With a modern approach to Latino cuisine, husband and wife team, Henry and Michele Salgado, prepare a blend of regional ingredients strongly influenced by the bustling barrios of Latino neighborhoods and the traditional Spanish countryside.

Chef Henry and his team of chefs work to prepare the freshest local seafood and seasonal vegetables available to provide the Spanish River Grill guests with an exceptional celebration of food.

From start to finish, the philosophy at the Spanish River Grill is that the intimate craft of preparing food should be exceptional and something the culinary and service teams take seriously. Each night the goal is to create a memorable journey of flavors and an experience to be shared with friends, family, and those you love.

By far the Best

This was by far the best dinner we have had since we have been here, in New Smyrna Beach. Not only the food top self but the service was as expected in Spain. Everyone took the time to make our evening enjoyable. My husband's critic of the place was very important, since he grow up in Colombia. We... read more

My wife and I travel from Ormond Beach to eat here a few times per year and it never disappoints. Spanish River Grille is one of our favorite restaurants in the area with a great menu, nice cocktail and wine selection and atmosphere. I would definitely recommend for the local or out of towner looking for a new find.

A surprisingly great restaurant in a strip mall. Super gourmet meals and an extensive bar. Service is pleasant; servers are knowledgeable; atmosphere is delightful. There is great entertainment Tuesday evenings and Sunday brunch.

We frequent Spanish River quite often for Sunday brunch and we love everything, but my favorite is the Blue Crab Benedict is to die for... They have great Mimosa specials, several flavors, and the live music outside is always great. They also have a wonderful dinner menu with fresh Seafood, Steak, and many other authentic Spanish items to choose from.... More

My son is a chef and worked here for a while when we lived in Florida. Whenever they come back to NSB he heads straight there as he considers it the best food in town. Great service, great food.

I had heard of Cerviche but never tried it - boy I was missing out. Also had a cheese plate appetizers that was very good. A little pricey but worth it.

We have been residents of this small beach town community south of Daytona for forty-four years. When SRG opened several years ago we were some of the first customers and I wrote a very favorable review at that time. Their TA rating has gone down since those early days. After last night's dinner I think I know the reasons for... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time while staying at a nearby B & B, the Night Swan. I made reservations by telephoning a few days before for a Thursday night. We arrived at 6 pm and the restaurant was not very busy but more people came in as we ate. They have a good happy hour from 5... More
