We went there this year for the Thanksgiving buffet. Clearly not an optimum day to rate a restaurant. We always wonder who got stuck working in the kitchen that day.

That being said, we had a very nice meal. There was a very extensive buffet, taking up essentially one wall of three rooms. Carving stations with turkey, ham, and roast beef, a selection of salads, many sides, a few appetizers (the sushi was more than forgettable), and a number of deserts. The food was all well prepared, though the portions that were carved out at the carving station were more than stingy. But you could go back.

The restaurant is very pretty. I imagine that it would be a nice place for date night, with their regular menu.

Stayed at the Renaissance Tampa International last weekend and decided to give Pelagia a try. Had the best calamari ever! Our waiter was very personable and attentive (wish I could remember his name) and the food was really good. Next time we stay at the Renaissance we'll definitely dine at Pelagia.

I have always had a great experience at this restaurant at the Tampa Renaissance Hotel at International Plaza. Beautiful roasted veggies, huge place of them for only $10.00 and lovely perfectly cooked fish. Homemade gelato was great for dessert and the wine by the glass selection was excellent. This restaurant accommodates gluten free diners, which is greatly appreciate by folks like me who have celiac disease and have to be on a gluten free diet. They were so polite and caring. Great service.

The standard buffet - I bit less than this venue deserves
