On a visit to Seville we met a local friend for lunch at the Taberna. It's a nice building and the downstairs 'cafeteria' is a reasonable place to eat. The lunch menu at 12 euros is decent value. But the problem is that the food is just not that good. None of the dishes the five of us had was... More

When we sat for lunch with touring friends we had been impressed with the upstairs decor, but found that the traditional provincial menu offerings were not as good as we had experienced elsewhere in Spain, and the wine list was not compelling. Several members of our party preferred not to eat some dishes. Would not return.

We dined here at the "suggestion" of Michelin - it is a red category 4 - really disappointing food - although the service is very nice as is the decor. The food was mediocre at best. We were particularly annoyed that we ordered the traditional menu and got the obviously "inventive" menu = one of my courses was even served... More

We tried Taberna del Alabardero after coming across a recommendation on this site http://www.thespainscoop.com/cafes-in-seville-spain/ and we went there for coffee and cake which was good, so good in fact that we went back the next day following that experience to have lunch. Unfortunately our lunch experience wasn't just bad it was dangerous. We opted for the set lunch for 12.90... More

We ate downstairs, fairly informal dining. Prices a little high for Spain but food was good and plentiful. Wine was not the best, go Cervesa! We would eat there again.

Place run by culinary students so you are basically subject to what happens at the particular time you are eating. We had fun watching them affraid of making mistakes. In a scale of zero to ten our meal was an eight. Go only if you are in a good mood.

Beautiful upstairs a la carte restaurant with high quality food. Not large portions or side dishes: fish with a sauce is exactly that; no vegetables; but food quality is excellent. Taster menu recommended. Desserts are special quality. More expensive than most in Sevilla but a very pleasant experience.

The dinner we had here was very good, and began with an amuse-bouche of pumpkin soup that was excellent. Desserts were also gratis. The setting is formal.

This is a formal restaurant which serves very interesting food. We arrived early at a little after 8:30 pm so the restaurant was very quiet. The dining room is beautifully furnished and is a very elegant setting for what was a most enjoyable meal. The menu is rather small but each of the entrees and main courses we had were... More

Set in a beautiful building with the main dinning room located in a grand room on the 1st floor. The dishes in each course were far too complicated which made it difficult to choose. My partner had a prawn dish which was bland because the ingredients over power each other. I had the Hake as a main dish which was... More
