“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...

“Spanish food never tasted so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

I am American born, Cuban parents, Spanish descent... This food was out of this world! Spanish food never tasted like this before! The chanquetes (Baby white fish) with fried eggs and alioli are just so delicious! What a way to start an unforgettable meal. Then we had a lovely salad (lettuce wedges with an amazing dressing). I don't know if it was on the menu. We wanted a salad and he (the owner or manager?) said he would have something different prepared for us. This was brought with delectibly fried sardines. Wow! I don't even like sardines, but my husband does so we had to try them. They were very good! Main course was la Dorada sea bass. Brought out with vegetables. Amazing! The presentation of how they remove the salt and remove the skin is a treat to watch. For dessert I had crema catalana (comfort food...reminds me of my great grandmother). The food is incredible and the service was very good! No complaints. The wine is a bit overpriced. Dinner for two with a bottle of wine, two desserts and espressos...$240 average. Husband returned on business dinner a few weeks after. and everyone in group was "oh'ing and aw'ing" it was so Good!

“Extremely disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We ate at La Dorada last year and absolutely loved the paella. We could not wait to go back this year and order it again. What we got was nothing like the paella we got last year. It was tasteless and contained very little shell fish. I don't know if they have a new chef or if they changed their recipe, but something was very wrong. The only thing I tasted was garlic. My favorite part of paella is the rice, which soaks up all the flavors of the seafood, this was flavorless. Unfortunately, we will not be going back.

“I think this is the best Spanish (from Spain) restaurant in Miami!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Miami has a lot of Spanish restaurants...BUT...this is it. The food is the best, service great....everything is fresh...some things they bring from Spain...so it is on the expensive side..but worth it.
