In a small square just outside the main stream of tourists is this pretty villa which doubles as a restaurant. Period dining rooms indoors and a very pleasant patio outside. We sat in the patio in a wonderful aroma of orange trees. Service was friendly but a bit slow, although there was just one other occupied table. Nicely set tables,... More

Beautiful looking place, dinner ware is high quality. The help are very friendly and polite. But don't be fooled like me, the food is terrible and expensive! We only ate 2 appetizers and 2 glasses of house wine and our bill was E 41.00. The mushroom salad was so salty that we couldn't finish it. The arugula salad was swimming... More

We had dinner on the patio of this charming restaurant in the old quarter. The whole feel was very "home style" even though the restaurant interior looks elegant. The service was excellent. We ate traditional Spanish dishes which were well prepared; tasted like someone's mother was in the kitchen (which is a very good thing)Basque seafood soap and lamb chops... More

Food was so so, that's all that's worth saying about that. They claimed the menu didn't include IVA (VAT), which as far as I know is an illegal practice under Spanish law (as well as EU law). They removed it promptly when I questioned it, but still unacceptable.

Great location, but looks closed for 'renovation'; no signage to indicate future...also, the nearby flamenco showplace is closed and under major reconstruction...also with no explanation signs...maybe later this year...the Plaza de Santa Cruz itself is a scenic location worth at least a stroll-through while roving in beautiful Seville.

Visited this place on Xmas day for dinner. Don't be fooled by the beautiful interiors of this cosy looking restaurant. We ordered the seafood soup for starters. This came as a bland broth with rice in it. Not really up to the quality for a €14 dish. Our drinks had not even been brought to the table at this point... More

A nice restaurant in a pretty secluded street in the old town. The interior looks like an old villa turned into a restaurant The food was good and tasty, like your grandmother used to cook.

The restaurant is nicely suited in the pittoreske Plaza Santa Cruz. Very elegant Andalusian enterior and very good service. Food is high(er) level old school Andalusian style. Very tasty, but not extremely elaborate. Very nice selction of wines, but marking the higher end o what we used to pay in Sevilla. You are not deceived, but there are better choice... More

Set in a very quiet square and in a very splendid old town house, we searched out this restaurant on recommendation for lunch. It was disappointing. The food was passable, but certainly did not rise to the surroundings. This is home cooking trying to be something better. A small point, despite saying it is open at midday, we were unable... More

Next to Los Gallos, we had dinner outside after the Flamenco show. The food was good with excellent service. Very romantic with quiet surrondings.

Situated in the glorious Barrio de Santa Cruz, La Albahaca is elegant and historic. A restaurant with a past, La Albahaca���s building dates back to the 1920s, an era when architecture was grand and gorgeous. So expect original features, none of which have been tampered with to create the graceful setting of this dining room. An impressive central courtyard is surrounded by chic little vintage styled dining rooms in which small groups of people enjoy their food under the dim buzz of conversation. The menu, which has a classical French theme, is equally impressive and just as elegant ��� you���ll be reminded of the kind of dishes fairy tale royalty might enjoy.
