Dining in Tampa

Dining options in Tampa are limitless. Whether you prefer a casual seafood cafe overlooking the bay or are craving upscale Italian served by bow tied waiters, this Florida city has a dining destination that’s right for you.

In the Ybor City area, check out the delicious Latin American flavors and fresh seafood. For instance, the Columbia Restaurant is one of the oldest Spanish restaurants in the country, and has been named one of the top 25 restaurants in all of Florida.

The hip Hyde Park area of Tampa has a number of delectable choices. From the fairly extravagant Restaurant BT, which serves French cuisine inspired by an Asian influence, to the low-key Four Green Fields Irish pub, serving Gaelic stew and other pub favorites.

SOHO, another popular Tampa neighborhood, is home to Bella’s Italian Cafe, a great place to find a homemade pizza; T.C. Choy’s, a well-known sushi joint; and many other wonderful eateries.

If you find yourself hungry in South Tampa, your best choices include the Colonnade, a seafood restaurant consistently named one of the best in the area, and Six Tables Tampa, which is slightly more luxurious and extremely scrumptious. If you’re in the mood for barbecue head to Kojak’s House of Ribs, a favorite with locals and tourists alike.

In West Tampa, Donatello’s and Miguel’s are the top choices. Donatello’s serves traditional Italian food with undeniable flair, while Miguel’s is a colorful Mexican restaurant featuring Latin food with a unique, Floridian twist.

Other top dining experiences in Tampa include Catch Twenty Three, a seafood restaurant with a Caribbean twist found in the Westchase neighborhood, and Bern’s Steak House, one of Tampa’s best-known restaurants and home to some undeniably mouthwatering cuts of meat.
