Restaurant Review


Fornos of Spain is a longtime favorite with diners looking for good Spanish food served in huge portions at a reasonable price.


The exterior is attractive Spanish hacienda styling, The very spacious 250 seat dining area is spread over several rooms with interior decor attractively done up with chandeliers, walls adorned with lit murals, and tables set with white linens.


The reason to venture out to this restaurant is their well prepared, Spanish food served in a festive setting, although, on busy weekend evenings to noise level can be high.

The service at this restaurant is outstanding with many waiters eagerly standing by to attend to your needs.


Immediately after you are seated, you are served two excellent types of bread, a nice warm, crusted, tasty bread and a platter of garlic bread. Accompanying the bread is a a salad with a variety of leafy green vegetables, heart of palms, tomatoes, onions, radish, and cucumbers; and a dish of fresh olives and virgin olive oil.


Be forewarned, you will need to have a gargantuan appetite to finish all the food.


This is a good place to celebrate a birthday or special family occasion. For Birthday Parties there is a choice of a cake for dessert or a selection of desserts.
