My banker took me to this restaurant the first time earlier this year for lunch and I couldn't wait to go back and try the fish cooked in salt. Old school and beyond delicious, the chef insisted we try his soup of the day and brought it to us anyway when we didn't order it the passion and the pride... More

La Dorada is sometimes mistaken as a seafood restaurant. It is really a Spanish restaurant. I believe a lot of people go there with a different expectation and maybe dissatisfied that they don't find common American seafood dishes. I've eaten here several times. Their fish dishes are some of the best I have ever enjoyed. The sea salt fish offerings... More

If you are looking to enjoy real Spanish food, in a relaxed atmosphere, you must visit this place. The service of its collaborators is exceptionally good. I especially recommend the seafood fiduea and the sea bass "a la sal". For dessert don't forget to ask for the Spanish Nougat Ice Cream.

Amazing restaurant with the old way of serving fish directly from Spain... Bogavante with rice and lubina a la sal delighted our palate. They have an amazing choice of Grappa. Waiters should pay more attention to the offerings and being more present, it's just a suggestion.

Irresistible invitation When in Miami, we consider ourselves through and through 'Brikellistas'. An expression coined to describe people who reside, work and shop in the district of Brickell, and breathe its 'polluted' air. We seldom venture outside this concrete jungle, but when we were invited to go for a pleasurable fish dinner at 'La Dorada', we readily accepted the invitation.... More

We had the most amazing meal yesterday. We went with a business colleague to have lunch. Even thought I've lived in Miami my whole life and my office is in Coral Gables, I'd never heard of La Dorada. And that's strange because this restaurant is a real gem. First of all the greeting we got walking in was as warm... More

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
