Columbia Restaurant

Description

Set in Tampa’s historic Ybor City Latin district, this Spanish and Cuban restaurant opened in 1905, making it one of Florida’s oldest eateries. With more than a dozen dining rooms, including a café and courtyard space, it’s also one of largest. The staff—many of them fourth- and fifth-generation members of the Cuban founder’s family—serves up history along with the delicious Spanish bean soups, paella, Cuban sandwiches, and roast-pork dishes. Sangria, cerveza, or any of several “family wines” will complement your meal. Try to time dinner with a flamenco show, held twice nightly Monday through Saturday (reservations required). The gift shop is a great place to find gourmet souvenirs.
