Extremely busy place but service good and efficient. Remember Tapas Tuesday - you have to ask for the special menu. We were a party of six and we were served quickly since we were attending a concert at the Maffey Theatre close-by. Good choice.

This is a great place for tapas and sangria or wine. We love sharing small dishes and this is the place to do it. The little place on the other corner is delightful for a smaller, more casual setting. Yum food.

I usually travel to Tampa at least once a year and always stop in this restaurant to eat. I enjoy the sangria - loaded with fruit, the food - fresh and delicious, and the ambiance - dark and romantic. Food is always consistent - even when staff is a little off. You pick and choose from a large selection of... More

This restaurant has been a favorite for several years; the service remains good; the sangria excellent; however the change in the menu was not for the better; I suspect a cost motive at hand; the decision will clearly effect the quality; but will return to see if they improve; hate to abandon an old favorite.

We had a wonderful dinner of small plates at this charming tapas restaurant. Everything was wonderful including the spinach with figs and bacon, cold asparagus, meatballs made from veal, chorizo and pork, patatas bravas, shrimp over guacamole and a plate with skewers of grilled meat and vegetables. The pitcher of sangria was the perfect accompaniment. The atmosphere is very old... More

We were driving back from Orlando, starving, needing a good meal and stopped here and had a great experience. We had to dine of their late night menu, but the food was still excellent. The guac and the sausages really stood out. We sat outside, and the place was completely empty, but really relaxing. Great service.

My sister, brother and I had been to the St. Petersburg location almost a year ago when we were scoping out a place for my brother to live and had a great experience. This time, my husband was along to help with the actual move and my little sister treated us to dinner at the Tampa Ceviche. WOW!!! I wish... More

Having recently moved to Tampa from NYC, my wife and I were expecting the food quality and availability to be restricted in Tampa compared to what we were used to. While there may not be as many options as we had in NYC, we have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of food that we have been able to find.... More

Cozy street side cafe that had the feel of Spain. Excellent menu with a variety of choices to include a delightful cheese board with 5 Spanish cheeses, grapes, figs, guava & apples. The host came by and shared his detailed knowledge of each cheese. The sangria was made from a dry red wine, a pleasant change from the sweet kool-aid... More
