Cafe Alma in John's Pass Village is exceptionally good, The food is delicious, the service is first rate, the martini's are really good, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Even if you are not famished, you can enjoy Cafe Alma's Tapas menu or excellent bacon cheeseburger with fries. Can't wait to return.

Went on the suggestion of a waiter at another restaurant and were not let down. Wide selection of drinks with two for one specials in place for some. As the first customer in for the afternoon we were warmly greeted and chose to sit at the bar to watch baseball game. We followed staff food suggestions and enjoyed some great... More

Looking for something different in Madeira Beach area, we've found it. Quaint little tapas restaurant. One side is a bar and one side is the restaurant. Both serve the same exact food. Went on a Tuesday and they were offering half price tapas and half price of bottles of wine. Tapas were amazing. Also tried a couple of entrees. The... More

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
