One of the best things in Seville is just walking thru its narrow streets just to find these old tapas place with amazing food. Established in 1670, the classical Sevillian tyle decor creates a cozy enviroment to enjoy authentic food from Andalucia.

Apparently the oldest bar in Spain. Very full on a Sunday night but good fun. Good tapas and good value wine.

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.
