A pleasant surprise

4 Posted on 06 / 22 / 2014

Exterior belies charming interior that was open to the kitchen and inviting . The live music was comforting but not intrusive. And Stephanie's service was delightfully attentive.

The food was amazing. Our favourite was the cauliflower rice pilaf with the veggie patty a close second. The flourless chocolate cake rounded out our lovely dinner and the white sangria was a pleasant surprise.

We would describe the prices as moderate and may suggest more vegan options but all in all we would be happy cows to return!

Pros: Food/menu, Service, Atmosphere
Cons: More expensive than anticipated

Steam and Chill

4 Posted on 05 / 04 / 2014

During our stay at St. Pete Beach in Florida recently we discovered the 'Steam and Chill' restaurant, which was so good we visited on more than one occasion.

The vegan menu was excellent, with lots of good, fresh, tasty dishes , especially the 'bespoke' vegan dessert that was made just for us ! The staff were very friendly and helpful and helped make the entire meal one to remember.

We would definitely recommend the 'Steam and Chill' to everybody !

Pros: Good parking, Good value for money
Cons: Vegan friendly, not vegan

Easily best place in all FL

I would eat here regularly if I lived nearby.

Vegan tapas, all clearly marked on the menu. Head chef is vegan. They do it right. I'd tell you what I ate but I think we ordered nearly everything ans it was all good.
Could see as nice date spot. We were there on a Sunday and they had a guitarist & you can sit at the tapas bar and watch them get down.

Great dinner, good value, filling but light, veg simple but so tasty.
If anywhere in Tampa area, make it a destination.

Pros: great flavors, great value, clear vegan label

Excellent choice(s)

Just took the family (incl. two daughters, 10 & 13) here and am struggling to think of a better meal we've had anywhere. From the moment we walked in, the ambience was brilliant - attentive, friendly staff, pleasant live acoustic guitar music, etc. The choices were plentiful - something for everyone, including almost 10 vegan dishes, and being tapas, there's room to choose a fair few. The menu is well marked. Each dish appeared to be individually and carefully prepared and not short on taste either. We're only here for 4 days, but will probably be going back for lunch, breakfast or dinner. Dinner cost us about $100 + drinks for the four of us, but we've been well fed and it was definitely worth it.

Pros: Atmosphere, Number of choices, Dishes made to order
Cons: Slightly pricy (but worth it)

Consistently Fabulous!

Visiting for a week, we went to Chill for dinner three times. Tapas style dishes. Everything we ate was delicious. Lots of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options ... enough vegan options that I ordered something different on each visit, and ordered the Jamaican Beans & Rice every time. Vegan, Veg, & GF are clearly marked on the menu. Unfortunately, no vegan desserts.

Menus on the website are out of date. Did not go to Steam, the adjacent coffee shop/breakfast restaurant. Looking at the outdated on-line menu, does not appear to be nearly as vegan/veg friendly, but this may have changed.

Pros: Well marked menu... no guessing, Tapas style offers lots of variety
Cons: No vegan desserts, Tapas style can be expensive
