Here, in Pairings by Tomas Cuadrado restaurant we think the best way to present our restaurant and our cuisine is with this letter.

Tomas Cuadrado Capitan. Barcelona. 1970,
My career in the culinary arts began in 1986, when i started working at Port Pelegri Restaurant, which was a family business. From that experience, i decided to develop my career by getting inspiration from the restaurants i visited no only in Spain but throughout Europe and putting it into practice in my kitchen. In 1996, i obtained my degree as a Sommelier in Catalonia. Later, i expanded my career by becoming a professor at the UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), giving hospitality classes. I also participated in several international competitions related to my specialty as a sommelier, and i rated best Catalan Sommelier in the prestigious competition La Nariz de Oro in 2009. I am currently Executive Chef/ Sommelier in Miami, Florida work that I perform with great enthusiasm and passion.

It is the third time that I visit this Restaurant, Tomás never ceases to surprise us with some new dish, always attentive with his clients, he was this time introducing us to his new waiter, Jesus. Good service, attentive and professional. Thank you for making us enjoy my wife and me. Recommendable. We will come back again to surprise us again Thomas !. See you soon

What a wonderful restaurant! My wife and I were attending a concert at the American Airlines Arena and wanted to have a nice dinner before our show. I have to say that I was immediately transported to Spain. Tomas, the owner and Chef, took care of us from start to finish. It honestly felt like I was in his personal home. The service was excellent, the food was absolutely delicious, and the ambiance was quiet and relaxing. It was exactly what I was looking for. We had a few tapas, a bottle of wine, dessert and coffee. All delicious and with it's own culinary twist. I will definitely be back to this hidden gem. Gracias Tomas!

This place is a gastronomic gem. The chef is talented & very friendly. We enjoyed an olive oil tasting with warm bread, cava & Sauvignon Blanc, appetizers of gambas in black garlic sauce & ham/shrimp omelette. The black garlic sauce was delicious! Entrees were seafood rice & filet of fresh codfish topped with thin layer of mayonnaise & gratiné with cheese. It was spectacular! Dessert consisted of churros with dark chocolate for dipping & the most delicate crema catalana I’ve ever tasted. Price for all this $130. The service was so personal. The chef himself took care of us. I hope his restaurant thrives because we’d love to continue going. He told us menu is seasonal. We wish Chef Tomas much success!

Authentic Spanish food. Service was friendly and attentive. We got caught in terrible traffic, but my brother-in-law arrived on time. They made him feel welcome and unpressured while he waited and waited. Yummy. Well worth the trip.

This is the best Spanish restaurant that we have tried in Miami, the menu is not very extensive but is well curated and the food preparation and presentation is outstanding. This is a very small restaurant so service is very personal, make sure you make reservations. Our only issue was that valet parking was not available at 6:00 pm but management directed us to an alternate location

It was a wonderful and truly authentic experience with a carefully curated wine selection and dishes that rival those found at some Michelin-starred restaurants. Service was exceptional. I highly recommend and will return.

I had lunch with my daughter today. The restaurant is cosy and comfortable, with a modern but warm decor. Our waiter was exceptional--attentive without hovering, informative, polite, and enthusiastic about the menu. The food was exquisite. The fennel gazpacho with cantaloupe pearls was like nothing I had ever tasted before. The lentil salad was light, fresh, and delicious. The branzino was cooked to perfection, but the star of the meal was the black squid ink fideua. The desserts were a perfect ending to a delicious lunch. The crema catalana was perfection, but if you are brave I recommend the cabrales cheese ice cream. This is not a sweet dessert, but it is tasty. We will be returning soon.

Great food, great wine, and great service! Every dish was flavorful and made with fresh ingredients and fantastic flavors. You won't find another meal like this in Miami. We enjoyed everything we ordered; the chicken sausage, lentil salad, and seafood fideua. We can't wait to go back and introduce this restaurant to friends!

After seeing all the rave 5 star reviews, we were disappointed. The food was either bland or too salty. Nothing wow at all. And we ordered mostly based on the recommendation of our server. Despite us only being 1 of 2 tables in the restaurant, they didn’t have the original wine we ordered, nor one of our requested main courses...not well stocked. The wine was very good, however, and prices were not bad but still a $300 meal for 4 people. Don’t think I’ll give it a second try.

This is a hidden gem! Our server Julio was professional, pleasant, did not rush us and helped us pick out wines. The food was so interesting and delicious. We shared several dishes so we could experience different tastes. Pairings is quiet and quaint....just what we needed after a busy day in Miami.

It was a great culinary experience. Genuine flavors from Spain, but not the common typical dishes that you can find in any other Spanish restaurant.
Great selection of wines and impecable service.
We will be back!

A hidden gem in miami downtown! We had the tortilla, razor clams, croquetas and a Fideua all paired with a nice bottle of Albariño (they have a great selection of wines by the glass and bottle!). Emilio took care of us and he was a great host! Get there before the word gets out.

Hacia tiempo que No recibía un servicio, como los que estoy acostumbrada en España, totalmente profesional. Nos atendió Emilio. Pairings Restaurant es un ejemplo de una autentica comida española con toques creativos y de autor, realmente un sitio para visitar y que te dejes sorprender. Una experiencia muy agradable.
Volveremos pronto

Eureka! Discovered a new gem in beautiful downtown Miami (across from Miami Arena) called “Pairings by Tomas Cuadrado” . Tomas is from Barcelona, he is an excellent chef and sommelier with a strong passion for his food (he was rated best Catalan Sommelier in the “La Nariz de Oro”). Pairings is fine cuisine with a real explosion of Spanish flavors in a beautiful, relaxed Spanish-style setting with wooden tables and chairs and hand-picked decorations brought from Barcelona. The food was delectable, transporting you on a culinary trip through regions of Spain with mouth-watering dishes, charcuterie, meat, seafood, dessert and an impressive wine list. The wait staff was very welcoming, friendly and well trained, which enriches any restaurant experience. We will be back!
