This is an omnivore's and vegetarian's dream come true -- a mixture of Mexican, African, Asian and Indian cuisines that transcends all of them. Serving brunch, lunch and dinner, this small, but cozy restaurant tantalizes your taste buds. Moderately priced, family friendly with an indoor and outdoor dining area, this is a real treat in the heart of Half Moon... More

Love the food here. It is my go-to place when I meet friends in Half Moon Bay. Always wonderful. Walk up to order and then take a seat and they will bring your order to you. Lots of vegetarian options.

Great find on the main street in Half Moon Bay. Walk up and order and they bring you your drinks and meals. Great variety of different hot entrees, sandwiches, and soups. Very fresh and delicious. Quesadilla with chicken and veggies was huge and unlike anything I have ever had....excellent. Highly recommend.

Stopped in here after a long time and found the menu to be a little different, although they still have "tapas from around the world." We each had a glass of wine, one Pinot and one Shiraz, and both were ok and decently priced. I had risotto with prawns and hubby had lasagna, which came with salad. Mine had an... More

We were looking for somewhere selling light lunches and this was just right - a good selection of interesting items. We had flatbreads or wraps (thai chicken, felafel and fried fish) and they were all very tasty.

After our lunch at Chez Shea, my husband and I felt fortunate that this was our choice. The food is organic and met my vegetarian needs. Both my husband and I thought the food was delicious, reasonable, and... More

Simple place with patio seating out the back too. Freshly prepared food, with the constant chopping of vegetables in your ears. Great falafels, salads.
