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.
