Immerse yourself in the most delectable dining experience Tampa Bay has to offer at The Maritana Grille. At this signature restaurant of the beautiful Loews Don CeSar resort, you’re surrounded by 1,500 gallons of salt water aquariums filled with colorful, native Florida fish. You’ll dine on the freshest local seafood prepared with pure, organic ingredients in a New American style. With an extensive wine list and world-class service, it’s no wonder The Maritana Grille was voted one of the Top 10 seafood restaurants in the United States by the Gayot Guide, and has received AAA’s 4-Diamond Rating for the past 15 years. The vibe is casual, no jackets required. The atmosphere is festive yet intimate and the food is incomparably delicious. The Maritana Grille turns every meal into a magical dining experience.

I celebrated my 50th birthday alone at the Don Cesar. For my birthday, I made reservations at the Maritana Grille at the hotel. The staff welcomed me with open arms, and wished me a Happy 50th Birthday, and took care of anything I needed. They even had a birthday card waiting for me and surprised me with a birthday dessert.... More

Was looking for a nice fish restaurant for my birthday. Was tired of the FL. shore's version of Nick's - any fish you wish! where the smell of low tide would practically knock you over as you walked into the restaurant. What I found was an amazing oasis of civility and cuisine, right out of a Fitzgerald novel from the... More

While I had a rental car in the lot, the table next to us was not staying in the hotel and recieved a voucher for free parking. I did not as it is for those coming just to dine.

Four of us dined at the Maritana for my birthday dinner and we all agreed it was one of the best meals we have ever had. From the drinks at the beginning, through the amuse bouche, meal and dessert at the end, everything was artfully prepared and delicious to consume. The service from the wait staff, especially the delightful Brad,... More

This restaurant is divine. The food is elegantly prepared, and presented in a high scale fashion. They met our dietary needs as one of us has celiac disease. The staff was very professional, the fish tanks peaceful to view, and the ambiance set the stage for a wonderful evening. Our waiter was Tim. He was knowledgeable, friendly and personable. This...

We had dinner at The Maritana on our first night of two, staying at the Don Cesar. The decor is pleasant but not outstanding. The waiter - although very excitable and agitated, was very attentive to our needs (including that one of us is vegetarian). The meals were good, but tiny in that way that this kind of upscale restaurant... More

Though we had a "limited" selection for our meal due to our size, no one seemed to notice. The kitchen was great at accommodating some special dietary needs and the service (planning & execution) was excellent. Thank you Radhika!
