It's such a delight to sit on the covered porch at Ceviche to dine al fresco, or have a few drinks in the lively bar, or have dinner in one of the rooms of this converted bungalow. Wonderful atmosphere, the best tapas and I have ever had anywhere and a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The menu is varied and there... More

Great service, great food and great location but a little expensive for what it is and really really loud if you sit inside. They have a flamenco show downstairs that we wanted to see but the hostess gave us wrong information about the time of the show so we got there way too early and didn't feel like sticking around...

Good tapas and good service. However, drinks were terrible. They were flat no taste. It is a shame because their tapas are good and with tapas you should have good drinks. Maybe you are better off with a glass of wine but not their mixed drinks. Poor taste. Desserts were blah as well. The strawberry garnish on my dessert was... More

I went here on a date. We had the steak, ahi tuna, and shrimp dishes - everything was spectacular. The atmosphere was incredibly romantic, with a beautiful fountain and orb lights strung above the outside patio. The red wine sangria was delicious! Wait staff was highly trained about the menu, and incredibly friendly and attentive. Would certainly recommend as a... More

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.
