We were staying at the Hermosa Beach for a few days, the first night strolling around searching for any place to eat after our long car journey... What a pleasant surprise, they have tapas , meat and fish with perfectly sized portions. Not particularly expensive considering all the other places we had eaten the past 12 days...well worth it considering... More

Given so many good reviews, we had high expectations of Mediterraneo. Unfortunately, everything was mediocre. The decor is like most other new restaurants: plain walls, exposed brick, industrial chic, which did not conjure up images of the Mediterranean. The server had an over-the-top friendliness, even though her attention to our table was minimal. We ordered six vegetarian items. The lentil... More

First night in LA on a business trip and my host recommended this place. Was a bit of a hike from my hotel but the walk along Hermosa Beach was worth it. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, outstanding food and stunning craft beers. If you're in the area, this place is a must.

This place is one of my absolute favorites! The atmosphere is wonderful, the people that work there are helpful and nice, and they have the best food and drinks. I love going there on Tuesday nights for Tapas Tuesday, 2-for-1 tapas all night long. Their bar tenders are pro mixologists without being pretentious.

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.
