In this restaurant located in Coral Gables, specialized in Spanish Mediterranean food, you can taste fresh fish from the seas of Spain, as well as a wide range of imported products and wines that give high quality to the elaboration of their dishes, which also makes their prices a bit high. Its decor is conservative so a touch of renovation... More

First time in Miami, overnight before taking a cruise through Central America, so thought we should keep to the theme of Spanish influence - easy of course in Miami. A brief walk around town with a shortlist from TripAdvisor led us to make a booking here. Restaurant was quiet - only two days after Christmas. Customers largely local and Spanish... More

A group (7 couples) went to La Dorada last Saturday for a friends Christmas lunch. It was a special meal that takes a few days to prepare and has to be ordered days ahead of time. I don't remember the name of the Spanish meal, but it started with chicken soup; then we were served various meats, chicken, a pigs... More

If you want to take a trip to culinary Spain there's no need to get on a Plane. Can't go wrong with "pescado a la sal". Fish baked in salt crust. (Not salty since salt is applied with fish scales on). The croquettes are a must have along with many other delicacies. Majority of fish and crustaceans are flown in... More

If you want to taste TRUE Spanish food, La Dorada is your place. This restaurant transports you to a true Spanish gourmet food place in the Mediterranean. Ingredients are flown in from Spain daily and the quality is simply outstanding. Highly recommended if you want a true and authentic taste of Spain in Miami.

Did find this restaurant a bit pricey for the décor and the food. The fish plates were good but mine was quite salty and nothing special. Did expect more . Must say that the service was excellent.
