Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 110-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 in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a real "spanish flavor" restaurant with great atmosphere. Service is excellent. Delicious food, plenty of choices, and large portions. Very popular so recommend reservations. "1905" salad is a must!

“Don't miss this restaurant !!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

The 1905 salad alone makes this restaurant worth the visit!! Be sure to order the sangria, a house specialty. Both salad and sangria are prepared at your table, making your experience even more personal and interesting. The food deserves five stars, as well as the service and atmosphere. Reservations are recommended.

“Nice atmosphere with fair fare”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Colombia Restaurant has a very nice Colombian atmosphere with beautiful pottery and artwork to provide the setting. Nice wine selection and good service. Our hopes for the paella were high; however, it did not have the flavor we had hoped for. The fish entree we ordered was overcooked. Nice wine selection and good service. We will try another night for better luck with our choices.
