No visit to Seville is complete without a visit. Said to be the birthplace of Tapas, this venue does not disappoint. DO be prepared to wait and your patience will be well rewarded. The food is delicious and the decor is to die for.More

Allegedly the originator of tapas, regardless whether this is true or not, this place was excellent. Service was highly efficient and courteous. For the Spanish 3 pm lunch the place was packed. Very nice interior of colorful tiles on the walls.

Description
Located on the Calle Gerona, El Rinconcillo has been serving up Spanish cuisine in Seville since 1760. This historic restaurant boasts a rustic-chic dining room that is dressed up in cosmopolitan clothes. With understated whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, chandeliers and fresh flower arrangements, El Rinconcillo attracts everybody from local celebrities to families who come to enjoy traditional tapas and Sunday meals, and the mosaic-tiled bar with wine barrel tables is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and mid-afternoon glasses of wine. The menu is an eclectic collection of tapas dishes, stews, seafood, meat and sweet flans for dessert, and you couldn���t find a more quintessentially Spanish eatery in Seville if you tried.
