The Spanish River Grill is a gem hidden away in the corner of the beach-side Publix shopping center. This upscale cuisine is both creative, delicious and reasonable. Spanish River Grill has the kind of menu, quality of service, and creativity of dishes that one would expect to find in true foodie" cities in larger metro areas. While there are a handful of unique and good restaurants in New Smyrna that stand out, Spanish River Grill is the sole upscale restaurant without peers.
Chef Henry Salgado is genuinely creative, clever, and precise. The kitchen here is consistent, and uses high quality and fresh ingredients, and provides a spectacular gastronomic experience. Their fish tacos are among the best you will experience anywhere, and the Roasted Sour Orange Free Range Chicken is an artistic and labor-intensive creation that is simply spectacular. Not to be missed - the "Jelly Donut" is not a dessert, but rather a very unique presentation of conch fritters with a sweet and spicy taste that is delicious. I could give more praise for the excellent service, and overall dining experience, but will simply say - if you seek the best food experience of a 5-star restaurant in New Smyrna, in which you are still welcomed in shorts and sandals, you should experience The Spanish River Grill.
