This was the gathering spot for my family at least once a year since 1988. The food was good and the house sangria was excellent! I have lots of fond memories here as a child and adult. The location was perfect. Very sad to see...More

I never liked the place, too cold, too noisy, slow service if you weren't in a group, and much better seafood all over Tampa. Shut down and gone! Being turned into a high rise something. Was my mother's favorite restaurant, I feel sorry for her.
