We went here mid week for tapas-as-dinner. Radio Maria has one room with a bar, and another that is a sit-down restaurant. We are in the bar half, because we like ambiance to the room. We also like restaurants with hardwood floor, because carpets in restaurant seem too hard to really keep clean. Radio Maria has hardwood floors. We ordered... More

We had such high hopes for this Spanish restaurant. The interior is beautiful. The ceiling has tin tiles and the walls are covered with amazing art. We were seated promptly upon arriving.

Always enjoyable to travel around the world and come home to Champaign to find a unique restaurant always offering up some charms. Yes, the menu changes here and there, but that's the point of a good restaurant, if I wanted the same script, I'd go to a chain on Prospect Avenue. Or wait, I wouldn't. Great drinks and importantly, dessserts,... More

I had been here before and had a very nice tapas dinner. However, it seems as though they've changed the menu quite a bit. Not exactly tapas anymore - so the menu is a little hard to figure out - from appetizers, to full entrees, to a couple of tapas items. Regardless, it was very good and I would definitely... More

Very good place that serves tapas style with creative twists. The bar has an extensive cocktail list as well as a decent beer and wine list

Great downtown location in a nice decor. The chef has changed a few times over the years and so has the tapas menu...however not for the best. Still a very decent food, however not on par with what it used to be...enjoy!
