Ceviche

With more than 100 options on their menu, variety is the name of the game at Ceviche. There are so many choices you’ll have a tough time deciding which is your favorite. We suggest that you choose a broad variety. Of course, there’s also a variety of sangrias for you to try while you’re deciding. Ceviche has a lively ambience and can get crowded.

Tinatapa’s

615 Channelside Dr
Tampa, FL 33602

Surprisingly large portions help make this place stand out. Those large portions reflect the owner’s philosophy of what makes the restaurant special: the three S’s of sharing, socializing and sangria. Their desserts are recommended. There’s a relaxed atmosphere about the place, especially compared to some of the other spots on this list.

Vizcaya Restaurante & Tapas Bar

10905 N Dale Mabry Hwy
Tampa, FL 33618
(813) 968-7400

Vizcaya serves up eclectic Spanish cuisine, and even hosts Flamenco nights complete with dancer and a singer/guitarist. The shrimp tapas are recommended, as is the pate of duck liver. Chef/Owner Felix Piedra’s personal touch adds to the ambience. Vizcaya’s authenticity causes many diners to refer to it as a little taste of Spain in Tampa.
