The food was pretty much tasteless. Cold beans, gummy rice and meat that tasted like it was leftovers. Greasy fried bananas.

I just went there last night with friends and had the paella. It was good; however, it lacked the saffron flavor. It was plenty. The fish soup was delicious. I also had a little bit of ox tail which was great, and some chicken.

Small restaurant with more tables outside than in. You will love the aromas when you walk in. Tables pushed together with what I took to be families, talking and laughing-having fun. Staff helped me with ordering. Wonderfully flavored food, my best since leaving south Florida....More

We went to Felix Continental Cafe on many occasions. over the years. The food is good, the service excellent (very friendly staff) and the location is great, especially outside the restaurant, right on the Orange Circle. Great in springs and summer nights.

Very good Cuban/Spanish food, tasty and well prepared. Extensive menu of chicken, beef, pork and seafood. Excellent value--price not expensive, and all meals include dessert (try the tres leches cake). Really good choice in downtown Orange.

Old Town Orange is a super fun place for Collectible/Antiques fans, and lunch at Felix is very good, the Staff are friendly and polite. HOWEVER, I and my friends will NOT return until the Ladies Restroom is renovated! Face it, Guys, this is not Havana!...More
