Tampa is a bustling metropolis hosting people of a variety of different cultures. These cultures are represented in the city’s magnificent restaurants with influences from across the world. Here at Cox Mazda, we have a few favorites, which you can read about below.

Columbia Restaurant

Part of a local chain that has been serving the Tampa area since 1905, Columbia Restaurant is a long-standing staple of Tampa. Influenced by Traditional Spanish and Cuban cuisine, it is fitting that the restaurant is located in Historic Ybor, famous for the production of Cuban cigars. While the food is on the expensive side, the price is worth every delicious bite.


Ulele is a delectable, unique restaurant near . Serving native Floridian fare, Ulele embraces the history of Tampa and allows customers to experience a piece of it for themselves. Many of the dishes are cooked on a 10’ barbacoa grill, in native tradition. In addition to the food, Ulele also has an in-house brewery that produces tasty ales.

Ocean Prime

If you are looking to get a taste of the local seafood, look no further than Ocean Prime. This local eatery offers a classic steak and seafood menu, along with a variety of international wines. If you are looking for a place for a romantic date, this is it. With property on the water, Ocean Prime is an idyllic place to enjoy a meal.

Green Lemon

Green Lemon is a self-described ‘Fun Modern Mexican’ restaurant with an incredible range of options; there are even 4 taco-shell options! Along with a wide option of alcoholic beverages and a beautiful, vibrant interior, Green Lemon is a great place for people of all ages. There is such a wide range of options here that it is hard to be dissatisfied!
