A good choice for dinner. The sangria is excellent. We split the seafood paella, and split an appetizer and I had a salad. Perfect amount of food. Try to sit outside if possible. Nice ambience. Excellent.

This is definitely more of an upscale, fine dining experience, but worth the price. We had the seafood paella, and it was fantastic!

My wife and I enjoyed an evening of tapas. Drunken clams, escargot brandy & creamy tomato sauce, chorizo & onions flambé with brandy, then portobello with manchego cheese & Serrano ham. Wow, every item was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The traditional flavors of Spain and Portugal are highlighted in all our dishes here in the heart of historic Fernandina Beach. Sip on homemade Sangria or enjoy a glass of wine from a list of hand picked selections (International and Californian). Choose from a menu of hot and cold tapas, "just caught" fish or meat entrees including the national dish of Spain, Paella. You can choose to dine in our cozy main dining room, bright enclosed patio dining room or lush garden dining area which is open generally Thursday - Sunday and weather permitting :) Chef Roberto is a second generation restaurateur, with over 28 years experience. He endeavors to make your evening a memorable one by bringing both his own family recipes, and inspiration from trips to Spain and Portugal for you to savor and enjoy. Family owned and operated since 2004. The Original on Amelia Island!
