Calle Sta. Teresa, 2, 41004 Sevilla, Spain
One of the oldest taverns right in the heart of Seville, apparently founded in 1870, this fabulously traditional neighbourhood restaurant is steeped with atmosphere, original paintings and beautiful hand painted mosaic tiles is found in the adorable lanes of the Santa Cruz area of the city and is a place that just keeps on giving and giving.
A great tapas menu with enormous choice, such as local hams hanging from the bar, salchichón ibérico (sausage), giant white beans, crunchy fresh salads (numerous choices) a wide selection of tasty cheeses, fresh squid, paella, meat balls, fried bacalao (salted cod) & freshly baked bread and plenty of beers & local wines to wash it all down.
You can even select the same dishes in either small, medium or large portions which is really handy and if you go small you can just wade through the menu trying everything until you are finally full, just wonderful.
Great helpful service, quick buzzy atmosphere and oodles of highly traditional charm. Not to be missed for the pure Sevillian experience.
