We arrived in Seville late on a very hot evening, crying out for a bite to eat and a beer! This little tapas bar in a lovely street just around the corner from our hotel looked inviting so we sat at a high table outside and relaxed with cold beer and quite frankly some of the best tapas we had...

Enjoyed a nice afternoon snack of Jamón, queso, and Rioja. The meat was perfectly sliced and tender. Place was recommended by several locals and did not disappoint. Was interesting to see them prepare the meat. Service was friendly, we shall be back.

Grabbed a gin and tonic and glass of wine early evening before dinner. We sat outside watching the people go by, waiting for our restaurant to open

Ended up in La Alacena after seeing a number of cheaper places. This resto does not look great, but it offers very interesting tapas and they are nice presented as well. We really enjoyed tapas here after a few disappointing meals. Kind waiters, good wines.

It was surprisingly difficult to find truly good tapas restaurants which are not just "tourist tapas" in Sevilla. We were positively surprised to find the very best tapas in a small, pretty modest looking tapas bar just accross the corner from our hotel in the Old Town. We can highly recommend La Alacena for good tapas either for lunch or... More

Cannot fault for some tasty bites and good selection of vino. If in this street would visit again. Seville has so many surprises up its sleeve.

We just flew into Sevilla today and wanted to wander the streets to find a place to eat. We went to a tapas bar that was recommended by the hotel but it was not what we wanted - especially since most of the sandwiches are already made and don't look fresh. I think in the US tapas means small plates... More

This tapas bar was opposite the apartment we stayed in and was a good place to start exploring the food in Seville. All the staff were extremely helpful and explained each menu item and made matching wine suggestions. This bar is part of a store and the produce was fresh.
