Family-owned and operated for more than 116 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men in the dining room.

Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella a la Valenciana, Roast Pork a la Cubana and fresh seafood specialties.

Don't miss the Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad®, prepared with our delicious, freshly made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil.

Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo.

Relax outdoors in our café or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms.

We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365 days a year, including all holidays.

    We have just had one of the nicest experiences at a restaurant, The food was amazing and our server Alma was incredible. The cuban sandwich and bread pudding are not to be missed! The atmosphere is so calm and relaxing which is more amazing considering how busy they are. Watching Alma make the 1905 salad was great. Thank you for making our first trip to celebration so memorable

    Took a first time Florida visitor to the celebration location. I wanted him to have a truly authentic “real Florida“ experience. He described the pompano in parchment paper like eating ice cream! It was that delicious… He told me it was one of the best restaurant meals he has ever had. And, this is from a person who has worked on extended engagements in Saint Tropez, France, among many other well-known foodie locations.  In my decades, long experience, regardless of the location, the Colombia never disappoints!

    We had been here about 6 or 7 years ago and wanted to return since we enjoyed the restaurant so much. The food, waitstaff and value were all great! It was a touch noisy due to a very large party of maybe 40 beside us. Otherwise it was a fine experience. Leesa was our waitress and she was outstanding!

    Columbia Restaurant is our favorite when we’re in the Celebration area. We really enjoyed the 1905 salad and trio of tapas. Excellent preparation of the scallops, shrimp and chorizo. Left room for us to share a slice of Key Lime Pie!

    Food as always great. We were disappointed as the paella was going to take over an hour. As we came a half hour early to have a drink, had we been told. We would have ordered it. Also, service was spotty I assume because of Mother’s Day.

    Taking into account that it was Mother’s Day, I was surprised to actually be seated early. We ordered salads and entrées. The entrées came first followed quickly by the salad. One of the meals was incorrect, and the correct meal was brought out soon after. Not sure why the salads and meals were served almost together. The waitress was not very pleasant and did not seem to want to be there. When I asked why, she just said she thought we might want them together. This is not something I requested. A discussion with the manager was also not too helpful. He was willing to take the meals to the back and reserve our food after we completed our salads, but this seemed like rather a waste. After we were handed a full bill, they brought us a flan, with the waitress saying sorry for the salad. Given the price of the meal, I won’t be back anytime soon.
