Opened in 2014, Seville Tapas is the realization of our dream to share the flavors of Spain with the people of the coastside.
Tapas, small snacks meant to be shared, are designed to encourage conversation among diners. There are many stories surrounding the origin of tapas, but, since the word itself means “lid” or “top” it seems likely to have come from the custom of serving sherry with a small slice of bread, which is placed on top of the glass between sips to keep fruit flies from being attracted to the sweet drink.
Whaterever the origin, tapas have evolved into a sophisticated cuisine. We’ve provided a primer, below, for those unfamiliar with the foods for which Spain is famous.
Romesco (ro-mess-ko) A traditional dressing and sauce made with fire roasted peppers, garlic, marcona almonds, olive oil and sherry vinegar.
Tortilla Española (tor-tee-ya es-pan-yo-la) The most common gastronomic specialty found throughout Spain. Layers of potato and onion are cooked in olive oil, then mixed with beaten eggs and cooked together into a tart. Similar to an Italian frittata.
Alioli (al-ee-oh-lee) Also called aioli. Mayonnaise infused with a mix of fresh and roasted garlic.
Jamón Serrano, Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (ha-moan ee-ber-ee-ko day ba-yo-tah) These famous Spanish hams, from specially bred pigs (the white landrace and the black Iberian, respectively), are dry-cured for at least 2 years, enhancing the taste and sharply differentiating it from italian prosciutto. Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, the most prized, comes from free-range pigs fed solely on wild grasses and acorns, and is cured for up to 48 months. All Spanish hams are thinly cut and served in a variety of ways in Spanish gastronomy.
Fuet, Salchichón Spanish-style Salami
EVOO Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. We only use Spanish of course!

Just 30 minutes from San Francisco and 10 minutes from Half Moon Bay, Princeton Harbor, whose streets are named after famous colleges, was built in 1908 to serve the tourists who rode the Ocean Shore railroad from the city to explore our beaches.
Once the haunt of both rumrunners and the Prohibition Agents tracking them, it is now home to one of the largest fishing fleets in Northern California, and fresh fish, crab, salmon and squid are available to purchase right from the boats. There are also charters for whale watching or fishing, a public fishing pier, kayak and stand-up paddle board rentals, and a marina protected by a beautiful rock breakwater.
