I was so looking forward to eating at a Tapas restaurant.. signing for the new location at Johns Pass was strange..staff seemed bored, and couldn't be bothered. Just going through the motions. Food was overpriced for mediocre, ill prepared food. Not much to choose from on the tapas front..which isn't that the whole point of a Tapas restaurant? To have... More

My husband and I met six of our friends for dinner last night. The staff was very accommodating for our group. Our server, Caleb, was very good and patient with us--waiting while we all talked at the same time!! We enjoyed the half priced tapas and everyone was pleased with their selections

I had brunch here after reading a review for this restaurant, and reading that they had moved to this new location. We had to wait a bit for the food, but it was worth the wait. The french toast with maple hollandaise sauce was DELICIOUS! The build-your-own bloody mary station was great as well! I will definitely be going back!

Some local friends of ours raved about the food, so we decided to try it out with the family. I will start off first by saying the staff was extremely attentive and friendly, and we felt like they valued our business. The scene was split across two separate areas, a live jazz music area and a quieter dining area (where... More

I have been a frequenter of the old Cafe Alma in St. Pete and it was usually very busy so I was surprised when they announced their move to the beach. The news is that their food is still great and reasonably priced. The prix-fixe menu is affordable with generous portions . Half-price bottles of wine on tuesdays will be... More

Excellent food and wonderful atmosphere. We love the original Cafe Alma but this is still a great restaurant! The hostess who sat us, the bartender Tom and the waiter, Caleb were gracious, friendly and wonderful servers! We loved their happy attitudes and knowledge of the menu. The quality of food is top notch! Specifically the porkchops and seafood risotto! We... More
