Stopped in for a cold beer with our tour guide, very warm and friendly Tapa Bar. This is where the locals hang out.

This is our regular lunch time haunt whenever we visit Seville. Get there early to grab a table. Food is excellent and fairly priced. It's always busy and manic with the traditional atmosphere.

Ate there twice. If you don't speak Spanish, ask for the English menu. Or see what they are eating at the next table and ask for the same. Staff has limited English (maybe better than your Spanish?). Wine passable. Aubergines, anchovies, squid, pork montadios and the usual tapa fares. We liked the place.

Having been recommended, and having some great reviews here on tripadvisor, we were expecting a great experience. It was fairly quiet, but the bar staff ignored us for ages. We ordered two glasses of red wine which were disgusting. The worst I've ever had in Spain. The tapas were totally forgettable, I can't even remember what we had. We left... More

This place serves unique tapas which I had not seen in Madrid or Barcelona. The eggplant lasagna dish was excellent and we really enjoyed that. The place is typical Spanish where you would have to stand around to drink and eat, but come early as the crowds really love this place.

As we wandered the winding streets, we noticed this place had a lively crowd that spilled out front. It seemed to be a local hang out where people were clearly enjoying themselves. We gave it a try. It did not disappoint. We asked for a recommendation from our server for tapas to try. He brought a savory pork dish served... More

I had tapas in different places in Seville, but these ones are the best ones. I recommend: tortilla rellena, pringá and croquetas caseras. Hmm sooooo tasty!!! BUT some waiters aren't very polite. This is a very well know place, so it's busy and crowded all the time. So they might serve you in a rush, with no smile on their... More

My friend David recommended this place to have dinner, and I believe it's the most authentic tapas bar I've been to in Sevilla. It's situated near the Giralda next to other expensive tapas places that are more modern. The tapas here are less than 3 euros and the service is very speedy for a popular place. You can order the...
