The best tapas bars and restaurants in Seville, Spain

Restaurant tableSeville, the capital of Andalusia, the southern region of Spain, is a great destination. Perfect for city breaks, romantic and cosy, one of the main features of Seville is the gastronomy. A good example of the excellent Spanish cuisine is found here, especially the most famous tradition, the tapas. Hundreds of bars around the city show the way locals live, where street life is a must (due to the good weather) and way of being of the “Sevillanos”.  Here is a small selection of tapas bars and restaurants not to be missed:

Tapas bars:

  • GORKI. Almirante Lobo st. Quick service, excellent wines and outdoor tables.
  • CASABLANCA. Ave. Constitución, in front of the tourist office. Great variety and local atmosphere. Try their duck foie with some Spanish Ribera wine.
  • LAS GOLONDRINAS. Antillano Campos, 26. In the Triana district, cosy place with typical Andalusian tiles in the walls. All their tapas are excellent.
  • LAS TERESAS. Ximenez de Enciso st. In the heart of Santa Cruz district, very good white wines and typical decoration. Great white wines.
  • EL RINCONCILLO. Gerona, 40. Founded in 1670. A must for anyone searching for the roots of the city in the oldest bar in town
  • LA HABICHUELA. Ventura de la Vega St. In the modern part of the city, a local bar with surprising tapas and dishes. Try the presa iberica for a good sample.


  • SAN FERNANDO 27  – Modern cuisine, great atmosphere and service, the new Seville is to be found here.
  • BECERRITA  – Tapas bar with restaurant inside. A great example of a typical Sevillian gastronomy.
  • SEVRUGA  – A little gem just 20 minutes outside Seville. Cosy, modern and excellent tapas and cuisine.
  • ROBLES Placentines, 2  – By the cathedral, one of the most famous places in town. Excellent service mixed with local tapas and comfortable rooms.
  • AZ-ZAIT  – Plaza San Lorenzo, 1 Cosy atmosphere, excellent cuisine for a hidden secret place in Seville.

Just follow the not-written rules: in tapas bars, have a wine with one or two tapas, stay at the counter and mingle with the locals, then head for another bar. In restaurants, don’t book before 9.30pm or you will be the only one in the restaurant. In Rome, do as Romans do.
