It's not nearly on a par with the Columbia in Ybor City, but this Spanish-themed restaurant is among the best within a short drive of Busch Gardens. High-back chairs, dark-wood floors, and Spanish posters and paintings set an appropriate scene for the house specialties of traditional paella (allow 30 min. for preparation) and Valencia-style rice dishes. Don José also offers non-Spanish fare such as red snapper baked in parchment.
