Despite being the oldest restaurant in Florida, Columbia Restaurant is still one of the best. Having started out as a sandwich shop in 1905, the Spanish eatery is best known for its delicious Cuban cuisine, exotic drinks menu, and lively entertainment. Tuck into The Original Cuban Sandwich, which uses the same recipe as the original sandwich sold in-store in 1915. Opt for something fresh and light with the award-winning Original “1905” Salad®, tossed and served at your table. With more than 30 other dishes to choose from, plus plenty of smaller Tapas plates, you may need to put a little more time aside to browse the menu!
It’s during the evenings that Columbia Restaurant really comes alive. There’s a captivating Flamenco show every night and live jazz in the Columbia Café dining room most evenings too. On weekends, you can join the Cuban-inspired party with live music inside the Tapas Bar and out on the waterfront patio bar. With so much to see and so much history to admire, the experience here is just as much about seeing as it is eating.
