This is a functional restaurant close to the cathedral with what seems to be a quick turnover of customers. The selection of tapas here was very good, stuffed mushrooms, beautiful squid, very nicely cooked tuna and a pork tapas that was excellent. What lets this venue down is the staff. A more grumpy looking set of individuals I cannot remember... More

In a great neighborhood for both, the tapas were outstanding, the view great. My favorite tapa: roast porkloin with goat cheese and carmelized onion. Service was prompt, prices reasonable.

Food OK but the service was not at all good with a long wait for anything - go over the road to Gago 6

Fabulous oxtail & potatoes and an amazing view of Seville Cathedral from the patio on the cobblestone street! Highly recommend even if just for a tasty espresso, this place has great energy!

Now on our 3rd visit in 2 days, first for a drink then tapas for dinner and today paella for lunch. The atmosphere is brilliant, so lively, so busy, a continuous rush of waiters going too and fro. The white wine is very drinkable and at less than 3 euros a glass within a stone's throw of the cathedral great... More

We had tapas twice here. It was a pleasant surprise after two tourist trap tapas experiences. More than enough choice, speedy service, great taste, fair prices. The stuffed bulls heads, hanging on the walls add just that little extra to the atmosphere.

Very close to the historical center with a little terrace on the walkway we were drawn into the place our first 15 minutes in Sevilla. It was around 13:30 and within the next 30 minutes the restaurant was packed. Waiters fast, multilingual and efficient. Meals arrived in no time. Since we ordered tapas only they, of course, did not arrive... More

Food - 5 Service - 2 We were hungry and went to the restaurant at 2 PM, prime Spanish lunch time, although being a workday, seemed like the patrons around us were tourists. Being next to the Cathedral doesn't help in this case! The food is superb! We got the fried anchovies (large plump anchovies fried to crisp perfection), spinach... More

I went with my friends for dinner after a play. We were hungry, but we were willing to wait. It was busy, but not overflowing with people. We ordered our drinks and looked at the menu, and waited for the server. And waited. And waited. And waited. Eventually we started trying to call the attention of the waiter, and he... More

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.
