“Fabulous food and delectable wines served by a friendly wait staff !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Eating here is like going over to a friend's house and having Mom cook you a fresh delicious meal ! The wine selection is large and full of tasty Spanish white and red wines. Whether you want Tapas or a full meal, Giraldo's is a family owned friendly restaurant where you can enjoy a savory meal and relax your weary bones. If you go at night, there's salsa on Thursday and Saturday. And it doesn't matter if you go alone or with friends, the friendly atmosphere is infectious and will call you back again and again.

“A hidden spanish treasure in Coral Gables, Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I used to frequent Giralda about once a week on thursdays for lunch with my two brothers and friends for quite a while. Approximately two years ago it changed ownership and was very disappointed with the change, so we stopped going there. Recently I was told new owners had taken over and that it was very good. The first week in May 2013 we returned and was like returning home after a long absence.
The return was better than originally with outstanding food and service. We normally eat spanish tapas which we share and drink some spanish wine. This will again become our thursdays watering whole. See you next thursday

“Very pleasent surprise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

My wife and I were stuck in town (usually not fans of Miami) for her professional workshop and discovered La Taberna within walking distance of our hotel. Excellent food, fish cooked in a salt cake, excellant flaminco show, very busy but had excellant service and was able to stumble home by foot. The perfect evening.

“excellent place in coral gables near miracle mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I was visiting Coral Gables from Brazil and have been to this place with my wife not one but two times in the same week to enjoy the sympathy of the new owners and their staff together with the excellent food and the flamenco show they offer every Thursday. We could notice that many of the tables had frequent clients many of which not only knew each other but also the owners and the staff from previous visits . The atmosphere was like everyone was part of the same family. Karen Pino made us feel like we also belonged thereto. I certainly recommend this place to anyone willing to enjoy a nice evening.
