to go back. Our family is from Asturias, Spain and we just had to go, great decision as the food, ambiance and service were excellent. We started with an order of sardines, chistorras al vino, pulpo con patatas, callos a la madrilena, croquetas, gambas al ajillo and mejillones. We just loved them all. The waitress, who was also Spanish, was also great. She was always around in case we needed something and helped us with the wine selection. I am definitely going back on my next trip. Thanks to our waitress and the owner for making us feel as if we were back in Spain!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great food and service. Their tapas are fresh and tasty, they also have a full bar. Their desserts are not far behind especially the chocolate mousse,Their wine selection is incredible carrying only spanish wines, a really nice wine cellar that allows for browsing at your own leisure. Will be back!

Hi Alberto

Glad to hear that you enjoyed our Tapas, Desserts and Wine!

So you know we are constantly improving our Tapas Menu by adding new items, most recently we added the Oxtail, try it next time.

We are also working on a Wine List to make it easier to find one's favorite wine but we still think that browsing through the Temperature Controlled Wine Cellar is the best experince of all!

We greatly appreciate your feedback and do hope to see you back soon!

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I went to Xixon cafe with my husband for dinner on a Friday night. Overall we were disappointed with the food and service. The seafood tapas were stale. They have hard time accommodating people with special dietary restrictions. They assured me they will serve soup without ham, but when the soup came, it had ham in it. We pointed it out to the waitress and set the soup aside. Finally when the waitress gave us the bill, she billed us for the soup and refused to take it out of the bill because the soup was served even though we didn't eat it. I was frustrated and asked to speak to the manager who finally settled the issue. The only this that is good about this restaurant is the ambience nothing else.

“Best Spanish Restaurant in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This is my very favorite Spanish restaurant in Miami. I will tell you why.

Begonia, the owner from Asturias, has worked very hard to make her restaurant the success it has become. Her dedication and professionalism had paid off. It is a dependable and delightful experience to vist Xixon. The food is is of the highest quality, the service is always professional, warm and friendly, and the restaurant has several environments to choose from: a second level, the outdoor terrazza, the main dining room with a counter as well, and a more intimate cellar area great for tapas and a drink. Seafood is brought in from Spain, tapas are very varied, the Spanish breads are always baked in house and delicious. They have easy valet parking and have a great happy hour too. It is a great place to go for a full meal or for a drink and tapa. They have great desserts and the best hot chocolate with churros in town.

Over all my recommendation is 100% as I have only had positive experiences at Xixon. I love to go there any time. Have been numerous times. I was there with two friends and the day before with my son. As always. My experience is positive and I can say that you cannot go wrong choosing Xixon in terms of quality of food, service and beautiful design and ambiance .

Just go there. You will like it!
