Our friends who are Hispanic & live in the area took us here for seafood paella which was excellent. Interesting appetizers. We tried octopus, stuffed peppers, stuffed dates & grouper bites. Washed it all down with a good malbec. Romantic atmosphere. Great for couples. Excellent service.

My wife and I visited Vizcaya on May 19th for dinner and conversation. We were seated immediately by the friendly guy that works the bar. By the way, he is an outstanding wine connoisseur. If you are not sure what you are in the mood for, he will always point you to something delicious. I recommend the seafood paella for its wonderful mix of seasonings and flavors. This is a huge portion that can feed two easily. Every dish here is excellent. Felix is a master chef and truly knows his craft. This is one of our favorite places to eat in Tampa. They also have excellent entertainment Wed. - Sat. Enjoy!

We used to live in the Tampa area and would visit often. We are now in the North Orlando area and a visit here was a big part of our vacation planning when we were heading to Gulfport. We had our 2 pups so we sat on the patio. We arrived a little before opening so it took a little while to get bread & dip and drinks but well worth the wait for the fresh bread. We ordered our favorite 4 tapas and they were even better than what we remembered. We had the octopus with potatoes, veal stuffed peppers, avocado shrimp and mushroom sweetbreads. Service was friendly and attentive as well. The restaurant inside was gorgeous but the patio needs some improvement. It is shaded by trees & an awning but the chairs need seat cushions and the tables need covers. We will definitely be back again when we are even slightly close!

Not sure how people get to rate this "terrible" and "poor" as we very much enjoyed our experience. We loved pretty much every item we ordered, some more than others, but didn't dislike anything. Also the service, even as it was slow in the beginning became very enjoyable at the end. We did sit outside and with the place busy inside that may have explained the slow service in the beginning. But we thought the opportunity to sit outside was too much to pass on. Only thing you do need to keep in mind ... the place isn't exactly cheap, but the food is worthwhile it.
