We flew into Miami airport around dinner time and looked for a place to eat. This location was recommended, so we went. WHAT A FANTASTIC MEAL!! It is a Tapas restaurant, on a corner near a highway, in the back of a BP GAS STATION AND CONVENIENCE STORE! It is actually very quaint and cozy, once you pass through the convenience portion. An absolutely huge selection of wines line several walls, and the rest is like an outdoor, plaza restaurant, only indoors. The quality of the food was not to be surpassed. We had the bacon wrapped stuffed dates - sweet dates and spanish chorizo - wrapped in smoked bacon and fried to perfection, house salad - mixed greens layered with tomatoes, cucumbers,pears, goat cheese & almonds and house dressing, shrimp in garlic olive oil sauce sprinkled with chili peppers & parsley, chorizo in speciality red wine reduction sauce, and roasted potatoes. Each thing was better and better. Great service, as well. I think we were the only English speaking people in the place, but was not a problem to be understood. We had wine, as well, and the price for all was very reasonable - not inexpensive, but not prohibitive, either. It was so unexpected with the gas pumps outside, but would recommend highly to all!! (I marked not good for large groups, only because the restaurant is not very large.)
