The Castro family emigrated from Spain and established the Spain Restaurant in Downtown Tampa in 1980. The food (Tapas & Entrees) offered here is a representation of the northwest region of Spain, known as Galicia. These traditional recipes have been passed from one generation to the next and are commonly served in Galician restaurants and Bars.
Enjoy Mediterranean atmosphere in Tampa's most unique, modern, urban setting complimented by excellent Spanish cuisine at affordable prices.
Just blocks around the corner from the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center and the Tampa Theater, the Spain Restaurant & Toma Bar is the perfect place to be before or after a show.
