    Nice area/ambiance, a staff... very helpful and courteous... the food was outrageously good! We did not have a single bad choice. All the food was fresh and piping hot -- which is a HUGE plus for our family. We are definitely coming back... and plan to celebrate special occasions.

    This is a classic tapas bar. It reminds me of Bazare out on the Beach. Food is very good, but trust your instincts and avoid "recommendations" for house favorites. Going with what we liked worked well. The two recommendations fell flat and we did not eat them. That said, our server took care of it and we were very happy. Service was top notch, and expect food to come quick. It is a great place for couples to get a date night in! A definite recommend.

    Ate from the Miami Spice menu. The codfish fritters and the bread pudding were great but the entree chicken was very bland. No seasoning, no salt and the tomato sauce seemed to just sit on top of the chicken rather than blend the flavors together. I had to pack it with salt and pepper for taste.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! There is a very well crafted tapas menu that mixes old favorites (tortilla espanol, garlic shrimp, gazpacho) with bright new twists (Bulla eggs and ham, tuna tartar, Pintxo-style cumin pork), as well as a short list of larger plates. The roast sucking pig was very creative--yummy, meltingly tender pork "bricks" with crispy tops. I'm all about the wine and I found the Spanish-centric list to be full of well-priced gems, particularly in the Rioja category. Our server, Alejandro, was always there when we needed him and gave us expert advice when we asked about various menu items. Outstanding experience from the start to the finish of a memorable meal.

    We wanted to go eat Spanish food and found this restaurant on the list for Miami Spice. We made reservations and were seated right away. The restaurant was a little noisy but it had good ambiance. The server was extremely nice and very attentive. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The Miami Spice menu has a lot of choices and they also have a good variety of wines.

    The waiter explained that the tapas concept means dishes will come out as they are prepared, yeah we get it no problem. Well the first two dishes came out within 5 minutes; great. Then we sit there for about 45 mins with no food. The waiter was VERY slow to refill our drinks. Finally the main course comes. At this point we are over this restaurant and just want to leave. I tell him to cancel our last tapa order which he scoffs at. It took another 30 mins to get the dessert and close the tab. Overall the food was great, the server was very knowledgable, the timing of it all was horrific. Their supposed famous Sangria was just okay. I'll give them another chance just because the food was so good.

    This was an intimate business dinner. We were seated right away. The place was pretty busy fit a Tuesday night but we had no problem with service. The tapas were delicious. We asked the waiter to starts us out with a cheese and meat platter. The selection was great and we tasted some choices that were pretty unique. Dinner of the people we were with had been to Spain and they were also impressed. The croquetas and bacalao were our favorite. The decor was classy. Only complaint but be the seating (no booth just counter height chairs and tables) but that was minor to the food.

    Overly priced food for the quality and service received. Service was extremely slow. One person in our group got their meal after everyone had already finished and table cleared. Staff didn't seem overly concerned even after we inquired numerous times. Upstairs room was extremely loud and they need sound baffles. Good place to get a drink at Happy Hour and perhaps a couple of tapas - other than that way overrated.

    well worth a trip from south beach or wherever. I went for brunch and fell in love with brunch (savory dishes with pancakes for dessert). Sp worth a visit, the service the food, the white sangria...highlights the octopus salad..the octopus was a star, not an after thought , the pintxo murono(spelling) amazing pork dish with a delicious light fresh green sauce. we loved everything and can't wait to revisit!

    Except for the cod fritters everything else was relatively mediocre. Portions are huge, something that youvwill never find on authentic Spanish cuisine. Menu is in imaginative, and food we ordered (chicken and Spanish omelette) were completely insipid. To boot, even the desert was below average. Other than the typical tapa to join a drink I do not tecommend this restaurant.

    This place was great. Went for my birthday, and because they participate in Miami Spice. We ordered some things off of the regular menu as well. Service was excellent and on-point. Waitress was not at all shy to give recommendations of what she would personally order or opt for, given a choice between a few items on the menu. I like this, because it makes the experience all the more personable, as well. Octopus salad is AMAZING -- try it, don't hesitate. The sangria is great, and the wine list boasts a great selection of Spanish wines (some others, too).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    Very disorganized reception, they were out of NY Strip, only steak on menu (we had a 6:30 pm reservation), tortilla was returned because it was cold and the second time around the potatoes were frozen, Crema Catalana was horrible (tasted like lemon and had a random piece of strawberry floating in it), flan de coco tasted nothing like coco and the server had too many tables to adequately serve us, she had stations on both floors of the restaurant. We loved the churros, but when we asked for a second order we were told they were out for the evening, it was 8:00 pm when this happened, primetime for weekend dining in The Gables. I was not impressed at all. It was my favorite place to eat when it was Por Fin, but very disappointed with Bulla.

    Nice restaurant,went there for lunch. Food is really good. We tried some cured meat and cheese,the meatballs,croketas. I had the octopus salad which was amazing and my wife had the chicken dish which she said was kind of overcooked and dry. It gets kind of noisy since the restaurant is on a busy intersection and they open those big doors behind the bar and you can hear all the noise from the street. Overall good experience and probably will go back if in this area.

    1st time here I came with my best friend and we had a blast. Spectacular service by Ana Maria,very friendly and attentive. Went again following Sunday for my fiancé Bday.Don't recall the server name but he is chubby.The server assumed I knew how things work there so he didn't have to explain anything.ALL the items arrived AT THE SAME TIME.Never offered sparkling or flat water and served tab water. Plates were never changed.We asked for the 2nd mimosa took forever. Server came gave us the mimosas, he acted like he did not forget them then he told us that the unlimited mimosas were no longer been served and that he will transfer the table to Jefrey.Never told us until when we were allowed to order the unlimited mimosas.

    On a whim I choose Bulla Gastrobar based on Yelp Reviews and was not disappointed. We shared mostly vegetarian dishes (Spinash with Pine Nuts, Tomatoes on Crossiant, Olives, Dates wrapped in Bacon) All were tasty. The Wine list is well appointed and our server Sam gave great explanations on their bouquet, and the one who choose was Supreme. We talked the night away, and by 12 Midnight they had pretty much emptied out. Our Reservations started at 9:30 From start to finish a very nice experiance.
