Casa del Mar opened in January 2006 and is part of the Krimo's group of restaurants,
the first of which opened in Seaton Carew on 4th May 1985.
The Tapas Restaurant, located on Navigation Point, overlooks Hartlepool’s popular Marina.
Casa del Mar mixes Spanish, Mexican and North African cuisines to serve
a delicious combination of Tapas, Fajitas as well as Large Dishes.
Various Cocktails are on offer alongside Spanish draft and bottled beers.
The delicious Sangria rivals that served in Spain, we are told.
Originally, Tapas were simply saucers placed on top of drinks
to prevent flies
from wandering in.
As time went by, bar owners began offering free nibbles
such as almonds, cheese and olives to accompany drinks.
Most Mediterranean countries have their own traditional “tapas”.
Meze from Greece to the Middle East, Antipasto in Italy,
Hors d’Oeuvres in France,
Kemia in North Africa, Petiscos in Portugal...
Here, at Casa del Mar we offer a great variety of Mediterranean specialities
for everyone to share and enjoy this unique type of communal dining.
We suggest that diners select 3 to 4 tapas each,
ending up with a
delicious variety of dishes to share.
