Great Tapas, good atmosphere, and Happy Hour deals!

The food was inventive and tasty, the staff attentive. The atmosphere was cozy inside, and it was fun people watching on the patio.

If you can't go to Europe or the Mediterranean then Mediterraneo (Med) will give you the same experience in California. Not you typical beach restaurant from the sharing of plates, to Spanish tapas, Chorizo, or Pisco Queirolo ( a Peruvian alcohol. This is the way we should eat all the time!! The staff is excellent, and work great as a... More

Amazing tapas! Even better that most of them are half of between 5 and 7. They have half off on beers and great happy hour wine. I recommend to all of my friends!

We love Tapas from regular visits to Spain so decided to try this place. The food was very good, can't remember what we had. However, each dish came separately so clearly they are adding their own twist to the idea of Tapas. Not really a major issue but we just love having all the different tastes together.

This is a must-try dining option and is located in the heart Downtown Hermosa Beach just steps from the beach. Very creative cuisine and my favorites are the small tasting plates which are meant to be shared. Worth waiting for is the outdoor patio dining ideal for people watching.

The food is excellent. The location is perfect. I love the outside seating . It is comfortable and could be a romantic date. It is only a block from The beach. Enjoy yourself

We had the best time at Mediterraneo. There were four of us and we weren't sure what to expect. Our waitperson informed us it was happy hour which meant that for each small plate we ordered, the second one would be 1/2 price. The staff was wonderful in helping us decide what would be an appropriate amount of food for... More

2 for 1 tapas and half off of beers and discounted house wines, it doesn't get better than this! On Tuesdays there is half off tapas all night. High quality food. I could eat here a couple times a week!

I enjoyed my meal, with four tapas dishes ordered, but it was not exceedingly good and was very expensive for the amount of food provided: Deviled Eggs (with harissa oil) - $5 -- four half eggs, very good. House Marinated Mediterranean Olives - $6 - not great, as I have had better at many grocery store olive bars. Chilled Green... More
