I have eaten two dinners at El Quijote since its recent opening and have been very impressed with the quality of the kitchen on both occasions. The food is authentic Spanish and the tapas are not to be missed - fresh ingredients, delicious taste combinations, and a variety that suits every taste. We loved the seafood-based tapas, but the beef carpaccio on a slice of toast (a "montadito") was equally good. The vegetable-themed dishes were also excellent and the desserts reminded us of what we had been eating in Spain the previous week. El Quijote is a very welcome addition to the restaurant offerings in Rappahannock County and deserves the support of local residents as well as the admiration of urban visitors.
