Four of us enjoyed tapas and drinks at Ceviche before attending a concert at the Mahaffey. When we arrived tables were filled, but the hostess was able to find us a table, and service was great so we had to trouble making it to our performance on time. We happened to arrive on Tapas Tuesday, so the tapas we ordered were all at special prices. Everything we ordered was deicious: Ceviche de la casa, Baba Ganoush, Patatas Bravas, Espinacas, and Piquillos Rellenos. We also enjoyed house made sangria and mojitos. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. We parked in the theater parking lot and walked to the restuarant and back. It was only about 3 blocks.

I loved the tuna ceviche along with a salad. Great selection of specialty cocktails. The Bacardi con Leche could be considered a fine dessert. Highly recommend.

The perfect place to go before a show or if going to the Dali museum.Just three blocks from both. They specialize in Paella and Tapas. Wonderful sangria, both white and red. Amazing staff and pleasant surroundings make a meal there above and beyond. We have been there at least four times before and have consistently enjoyed the place.

Excellent restaurant. Have visited the Spanish Restaurants in the Ironbound section of Newark, NJ which is famous for their Spanish restaurants. This would fit right in. Great food in Florida. Only issue is we are a family of 5 and the answering machine said they take reservations for 6 and greater. When we got there they asked if we had a reservation so would recommend making one anyway.

My husband and I went for a relaxing lunch at Ceviche after visiting the Dali Museum. Unfortunately, despite the beautiful setting, the lunch was bland and we questioned our decision to eat here. We should have gotten the hint at the start when we walked into the restaurant at 12:30 and only two tables were occupied. However, previous reviewers seemed to like this place, so we stayed. We waited at the hostess stand for five minutes with no one in site to greet or seat us which was clue #2 that we should have left. Our stomachs at this point were getting the best of us. When finally greeted, we asked to sit outside since it was a nice day and chose a perfect table overlooking the park. Our server was nice enough, just not experienced. And what is going on with servers these days where they use the word "we" when addressing a table (like "have we dined here before?")? Who started this trend? This was one of those servers. She "we"d us on everything. In addition to not knowing how to use the English language properly, she did not know how to pour wine. If you are a server at restaurant that serves wine, you should know how to pour and serve it properly. She was also very forgetful in bringing things we requested like salt and pepper. On the food front, it was so-so. The tuna ceviche was good, but really small. It was definitely not worth $13. The salad we ordered had tiny bits of serrano ham and hearts of palm which sounded yummy on the menu, but they were chopped so small one could hardly taste them or even notice them. The meatballs lacked flavor and came out luke warm. The only thing we really enjoyed was the potato bravas.
All in all, I can not recommend the restaurant except for taking in the view over a drink. It did not live up to the reviews and seemed more like a tourist trap than anything.
