“Fantastic Food and Nice Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I recently went to Cafe Sevilla in Long Beach with my boyfriend and a few more friends. The food was delicious! We tried the sample platters which had empanadas and braised short ribs, among many other things. Everything was great. The sangria wasn't bad either, so all this plus nice service created a great dining experience. There were also guitarist, which gave it a wonderful ambiance.

“Such a great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We planned to visit on a night when the flamingo dancers were NOT there. Didn't know if it would be cheezy or not. We had the best service! The tappas and drinks are fantastic. I will definitely plan to return on my next trip to Long Beach.

“delicious tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

The tapas were delicious, the mixed drinks good, and the service was friendly and knowledgeable and, although a bit inattentive, they allowed our party to relax and watch the entertaining people passing by the sidewalk patio.

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

This restaurant/bar/night club is a must when in Long Beach. Having eaten at many Spanish restaurants, my wife and I were extremely pleased with our dining experience. The menu was extensive, the service was nothing less than perfect, and the ambience was spot on.

Marienne - our server - was amazing. She offered great service as she was personable, knowledgeable about the menu items offered, and provided great suggestions as to what we should order. Further, she is well traveled and my wife and I had a great time discussing various destinations with her - especially Colombia.

To begin, the mojito which I ordered rivaled those served in Cuba and the Sangria my wife ordered was equally tasty. We highly recommend the Moorish Beef Brocheta with an asparagus side and the Traditional Paella. The brocheta was cooked to perfection and was extremely flavorful. The paella was superb as it was well-balanced and consisted of just the right amount of mussels, clams, calamari, shrimp, scallops, chicken & grilled sausage.

As for the dessert, Marienne recommended the Sevilla Sundae and she couldn't have been more right!!!! The caramel gelato was exquisite. My wife and I agreed that it was the best gelato either of us have ever had.

Finally, to end the evening, the manager of the restaurant stopped by our table to see how our experience was. What left a lasting impression was that she presented us with her business card which was a nice touch of both class and professionalism.

In short, if you are in Long Beach, Cafe Sevilla is a must!
