    I've been to Bulla many times and decided that it would be a great place to have dinner on Valentine's day with a friend. Unlike many restaurants on that day, the service was excellent and very prompt. You were able to order from the entire menu, instead of being forced a fixed menu. This is one of my neighborhood favorites and did not disappoint. Try the Huevos Bulla if you can, it's a little bit of heaven!!

  • Bulla never disappoints

    Dined on 2/13/2014
    To the contrary, it just gets better. Menu is downsized and down-priced a bit from prior incarnation as Por Fin, but under same skilled ownership and management they've created the quintessential tapas and wine bar. Food is fresh, both basic and imaginative, and well-presented in a lively atmosphere with a great vibe. This is Spanish comfort food, the way people love to eat these days. Don't miss the basics like pan con tamate and sweet nutty jamon Serrano, and the unique dishes like Bulla huevos. Great selection of specialty cocktails, extensive Spanish wine lists, and a staff that greets you like you're a guest in their home. My wife and I love this place for lunch, dinner or any other excuse; we can't wait to go back.

  • Wearying high concept restaurant.
    HenryFlaglerVIP
    Dined on 1/29/2014
    Wearying high concept restaurant. Unremarkable, bland food. Beautiful but contrived space. Like a Disney idea of an Andalusian tavern. The staff don't give you a moment's rest. Like the line from Glengarry, Glen Ross: "always be closing". (Google it.) Everyone amped, true-believing, and on the upsell. I went for dinner. I felt like I was being indoctrinated. I was worn out by the time I finished eating. People, it's tapas, not a political movement. There are better, more authentic Spanish restaurants in the area (head east on Coral Way, or just go to Little Havana). None of them have the Bulla put-on pizzaz but they're about 1/4 of the price and none of the Marketing major attitude.

    Great food and very attentive service we went on a Monday for a date and the place was still pretty full and energetic. All the dishes came out together at the right time and were at the correct temperature the flavors of the food were wonderful and they even offer you comment cards should you believe they need to improve. The offered a small bouche amuse in between our mains on the house and the wine and beer list is a good one. Overall great experience and it is money well spent the restaurant is beautiful and anyone will enjoy themselves.

    We had a nice time at Bulla except for a couple of things. They ran out of two of the most popular tapas. We also had to wait 20 to 25 minutes beyond our reservation time and the attitude from the blonde hostess seamed that this was ok to happen. I can understand 10 to 15 minutes, anything else and an apology should be offered at least. Need better planning in this area. Miguel the server was very friendly and knowledgable.

    After reading some of the negative reviews I was a bit nervous, but since I was tired of all the Italian in Coral Gables my family decided to give it a try. It was perfect. The service was just right as the food was brought at speeds that did not overwhelm the table. The food was also delicious. As for the energy level, we were there on a Monday night and the place was hopping - another surprise.

    The ambience was very appealing. The waiter was very helpful and attentive. The seating is a bit uncomfortable when you are there for two hours. An option to sit at normal level seats might have been better. However the overall dining experience is very good and well worth the visit. The foods were all delicious and interesting. A little bit of Spain in Coral Gables.

They took forever to serve water and eben when we had empty cups they didnt bother To filled them, we had to ask for more water several times. They also put like 3 plates extra in out check; however a bery nice Manager took them out and gave us a complimentary plate For the mistake!!!

    We found the place since we were staying at an airport hotel nearby but did not want to eat the marginal food within walking distance. It was really lovely. The service was swift and charming and the food was really interesting. We had just returned from 10 days of fine dining in the Caribbean and this restaurant was better than any place where we ate on our vacation. We will for sure eat there again on our next trips.

    This was previously the Spanish restaurant Por Fin, now remodelled in a way that opens its large central bar onto the street. There are tables around the bar as well as in separate rooms on the ground floor and upstairs. It is a friendly, lively scene. We ordered albondigas, pan con tomate, a sausage plate, and espinacas and they were all delicious. The coca de caprese was probably my favourite of the small plates (we didn't get any large plates, and for 3 people, this was quite enough food!) The desserts were even better, especially the torrija, which is like a divine French toast. The churros were crispy and hot and came with two sauces, chocolate and dulce de leche. The San Amaro Albarino was the perfect white. Overall- terrific!

    My wife and I stopped in on a Friday night. Had enjoyed previous "incarnation", but the new place definitely built on best aspects. The scene is pretty active right now with lots of folks at the bar by 7. New dining room layout is good, but be aware most of the tables in main area are high tops. We did several courses of tapas. All were well done. the "angry potatoes" were exceptional.

    Every item we tried on the brunch menu was very good. The cochinillo dish was excellent. The croquetas are unique enough to give a try, and the fig sauce is not too sweet. The layout of the restaurant is a bit awkward, but there is an energy to the place, even during brunch. My only negative is that it was a bit expensive after all was said and done.
