Paella is delightful!

I had the opportunity to dine with business associates here recently, and truly enjoyed the atmosphere an service. While we were limited to one dish, it was likely the best Paella I have ever had. Other friends that have dined here recommended it as well.

Wow! We really enjoyed this restaurant. The seafood was so tasty, artful surroundings, we really loved it all! Books and local lore available, very casual, but so good!

I was surprised that they charged $24 for lobster Mac and cheese with no lobster in it. I probably would not eat here again if I return.

I've been here and few times and can just say that it's pretty good. The décor would lead you to believe that you are in for a bit more of dining experience that you actually get. Probably won't go back unless I hear of improvements in the food.

We came here for some tapas and drinks, having already stopped by 2 other tapas places in the area (surprising focus on small plates food for such a tiny town). There was a live musician about to play which initially I was dreading because I am not usually a fan. BUT he turned out to be amazing. He sang loads... More

Busy afternoon and the service was pretty slow but the Fish Tacos and Grouper Sandwich was worth waiting for.

Met our friend here for lunch and it was excellent. The service is quick and friendly and the food is pretty good. I had the fried flounder and it was flaky and wonderful. The place was not very busy so got great service. I would def eat here again.

My new favorite place in Apalachicola! I had the Venezuelan black bean soup and small crab quesadilla. It was mouth watering and the plate was cleaned! I can't wait to try out the other dishes.

Sorry to say but the food was terrible, I am British and Tapas should be authentic Spanish style, this was a bad choice for us, as the food just American junk food, the Patas bravos was nothing like there was not tomato base to it just rosemary! and the rest of the tapas was basically mini burgers etc, would have...
