    I went for the first time last week with an old friend and ordered five tapas. All were amazing and I can't wait to go back. Not to mention the awesome happy hour. From five to seven everyday all drinks half off. This place is a gem in the gables. Not stuffy or anything, great food, relaxed, romantic vibes. A little pricey but worth every penny. My favorite was the huevos bulla. Will definitely be back soon.

    I invited my family here for a late Sunday dinner. Everything we ordered was very good and I believe improved since my first visit. Our server was very nice but around 10:30 you could tell that he was anxious to wrap things up and kept forgetting some of the items that we had ordered. Didn't offer coffee or dessert, we had to ask. Again, he was nice the whole way through but you could tell his mind was someplace else. I'd still go back just not as late.

    What a great find! I was looking for a light meal on the way to a jazz performance and found a restaurant that took me back to Spain. The tapas selection was broad and the grilled octopus the best I have had anywhere. The wine list included a great variety of Spanish wines, and coincidentally it was still happy hour when I arrived. Jeffrey B was our waiter ably assisted by others who together kept the tapas plates coming at a perfect pace. We thoroughly enjoyed Bulla Gastrobar and will return. Based on the way the place filled up that Saturday evening, I don't think I am the only one who thinks this a great restaurant!

    Dined on 2/22/2014
    We were so excited to visit this venue. The menu looked great. The tapas were the best of the items offered, the main dish not so much. Their specialty of the house tapa was a flavor explosion! Now the service that's another story. Horrific at best. While people came and went we were kept waiting endlessly for our items to arrive. The manager was advised by our waitress that the kitchen had messed up our order. He came by the table and engaged us in conversation regarding our experience and we were kind in our description. He apologized and sent us a free desert and the bill and his business card to call him before our next visit. Not sure if we will visit again. First impressions are lasting ones....

    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!!

    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. 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.

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.
