I love this restaurant!!! High Quality Food, is just one of the many positive things I can say, along with everyone who has eaten here! My School had an event there a few years ago and we learned a lot about the Spanish Culture!!! We were entertained with amazing Spanish dances! P.S I was never a big Spanish food lover until I ate here!!!!

Our daughter recently asked if we could go to Don Quijote for a special occasion. It had been a few years since our last visit to this place and when our appetizers arrived, we were immediately reminded why we didn't return. If you like "french fried artichoke bottoms," "french fried califlower," "french fried chicken livers," etc., you'll like it here. My appetizer, the sauteed artichokes with cured spanish ham, was barely edible (and I am one who can eat almost anything...). When the waitress came by and picked up my barely touched plate, she didn't even bother asking if there had been something wrong with it - a sign that she's either used to seeing that happen or couldn't have cared less if there was a problem. Things didn't get better. One of our guests ordered the swordfish. It arrived with not only an overly "fishy" smell, but it tasted fishy too - something that shouldn't happen with fresh, well prepared fish. Someone else ordered the Portuguese-style Salad - "crisp lettuce, artichoke hearts, garbanzos, roasted red peppers, onions, olives and sliced eggs." Of these ingredients, most clearly came directly from a can and weren't prepared on site. We had six people in our group and not one had praises for the food, service or ambiance at Don Quijote. It wasn't very busy, so we weren't able to chalk it up to that. We'd rate it as "fair" at best and frankly, it's one of those places that's overrated by most other locals.

Everything is kept frozen including soup, rice and more.. The food is not fresh and most of the stuff are heated up in microwave. If that is something you like then that is the place for you. I am never going back there.

Where else in Northwest Indiana can you get octopus in your appetizers and finish off with a house specialty port? Great food and service. A Valparaiso tradition for 30 years.

This is as authentic as it gets in the USA. We enjoyed every menu item we have tried. Whenever we are near Valpaiso, we stop in.
