The food here ist the best in Sevilla. Was there a couple of times. You get yout food and beer at the bar. The tapas cost 2-3€, the beer 1,20€. You pay at the bar. YOu have to try chick peas and spinach. I love that one

One of the best tapas place in Seville. Don't miss the solomillo al whisky and the manzanilla. A real must in Seville for both locals and tourists.

Stopped by for a drink and a few tapas. Busy all day and night this joint is popular in Santa Cruz! Fun atmosphere but in the middle of tourist central so be aware.

Quite the experience! Sidle up to the bar for cervesa and tapas. The food comes out so fast, is delicious and all in a frenetic atmosphere that makes it great! They write your tab on the bar in chalk! A few minute walk from the Giralda Tower.

My wife and I were recommended to Las Columnas by our host and It was great. We turned up about 7pm think it was a bit early but by the time we had ordered a drink the place was full to the brim with locals. The staff didnt really speak english but they were really nice. You need to try... More

Awesome tapas. Each plate for 2 euros. Great crowd. The guy at the counter was nice to help me with my orders given everything was in Spanish, inspite of being so busy

Very close to the Giralda/Cathedral and surrounded by tourist bars and restaurants (some of which are quite good), but this is pretty much the real deal. The tapas are good, freshly made and inexpensive and there's a great buzz at any time of day. We got a table both time we visited, there's a quick turnover of diners. The menu... More

As others have stated, this is NOT gourmet and it is always packed. This is the real thing---tapas served quickly at the bar or a small table; the staff mark the bar with chalk as your bill; tapas are fresh and as they run out, the chalkboard menu is updated; beer and wine are cheap. We actually ate here 3... More

You´ll never get a seat here as its almost always fuyll of both tourists and locals. In fact, it´s so full most people are standing in the street drinking and eating. The tapas are better than expected, but don´t look for cleanliness. Lots of smokers here.

We came here for dinner - around 9ish. It was already pretty packed with people inside and outside. You order at the bar. We actually stood at the bar and since we did not speak Spanish, the guy just brought us 3 different tapas based on his recommendations. We had 2 beers and 2 tinto de verano and the bill... More
