This might be one of the best treasures on Amelia Island. My wife didn't wanna go here and now it's one of her favorite places. Why did we wait so long to try it?

Great food, great sangria and great service at this hidden gem in historic fernandina beach. We had the paella rustica (all meats) and several tapas split between three of us. The ceviche was some of the best I've ever had. I definitely recommend reservations

My choice for my birthday dinner. Stayed in Fernandino Beach just to have dinner there. I love the paella. Service was impecable as always, but the food is what we come for. If you are in the area, don't miss a chance to eat here.

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!
