My wife and I have eaten here at least once a month since we discovered the place about a year ago and we just agreed that it is officially our favorite place to eat in Lauderdale. I have never been to a spanish seafood restaurant and still don't really know what makes it 'spanish', but every single thing I have... More

Owner Joey Esposito, former chef of Sage, too over Café Seville in 1998. It's a small, crowded restaurant that is always full, be sure to have a reservation. There's a good size wine list. Although you can find plenty of Spanish Castilian dishes like Tapas and Paella, there are some Italian influenced dishes like Veal Scaloppini with eggplant and mozzarella... More

Someone made a suggestion for us to try this restaurant and I am so glad we did! We did not have reservations but they were able to squeeze us in before their rush. The food and the service is just more than I can put into words. Very authentic! And for dessert, you must try the milk cake. Beer and... More

The paella is simply the best. Two people at our table had the rabbit and loved that dish as well. The service is top notch. I only wish we lived closer so we could enjoy this restaurant more often!

Cafe Seville is one of our favorite spots. My husband and I love the food, but the service is also incredible. We love the traditional Spanish cuisine. This is the only place outside of Spain, that I have been to that has angulas! The real show stopper is the paella. It is just as amazing as the paella I've had... More

If this is only the 28th highest rated restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, I need to eat at the other 27. My meal was absolutely superb and the service matched. From the time I entered the restaurant I thought I was almost family. From meeting the hostess to paying the bill everything was great. The restaurant apparently has a loyal local... More
