“A truly Spaniard restaurant in Coral Gables”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were really impressed with this Spaniard restaurant last night. The food is as Spaniard as manchego cheese is. Excellent wines from the region; the ambiance was modern but never lost it's touch from Spain. The service was terrific! We had Renee as a waiter and he knew every dish and wine to go with. Reservations recommended .

“Best Spanish food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We went last night with our family. We were 8, so we tried lots of tapas. Everything was excellent; the ham, the chorizo with sidra, the alcachofas were super good.
Best cochinillo we have had outside of Segovia.
Deserts were really good. The arroz con leche was my favorite.
Service was perfect.
We will definitely be back :)

“Awful experience!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I've been a regular customer of this place since they had their first location and it was a small cozy place with friendly staff and off course great food. But yesterday it became such a bad experience that it will be our last time coming to this place.

We arrived and requested a table, when we asked how long it was going to take the hosttess literaly in front of the owner shut my wife off and didn't let her talk. But she didn't do it once but twice. We complained to the owner who was standing right next to us and he didn't say a word.

So we decided to leave to another great spanish restaurant a few blocks away with a great flamenco show. So my message to the owners of Xixon: competition and variety of restaurants is really high, you are not the only option, so, if you don't train your staff appropriate, and treat your customers as they deserve, they will go away to other great places that Miami is offering.

Hi Gabriela

We are really sorry with the treatment you received during your last visit even though there is really no excuses our front desk was a little overwhelmed at the time trying to accommodate as best as they could everyone's request and inquiries for tables that we did not properly communicate to all waiting on the status of their reservation including yours. After the incident I did speak with the hostess about it.

I do hope we can make your next visit a much more memorable one as we try our best to make every dining experience a very pleasant one.

We do appreciate your business.

Regards,
Carlos Mattos

“So much...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

So much that is right!
So much food to choose from - I have been four times now and everything is wonderful. Try any of the fantastic Spanish ham dishes. They have Iberian (acorn fed ham)! Too many wines to list here and they are available by the glass so you can sample dish after dish and wine after wine.

Service is very attentive and fast.

When the bill comes you will find that the prices are reasonable.

Hi

Thanks for your recent review of our restaurant and we are very glad you are a satisfied repeat customer!

Yes, the Spanish Pata Negra Ham is one of Spain's most well known delicacies aside from perhaps the Paella. We are very glad you enjoyed our wines as well.

Hope to see you back soon, until then we really appreciate your feedback.

Regards,
Carlos Mattos

“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!
