A great place on the plaza to sit outside in the beautiful California sunshine and enjoy many different tasty tapas. Service was a little slow with more waiting than I would have liked between our choices but everything was very good. The BOGO free deal at happy hour is fun - you can feel like a kid circling everything you... More

I loved this tapas place and my friend and I happened to walk in starving after a 24 mile bike ride along the strand from hermosa to Venice beach and it was happy hour!' We got 6 different tapas for a great price and loved the meatball thing with red sauce (I can't remember the name but get it)!! And... More

My second time there. Each time I've taken co-workers and they've loved it. Sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather. Although it is a tapas restaurant (small plates), the food served was delicious (try the Morocco Prawns, they're great). The drinks were also good, although half my glass was taken up by a super large ice cube (beware of that).... More

Beer selection is incomparable, manager & servers are encyclopedias of info on the stuff. Wine list is well thought out as well. Tapas with a nod to Italian dishes too are well executed. The Happy Hour with 2 for 1 tapas & 1/2 price beer can't be beat. You're always treated as an old friend here.

I went with a business group to this restaurant. It was my first visit to a tapas restaurant. The best part of tapas is everyone ordering something different and getting to share and experience a variety of choices. However, tapas are appetizers and small portions. These are not meal portions. If you drink, this is a great place to experience... More

The mdnu is great, as is the service. But best of all, they have a side room where the noise level is a bit muted, making it ideal for a business meeting. Neddless to say, the food wss outstanding. Many unusual and delicious dishes.

I absolutely love the baked goat cheese and the olive apps. So glad to have found this and looking forward to my next... More

the food on Pier Plaza in Hermosa is generally "bar food". Mediterraneo is easily the nicest place on the plaza. It serves its food tapas style, with an extensive beer/wine list. The downside is that it is much too expensive, given the amount of food that is served. Happy Hour to the rescue--you get 2 for 1 on select tapas... More
