I've now been here several times. I want to give an updated review based on the overall experience we had last time. The food remains consistently good. The menu has not changed and there are still no Patatas Bravas! Everyone I know who has been here, asks the same question: Why? The service on this visit was spotty. Pretty much... More

Nice atmosphere for those looking for a restaurant on the Hermosa Beach Pier Ave. Good tapas selection. Their beer and wine choices are top-notch. Go for happy hour and enjoy the outdoor seating.

we had spent the day in the Santa Monica area, but decided to drive down to the coast to Manhattan Beach/Hermosa Beach for supper. We ended up in Hermosa Beach and had no idea where to go, so we just walked around, checked out the menu's at the different restaurants and ended up at Mediterraneo. Until the waiter mentioned to...

This is the best combination of quality, atmosphere, and tasty food in Hermosa Beach. The restaurant is set on Hermosa Pier square near the water. My friends and I usually go here once a month and we're never disappointed. The best time to go is for happy hour, which is buy one dish, get one free. They also have a... More

Something for everyone here. Portions are small...so order many items for the table to share. The red sangria is delicious.

Great spot for outside dining! We are visiting California for the first time! We chose Mediterraneo for a late lunch after spending the morning at the beach! Tapas is a great way to try various dishes on the menu! We loved the ordering system. We had Fava Bean Hummus, Spicy Black Bean Hummus, Caprese, Baked Goat Cheese, Grilled Cheese Banini,... More

Escaped to this place to get away from the drunks on the beach...fine food...great drinks...relaxed atmosphere..as with most places in SOCAL....service was awful....this must be the norm in SOCAL...service has gone out the door so the customer just sits there and waits...Oh Well..that is the way it is.

We had an amazing dinner here and I can't recommend it enough. Tapas style, which was fun and allowed us to try several dishes. Here's what we had: eggplant fries, kale ceasar salad, mussel/prawn/scallop antonio, tagliotini pomodoro, spinachi con garbanzos, chicken souvlaki. All delicious, my husband's favourite was the seafood, mine was the kale ceasar. It wasn't cheap, but I... More

What a top spot! Great view, great food, about 100000 beers on tap. It's a rad tapas restaurant that's not cheap but has great quality. They have a really novel ordering system where you just tick the items you want on the menu and it's taken away. Initially I was concerned about how I'd flag down a second menu for... More

Really surprised by how tasty the food was and the variety of options. The staff were great and the wine was good, too. Wonderful to sit on the front around sunset and watch the people pass by on the pier area as the sky turns dark and the lights/stars come out. Great atmosphere/environment.
