“Nice but cramped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

The food is good, the drinks are good, the service is lacking (typical miami) and there is a hallway where they sat us that was super tiny and right near the restroom and with shelves sticking out over the table so you can bump your head. That definitely destroyed it for me. I recommend, but if they try to sit you in that hallway, don't let them. It is still one of the best places in Miami Lakes.

“Best in miami lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

I visit this restaurant at least 4 times a month because they have a different and excellent lunch special every day and wonderful tapas and wine. The atmosphere is great. The service quick and friendly and the decor very charming. Since it is not a chain restaurant and the owner is there frequently you will enjoy a very pleasant experience

“Best Dine in Miami Lakes area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

For those of you looking for a night getaway while you are in Miami Lakes, El Pimiento is the place to visit.

Great food, great service, LIVE music and entertainment, cozy and romantic and fun as well.

El Pimiento is where the locals go for a good time, a glass of wine and exciting food!

Try the Paella, the Lamb chops or the garbanzo fritos with chorizo, you will LOVE them!
