I visited with friends and ordered Tapas. Great selection of creative dishes, borrowing from more than one European country. Everything was tasty, especially the mushrooms, the goat cheese, and the arancini. There are many vegetarian options, and the server was attentive and helpful.

I'm not sure how a restaurant like Radio Maria would have been accepted in the Champaign-Urbana community I knew as a college student in the late 1950s and early 1960s. We were into burgers and shakes and fries, not tapas and paella and all things...More

The chef here takes ordinary dishes and transforms them into dishes that you will not eat elsewhere. Everything I have had here has been delicious. This is a place for your foodie friends. It has a strong European flavor.

We had family visiting from Texas and they asked about eating here. I explained IMHO the place lacks consistency. Dinner last night was a perfect example. We ordered three appetizers: Risotto Cakes (more like a ball), Brussel Sprouts and Hummus. The Brussels Sprouts were excellent....More

If you are looking for something different with a Cuban and Spanish flare, this place is for you. Tapas menu changes. Servings are on the smaller side. I enjoyed the tuna with an avocado and cucumber salad. This is available in appetizer and dinner sizes....More

We booked back in February to make sure we got a table at Radio Maria for graduation lunch, and I'm so glad we did. We clearly aren't the only ones who have a deep appreciation for Radio Maria. We've been here several times before and...More
