Very close to the historical center with a little terrace on the walkway we were drawn into the place our first 15 minutes in Sevilla. It was around 13:30 and within the next 30 minutes the restaurant was packed. Waiters fast, multilingual and efficient. Meals arrived in no time. Since we ordered tapas only they, of course, did not arrive... More

Food - 5 Service - 2 We were hungry and went to the restaurant at 2 PM, prime Spanish lunch time, although being a workday, seemed like the patrons around us were tourists. Being next to the Cathedral doesn't help in this case! The food is superb! We got the fried anchovies (large plump anchovies fried to crisp perfection), spinach... More

I went with my friends for dinner after a play. We were hungry, but we were willing to wait. It was busy, but not overflowing with people. We ordered our drinks and looked at the menu, and waited for the server. And waited. And waited. And waited. Eventually we started trying to call the attention of the waiter, and he... More

In the shadow of the Giralda so you wonder whether this is not a tourist trap. It is not. Thanks to TA reviews we stepped in and had one of our best restaurant experiences in Spain, also considering price. White housewine was a tasty Verdeje. Tasty tapas almost have the size of raciones. The paella for two was gorgeous. A... More

Had reasonably good tapas for lunch. Service efficient but not overly warm. Convenient stop near to the cathedral.

We chose this place because they had an awning outside so that we could eat without getting leaves/petals on our food from the flowering trees. This is near the Cathedral on a street lined with restaurants so we didn't have great expectations. We were pleasantly surprised! We ordered the octopus, croquettes, aubergine millefeuille, stuffed mushrooms and calamari. Everything was good... More

Loved all we ate here and the place is fun & ideal for tapas and raciones. Fabulous croquetas, huevos rotos, salmorejo, calamares, etc. Bullfighting ambiance & decor. Great location one block from the Cathedral plaza at the entrance of the charming Santa Cruz neighborhood.

This is the second restaurant we ate at in Seville and my partner liked it much more than the food we had in a restaurant on the same street. The portions were rather large and we found a corner table in a rather busy place, especially with people seating outside. What I found strange was the waiters, all male, did... More

This place is buzzing and we had a table outside. The waiter was lovely and when we asked for Paella he immediately explained that there would be a 20 minute wait. We ordered a lovely house salad with feta and orange, to see us through. The paella, when it came, was delicious and well worth the wait. Great little place.

We went to this restaurant by chance and were delighted by the quality of the tapas in the heart of the tourist area. We would especially recommend the aubergine and goats cheese and also the house white wine

We offer the warmth of traditional with a touch of personality in our tapas, in a room decorated with bullfighting elements, with wood finishes. Our Parisian style lamps permeate everything with a cozy light, especially at dinner. Do you prefer private company? You can enjoy in our second floor with a unique perspective to the main room. We also have tables on the street where enjoy incredible views of La Giralda. Moreover if you prefer to drink more informally, you may do in our noble wood and marble bar.
