    We had reservations yet had to wait 15 minutes as our table was still occupied. They were very busy and the hostess was not very nice. Our waiter was also very busy and it was often hard to get his attention. The food was good as usual but the service really lacked the evening that we were there.

    Very good food. Nice lunch menu. Service was haphazard at best. Slow and inefficient. Some staff seemed to understand neither Spanish nor English which made it difficult to get our points across at times. Primary waiter took our order but never checked up on us. Appetizers and salad brought out together then a long wait for food. After lunch we had to ask a busboy to ask our server to bring out our desserts which were included in the lunch special after waiting for some time. Wrong dessert brought to my sister in law. We asked several times for the correct dessert after the wrong one was removed. Finally it was over. When we received the bill an automatic 25% gratuity was added. There were only 3 of us! Ambiance was lovely. Food was good service was beyond awful. And some nerve adding a gratuity of 25% for a party of 3 without prior notice. I doubt that I would ever recommend this restaurant

    It wasn’t our usual experience: no attention was paid to the anniversary instructions. The food was blah at best and it was very surprising to us because food is always very good. The chocolate soufflé was good but was more of a lava cake than anything. We probably should have stuck to what we knew best. We’ve been going there for special occasions but not sure we’re going to return.

    Like always this is an amazing restaurant and one of my favorites. Cafe Catula is that kind of restaurant where you can enjoy a perfect combination of high professional service, beautiful environment and delicious food. But if you still doubt after read this review, I propose you to go to Cafe Catula and pretty sure you will confirm at your own my words. Enjoy it.

    Catula is a very special restaurant. I had a remarkable dinner with a friend and her husband as we celebrated her birthday. We all had selections from the fixed priced meal that included three courses and a bountiful glass of wine. The meals were exquisitely prepared and the surrounding artwork made it a truly memorable occasion. I had the lintel soup, red snapper with lobster sauce and coconut flan. The presentation was only exceeded by the culinary skills of the chef. I can’t wait to come back again when I’m in Miami.

    Although our waiters struggled with English, they were courteous and helpful. The prix fixe menu is a real value. We both had appetizers, fish entrees, a glass of wine and dessert for $39. The chef salad was a bit sup-par but everything else was well-prepared and tasty. We will be back!

    This has been one of my favorite spots to eat when I visit Miami which is often. However, I noticed a change in the flavor and quality of the food. Even the smell of the restaurant when u walk in has changed, it’s like they’ve change the oil in which the cook the food or maybe reuse the same oil over and over.. all and all was disappointed that my favorite dish which is the masitas rissoto wasn’t quite the same. Will think about it twice if I come back or not.

    Very nice decor. Outstanding customer service. Very friendly and welcoming. On point with attention. All the food was excellent but I want to especially mention the cod croquettes - best I’ve ever had. The guava dessert was amazing! Both are must haves. I had the Tuna steak entree which was excellent as well. The tuna portion was huge. We got a dozen oysters and some of the oysters were huge as well. Cant believe we hadn’t been here before but we will definitely be returning!

    This is my wife and my second great experience at Cafe Catula. They have an extensive menu with great variety of tapas, pasta, seafood, and meats. We started off with a delicious artichoke and jamón ibérico appetizer, followed by a superb Catula salad. We then split an exceptional Filet Mignonette Catula, and it was plenty for the two of us. For dessert we had the Tres Guayabas, a must if you love Guava. We sat at the tables on the bar side. and Mitchell the bar tender provided us with excellent service throughout the evening. He also makes superb Old Fashioned drinks.
