The tapas are delicious and the homemade sangria is the best. Be sure to follow up with the flourless chocolate cake.

We had 4 Tapas and they were terrific! The Spicy Shrimp were cooked perfectly and the sauce was perfectly spiced. The pork with brown sauce was just as good, and the calamari and escargot were amazing. Our enthusiasm for the Tapas unfortunately prevented us from even ordering from the main course menu...next time. If you are a party of (2)... More

We made reservations on line and had the opportunity to get in right at 5pm Saturday. This is a very cozy restaurant (aka small). with decent ambiance. The food was awesome and the service was just as great. We ordered tapas, Paella and Scallops with green sauce. Price was reasonable

My only criticism was the American black olives used to garnish the fresh white anchovies. The grilled calamari was magnificent and the shrimp... More

The food was everything that you would expect. It was tasty portions were good the options although limited definitely expanded your pallet. We ate at 6:30 a little early but we had reservations I felt as if the server was a little over efficient in his clearing of plates and going from appetizers to entrées. I wanted to order the...

Service was great. Well priced wine list. Appetizers were also very good. My dinner was terrific. My wife's could have been hotter. In spite of that. All in all a great visit.

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.
