Description: Family-owned and operated for more than 112 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Filet Mignon "Columbia," and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil. Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. Relax outdoors in our cafe or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays.

We ate outside on a Saturday night and although it wasn't busy, the service was incredibly slow. Our waiter was nice, but not up to par with previous visits, and we know he has been here quite some time. The food, of course, was delish (except for grandson's cold mac n cheese)! We highly recommend their specialty salad prepared at the table and the best all around is the Marilyn Monroe dish...superb!

If you want to eat in an authentic Cuban restaurant in a beautiful location, then this place is highly recommended. The food is different and delicious. And the mojitos are pretty good too. Everything we had was good and very tasty. The service was superb and the restaurant itself is beautiful in the delightful setting of Celebration. Come out of DIsney and eat somewhere different!

I took my wife and family tonight on the last night of our vacation. The place looks great and describes itself as a family restaurant. The service was very slow so it spoiled the whole experience a little bit. I had thought it was a one off (it's Monday after the busy Fourth of July holiday so all the chefs have the night off) but I have noticed a few other similar comments.

My family lives in Celebration and I make it a point to come to this restaurant each trip home.

The 1905 salad is the best thing on the menu in my opinion (and why people come back all the time).

The cuban sandwich I tried this time was pretty good, but the salad is the staple for me.

Their Sangria is also very god here!
