I heard about bocaito as one of the best spanish restaurant in the area.
I went there on a friday night with my husband...what a disappointment!
I asked for croquetas de bacalao... they did not have any taste of bacalao! they were really creamy with no taste at all.
My husband mentioned it to the owner. he came back to us to say that we were right. They had a bad batch of croquetas. THAT'S IT.

So what? I have to pay for croquetas de bacalao without bacalao? Paying for a bad batch?
Even if we ate it, we were at least hoping for a discount or a dessert, coffee...but nothing.

The main was solomillo cabrales. Ok but not exceptional...
The most important thing for me is the service, the waitress was good but I'm disappointed about the reaction of the owner. It could have been a bad batch, I would have been happy about the owner offering us something else.


I don't think I will come back.

We reserve a 5 star rating for a WOW experience and that's what Bocaito delivered this evening.
The restaurant space is not large- which is great for the ambiance. Service was terrific with the owner personally attending to our table, and the food is the best of all. Every dish (we did multiple tapas) outdid the previous making the food the highlight of them all- as it should be!

We will definitely be back for more.

I went to Bocaito a couple nights ago, on a recommendation from a friend. I am pleased to say my trip to Bocaito was excellent. The scenery brought to mind a authentic tapas restaurant in Spain. The servers were extremely helpful and accommodating. To begin we tried some delcious meatball, tortilla Española and some artichokes! For the main entree we had some delicious grouper topped off in a fried garlic sauce, as well as a filet mignon with delicious cheese sauce. It was a great dining experience and I hope to visit again soon!

Delicious food with extremely attentive staff in a casual setting. Tapas are a must. Croquetas are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Try the bacalao ones (Cod fish). Also loved their cold shrimp tapas called "salpicon de marisco". Succulent large shrimp with finely diced tomatoes and onions. Add a couple of pieces of their warm crusty bread and you are in for a treat. We liked this dish so much that went ahead and ordered another shrimp tapas. This time a hot one where the shrimp were complemented with carmelized garlic, olive oil and artichokes. Delicious. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices too. It's like a little piece of Spain in the neighborhood. I'm coming back soon. Sheros

The food, wine and service were outstanding. The menu centers mostly around tapas...just a few entrees offered which was fine with us. A beautiful little spot on Coral Way. Wish we had more time to sit and savor...but will definitely return soon.
