This is a beautiful outdoor venue in a shade , relatively quiet square adjacent to a major tourist attraction. So, they can get away with tourist-quality food. In fact the food was okay, but not anything special. You come here for the peace, beauty and traditional hospitality of Spain. However, the staff here was shockingly rude. Apparently the outdoor seating... More

My husband and I ordered the Rabo de Toro and Spinach Seville-Style to share. The oxtail was meltingly tender and delicious and the spinach had an interesting and delicious hint of (I think) coriander. We were served by a very pleasant young man. Altogether a delightful meal for us.

We were too early to visit the cathedral on Sunday so we had some time to visit Alianza. Normally a place we would avoid - too touristic - however, conveniently nearby. They had some nice tables in the shadow and a free table (it was quite busy). The waiter was fast and provided use with some decent meals. I do... More

We went to Alianza for lunch while on a day visit to Seville. We sat outside. Restaurant location is good. The server made it quite clear that he was busy and we should get a move on in ordering our food. When the food finally arrived the French Fries we had ordered had been replaced by potato chips. We were... More

We stopped here for lunch. Lovely location, just next to the Alcazar. We had a nice meal but it was a little bit pricey, service was quick and friendly.

Went to Cafe Alianza at the recommendation of friends who had had the opportunity to enjoy the company and food of Jose and Maria. What genuine, welcoming people who serve terrific food in their restaurant. If we were spending more than 2 days in the city we would go back. It is on my list for next time. The oxtail... More

Some of the reviews of this most pleasant little restaurant seem to have mistaken it for the sterile nameless place next door. Alianza is a reminder of how a small establishment can make its customers feel great, even in a tourist area. Staff Maria and José could not have been more pleasant. Owner and chef Janet comes to your table... More

The staff is friendly but it is all. We found plastic in our food, and the tortilla was as bad as at Mc Donald's. Very disappointed. Get away.

Had lunch here at the weekend. Lovely little square. Good service. Tasty food. I had a pork stew which was delicious and my husband had stew of squid which is hard to cook properly but was also delicious. Great value restaurant.

We had the meatballs which tasted like processed sausages, squid in ink which was very glutinous and rich, garlic prawns which were very overpriced at 17 euros - didn't really have much of a garlic flavour, there were not many and they were very small. We did like the melon and ham but you can't really go wrong with that!... More
