Spanish food at it's best. Their paella is excellent. You can make a meal of their tapas appetizers alone. The other great unknown is the gazpacho on a hot summer night!!

Was there last night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Never been but will definitely be back! Got there about 7pm and the place was about 30% full. Figured because it's summer in Ft. Lauderdale and not many touristas around.
Joe the owner and Serge our waiter were extremely accommodating because our dtr Jessica is in a full leg brace due to an accident she had in Spain. They made sure she was as comfortable as could be.
Now let's get to the food part. I can't begin to tell you how DELICIOUS everything was.
From the appetizers to the main course ( wife had Paella I had the ribeye) everything was just perfect. As far as the wait staff goes Serge was definitely on top of his game!
Excellent service. If you recall I mentioned at the beginning of this review that the place was about 30% full when we arrived. When we finally left the place was PACKED with people waiting outside to get in. Definitely worth the wait! Highly recommended!

The food is really excellent. The owners are very attentive. The menu changes but there is always fresh fish the staff is very accommodating in all respects especially if a diner wants to make some changes. There are many kitchens in South Florida where the chefs are prima donnas—-“this is how we make it and you have to eat it that way”. I rarely go back to these kinds of places. Both red and white sangria are both good.

I have lived in FTL for 15 years and this was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had. The tapas were great, the best paella’s I have ever had and an unbelievable Spanish tiramisu! The wine was excellent. Joe and Aldo treated us like family and made it a great night!

We had the pleasure of obtaining a reservation at Cafe Seville, a difficult task considering the size and popularity of the establishment. The minute we arrive, the host warmly welcomed us and set us in the bar to await for our table. The waiters and the host checked in with us every few minutes to let us know our table would be ready shortly. The menu offered a variety of dishes and the special board was overwhelming with all the options. The food was very delicious, well seasoned, large portions and moderately priced. Cafe Seville will be a regular stop on our trips to Fort Lauderdale. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!
