Seville Tapas, opened in the Spring of 2014, is a unique and welcome dining option nestled into the Princeton-By-The-Sea neighborhood of Half Moon Bay. The restaurant’s tagline is “Gourmet to Go” so they are definitely catering to a tourist crowd who may want to grab some great food and picnic, as well as the locals who are looking for some tasty made-to-order lunch or dinner options. The interior space of the restaurant has only a few tables but the front deck has many more and is a lovely setting to enjoy their food and drink options. I have been to Spain and understand Tapas, but for those who have never had them, I think this restaurant has a bit of a challenge in educating their customer base, if for no other reason; their menu offerings are plentiful! They offer over 30 Tapas, over 40 “Pepitos” or mini sandwiches, a few platters, soups, and salads, as well as a fun Kids Menu!
Once I got past being pleasantly overwhelmed by all of their offerings, my friend and I settled on a bowl of the Lobster Bisque, a plate of the day’s special which were beef empanadas, a Spanish Serrano ham with Manchego cheese and extra virgin olive oil Pepito and a smoked salmon with capers and Spanish (red) onion and olive oil Pepito, as well as a carafe of their Sangria.
I encourage you to try Seville Tapas and am confident you will find something that you and/or your kids will enjoy and it’s a great place to expand your culinary boundaries!
