For what you get the food is pricey (tapas style) but it's very good! They have good happy hour specials until 7 on weekdays.

Great place to sit outside and nibble on small plates...but eat something before or after if your are hungry. I visited this place last year and was disappointed that the menu had not changed at all. My wife loves this place and that makes sense. I think most women would like this small plate concept, but not so much for... More

This Spanish Tapas restaurant is situated on Pier Plaza within walking distance of the beach and shops and has a large outdoor patio. They serve a wide variety of delicious small dishes and offer a good happy hour menu and excellent sangria and selection of draft beers.

We enjoyed the tapas and they were very reasonably priced but red wines started around $70 and went to $300. I think this is too pricey - about a 500% markup from what we found via Google for retail value. Tap beers were also pricey at $12 each. I'd say the service quality was a bit off - very slow...

We had a change of plans down in Hermosa last night. We walked into one place...to old and too gamie. The sushi place had too many TVs, it felt like a sports bar. Mediterraneo was somewhat quiet for a Saturday night and the menu didn't capture us immediately nor did the cocktail menu. We told the bartender essences of what... More

Delicious tapas, full bar and nice wine list. We shared green lipped mussels, watermelon salad and an eggplant w cheese. All well prepared and a perfect taste treat for lunch. Andrea provided excellent service. Here for the Labor Day fiesta - the people watching was a hoot!

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
