It was what you might call an honest and decent effort at Spanish cuisine. Irritating my daughter’s food came out 15 minutes before everyone else’s. Service was good - very nice waitress.

Food was awesome. We had the seafood paella and added chorizo to it! We started w their house Sangria and empanada which were also delicious. Although server was really nice, it took a long time to cash out.

It was an amazing place. A friend and I visited Tapelia a couple of weeks ago and we enjoy the food and the drinks as well as the service.The place is located in the heart of Lincoln Rd and the environment is pretty nice. We tried as appetizer 12 baked oyster, really good for 2 to share, and as main dish we chose the sea food paella with lobster.We highly recommend the place to get a really nice food when u visit South Beach.😊

Just a great place to go, we had excellent service I think by a blond lady from Cuba (I think her name was Anna) the manager was attentive to all clients, the hamon iberico bellotta was excellent and the garlic shrimp were delicious overall the best restaurant on Lincoln

The service was awful. Had to ask for water 3 times. We were missing a place setting. It took asking twice to get it. The food took way too long to be delivered.

I am Spanish and I like to visit places that remind me of my country. This is definitely my favorite place.
The paella is exquisite they have many snacks which make you delight waiting for the paella, such as squid, mussels even super rich oysters !!!
Highly recommended, quality and price the best for the heart of South Beach and very good atmosphere and service.
I will definitely return here to have a delicious sangria very soon !!!

This place is so awesome and yummy. Everything was cooked perfectly, we got some seafood tower as appetizer, and paella as an entree. The place, food and the service needs a Michelin star.

Our whole experience was amazing from start to finish. I went to Tapelia with my fiancee after doing some tours around South beach, we were seating in the patio enjoying an A1 mojito waiting for our seafood paella with lobster. Waiter said the paella would take around 35 minutes so we placed some baked oyster as appetizer. Oyster were out of this world🤤, my fiancée from Lithuania said she never tried such a thing in Europe 🇱🇹
Our whole experience was amazing, we really enjoyed everything, would highly recommend this restaurant. Don’t leave south beach without stopping by ❤️

I can only say that this place is amazing. Today I went for the first time and I will definitely be back because the food and service is the best in Miami Beach. I tried the Seafood Paella with lobster and it felt like in Spain. Highly recommended!!!!

I went to tapelia a few days ago. My experience was INCREDIBLE. To be on Lincoln Rd the prices are good. I tried the seafood paella for me and my wife, and the seafood tower. Both of them was really tasty. I will comeback for sure👍

Estamos dos semanas de vacaciones por la zona y queríamos que los niños comieran algo distinto a pasta, pizza y burguers. Siempre dudas de un restaurante español fuera de España pero tengo que reconocer que la paella de pollo estaba muy bien. Pedimos mientras esperábamos el arroz unos calamares y pan con alioli y estaban estupendos. Además cerveza española con lo que no se puede pedir más. Muy recomendable y muy buen servicio y atención de los camareros.

Never been to such a poor quality restaurant. The paella tasted gross. I can’t believe this is the most famous dish in this place.

It was fine, nothing to write home about, another South Beach overpriced place with not a lot of options.
