Great courtyard and outside space on the alameda. Lots of choice on the menu and we were very happy with everything we ordered. The pork and the langoustine burger were our favourite. Would definitely go back. Service a bit slow and we waited ages for the food once we ordered.

Referred by an acquaintance who lived in Sevilla, this was a great find. Scored a courtyard table - shaded yet open air - and settled in for a tapas fest. 4 of us had 8 tapas. Tuna tartare amazing, also the grilled vegetables (seemingly a rarity in Spain) and the burrata salad. All were excellent and beautifully composed, service friendly... More

First ate here last year as we were staying in the area. Returned this year with my daughter and she loved it well, especially the carrot soup, which was delicious. Risotto was as good as I remembered. Roll on next year.

Among the best tapas experience in Spain, bacalao frito was amazing and also the pulpo. Everything very fresh. Sauces were great too. Not overpowering, just right. This is a notch above the typical tapas place.

On arrival in Seville we needed some lunch and the concierge at our hotel (on Almeda de Hercules) recommended Al Aljibe - just across the road. For some reason I expected, in such a tourist location, to be disappointed, but we were blown away. We sat in the sun and ate some of the best bacalao of our visit, and... More

Superb tapas menu to choose from and each dish was presented so wonderfully we had 5 dishes for 2 of us - and that is enough Its not fine dining and the service could be more professional - but the food and the atmosphere is superb We ate here twice in three nights!

We found this nice place walking around and we saw a beautiful indoor terrace and and a nice menu. We decided to give it a try and i'm glad we did. We ordered a jug of sangria, couple of beers, 6 tapas coffee and desert. All the tapas were very nice, tasty and well presented. The black pudding croquetas were... More

The style of food here was more refined than other typical tapas restaurants we have been to. And the prices are a bit higher, but not overly extortionate. The Shrimp burger was the best thing we had, with the special iberico pork a close second. The duck and apple risotto was really different and tasty. We also had the tuna... More

We enjoyed all the tapas we took and thought it was very good value for money. The staff was also very friendly and ready to serve us in English (as we don't speak Spanish). The best restaurant we visited in Sevilla, so highly recommended!
