About

Spanish Pavillion in Harrison is an eatery that is steeped in history, determination and good food. The grandparents of the owners opened Jersey’s very first Spanish restaurant in 1963. The grandchildren now operate the finest restaurant throughout all the Newark/Harrison area that serves Spanish cuisine to area residents. Spanish Pavillion boasts an array of gourmet dishes and plenty of both new and traditional old favorites each day.

Some recommended specialties include the traditional paellas, tapas, veal scaloppini, Pavillion Burger and Mediterranean chicken salad. A vegetarian burger featuring grilled portobello, piquillos, spinach and manchego cheese ensures that vegetarians can also have their fill of delicious Spanish cuisine.

First time dining here. It was a terrific meal from start to end. The food and service were fantastic. Meals are large enough for two (or more!). The fried calamari was so tender. Great sangria, too. The paella was worth the 1/2 hour wait, so order early.

My wife and I had another wonderful dinner at the Spanish Pavilion. The octopus a la plancha was its usual decilious dish, as was the Pavilion calamari, perfectly cooked with sweet peppers. We'll be back soon...especially since the owner repeatedly visits each table to make sure everything is satisfactory!!!

For a Tuesday evening it was reasonably busy the service was very good waiters were attentive.
My husband had calamari and salmon I had the steak which was cooked perfectly.
Having been there before the Gordon Ramsey do over and a few times after they have maintained the

We were a party of 8 people who went there before a game at Red Bull Stadium. Everyone really enjoyed their dinner and appetizers. Service was good and friendly and the price was very reasonable. We parked our car there and walked to the stadium and after dinner we stopped for a few beers at their outdoor beer garden.
