Multiple locations, check their website

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.

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.
