Description: 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!

We had 12 folks here and all the dishes were amazing. Generous portions and good service. You will love the food . This was in all ways a wonderful experience. The only reason I did not give this restaurant a 5 star rating is that although comfortable this is not 5 star context and furnishings.
Building and dining room needs updating.

The food was amazing, the sangria was top notch, and the service was wonderful. I recommend this restaurant to everyone that visits Fernandina Beach! (Get the lemon chicken and the blue cheese steak - to die for!)

From the outside I didn't have high expectations but it turned out to be very good & we enjoyed an excellent dinner with a good selection of tapas & tasty dishes ... The service 2 was attentive ... altogether a positive experience

Luck was on our side. We could only get a reservation for outdoor seating not under cover and with the unpredictable Florida summer weather, this could have been unpleasant. Fortunately, we had the most magnificent meal in a beautiful garden setting on a very pleasant evening. With our group of four we shared a number of dishes including the seaffod paella, one of their three types of paella that seem to be the specialty of the menu. We also split an eggplant tapas, Gorgonzola salads, and some unbelievable desserts, one a chocolate cake and the flan. It seemed a little bit noisy inside, so the best tip I can give is to eat outside in the garden if the weather is going to cooperate.
