Mexican
Mexico, home of Talavera, the unique fine art pottery from the 16th Century, native of the city of Puebla.


This genuine and refined Mexican spirit of the Talavera art sets the ground for the spirit of our menu. From the "Huarache" grill, a series of delicate dishes served on a corn tortilla base, to a variety of regional specialties from Sonora to Oaxaca, from Michoacan to Puebla, from Jalisco to Yucatan.

Talavera, the art of a genuine and refined taste of Mexico.

This was my first lunch time experience at Talavera and I’m happy to say they knocked it out of the park. Having worked in the restaurant industry myself in the past I can say with confidence they checked all the right boxes for service, flavor and experience.

As always the food didn't disappoint. Service was slow even though there were only 3 tables inside that were occupied and one one outside. It was uncomfortably hot inside the restaurant. Prices were fair.

I love this place. It was the first time going. Food was amazing but I felt like the customer service was being a little pushy. I felt rushed to order and to eat the whole time I was there. It was uncomfortable.

Really good food and super nice service. We sat outside and the restaurant in front had tv with all the volume up which made it impossible to hear the conversation at our table.

I'm super duper glad I came across this amazing Mexican/Peruvian joint!!! The service coming in was very welcoming and outdoor dining was very nice in the evening so it wasn't too hot. They put a bottle of hand sanitizer in every table, the staff wears a mask at all times and gloves as well. My boyfriend and I went had the 3 course dinner which included appetizer, entrée, and dessert. Happy hour is 4-7PM weekdays and drinks are half off! I ordered a sangria for $4.50 which is a great deal! Don't hesitate to try this place out because every bit you take is heaven and atmosphere is very relaxing and friendly Cannot wait time come back again!!

We went to Talavera while in Miami to take our son to UMiami. The seating was outdoors at Miracle Mike. The food was good and service was good, not the best though. We had a hard time tracking down our waiter a few times, although but he was very nice. I had the skirt steak which was excellent. I would recommend Talavera.

Had to seat outside and the heat was uncomfortable at times. The food was excellent and so was the service. Margaritas one of the best around Miami.

Our reservation was at 8:30pm, we arrived at 8:35pm. They said they could not seat 5 of us together and that was NOT stated on the reservation page. I would have made a reservation at another restaurant as we try to support the local businesses and eat out every Saturday night. They said it would be 30-40 minutes and I told her we had a reservation. The hostess was not empathetic that I was there for a birthday and was extremely upset I would be waiting. There were two tables with families of five with small children but in my opinion five people is five people. A few people without reservations received a table before we did although they had less people they should have been holding a table aside since they needed two tables and they could have sat three of us. I had to approach the hostess five to eight times to point out that there is a curfew and if we are not seated soon we will not be able to eat. The hostess said said there was no longer a curfew which was incorrect information. Finally we were seated; two of us in one table and three in a table half the size of the table for two. I told the server that was completely unacceptable and they needed a bigger table. There were two tables that needed to be cleaned that were bigger and finally someone cleaned one and the rest of my family was seated. Thee water took forever to be refilled and it was very hot outside. The food was fair and we were rushed to eat. We should have been compensated for the waiting, inconvenience and being rushed. A horrible eating experience and we will never go back. An apology should have been given and they have no right to take reservations when they do not seat people according to them.

Talavera serves the most authentic Mexican food in town. My favorite dish is the Chile Relleno — it’s off menu, but they usually have it. It’s reminiscent of the one my Abuela would make. Their salsitas and margaritas are also great!! You can’t go wrong dining here if you like good food and good service.

Surprisingly poor. Tasteless seviche. No lime or lemon juice, onion barely avocado. Didn't taste the onion, fish was very soft. Then ordered the carne asada a la Talavera and it was presented well done when we had ordered one medium and one medium-rare. Waiter changed it and brought us medium-well. Wasn't worth the $27.00. Will try again. I have eaten there better.
