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.

Fine dining at its finest. Food, staff and dessert were amazing. It was Bill's birthday. He was greeted with a Happy Birthday from the staff upon entering.

Stayed at Don CeSar 31 July 2015 to 4th August 2015. Reserved a table at the Maritana for my wife and son. Listen to what the staff recommend. We had Grouper - it was astounding. Well worth a visit.

Great hotel restaurant on the beach. Good food, average service. Not that busy, but the server was not very attentive. Forgot some items.

My husband and I came here for dinner, we were staying in the hotel. The staff was fantastic and the food was incredible. The oysters were very fresh. The chef even brought freshly hand grated horse radish to my husband. The wine selection is very extensive and has some great choices. It's also a very clean and uniquely designed restaurant.

While the staff continue to be be very friendly, on this visit the place seemed to be poorly managed. First, we waited quite awhile just to be seated. (We did have a reservation.) There was no host or hostess - whatever they are called - there to seat anyone. We waited awhile, along with another party, for someone to show... More

Special occasion restaurant we went for our anniversary, thought it was overpriced but it is the famous Don Ce Sar. People were underdressed for the atmosphere.
