From the outside it is not as fancy or modern looking as other restaurants in the area, but it's about the food. We happen to see another couple that we met at the bed & breakfast and ate with them because it was pretty busy. We got the Chirozo appetizer and Paella Valencia, both were great. Would definitely go there... More

The ambiance, in my opinion, is better than the food. It's downtown in a very good location and is quieter than lots of your other choices.

We love this place have come here for years as a couple and as a family. Tonight, as always, the service was great, the sangria was wonderful, the salad with fried goat cheese was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. However, the paella seems to have lost its kick. The Rustica seemed to have had a lot less meat... More

A huge portion of seafood delight. Mussels , shrimp , scallops , a rich boulibase broth , warm crusty bread , in a romantic atmosphere. The Tirimisu was light and decadent. Service was excellent. The courtyard was closed but we will go back just to sample other entrée's and sit outside....

My husband and I went to this Spanish restaurant for our anniversary that was recommended by B&B we stayed at. Small, cozy atmosphere. Shared an appetizer and ordered paella. Was not disappointed. Good service too. Make sure you make reservations.

I rarely give a review but felt compelled to give this restaurant a excellent review. The service was exceptional and the food better. Plenty of restaurants are great but few are also reasonable. This is a must if you're in the area.

Great food and service. If you like seafood fine dining this is the place. Fishermans Stew is outstanding. Scott (Clint Eastwood lookalike) provided great table service and food recomendations. Thanks for an enjoyable evening!

The traditional flavors of Spain and Portugal are highlighted in all our dishes here in the heart of historic Fernandina Beach. Sip on homemade Sangria or enjoy a glass of wine from a list of hand picked selections (International and Californian). Choose from a menu of hot and cold tapas, "just caught" fish or meat entrees including the national dish of Spain, Paella. You can choose to dine in our cozy main dining room, bright enclosed patio dining room or lush garden dining area which is open generally Thursday - Sunday and weather permitting :) Chef Roberto is a second generation restaurateur, with over 28 years experience. He endeavors to make your evening a memorable one by bringing both his own family recipes, and inspiration from trips to Spain and Portugal for you to savor and enjoy. Family owned and operated since 2004. The Original on Amelia Island!
