Highly recommend! Went there not expecting much but was floored by the excellent service and great food. Tapas plates and paella were incredible. Very traditional Spanish cuisine so don't go there thinking it's some version of an Americanized one. Owner even came out to ask how are meals were. Even got a complimentary bottle of wine and shots of port because we were celebrating our anniversary! Will definitely go back!read more
The decor was fun. The octopus was absolutely spectacular although all if the tapas were good. The wine menu was extensive and described wine regions in Spain to assist in your selection. I loved my meal, I'll be back.
The atmosphere was fantastic. They had live music that very much added to the entire experience. We had never been to a Spanish restaurant before but it was everything I would have expected. The food was very good and the waitress was really kind. I noticed a lot of teamwork amongst the staff, which was a definite plus. We will come again when we are in town.read more
This is a spectacular restaurant. If you love tapas and get within 100 miles of Valparaiso you need to stop there for a meal. They have the best grilled octopus I have ever had, anywhere. The chorizo is amazing and the pork delicious. THEN try the flan. Elena does a burnt sugar sauce that is delightful but her family recipe "white cloud" dessert is incredible. It's like a creamy custard meringue. I don't know how else to describe it. Finally, if you are at all interested in Spanish wines, download the wine list. It goes region by region, with maps, and is brilliant. Don Quijote is a gem,read more
I just discovered this place and let me say the food here is awesome, and there's an incredible selection of dishes and an nice atmosphere. The service was friendly and the server was knowledgeable which helped me make good choices. I really liked the Lenguado Frito dish I tried. The bread and appetizers we got were also great. The staff was also friendly, especially the manager who was quite charming and fun to talk to. They also have a neat little shop with Spanish products. I'm definitely hoping to come back in the future.read more
Such a wonderful restaurant. This place has a great atmosphere and truly authentic cuisine. The chef's are Spanish and a lot of their ingredients are imported from Spain. We love the Tapas and are just so thrilled to have this restaurant in our immediate area. It is definitely worth the trip, but you may need to make a reservation as it is a popular place!
Don Quijote is a favorite in the Valparaiso area, and is even beloved by visitors from all around. Tapas are a huge hit, and Don Quijote serves that and much more in their authentic Spanish cuisine restaurant...
