We happened to be in the neighborhood where I grew up in which is South of Little Havana (In Miami) as it is called. And had heard about this place several times and decided to try it.
Don't let the location fool you. This great little gem is inside toward the back of a BP Gas station.
When you walk inside, you will find the bakery first and the restaurant is just a few steps further in.
If you like Spanish Tapas you will not be disappointed. The decoration is pleasant and closed off to the front with painted frescos and faux second floor balcony painting on the walls.
The food is very good. We had the mushrooms and chorizo in a red vino sauce and wanted to order another! It was very tasty. We also had the grilled Corvina in mustard sauce with shrimp and it was excellent.
The Manager came by to our table to make sure everything was fine and even though we had a small problem it was corrected and we were treated to a comp glass of wine while we waited. I ordered the BonBon after our lunch, which is espresso coffee served with two different types of milk in a layered fashion which was the best I've had. Stir it and drink up. Very yummy!
Although we did not have desserts, you can view them as you walk in by the bakery and they looked fabulous.
Great service and good food with affordable prices in a very unexpected location.
We were very surprised and will definitely return! Everyone should give this place a try!
