Our group was four adults and three kids. We ordered three of the soups and half of the hot tapas choices and not a single one was anything less than fantastic.

This is one of our “Go To” restaurants in the Orlando / Winter Park vicinity, something like a “New American” interpretation of tapas (aka Spanish grazing). Service is low-key, but highly attentive, wine list is significantly above average, and there is a great dining porch...More

I think it is in the $35 - $40 price range, but one can have smaller tapas and not the entire thing!

Santiago's Bodega presents a unique tasting experience featuring small plates that hopscotch between decadent (a warm Camembert wedge topped with sauteed garlic, onions, almonds, apricots, chopped dates, bell peppers), refreshing (yellow fin tuna, avocado, mango ceviche), exotic (lamb patties with fresh thyme, sherry, lemon zest) and just plain comfort-food-delicious (Roman meatballs on angel hair, or fried potatoes in a spicy sauce). As nothing costs over $15, there’s no major commitment, and if the relationship doesn't work, move along to the next selection. The menu’s ideal for sharing and for mixing up in endless combinations. Alternate between chevre tartlet, spanakopita, or smoked salmon carpaccio. Invent your own meal. Dining in such a way permits the rules of wine pairings to step aside like snooty impostors, and what goes best with dinner is exactly what tempts you. Santiago’s Bodega is a good-natured, low-key, food-lovers hangout, a neighborhood restaurant. - Margit Bisztray
