“Nice cafe with outside seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Prices are reasonable for cafe. Variety of tapas and beer. Makes a nice outing cafe and museum. The museum and cafe are right on the water in downtown St. Petersburg. You can go without paying admission to the museum.

“Refreshing food in a surreal environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Located on the ground floor of the Salvador Dali Museum this little cafe serves really good Spanish style food, and great espresso in a truly surreal environment *You do not have to pay an admission fee to enter the ground floor of the museum

“Food with a Spanish Accent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Nice selection of Spanish inspired food, well presented, tasty and well priced. If you do the 11.30 tour, you can have lunch then return to the museum with the audio guide afterwards.

“Great art makes you hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

A bit of Spanish styled fare, foccacia sandwiches, wraps, soups, salads. Better than what you'd expect in a museum restaurant, fun to sit either in the beautiful glass-enclosed space, or outside in the landscaped garden. And just in time after you've seen enough mind-bending paintings! Afterwards, you'll be ready to go shopping in the museum store.

“Great spot for lunch, even if you don't take in the art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Special menu and surroundings-I tried the Spanish version of a Cuban sandwich, along with an imported Spanish beer. They also serve Spanish tortillas, which are very similar to quiche. The inside dining area is snug and the service is walk up. The outside, however, is great! Tables under cover in a nicely landscaped yard complete with huge, oceanfront rocks. It overlooks a lovely park and a marina filled with sail boats of all sizes-an easy drive for a casual stroll or, in my case, a 45 minute cigar. Parking fee of $5.00 and museum entry $22.00, but the latter is not necessary to visit the cafe or gift shop.
