“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

The food and service are top class
Value for money, although not cheap, is probably one of the best not only in Coral Gable but in Miami overall
Fish is always fresh and the chef there all the time to accomodate any need
Wine list is perfectly balance, with some expensive wines but also some good value for money, esp. The whites from Spain
We have been there already three times and never been disappointed
Last, the place is quite for a conversation arpund the table which, at least in Miami, is something quite unusual

“Overrated and over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Three of us visited La Dorada last weekend for dinner, and although the service was terrific the food was overrated and definitely over priced. We had their fish special, two appetizers, a bottle of inexpensive wine and one dessert and the bill was $300. The cod fish was not boneless, which I thought for a restaurant of this category it should have been. Overall, ambience and service were great but the food was just ok.

“One of the best spanish restaurants out of Spain.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

With the new Milos restaurant in Miami, la Dorada is the best seafood restaurant in The Miami area. But not only fish, last time we whent they offer me a chickpeas soup, just out of this world. We will come back.

“Great Value for a business lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

With a central location in Coral Gables, this great Spanish food Restaurant offers lunch specials at around $20.00 per person... But that is not all... the quality & quantity of the food is perfect and the service is outstanding. A fantastic option at noon that deserves a visit even if it is not for a business meal...
