Truly excellent spinach and garbanzo beans and also the ratatouille. Both are life-changingly good. The other dishes, not so much.

If You've tried other tapas places in Sevilla and you're not satisfied, this is the place to come even late at night to try some tipical andaluz cusine in small tapas version. Highly recommended. Good price&quality relationship.

Carmella does what it says on the tin. It is a locals bar with a few loud student types. The service is great and the tapas good value. Great for a stop off and a copa de Jerez.

A nice outdoor seating arrangement near Real Alcazar. Seemed to be a mix of locals who knew the staff and tourists just passing through. The tapas was good - as was the Greek salad!

After having a couple of mediocre tapas meals we found this bar and gave it a go. Heaters were provided outside and the staff spoke good English. The menu was in English which gave us an advantage on the many Spanish only menus. We started with Mousaka then had Spinach with chickpeas and egg then the Carmela Tortilla. All hot... More

Good value for money, nice wine and super tasty tapas- especially the croquettes. Tapas costs between 3 and 4 Euro; glass of wine less than 3

We were staying at a hotel nearby with a group of friends and this was a great place to end the evening . Staff welcoming friendly and spoke good English. We even managed to drink them out of their brandy!! Very reasonable compared to the bar next door

Large pour for 4,60€ Tapas were priced very good. We only had the potato omelette and the tomato & cheese (a caprese style version of Tapa) but both tasty. Service is... More

Description
Carmela Bar is opened since 1994, it is an excellent reference to taste TAPAS, an Andalusian tradition.
It is located between the Santa Cruz and La Juderia area, a very distinctive place of the Centre of Seville. This is the perfect place to make a break and sit down in its great terrace near the most important monuments of our city: the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Giralda. It is also located very near La Carboneria, a famous place for live Flamenco music.
