excellent weekday dining – friendly staff and tasty foods at an affordable price.
Great Happy Hour – Mediterraneo is a great place; it lends a little classiness to the Hermosa Pier which is otherwise populated by dive bars and bars that tend to be frequented by barely legal drinkers.
This has been my and my friends' favorite place to eat for a few years. It's a great location to sit outside and enjoy the view and the great summer weather.
The happy hour is awesome; $3 house wine (the white house wine is my favorite) and two for one tapas.
Jordan and Joe are my two favorite servers and I always ask to be seated in their section because they are really attentive. Example: when happy hour is almost over the server will come by our group and ask if anyone wants to order another round to make sure that its still at the discounted price. They make sure to empty the wine carafe competely into your glass before taking it away.
I would suggest making a reservation on Friday and Saturday nights as it is a popular location.
Awesome Happy Hour Special – I went there to meet with some of my family for dinner. They have an awesome selection of Tapas that are buy one get one free for their happy hour. The waitress we had was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Great place will definitely be going back.
Favorite Spot in Hermosa! – This place has never dissappointed me. the food is awesome.. if you like tapas, GO.
I come here once a week with my boyfriend-- we are mid 20's. We sit outside everytime and you can't beat the happy hour! just wish it lasted longer so I wouldn't have to leave work early to get there!! =)
MY FAVE SPOT @ HB – I love, love, LOVE this place! I probably eat here at least 5 times a month. The bartenders and waitresses are always helpful and happy! Not to mention the Happy Hours are fun and Mondays & Tuesdays are buy 1 tapa get 1 free! You can't beat that! The atmosphere is great, the decor is tres chic and the patio's full of people to watch!!
Great place!! I<3 it!
Bad service, atmosphere, dessert, and drinks – If it were not for the pictures at the top I would think I was not reviewing the same place. This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. First the seating is so crammed together it is not as enjoyable to "people watch" as you may think and then they shove under heating lamps that make you feel like a rotiserie chicken. We asked them to turn the lamp down or move us (three times) and even though other tables became available they did not. We only ordered desserts but they were very dry and tasteless and the sauces/creams described with each was not what we recieves. The apple martini I had was also bad, it was basically pure alcohol. Which maybe for some it good but it burned the whole way down.
Best Restaurant in the South Bay!!! – I love this place!! I came here for a birthday party and its now my favorite spot! Not your typical cheesy South Bay restaurant. Great menu, wines you'll love and a great view. Dinner is wonderful and lunch on the weekend is worth it!! Its a definite must - plus, its the best mediterranean food you'll find in LA.
Love this place – The food here is amazing. I don't think there is one bad thing on the menu, so no matter what you order, you can't go wrong here!!! The specialty martinis are great also. This is the best tapas restaurant I have been to. Friendly and fast service too.
Crowded & Loud – Ok- to be fair, I don't even know if the 2 star rating is valid, because I didn't stay here long enough to eat.
The reason I decided to come here was because I was meeting up with a first date who lives in Redondo. But, when I looked around and noticed the great deal of spill-over from the Hermosa Beach Pier party scene, along with a good number of tourists, I decided this wasn't the place to have my first date.
Sure- if you're down at the HB Pier and want to go someplace a little more upscale than what surrounds it (Like Hennessy's, the Poopdeck, etc.), you may fare well, its just not the secluded out-of-the way tapas place to go for a first date...
DONT MISS OUT – IF YOU ARE IN THE SOUTH BAY, DONT MISS THIS SPOT. HERMOSA IS KNOW FOR ITS PARTIES AND BARS. FINALLY SOMEONE IS LEADING THE CHARGE IN FOOD! FUN AND WELL PRICED! GREAT SELECTION OF DRINKS TO COMBO WITH FOOD. ONLY DOWN FALL, SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE IN HERMOSA, BATHROOMS NEED SOME WORK!
