About This Location

“The highlight of my recent visits was the snapper Alicante. The fish, a firm and fresh-tasting fillet baked in a casserole, was surrounded by a bounty of oddly chosen ingredients that somehow all worked together.  Sweet Spanish onions, green peppers and almonds decorated the snapper, which was set on a mound of broth-infused yellow rice and garnished with fresh eggplant and shrimp wrapped in bacon and deep-fried. Chances were good that there would be something on the plate to like, and I liked it all.” – Orlando Sentinel

"Ole!: You'll feel like you're in Sevilla at the Columbia Restaurant, a short walk from the Celebration hotel, which has authentic Cuban and Spanish dishes including tapas (appetizers). It is the sister restaurant to the famous Columbia in Ybor City." – Palm Beach Post

Opened in 1997 and just minutes from Disney's theme parks, the Columbia in Celebration sits in a planned community with small-town charm and that offers a variety of designer boutiques and shops.

Overlooking Celebration's picturesque lake, the Columbia in Celebration offers classic elegance in a Mediterranean style setting where diners can enjoy award-winning Spanish-Cuban cuisine in our old-world-style dining rooms, an outdoor café or courtyard or our Tapas Bar.

All of your favorite foods that you may have sampled at the original Columbia Restaurant in Tampa's Historic Ybor City are here, including our world-famous "1905" Salad®. You'll also find century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Snapper "Alicante," Pompano en Papillot and Filet Mignon "Columbia."
