The first thing to note is that there seem to be two parts to Sol y Sombra. When we walked there from the centre of Triana we came first upon what was clearly a restaurant, and clearly shut; we were directed two doors along to the bar, which looked much more atmospheric, much more a local hang-out, although the tourists...

Based on TA's recommandations, we booked a table trough "The Fork" for late diner around 22:30 hours because we went to a Flamenco show before. The restaurant, annex bar was located across the river "Guadalquivir" in the "Triana" neighbourhood and was surrounded by appartement-complexes, so not in touristical area's and for that reason mostely visited by local Sevillians. The interior... More

This restaurant has some of the best local Spanish food. They cook all the typical Spanish dishes and they are splendid! Dishes are served as tapas size, mediocre and the ration serving plate. Great welcome too!

This restaurant is decorated with bullfighting posters and is very old with only a few tables, and larger standup bar. The food we had was good. A local restaurant worth a visit for the experience. Not a fusion food type of restaurant, just your traditional local menu.

This restaurant has some of the best Spanish food you'll find anywhere. They take all the typical Spanish dishes and make the great. Some dishes you can only order as a ration or Medio ration, but really if it's that much you will want that much. It's really good food. Lacks alittle on seating also but it's an experience to...

Eat great tapas surrounded by one of the best collections of bullfighting posters. Very friendly staff will guide you trough the best the season has to offer. Very affordable prices.

Large portions of tasty food at very affordable prices. Traditional Andalusian food. Peculiar atmosphere, bullfight posters in the walls, toilet paper as tissue, ... fun overall in my opinion. Suboptimal location, in an otherwise dull corner of the Triana area. Polite staff, though on the unfriendly side.

Lovely tapas. Staff reluctant to let us in at 1.00 when it was meant to be open as advertised. It was in the middle of a storm. 10 minutes they said. Got in eventually, having got soaked. Great food. Surly staff.
