We enjoyed a brilliant meal here one busy Friday night. It was only 14 euros for two beers and 6 delicious tapas. Best patatas bravas we had in Seville. Get there early and be prepared to squeeze in where you can! No English menu so just be adventurous and try lots of dishes!

No English menu. Get out your Spanish language book and give it a crack. Best calamari Fritos ever. Fun atmosphere. Fast service. Best food ever. Love it.

Fairly boisterous crowds in the evenings! And a unique system of writing bills with chalk on the bar. Lovely tapas, try the calamari, avoid chorizos.

Stayed at the exquisite Hotel Casa 1800 next door so this was our local. The staff were friendly, the vino tinto superb and the tapas even better. Avoid the Spanish clichéd tapas and go for local specialities all written up on blackboards with no English translation. Staff are very friendly. Gave me the name Snr Vino Tinto due to the... More

Stumbled upon this great place whilst in Seville where we stayed for lunch. Great atmosphere where you rub shoulders with business men, locals and fellow travellers alike. Superb tapas from an extensive list all costing 2 euro a piece. Some of the best tapas we ate whilst in Seville for a fraction of the price! We managed to bag a... More

This is the typical place where one wants to go for tapas. Very simple, crowdy and a bit loud and with a huge variety of tapas. Ask the waiters for the tapa of the day or just pick a couple of them chosing randomly from the list on the wall. It won't be easy to stop ordering more tapas! The... More

Favourite place to eat tapas here in Sevilla. Any tapa cost 2€ and there's a lot to choose. I come to this place any time I visit Sevilla.

There is always a crowd at this Bodega, which makes it a great place to hang out and watch the world go by. For daytime beer or a night time glass of wine and tapas. Enjoy!

What can I say this place is awesome. We came for lunch and at first it can look intimidating as it's rough around the edges and it's packed with a loud crowd. Super friendly older bartender guys take your order at the bar and keep a tab for you in chalk. Rustic. We speak barely any Spanish and I told... More

Inexpensive, fast and very tasty. This was in no means a fine dine experience, think dive bar with excellent tapas. The fried hake and pork were excellent and the little sandwiches while simple were delicious. Mostly a local crowd which appeals to me as after wandering around Seville for a while I was over tourist traps.
