This restaurant opened in 1905 is so beautiful, I took a long time outside while waiting for a seat! There are new couples specially chosen to get married here~
The restaurant is often full, it would be better to make a reservation in advance, otherwise the wait will be a long time.
As far as food is concerned, seafood is very fresh. Of course, you should choose the most distinctive sangria!
Tampa, USA | One of my favorite things in my private collection of 100-year-old restaurants is to find the most distinctive local restaurant. Attracted by the name of Ybor City "Little Cuba" and the clearwater beach, the most beautiful white beach in the United States, I decided to visit this city called Tampa. Tampa (Tampa) is a seaport city on the west coast of Florida, United States, connected to the Gulf of Mexico. It is about 2 hours' drive from Orlando and 4 hours from Miami. It is not the peak summer season, it is a good time to hang out. Ybor City used to be a gathering place for cigar factories, now it is a commercial street with Cuban characteristics. And one of the most important reasons I went to Ybor City was for the most famous restaurant on this street: Columbia Restaurant. This old shop from 1905 is very popular no matter when you go, even if it is 1 o'clock noon in the off-season, many people queue up. Columbia Restaurant Location: 2117 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605 Time: Monday-Thursday 11:00-22:00 Friday-Saturday 11:00-23:00 Sunday 11:30-21:00 Free parking is available opposite the restaurant Key points: Don’t be attracted by the decorations outside the hotel. Be sure to get a number first, that is, go to the front desk to register your name and phone number. The restaurant will send you a text message when you are about to arrive. You can ask about the estimated waiting time. If it is long, you can use this time to visit Ybor City. Take pictures and walk back and forth for about 20-30 minutes. Netizens and Google introduced this restaurant as Spanish cuisine, which is not entirely correct. I think this is more like Latin American Spanish cuisine, that is, it has the "shape" of Spanish cuisine but is still Latin American inside. Because it’s close to the beach, the seafood dishes are very good! Recommend to try scallops and various marine fish. Drinks are of course the most distinctive Sangria!
