Our fav was asparagus soup (who would’ve thought?)! It was a little cold tonight, so I thought soup would be nice. Turned out it was wonderfully delicious! We also had a grilled octopus. It was tasty! Go for it!

The meals are distinctive for the expertise in preparation and the food quality and diversity. Staff are attentive and friendly and we were amazed at the creativity of the menu. Some less common meals and typically surprising. You will comeback every day. Quiet and not rushed with excellent wines. Great value with low to moderate prices. A winner!

Al Aljibe was recommended by several people from our hotel, so on our last night in Seville we decided to eat here. They have a patio and we choose to sit outside. We feasted on rucula risotto, a very flavorful salmon tapa and a tapa of Iberian pork slider. But the star was the shrimp burger with a quail egg. We wished we had ordered 100's of those shrimp burgers!! Our dessert arrived, along with a huge thunderstorm. We ran inside and set ourselves up next to the bar in the back. The carrot cake was just wonderful, the coffee divine and the PX was out of this world. After all this and chatting with the servers, the bartender delivered limoncello. We waited out the storm in a blissful fog and ran back to our hotel when the rain stopped. Highly recommend!!
TRAVEL NOTE: For all of you travelers, wait staff are not unfriendly, rude or inattentive. The culture they grew up in doesn't include small talk or smiling at strangers. Be friendly and interested and they begin to warm up and smile.

This is a very good restaurant that serves delicious tapas. It is full most of the time because locals and tourists alike love this place. Down home atmosphere with seating inside and outside. Excellent service and nice people.

This place on the lovely Plaza Alameda de Hercules seems be recommended by hotels nearby and airbnb hosts. The food was fine but it was nothing impressive (what is now common in many restaurants across the world as small plates do not tapas make) - there are better Seville establishments in the center. But if you're after food presentation - dash of balsamic art, splash of red pepper puree - a spray of sauce, sure, the food will taste better - if only visually. However, while all the tables were being served rapidly - we kept waiting for our food which was dragging on and terribly slow. We were only on dish no. 2 when other diners already finished their main meals and were ordering dessert. It wasn't the order or that we asked for anything specific or gluten-free or dietary - so what could it be while we watched table after table ordering extra food and being served almost immediately in minutes. It dawned on us that we were the only mixed-race couple there in the room, and we couldn't helped noticing being singled out for slow reluctant service. We frequent a lot of restaurants around the world and we're not fussy people but we know when we're being subjected to unfriendly service. It made for an unpleasant meal and terrible experience. The one star is for the food - but there are better places in Seville to eat.
