We did not stay at the Floridan, but we did enjoy Sunday lunch there last Sunday. The hotel is an old Tampa landmark. It fell into disrepair and was abandoned for years. A seven year restoration project made the Floridan Palace beautiful again. Entering through the lobby, you see that the chandeliers and ceiling are beautifully restored. While the restaurant is small, the food is delicious and the service is very good. I had the calamari, brown, crunchy, and delicious. Complemented by great bread and other dishes, we had a great meal. I would have lunch at the Floridan Palace again. SInce I have family in Tampa, a stay there is unlikely.
