Best tapas bars and restaurants in Sevilla, Spain

The best tapas and restaurants in Sevilla according to locals

Going for tapas is the most way common to dine in Seville. With over 4,000 tapas bars in the city, it’s no surprise. Tapas are cheap (between 1.50€ and 4€) and it’s common to see people sharing a ‘ración’ (plate) or a ‘media ración’ of one dish. While traditional tapas reign supreme, new international influences and vegetarian fusion have become very popular.


Los Coloniales

Try to get your name on the chalk board and hope for a table. The place is popular so don’t be discouraged by the line. Just grab a drink at the bar while you wait. Very cheap and very good, it’s no wonder the place is usually packed.

 

2 de Mayo

A very famous tapas bar in Sevilla. Take a seat if you like, but you’ll have to order at the bar! We recommend you try the “brochetta de rape” – it’s love on a stick: meats and veggies grilled to perfection with a mouth-watering blend of spices and sauces.

 

Bodega de Santa Cruz

Actually, people will know it as “Las Columnas” because it has two big columns outside. Whatever they call it, we just call it good. Really good.

 

El Rinconcillo

Easily one of the oldest tapas bars in all of Seville. Tapas recipes that have been served up since the 16th century: very good spinach tortillas, amazing fried sea anemones (seriously), and huge olives. just to name a few.

 

La Bodega

All shellfish is delicious here. Try the “montadito de gambas” (shrimps). Sit and watch Spanish life stroll by.

 

La Plazoleta

The perfect place to go in a sunny afternoon. Just ask for a “tinto de verano” and chill at the terrace.

Tapas aren’t everything. Well…not to everyone, anyway. Sure it’s more common to go for tapas, but if you want a well orchestrated, full meal, there are a number of restaurants around the city that would love to accommodate you. Markets, as well, can provide you with fresh ingredients if you prefer to cook for yourself.


La Judería

Located in the heart of the old Jewish quarter, this typical Andalucían restaurant serves up a wide variety of both provincial and national delicacies all made with fresh ingredients from all over Spain. Fish, shellfish, and cured hams are brought from Huelva, meats sourced in Avila, peppered lamb from Castile, anchovies from the north coast, and oxtail stew from Seville. The homemade desserts add a final sweet touch to your meal.

Casa Robles

With over 100 diverse main dishes, 40 inventive desserts, 11 private dining rooms, and two spacious public dining rooms to choose from, this place is nearly a landmark. Only the freshest produce is used and the meats are all sourced from Spanish cities. Desserts, like the nougat and praline ice cream are sublime and the extensive wine list would please even the most discerning connoisseur.

 

El Rinconcillo

Great food in a charming and historic location. Mentioned in the Tapas section, but this place also serves a menu at a fixed price of 25€ to 45€.

Las Macetas in Triana

Specializing in generously portioned meats and sandwiches, the food here is simple, unfettered, and ultimately satisfying.

 

Fish & Fruit Market

This is the oldest market in Seville and always an interesting stop, regardless of whether or not your looking to buy. If you are, then this is the best place to find fresh seafood and local produce.

Best museums, culture, and art in Seville Spain

Museums

You’re in Seville, historically and culturally rich. It would be a shame to move on without absorbing some of the fascinating legacy that has made the city such a popular destination for travellers. Soak up some culture at any of the city’s abundant museums and monuments.


Museo Bellas Artes

Some say that this is the 2nd finest art museum in Spain, after the Prado in Madrid. Make up your mind for yourself in Plaza del Museo 9, next to Alfonso XII. And check out the art market next to the Fine Arts Museum on Sunday mornings.

Museo del Baile Flamenco

A great museum to explore before seeing a flamenco show. Exhibits cover several rooms and include audio-visual and multi-media displays explaining the history, culture and soul of traditional Flamenco.

 

El Salvador Church

During the five years that this church was closed, they discovered the ruins of the original main mosque of Seville as well as several well-preserved tombs from the Christian era.

Archivo de Indias

The Archive of the Indies has been the main archive of Spain’s American empire since 1785. Its 8km of shelves hold 80 million pages of documents dating from 1492 through to the end of the empire in the 19th century.

 

Museo Arqueológico

At the end of Parque Maria Luisa you will find a smart collection of tartessos culture and a fine collection of Iberian animal sculptures and beautiful Roman mosaics.
