The oldest restaurant in Florida. Mostly food with a Spanish flare (not Mexican food). Very good, but be prepared to pay, meals in the $20 - $30 range per person.
I had eaten here twice last year and had my fingers crossed that I could take 2 friends this trip. Food and service is excellent even for a vegetarian like me. Michael, the waiter from last year, remembered where we sat previously. Worth the 20 minute taxi ride from Tampa International Airport.
If you know Cuban food well then this can only disappoint. I've been there twice and both times I told myself not to return. This time the bread arrived dry and hard. The appetizer fried calamari was good, but I've never had it disappoint. The arroz con pollo arrived aesthetically appealing. One bite of the chicken and I could tell... 更多

Everything about The Columbia Restaurant was perfect! We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary here and were greatly pleased with our choice! The food was wonderful, I ordered Camarones Rellenos and it was absolutely delicious! My husband had the Baked Stuffed Grouper and loved it! We also enjoyed a pitcher of Sangria de Cava! The flamenco dancers were very entertaining, make... 更多
This is the oldest restaurant in Florida! We have been here twice and enjoyed it very much each time! The building is super neat and historic. The restaurant takes up a full city block and they have two large parking lots nearby. The staff is huge and very attentive and friendly. We had reservations for lunch at 1pm on a... 更多
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner and entertainment during our vacation in Tampa. The food was great, especially the seafood, very nice waiter, free parking, decent wine list and a 10 for unique atmosphere. The dance show just made it all that more special.
Outstanding experience. One of the best Arroz con Pollo (Chicken and Rice) dishes that I have ever eaten. The portions were very generous, I had to take a doggy bag home. The bread before dinner is an experience in itself. The before dinner salad was another treat. Cannot visit Tampa without dining at the Columbia Restaurant.
This is the second Columbia Restaurant we've eaten at and I can say it was not a disappointment. Great atmosphere and fantastic Sangria, and delicious food. I plan to come back here whenever I'm in the Tampa area.
The Cuban sandwich was excellent and our server, Susan, was amazing. We will definitely return to one of their locations, but it will not be as wonderful as the original location.
The Columbia is our favorite restaurant! We love how they prepare the incredible 1905 salad and sangria in front of you.....interesting! Great all-around experience :)
This is the first time my husband and I visited this Colombia Restaurant. We've been to several of the other Colombia Restaurants and love them so thought we would try the original since our travels took us nearby. The food was great and very consistent with the other restaurants. Love their Sangria!
I had the Mahi Mahi Cayo Hueso (Key West), and it was great. Every meal is served with fresh bread. From the Tapas to the dessert; ever thing is a flavor of Spain. Very enjoyable and fine wine to boot.
We made reservations for The Columbia which is recommended because this restaurant is a gem! Since we arrived early we waited (not long) in the bar for our table to be prepped. I sampled the Tango Mango Daiquiri. WOW, this was a must try. In fact, everyone at my table tried my Daiquiri. Our waiter was prompt, pleasant, and very... 更多
