I will not discover anything by stating that in Seville you eat very well and perhaps the same gastronomy of the city is one of the main attractions to visit it.

The city center is full of bars, bars and restaurants where you can eat good dishes and tapas of all kinds of quality, service and disparate prices depending on the establishment you visit. However, saving some exception, the average quality and price you will find in most restaurants is enviable for many of those who visit the city and do not live in Seville.

We stayed for five days in the Andalusian capital and ate in different places. On some occasions we chose the restaurant because they had recommended it to us but in most cases we entered because we were hungry and the place at first sight was worth a visit.

Next goes a list of the different restaurants and bars where we ate tapas or dishes in Seville during our five day trip:

Doña Elvira Restaurant (Santa Cruz)

Bulltail and assorted fish

On weekends with a bridge it is not easy to find in the Sevillian neighborhood of Santa Cruz A free table on the terraces. That is what happened to us during the bridge of all the saints and we had to take a few turns around the area until we finally decided on the one with the English menu. I always avoid those places since we will usually find a menu with rising prices, the dishes are going to be rather scarce and the quality is pulling to standard. This is not always the case, of course, but I always try to find a more authentic place close to the place I am treading on.

Even so, after a few laps, we ended up sitting on the only terrace we saw free. Its about Doña Elvira restaurant in the beautiful square that bears the same name. After shuffling the available menus and the letter we chose to make a combination of menu (two dishes, drink and dessert at 14 euros) and menu.

To highlight the oxtail offered in the letter at 18 euros. Pulling expensive but abundant, with a great sauce and stewed meat.

The total came out for 53 euros and, after enjoying lunch, I gladly rectified my initial misgivings.

Sierra De Sevilla (Cathedral Area)

It is located on Joaquin Guichot Street and we find it by chance trying to escape from the most touristy streets that surround the Cathedral. It was a surprise and upon entering we were welcomed by a smiling pig who already announced how good the house ham would be.

We enjoy a good assortment of dishes on the terrace. However, it should be borne in mind that tapas are only served indoors and only rations are served on the terrace. We preferred to be on the terrace and that reduced the gastronomic offer that we were going to zamparnos since the dishes were going to be larger and more expensive.

To highlight the pork chops, ham, squid and olives. Good quality and service. The average price of the area at about 15 euros per head.

Cuesta House (Triana neighborhood)
