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 but considering the island seemed quiet we didn’t think we needed one. We were told there they could get us seating at the bar, we could get seating at a table but would have to be rushed and be out by 7:00 pm. Although half the dining room was empty. Never heard of such a thing at a restaurant before. We took the seating at the bar. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the shrimp curry was to die for. We were done by 7:30pm. The whole restaurant was empty. At no point was this restaurant full to capacity. Why we were told we had to rush and be out by 7, I have no idea. Other than that food was good and atmosphere was great.

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.
