The oldest and largest restaurant in the state, the Ybor City original of this Cuban-Spanish mini-chain offers "the best experience, combining incredible food with turn-of-the-20th-century architecture and furnishings"; but all locations are "consistent" in terms of the "classic" dishes (in particular, "the paella is to die for" and "the 1905 salad knocks it out of the park"), "fantastic sangria", "stellar service" and "reasonable" prices; P.S. the flamenco dancers at the flagship are "amazing", and the Tampa cafe serves a limited menu; the St. Petersburg location is closing in 2013.
