Excellent tapas bar with great food. We actually ordered too much food as the portions were really large. (Unlike other restaurants in the area) Sirloin steak with potatoes in a whiskey source was the stand out dish and I really wish I hadn’t ordered the...More

This cafe has a great selection of Tapas that also includes loads of non-seafood options which is rare. We had several plates and all of them were delicious and fresh. The price was also really great value. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Super disappointed by the tapas here. It was very bland, slimy, cold and potato based. On the plus side the sangria was good

Carmella is a popular Tapas restaurant in the Santa Cruz area of Seville. The food was delishous, especially the deep fried battered prawns. Mash and fried loin of pork also lovely. Inexpensive but tasty.More

Had lunch here and decided to go for one of their selections of tapas. We were served five for 18 euros. Some were better than others and we’ve had more consistent and larger portions in other local places. Service friendly and efficient.

We serve the beers in small glasses, we call "caña de cerveza" and also can serve in "botellines" (small bottles of 25 cl.), all very cold. :)

Description
Carmela Bar is opened since 1994, it is an excellent reference to taste TAPAS, an Andalusian tradition. It is located between the Santa Cruz and La Juderia area, a very distinctive place of the Centre of Seville. This is the perfect place to make a break and sit down in its great terrace near the most important monuments of our city: the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Giralda. It is also located very near La Carboneria, a famous place for live Flamenco music.
