Where to eat in Seville, some restaurants to try

Where to stay in Seville, best Seville apartments and hotels

Puntillitas, fried baby squids

Imagine being surrounded by fascinating architecture that naturally blends Moorish and Christian styles, showing that the collaboration of civilisations always gives the most captivating results. Now match it with great food and an intriguing laid-back vibe and you have the Southern Spanish region of Andalusia.

Andalusia is famous for its scrumptious food, so one of the reasons many people visit is also to try some tapas and traditional dishes.

More than a proper dish, tapas is a way of eating. Spanish love indulging in their after-work social gatherings eating tapas and drinking their aperitif in the wait for the much later dinner. For tourists, on the other hand, is the best way to try different local dishes by sharing many kinds of tapas, instead of ordering one single dish per meal.

As a general reference, in Seville, we have spent between the 18€ and the 25€ for two people per meal.

Extra tip: Take a food tour in Seville to sample local foods and wines for three hours.

For tapas, try Bodeguita Romero (Calle Harinas 10) for great food and wines and La Brunilda (Calle Galera 5) for traditional recipes prepared with a contemporary twist. If you are a fish and seafood lover, head to Cervecería Loli (Mercado de Triana, Stall 24-25), a stall at a popular market that serves great quality food at reasonable prices.

  1. Your foodie posts always make me so hungry. We’ve just watched a series where our favourite TV chef travelled around Spain and the food just looked fab. We’ve had tapas a lot in the UK but it’s just not the same. Would love to try it there. :)
    Julia

  2. MIAM MIAM! J’en mangerai en mars!!!

  3. Dalle foto sembra tutto appetitoso, vedremo nella realtà!!!

  4. Must be real laid back Angela, I see you’re eating the ice cream first, only joking, but it does look like ice cream. On that note, don’t you think you should rough it a bit more, too much good living is bad for you.

  5. Until I saw these photos, I never thought I could be tempted by something like fried baby squid, but it all looks pretty tempting! I agree with Bodlagz’s comment about the first photo looking like ice cream. Ice cream always gets my attention. :)

    • Yeah, it looks like two ice cream balls, but that’s the mayonnese :P Very good though. At the end my cousin always took the dessert and she was very happy with all of them. I would have liked too but I went with toothache and was a bit worried, so I just stuck with espresso for closure :)

  6. Your photos alone are making me hungry! Spain is filled with so much great places to eat and I don’t think I could ever grow hungry there. I love tapas in particular because they’re usually made from local, fresh ingredients. So I’m a little bit discouraged by the first photo where they used “fake” crabs, but I don’t doubt that the Ensaladilla de Gamba was still delicious.

    • True, I, too, at first doubted a little, but it was a shrimp salad not a crab salad, and the shrimps were real, so I guess that was part of the dressing. Besides, anywhere we took it, it was like this, and yes, very good :)

  7. Nom nom! Looks very appetizing, esp. the fish balls and the “ice cream”. Must admit the fried fish looks a little scary though :)

  8. I’m just back from Sevilla, and will be going back in a couple of weeks. I will no doubt try to look up these favourites of yours! Looks delish!

  9. As a huge seafood (especially shellfish!) fan, this post has got me STARVING. I’m not so sure about the fish with the face though ;)

  10. I think I would find it difficult to ever leave Spain.

  11. The shrimp looks yummy! The fish, a little scary! :)

  12. all the food looks absolutely delicious

  13. Yum yum, I can have some of those right now. Fried fish and baby squid look so good.

  14. I never would have guessed that first one was shrimp salad, but it does look very…interesting. Would love to try it though as I’ve never seen anything like it.

  15. Another vote for wariness of fish face food. When I was in Seville I loved the tapas, but not the custom of standing up to eat. After trudging around sight seeing, I wanted to sit. And was not thrilled at having to pay extra for the privilege.

    • lol I don’t know why the fish looks so strange, it kind of looks just a fried fish to me :) We didn’t stand to eat tapas, we grabbed a table, the restaurant where we went was called “Tapas de Sevilla” meaning tapas was their main dish, so everybody was sitting…

  16. We just returned from a similar trip – the three cities you mentioned plus Malaga and Gibraltar. It was incredible and the food… well I’m still dreaming about it!

  17. Awesome pictures of some great tapas! Thanks for sharing your experience with tapas in Seville.
