Description: Don Quijote Restaurant, the heart of Spain in the heart of Valparaiso. We have been ahead of the "Tapas" trend for the last 26 years!! Serving Spanish cuisine since 1985 and featuring over two dozen different tapas, including, Octopus, Galician style meat pastries and the traditional "Tortilla Espanola", Spanish potato omelet. Our menu doesn"t stop there,but goes on to feature an array of tantalizing entrees, from fresh seafood, like Swordfish and Salmon to succulent Castilian style roast Lamb. The food is sure to please and fortify any traveler who might be roming the countryside. The National dish of Spain is the Paella, and we offer four different versions: Marinera, Vegetarian, Black and Valenciana. Delicious Homemade desserts round out our extensive menu. Our decor, complete with street lamps an a fountain, will transport you, to any out door cafe in Spain. "INDIANA'S ONLY SPANISH RESTAURANT"

don Quijote is truly a unique dining experience. I have eaten there on several occasions and have never been disappointed! The owners, Carlos Rivero and Elena Jambrina, are from Spain and it is obvious that their passion is to share their native foods. Although all of their food is delicious, there are three MUST haves when we eat here....1. Sangria 2. their ali-oli. which is served with all meal....but beware, you will most certainly ask for more!!!! 3. Paella (the national dish of Spain made with saffron rice and variety of meat and seafood (this dish requires 30-45 minutes to prepare and is worth every minute).

There is usually folk song type live music playing and on certain occasions they even have belly dancers performing. Don't be surprised if you see Carlos strolling through the restaurant sharing his bota bag with his customers. In the summer, there is outside dining. While there, check out the "gift" store that offers foods and items imported from Spain.

don Quijote is Indiana's only authentic Spanish restaurant. I would highly recomment it to anyone who is in the area!

Delightful service along with charming atmosphere provides a festive dining experience like no other in Northwest Indiana. Authenic Spanish dishes are both tasty and reasonably priced. Friendly staff is very helpful in explaining the dishes and offering suggestions on dining selections.

2 hours flew by. Food, music and service were outstanding. Waitress knew her stuff and food was worth the wait. Go on Friday or Saturday when they have live guitar music. It was an enjoyable experience not just dinner.
