Description: 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!

Our family of four enjoyed the best meal of our vacation here. We sampled 3 different tapas and then shared 3 entrees. Each dish was authentic, fresh and incredible. We agreed that this was possibly the best meal that we have ever had and we are all foodies. Service is slow, just like in Spain. Our reservation was at 7:00. We were seated at 7:15 and our server didn’t come over until 7:30. Someone did bring water and bread five minutes after we were seated. The slow start was quickly forgotten when the wonderful food started to arrive. Don’t miss this!

Had a delicious lunch here and were impressed with the menu choices, service and the fact that being on the main drag & most tourists won’t walk here, it wasn’t crowded. Margaritas were top notch!

Espana is a hidden gem in Fernandina Beach. Tucked away, lots of atmosphere, fabulous, never fail food. Make a reservation because it is super popular.

Wow!!!! I can not say enough about this restaurant. Firstly, it takes reservations, secondly, the food was amazing! We had four tapas and a salad, and everything was deelish!!! And thirdly, the service was wonderful. Our water glasses were never more than half empty, and the staff made a group effort to serve us. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
