Description: 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.

When you read all of the guide books and online reviews, Seville doesn’t really start going out for dinner until well after 9pm. This is certainly true.

Every bar we had walked past at around 8.45pm was totally empty - quite intimidating to go into and devoid of any atmosphere.

It was great to find this place jam packed full of people: Spanish people, tourists, couples and students all together, with waiting staff who were happy to help you find a table or a place at the bar without giving you any hard sell.

Order a couple of drinks, while you have a look through a menu (they’ll provide you with a menu most appropriate to the language you speak).

You can order by the tapa (a small bite sized plate with enough for 2 people to snack on), or a ración (twice as much if you’re just wanting a meal rather than small portions).

If you want to try something else, they’ll return with a menu and you can pick more.

There’s the option of picos - tiny bread sticks to nibble at while you wait, and olives. The olives are delicious, but highly salted and will encourage you to drink more.

The range of food is very comprehensive, very Andalucían, freshly prepared, well presented and hot. It will be delivered in the order that it’s ready.

Outrageously good value - we had a few drinks, 6 tapas, bread, olives, paid tax and service charge for less than €22.

As this is southern Spain, and the home of corrida de toros, flamenco and sherry, you should expect all of these to be piled higher than an ice cream sundae.

Excellent.

A busy place, which is bigger than most, with bull heads and bullfighting posters around the walls. The food was great, and very reasonably priced. Service is manic, but friendly, and they have English menus which is a bonus.

We had a selection of tapas, including vegetable, and all were good although the solimillo was a little pink for some tastes. Good atmosphere and toilets.

We were staying close by in the El Rey Moro hotel so went here one evening for food, as it was very popular. Interior is nice, and has lots of bulls heads on the wall. The food was great, had pork cheeks and a platter of mixed croquettes which were divine. Service was a little disorganised but we were taking our time so didn't matter. I'd recommend this place.

We came across this place by chance but it was the most pleasant surprise of our trip. The oxtail, the sirloin with whiskey and the stuffed mushroom was out of this world! Highly recommended!!!!!
