The only reason I didn’t give this place 5 stars is the host. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel the Ritz Carlton Amelia. Food was amazing, which probably made up for the questionable host. We arrived around 6:00 pm. We didn’t have a reservation...More

The paella was particularly delicious, especially the shrimp! Amazing flavor and piping hot throughout the meal. We also enjoyed the tapas. A great place for dinner!

Absolutely delicious! Enjoyed every bite & every sip! Mussels, clams, shrimp in garlic & salmon stuffed peppers were to die for. Wine was delish & not crazy overpriced as wine in a restaurant usually is.

We had awesome dinner here our first night on Amelia Island. My wife had the Red Snapper Special and I had the Seafood Paella, both were delicious. Sangria was also outstanding. The Service was perfect.

This restaurant was fabulous! We tried numerous tapas but my favorite was the Drunken Clams. Perfectly prepared and served hot in a delicious broth which was great for dunking bread 🥖! The service was also spectacular. Highly recommend this special spot.

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!
