Share This!

It’s finally opening – Jaleo by Chef José Andrés will be opening for dinner on the West Side at Disney Springs on March 17! (Lunch will begin being offered later in the month.)

This will be the fifth Jaleo location in the U.S.. It is the first to open in Florida and will be the largest location to date. Jaleo’s menu will showcase the rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine. Jaleo will feature an extensive menu of tapas, as well as savory paellas, sangrias, and a selection of Spanish wines and sherries. Jaleo invites Guests to share plates.

In addition, Pepe by José Andrés, the first brick and mortar location of the chef’s popular Spanish food truck, will also be opening for lunch and dinner on March 17. It can be found adjacent to the entrance of Jaleo.  Pepe will offer a diverse menu of Spanish sandwiches, or bocatas, both hot and cold, as well as gazpacho and salads to go. The quick-service location will also sell Spanish sangria, complete with sangria ice cubes to prevent any dilution of the drink in the incredibly hot Florida climate.

José Andrés was named as one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in both 2012 and 2018, holder of 2 Michelin stars and “Outstanding Chef” and “Humanitarian of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation.

To make a reservation at Jaleo, please call (407) WDW-DINE. OpenTable reservations will also be accepted for the restaurant on opening day.
