This restaurant is in a great location but this is spoilt by poor service and overpriced food. We have eaten far better quality food for a third of the price. I don't expect the staff to grovel but I do expect them to make some effort to make my experience memorable in a good way. Do they care about repeat... More

This restaurant is in a fantastic spot. In a beautiful square with orange trees. That is why I gave it two stars. The quality of the food is poor. We ordered seafood paella for two. The meal was tasteless, and the few bits of seafood in it were dry and stringy. We were given a very dry bread roll each... More

We ate here twice- the service is casual and good. The waiters may seem a bit rough- but they are charming. It's restaurant so go to eat- if it's meal time. They have good sangria and wine. The salads and seafood taste fresh and are nicely presented. Be prepared to have a bit of eye rolling if you are not... More

The venue certainly feels very traditionally Spanish (it must be the stuffed bulls head's and the dangling legs of ham that does it) and is worth a trip just for the setting. I can't go wild about the food, it was ok but not overly imaginative or flavoursome, so don't go with huge expectations. The service was reasonable, I know... More

Its situated in a rather lovely small square behind the cathedral and surrounded by orange trees. Because the square is so pretty there is a fairly constant stream of tour groups passing but we went late in the evening so not a problem for us. In any case the food is excellent (its more of a proper restaurant than merely... More

Just stopped here for a drink. Waiter bought two beers instead of one when ordered, not really a problem, except my wife doesn't drink beer! Again, not a problem as I got to drink it. However, when the waiter returned to ask if we wanted food, he got very annoyed when we said no thank you, just the drink was... More

Had a late lunch here sat out in the square. Had the mixed tapas for two for starter followed by grilled king prawns. The prawns were cooked simply but were lovely. Great location on the square to chill and watch the world go by in between the hectic sightseeing.

We had a couple of meals sitting in the lovely square. The location is truly delightful and the food was very good too. The day´s menu was great value.

Good location and looks attractive so went in for dinner. The service was average and the food poor, especially considering the price. The whole experience was very disappointing indeed. There's no reason to eat here when there are many better options in the immediate area. Not recommended.

We stopped here for lunch during our day of sightseeing around Seville's historic quarter. The food is good, the service is good without being rushed. Remember, this is Seville, not Houston, NY or LA, so service is paced, not rushed. The food tasted almost home made, with good size servings. Definitely a great place for lunch while out and about,... More
