The experience makes you feel that you are visiting Spain. The hospitality, service, and quality are second to none. We have dined here on two occasions and both exceeded expectations. Don Quijote is truly a hidden gem.

We stepped in the front door and felt like we were visiting home! A warm friendly greeting and very attentive, but not intrusive service was just the beginning! The food is spectacular. The quality and authentic Spanish cuisine is outstanding. The owners are native Spaniards...More

First time. Loved the dining experience. It is beautifully decorated and the live music made it extra special! We had the bison steak and ostrich steak. So unique but delish. The desserts are out of this world! Must try the flan! We will be back!

My wife and I were visiting the area and noticed the Toll Road billboard advertising ‘don Quijote’. Since tapas isn’t available near our home, we figured we’d give it a try. Great decision! We had a very good mushroom appetizer. I followed with the ‘combination...More

Don Quijote Restaurant, the heart of Spain in the heart of Valparaiso. We have been ahead of the "Tapas" trend for the last 26 years!! Serving Spanish cuisine since 1985 and featuring over two dozen different tapas, including, Octopus, Galician style meat pastries and the traditional "Tortilla Espanola", Spanish potato omelet. Our menu doesn"t stop there,but goes on to feature an array of tantalizing entrees, from fresh seafood, like Swordfish and Salmon to succulent Castilian style roast Lamb. The food is sure to please and fortify any traveler who might be roming the countryside. The National dish of Spain is the Paella, and we offer four different versions: Marinera, Vegetarian, Black and Valenciana. Delicious Homemade desserts round out our extensive menu. Our decor, complete with street lamps an a fountain, will transport you, to any out door cafe in Spain. "INDIANA'S ONLY SPANISH RESTAURANT"
