Description: En 1844 el ilustre poeta y dramaturgo vallisoletano, José Zorrilla y Moral, se alojó en la Hostería del Laurel mientras escribió su obra más conocida “Don Juan Tenorio”. Se dice que gran parte de su inspiración para la creación de sus personajes y encuadre de la historia vino dado por aquellos que les rodeaban en aquellos momentos. En la obra, ambientada en la Sevilla de 1545, en los últimos años del reinado de Carlos I de España, La Hostería del Laurel es la taberna en la que Don Juan y Don Luis habían acordado reunirse transcurrido un año después de su apuesta, es donde se desarrolla casi todo el Acto I de la obra. Si visitas Sevilla, y aún más si lo haces en Noviembre, es de obligada cita esta taberna, antigua "casa de gulas", casas de comidas, que abundaban en Sevilla en el siglo XIX, y que hoy, con otro nombre, siguen llenando sus calles, y aún más en este mítico barrio de Santa Cruz. Bienvenidos a la Hostería del Laurel

After walking a lot, this place was behind the Cathedral. It gave me time to have 2 "cañas" (glass of beer) while the talk about history. Is a cheap place, good to hang out.

As a rule, we don't eat at tourist areas whenever abroad and this Hosteria del Laurel proved worth every cent. The main entrance of this restaurant is on the side of the hotel which on a glance, it seems like a hole in the wall. Once inside it is quite big with multiple rooms that invite for a nice experience. And that was what we had that night, the next morning for breakfast and two other dinners as well. Seville has a lot to offer regarding restaurants but this place was top on service, quality and ambiance. One thing we found it amazing was that although you were initially attended by one waiter, you could ask anything to whoever happen to pass by at any moment and the order was fulfilled in no time. Don't wait for me to mention anything special, for everything we had tasted there was excellent. If there is one thing that we did value a lot was service. These people made every effort for us to feel like royalty and to have a beautiful meal. And if you know the Spanish cooking, you could modify your plate as well. We had more seashells added to our paella de mariscos and it was finger licking. I would go back in an instant.

This is a lovely restaurant in a quiet spot near the main attractions of Central Seville. A shaded courtyard or rustic interior space make a good atmosphere. The menu is very varied and should suit most people's tastes, and reasonably priced. The staff are helpful and gracious to those who are gracious too. Highly recommended.
