“FIRED UP FOR SUCKLING PIG, A SPANISH TRADITION”

The savory aroma fills the Coral Cables kitchen with tradition as recipes and methods dating back to 18th century Madrid come alive in the hands of entrepreneur restauranteurs Sergio Catalina Bellmónt and his wife Claudia Romero. We use two farmers, one in central Florida, the other in Iowa, and we’ve been using them since the beginning. A lot of our customers come to us for our meats, and our particular way we prepare it. Along with our suckling pig, we’re also known for a traditional method of cooking meat on rocks. This is another tradition from Spain, which involves cooking the meat over rocks at the customer’s table. We instruct the customer as to how to remove the meat when it reaches the temperature they prefer, and it makes for an interesting and fun evening.

“FOOD YOU CRAVE BRUNCH WITH ANNA DE CODORNÍU”

Personally, sparkling wine can be a little sweet to me but Anna had such a nice balance. It was dry (which I loved) with just a few subtle underlying sweet notes. It was crisp and easy to drink. Honestly, I loved it and will definitely be drinking it again. Anna was paired with classic Spanish food from the Bellmont Spanish Restaurant on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. We had beautiful langoustines, huevos rotos (potatoes, eggs, ham, bread), whiskey cake and homemade ice-cream. The sparkling wine paired beautifully with the spectrum of dishes that we tasted. It complimented, it didn’t overpower. Another thing I am loving about Anna is that it is so reasonably priced. A bottle runs about $15, which honestly for a good bottle of sparkling wine is nothing. They also recommend mixing Anna with other natural fruits and accompaniments for a lighter mixed drink. Which let’s be real mimosas never get old but sometimes you just want to mix it up.

“DIARIO LAS AMERICAS BELLMÓNT RESTAURANT, UNA JOYA DE LA BUENA COCINA ESPAÑOLA”

En Miami abundan los restaurantes españoles pero Bellmónt Restaurant, enclavado en el corazón de Miracle Mile, cuenta con unos sabores que no encontramos en otros locales. “No hay otro secreto que usar productos auténticos”, aseguró Sergio Bellmónt, quien junto a su esposa, Claudia Romero, lleva las riendas del establecimiento gastronómico. De hecho, muchos de los ingredientes son importados de España. Además del jamón ibérico, los chorizos y los quesos, y por supuesto los vinos, Bellmónt cuenta con pescados, mariscos y legumbres que trae de la Madre Patria. Incluso el horno, en el que asan el plato estrella cochinillo a la leña, fue traído de un viejo pueblo español. Con estas apreciaciones podríamos decir que estamos ante un auténtico consulado del buen comer del país ibérico.

In Miami there are many Spanish restaurants but Bellmont Restaurant, nestled in the heart of Miracle Mile, has some flavors not found in other places. “There is no secret that using genuine products,” said Sergio Bellmont, who with his wife, Claudia Romero, takes the reins of dining establishment. In fact, many of the ingredients are imported from Spain. In addition to the Iberian ham, sausages and cheeses, and of course wines, Bellmont has seafood and vegetables which brings from the Motherland. Even the oven, where the signature dish roasted suckling pig to the wood was brought from an old Spanish village. With these findings we could say that this is a genuine consulate of good food of the Iberian country.

Great atmosphere, incredibly friendly services, and excellent food. The bread and “seafood omlette” before the meal (complimentary) was the best included appetizer I have ever had. Good sized portions. Nice and quiet to eat alone or with someone(s) on a week night.”

MIAMI EATER

If you need a new date spot, try Bellmont, it sounds pretty date spot-ish. And it’s also very spanish. Think iberico ham, pig legs cooked in a Spain-imported oven, ribeyes …”

Reviews

  • Very nice restaurant. Everything is cooked on site, when ordered, so plan to go with time to spare, but the tranquil pace is part of the charm of the place . The seating arrangements were comfortable, the service was excellent and so was the food. We plan to return and are recommending the establishment to our friends.

    Mariela Rossel Pritikin

  • We really enjoyed our dining experience. The service was excellent, the restaurant itself was beautiful and the food reminded me of my time in Spain. Parking in the municipal lot behind the restaurant was also very easy and convenient. Highly recommended and will definitely return!

    Charles Kahn

  • Excellent! The Best! It’s a must to visit! Best Spanish from Spain restaurant around!

    Annie Clark

  • Fantastic spanish cuisine in Coral Gables. The restaurant is family owned and they gave us excellent personal service. The suckling pig was crunchy and delicious. The tenderloin or Rodaballo was superb. It was seared on the outside and you finish cooking it on a hot stone at your table. Fun and delicious! Chorizo croquettes were also a favorite. Save room for dessert. Turron ice cream or Banda de Manzana (apple tart) are both winners. We loved the Flamenco show. You should definitely check it out.

    Sandra Haugen

  • Excellent place to wine and dine. Suckling pig was delicious, as were the lamb chops and chorizo a la cidra. Wish there would have been a Fabada Asturiana but maybe that will be added to the menu in the future? Nevertheless, great place. Can’t wait to come back.

    Armando Neno Ramirez

  • Awesome, amazing! Go this place is great food, consistent. Owners are always there and they make you feel very welcomed. It’s like being in their home, in Spain, with flamenco music in the background. We always have a great time!
