“Super Mega Overpriced Food for pretentious people”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

While the Jelly Donuts are a must, As a tourist I did not like this place at all. I am assuming only rick, pretentious people go here. The Jelly donuts which an appetizer were 15 dollars. If you go here be prepared to dress nice and deal with a bunch of people trying to be pretentious

The food was nothing to be worth paying a 140 dollar bill between two people. At All. 2 drinks and appetizer and two fried snappers. We ordered a Red Snapper at MP (otr fault for not asking how much it was) they told us they were out and they would bring us a Yellow Snapper, then they said they were out and brough us a HOG Snapper which was very small. They still charged us "market Price" Ridiculous.

While they are creative and try to be creative with their prices...I went to two other sea food places out there, and there was far better tasty food (Including a seafood bar/Grill) and Oceans Seafood Beachside.

Unless you are prepared to spend a lot of money on overpriced food that is overrated go here. The ambience is nice, but the restaurant is crowded and way small and loud so if youre trying for a quiet date, forget it.

“A Birthday Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Using a coupon received on my recent birthday, the Spanish River Grill (SRG) was one of our first stops during this year's vacation in New Smyrna Beach. One of our favorite restaurants, and this visit did nothing to change that opinion. Terrific food and service. The Paella was great!

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was really good, the service prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere was really nice. Probably one of my most memorable meals in New Smyrna Beach.

“What a waste!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We went as a family to eat at this restaurant hoping to have some authentic Cuban food, but it was a disappointment . Too expensive, no flavor, and it took too long for the food to arrive. The waitress was impatient and did not serve more water . The sodas tasted horrible and the chairs were uncomfortable . I will never eat there again. Definitely not worth the money.
