We went here for Valentine's Day, and they knocked it out of the park! Wonderful service, food and ambience. They jumped to the top of my go to restaurant in Valpo!

Fantastic place, we go there every Valentine’s Day, gets better every year. For those who have never been, you’re missing out, won’t be disappointed.
Excellent food and service as always! Can't wait til our next visit!
This was on my recommended list of restaurants and after going here, I see why. The food was delicious and our server made great suggestions and was very attentive. It is definitely more of a special occasion place though, as the prices are on the higher end. The quality equals the cost though.
Me and my fiance wanted to try a new restaurant. We're very impressed with the service. The owner's wife and everybody working there were very friendly and felt like a family-orientated environment. Food was very delicious and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu.
I decided to bring my wife for her birthday. I introduced her to Tapas and Spanish cuisine in general on our first date some years back. This was in a well known Tapas restaurant in the city of Chicago. We have since relocated to the rural south closer to Indiana and after a quick search found Don Quijote in Valpo. Decided to give it a try and I'm (we are) glad I did. It was still an hour drive from my home but it was well worth it. I would much rather drive here than the original spot we frequented for tapas. Everything just seemed more authentic and welcoming. Great place. I cannot wait to go again. I will also say our server Jessie was great, she made us laugh and gave us great recommendations.
Fabulous food and service like always. The owners always go out of the way to accomodate anything. Very fresh delicious food.
Carlos' food and Elena's desserts are always great. The sangria is second to none. The dining experience is very European, very relaxed
Excellent meal with our family, including young children. Carlos and Elena made us feel special and gave our family an unforgettable evening. Food was fabulous and they knew just what to bring us to eat--including some additional items we didn't order but they thought would be good for the little one. Delicious!
Great food and service, love the live music. Very personable staff.
Loved our Dineing experience. Would highly recommend your Resteraunt to friends and family. Terrific food and Great atmosphere. Loved meeting the Chef. We will definitely be back again Thank you so much for makeing our dinner experience so great. Kim Hutchison.
The chef came out from the kitchen to talk with us, he chatted with me about how I wanted my main dish prepared. Hard to imagine a restaurant where you would get better service, I'd give it 6 stars in that category if I could.
Great food and great service. I love that Carlos comes to everyone's table. He makes sure his customers are happy. Very professional wait staff.
Unbelievable dining experience...again and again....drove from South Bend...every time the experience is worth the drive...we are in love with this place, the food, the service, the romantic European atmosphere and the warm reception from the folks who own and run this fine restaurant...it feels like coming home.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful date on Friday night without the kids. We used to frequent Don Quijote annually for my late father's birthday. He absolutely loved the place and would have conversations with Don Carlos in spanish, as my father was from Puerto Rico. It was hard to go back but I missed the ambiance, hospitality and authentic food, so my wife and I made it a wonderful date evening. Thank you very much.
Carlos and Elena continue to serve up authentic Spanish cuisine in a delightful atmosphere while also being very philanthropic in our community. We love the Sangria, the tapas, the staff and kindness of our hosts.
Don Quijote never disappoints! Authentic Spanish food and very pleasant waiters and owners! We went for their Tuesday 1/2 price tapas and sangria. Everything was wonderful and delicious. A complimentary dessert and a glass of port concluded our meal. Will be back often!
One of the best dining experiences I've had in Indiana. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a jokingly fresh friendliness. Owners Carlos and Helena were fantastic. This is one of our first times eating Spanish cuisine, and it was worth the hour and a half we drove to get here. Our server explained menu items with exquisite detail. All of the food that was ordered was absolutely delicious. At the end of our meal Mrs. Helena was kind enough to light my Grandmothers candles and join in the Happy birthday song. Everyone in our party was pleased!, which is a rare occurrence. I enjoyed the food but I would definitely come back for the people. Make reservations prior because it seems to get busy on weekends. To quote the owner "if you don't have a reservation you will have to eat outside." This is a Hidden GEM in north west Indiana.
It was my son's 30th Birthday and everyone made it a very special evening. The service was amazing as well as the food! Perfect celebration!!!
