Talavera Cocina Mexicana
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.

Good food. Innovative Mexican cuisine. great service
Always a great place for authentic mexican cuisine and some fabulous margaritas. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. Great flan dessert.
Good service but the food was really basic, especially considering 20+ dollars prices for any course
Very good queso and octopus
Great atmosphere, great food, excellent service
Rude waiter. I asked him to put beans inside a cheese quesadilla as there was only one other vegetable option. He said the kitchen is busy. I got up hungry and ate at another restaurant after finishing my drinks and the guacamole
Excellent dinner. Had the pork belly mole and bread pudding for desert.
My wife and I enjoy good authentic Mexican food and Talavera is always right on when it comes to "real"Mexican food
Great food, a bit loud but overall a great place to visit.
Food and service was great as usual. However I did noticed the waiter a bit rushed in giving me the bill as folks were waiting for a table. We were still drinking our wine and I wanted to have coffee.
Had to tell him I was not ready for the bill.
Other than that everything was great.
I took my out of town family there for the first time and I was disappointed with the service. I saw so many servers yet the people that tended to us seemed rushed, turning before the finished their sentences. Just could have been better.
Overpriced for the quality of the food. The hostess did not care or appeared that she did not want to be there. The price that they are charging the food need to taste fresh and well seasoned. However with this restaurant neither was the case. The enchiladas tasted like it was a reheated frozen meal you get from the grocery store, and the octopus had zero seasoning even though the menu states otherwise. We will not be back.
Great food and excellent service. Great for date nights!
enjoyed the food and ambiance however the noise level made it impossible to enjoy any kind of conversation. perhaps other areas of restaurant are more quiet we were on hightops in the bar area
I've been to Talavera quite a few times. It seems to me there is always something off at this place. The food is the best thing they have going. The service, not so good. The hostess last night did not even bother to read the remarks I have put in my reservation. I had asked for a booth, and she wanted to put my girlfriend and I at the smallest table there was, when there were booths available... Basic lack of customer service and attention to detail. That's why the three stars given. Nothing to rave about.
It was a good experience. Food was good but nothing special. It's a great location to entertain your clients. Props to the bartender that makes really good margaritas.
The green ceviche is always great. Love their guacamole. Note - it comes with tortillas vs chips. But, you can ask for chips too.
Very bad experience, the service was horrendous, not attentive. Bad quality on the products. Small plastic spoons on the table for the salsas.They run out of some dishes but they don’t tell you before, at least will be good giving heads up once you receive the menu not after you make some choices. Not worth it.
We had to wait up front by front door for almost 10 minutes until anyone came to help us...front desk was unattended and lost of people were waiting. When maitre’d did show up, she was very disinterested and slow. Service was just as bad once we were seated. Server didn’t show up until we were seated for 10 minutes and was completely inattentive during meal. Very disappointed by service overall!!! Severe training needed by management.
Of the three restaurants owned by the Jaguar Group, this is the best one. Love their food.
Horrible in all ways
Talavera never disappoints! Love the food. The only complaint is that they never have enough chocolate paletas which are amazing!
Love the Mexican cuisine at Talavera. The Margaritas and chips and salsas are delicious.
Service is terrific too.
Wonderful food excellent , Strip steak tender my friends and I can’t wait to go back Live in wpb took brightline and Uber to Taverna it was worth it
We took some family from out-of-town to Talavera. Although we arrived late for our reservation we were seated right away. The waiter was outstanding, the food fresh and delicious . This is not your ordinary Mexican restaurant. The menu offerings are high-end, creative and authentic. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, lingering over the queso fundido and delicate tortilla wraps that accompanied it. We will be back for sure.
Talavera Cocina has authentic food served in an excellent location. The ingredients were fresh and nothing was too salty; a common complaint I have with Mexican restaurants. We will be back.
Perfect, table requested, the service and food excellent! lively watching World Cup and Mexico won !!! Fathers Day memories shared with my mom!
Outstanding meal and service! And Mexico won against Germany !! #worldcup2018
The food was very good and the location is great to walk in the Miracle Mile.
Overall great restaurant. Service was a bit slow and inattentive that night but food quality and taste was great!
This restaurant is, at best, unremarkable. The service was poor overall, because waiters were far too eager to take orders, not allowing us sufficient time to consider the menu. None of our group of 6 was favorably impressed with the quality of the food, and all of us normally enjoy Mexican food — otherwise we would have selected a different restaurant. And even though 5 of our group chose items from the “Coral Gables Restaurant Week” menu, the overall cost was rather high.
Enjoyed the chill Friday night vibe to have a casual meal with friends. Ambitious Margarita is delicious, as are the Ceviche Tostada and Chicken Flautas.
The food was phenomenal!!!
Overall a wonderful experience! Food is authentic! Service is exceptional!
I ordered the carne asada, termino medio. It arrive late, and dried out. The tortilla with mole was a cracker. The service was indifferent. I usually enjoy this restaurant. But it was a great disappointment Sunday. The waiter didn’t care. I ordered dessert and an espresso. The espresso was served first, and 15 minutes later the dessert was served. They can do much better.
I was on a business trip and Talavera was chosen because of the cuisine offered. I will offer that the food was quite good. However, the space is loud to begin with and, for whatever reason, the restaurant thought it was appropriate to have a mariachi band. This pushed the noise level way over the top and made the overall experience feel very cheap. The presence of the band also interfered with service. As the band would mingle around the space, servers would often wait for the band to move on before returning to a table. I would consider returning if I knew there was no chance of the band being present.
El servicio deja mucho que desear.
We love the quality of food , service and music 🌹🌹🌹🌹
Great restaurant!! Food and service was fantastic!! Everything we tried from the appetizer (guacamole with fried pork skins) to the entrees (octopus, carne asada and pork belly mole) was so delicious!! You must try the cilantro margarita!Actually try any margaritas, they were all fantastic. My only negative critique was the restroom. The restroom could have been more cleaner. It was dark and not pleasing to the eye.
Great service and food delicious 5 stars
