There is something extremely satisfying about eating a meal in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, most late night meals end up being at restaurants like Denny’s or Taco Bell. While those restaurants may be great when you may have had too much to drink, they aren’t exactly a culinary delight. If you are looking for a great late night meal in Tampa Bay you now have some great late night dining options. One of these three Tampa eateries will be sure to please your taste buds well into the night.
Best Tampa Bay Late Night Restaurant #1-Ceviche
Ceviche is one of South Tampa’s best restaurants. They have delicious tapas that are great for dinner dates or a night out with friends. The atmosphere at Ceviche is one of the best in the city and their sangria will have you dancing the night away. As a college student I lived within walking distance from Ceviche and since my budget was tight I would slip down to Ceviche in the middle of the night for a slice of their decadent chocolate orange cake. The best part about Ceviche is that they serve food late into the night. During the week the dining room is open until midnight and on the weekend you can eat at Ceviche’s until 1 am.
Ceviche is located at 1502 S. Howard Ave. Tampa, FL 33606. Phone: (813) 250-0203

Bella’s restaurant has been one of Tampa’s favorite eateries for a very long time. Bella’s specializes in Italian food. No matter what time I have been to Bella’s my meals have never been less than delicious.
