I go there every Saturday, food is excellent and they customize per your specifications to the letter. Wine is excellent and the people are very friendly.

i f#%king love this place, not only is the winelist affordable, it's dish sizes are huge, and deliscious. I would not be going out on a limb to say, that of all the Tapas bars i have visited in all Orlando, it is by far the most excellent! The chef, comes out, of the kitchen, and speaks with the patrons about their sdishes, and the servers are quite professional. Lunch there is great, i think it is the only restaraunt i can have a cup of caldo gallego soup, and a large grilled chicken salad, and deliscious calamari for under 17 bucks... screw all those other nonauthentic chefs, Chef Paco kick ass...

I went there with my husband 2 weekends ago and I was disappointed. The food was too salty. What's wrong with the chefs?? Too much salt = less customers. Let me put the salt on my food, don't force me to have it.
I love the food from Spain (been in Spain several times), there has to be something better around!!
If el Bodegon reads this, yes, I'm the one who was complaining about the salt and wanted to talk to the manager. Nice place, so so food.

It's always hard to get that "authentic" flavor when you're not actually in Spain...
Have any of you tried getting Spanish food online? I found this really interesting website called www.tapasanmore.com
I think it's even in Central Florida...

Not bad, the service was pretty good, but I go out to restaurants for the food, and I hate going to a restaurant again, ordering the same thing because I liked it the 1st time and getting it different (both looks and and taste) that second time. Consistency is a huge factor, and they need to realize that!!
I doubt I'll be back...

For authentic chinese visit the one in Condado with parking side by side and Ajilimoli. Criteria and budget depends on sophistication and traveling experiences. In Spain, El Bulli, the only 5 stars in the holewildworld.

Ofcourse, Che's is Argentian and the Owner is Julio Aleman whom I personally know for over 25 years.....

La Parrillada is legendary for a mixture of all kinds of cuts of meats including sausages, churrasco, tira, lomillo & costillas....

Arroz con habichuelas rinones is excellent or ensalada rusa...excellent service and ample parking...
