Went to Santiago's Bodega prior to a performance at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre (Bakersfield Mist - excellent).
Was a bit confused at the name of the place, figuring Mexican food, but it was suggested by friends after they had a very good experience there before. They were right!
This is a tapas style restaurant so you just order a variety and share. No sharing of the Port Wine Sangria though... it was all MINE! Very delicious to experience a new angle on this old-style beverage.
Lamb Gyros blew us away, nestled in a yummy, soft and tender wrap. Meatballs with a fabulous red sauce which was neither Italian nor Mexican, but a twist of each, served with cappellini. Every single item was astounding, fresh and scrumptious. And then the BREAD PUDDING...wow. Could have stayed for hours and kept ordering more, but alas, the theatre summoned.
Would highly recommend this excellent restaurant. There is a large bar area plus a dining area and outside seating (now that Florida is getting cooler....). Go and enjoy!
