“Lunch in_dinner out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

This is my favorite place to have lunch in town, but the dinner menu is very similar and quite a bit more expensive.

“Somewhat European in nature.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We had lunch on the patio which provides a nice view of the park in Celebration. The menu is a combination Cuban/Spanish selection and the food is very well done. I had a Cuban sandwich which comes with plantain chips and a bowl of gazpacho. The sandwich was good but typical. The soup came as a cold cream base and the server then spooned green pepper, onion, tomato and cucumber with croutons as an added touch. It was very good. If you read the menu it looks like they only serve dinner portions but our server asked if we wanted lunch size portions. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food. We have also had dinner there and the inside is more elegant.
The server was helpful but the time between ordering and being served was pretty lengthy I think we waited 45 minutes for a sandwich and a salad for my wife. Perhaps thats the European touch where meals are supposed to take a bit of time but honestly I think they just got way behind. In any case, it was almost an hour and a half between start to finish. That may not be typical. I'll go back again.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This restaurant is in the nice town of Celebration. The food was superb. A lot of the food is made at the table, like their famous salad. The white sangria was the best 8 ever had. Our waitress was fantastic, and had a nice sense of humor. They have a little gift shop, too. I purchased their coffee and it was excellent.
