I came here with my daughter for dinner. I would not recommend the ceviche due to small amount and almost no fish. The shrimp tacos were delicious. The service wasn’t good-we came late though so probably everyone was already tired.More

We ordered the tacos and they were delicious. None of the “American” taco add-ins. Chips and salsa were great and loved the guacamole. Margarita was strong enough to taste. Very good! Will visit next time I’m in the vicinity.

Description
Sophisticated Mexican cantina serving classic & contemporary fare in a space decorated with pottery. We chose to call our restaurant TALAVERA because we believe that Talavera is the most beautiful and refined pottery in Mexico. Not only that, it also represents our Mexican roots. Talavera Restaurant brings a taste of Mexico to Coral Gables. A delicious blend of old and new world Mexico, Talavera features a variety of popular Mexican dishes varying from recipes that originated in traditional street markets to others that have been refined in the classic restaurants of Mexico City. The meticulously planned menu is prepared from fresh, authentic ingredients found in customary Mexican cuisine. It presents Mexican favorites in themed categories that represent the various types of dishes. Like the cuisine, Talavera's handcrafted cocktail selection will delight the senses with Mexican flavors and seasonal ingredients.
