Description: 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

Wife and I went for a late lunch. Weather beautiful and had table outside on the porch. Great service, quiet, and most importantly delicious. Definitely would go back. Very busy evenings, be aware. Really enjoyed the Spanish Board [trio of 3: Tuna Ceviche, spicy chicken kabob, spicy potatoes] and the shrimp risotto.

Service, food and ambiance get a 10 on this lovely spot in Ivanhoe Village, Orlando.
From the greeting we received by James, to the perfectly roasted lamb and bite sized tuna tartare, you will find amazing eats. Fresh made to order omelets or pasta, scrumptious croissant French toast and bottomless Mimosas or Sangria, anyone can enjoy brunch at Santiago’s! Not to be missed.

This is a great place to catch up with friends . The happy hour includes beer, wine and well drinks . There are a few nightly appetizers/tapas available such as tacos, empanadas, pot stickers , etc. the sangria is delicious . The seating is inside and outside . Parking can be challenging but there is street parking and valet . The servers are friendly and efficient . There is also a great brunch on the weekends but you need reservations !! Check out the flaming cheese

I LOVE this place. Wonderful Brunch on Sunday's. You do need to make reservations. The food was great with great variety. You can get individual omelets and they have bottomless Mimosas. You can also order off a limited menu and they will bring your order to you. You have to try their French toast. It's totally amazing.

This is the best place ever that I have visited in Orlando! The service was just amazing, my server was Remi! and she was amazing. I wish I had all the servers names because all of them where like a true team! they where all very friendly and one of them sang me Happy Birthday but he should be on American Idol!
The food was to die for, I cant decide which food was the greatest! Please you must try the Mimosas, the best ever. The $40 for the brunch was well worth it and I would do it all over again! Thank you all for the best birthday ever!
