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.

    Not as great as usual but it was president’s day and extra busy. Service was a little shaky but again it was sincerely busy so it was easy to get lost in the shuffle (everyone makes mistakes at some point). Overall still a very enjoyable experience.

    Wonderful restaurant! Impeccable service, excellent Cuban style menu offerings, lovely atmosphere!! Only issue was allowing people to bring their dogs into the dining room on the porch.. we were sitting next to a couple with a choking, aggressive bulldog… the dog was barking/growling at passing waiters and patrons… only suggestion would be to seat diners with animals in one location on the porch.

    Birthday visit for 4. Ricky G was our waiter and he is fabulous - so personable, efficient, funny - lots of suggestions and explanations. He is a star!!! We sat outdoors, had salad and sangria mixed tableside. Both excellent as always. Hot bread and butter are delicious. Our entrees, including sirloin tips, mahi mahi, and the sampler of beef and pork were all outstanding. The new chocolate dessert is amazing. Service was en point. Thank you for a fabulous time and complimentary birthday flan. Columbia, you are a class act. And please compliment Ricky G on being a wonderful server.
