Some friends recommended this restaurant and a group of us went.

Good parking area. Food is very, very good. On the expensive side. Many wines to select from. We picked a few bottles for about $30.00 each. Service is good. They are very attentive.

When the bill came two of the prices on the bill caught our attention because we remembered the price on the menu.

We requested to see the menu and we were right. Two items have a different higher price from the ones shown in the menu. We showed it to the Spanish lady waitress and she said that their prices had gone up. We responded that we were going to pay what was shown in the menu. So she changed the bill. A couple who was present said that the same thing happened to them weeks before, and also that an extra item had been added to their bill.

We also noticed the following. Their wine glasses are big. When they serve the wine they are very generous (with your bottle) so the wine lasts very little and they are very insistent that you order another bottle.

My recommendation: very good food. but pricey. Double check your bill well against the menu. Also, serve your wine yourself and do it at your pace, not theirs. Pay only the prices on the menu.

Good luck. Bon Appettite!

For those of you who don't "awblaw", bocaito means a small mouthful. We went the other night after finishing up at the office. Many folks do the endless tapas routine but we wanted just 1 then dinner. So we had a delicious squid with a red sauce over white Valencia rice to start. Thursday
s special is paella and it was great. Even the warm bread they bring out is yummy. Needless to say, some red wine is mandatory, as far as we're concerned. We were too full to order dessert but the owner debuted for us a complementary sample of a light flan like cheesecake with strawberry topping. They have flamenco on weekends so we will be back. the place is bigger than it looks from the street. Highly recommended.

We went for a happy hour time, actually its not happy hour special, tapas are little overprice, taste is excelent, service A+, the flamenco show expectacular..
The space its very little, the flamenco singer has a very tiny room to dance and sing, but the show its very nice.
Will be good more specials on drinks, and tapas. Will not comeback.

The food is quite good (I can compare it to Spain) and the owner and most of the staff are Spanish and not Latin American. This is unusual in Miami.

The ambience is intimate and subdued (though Friday has lovely live Flamenco music Aldo subdued), The food is typical and good Spanish, the service is friendly and mostly attentive.
