Description: Just across the river from the Jardines del Guadalquivir you'll find Casa Manolo Leon, a regal restaurant with a smart feel. Set within an elegant and historic Andalusian house dating back to the 19th century you can expect a wonderful dining experience from start to finish. Inside dining rooms are carefully decorated, one might be the perfect aqua of a Tiffany gift box, another boldly striped in gold and cream, antique pieces complete the look ��� you really could be in another time entirely. During warm summer evenings candles flicker throughout a gorgeous Mediterranean courtyard, the ideal place to enjoy tasty and fresh traditional Spanish food, especially fish and seafood from nearby Huelva.

We went on our last night in Seville and ate in the garden courtyard. What a fantastic setting! The food and wine were OK, but lacked the X-factor and the bill was over twice that for any other meal we had eaten in the City.

We were recommended this restaurant by the wonderful young lady at Sevitur Apartamentos del Museo. We arrived about 3:00 p.m. to find the garden completely full, so we were the first to be seated in the very nice and intimate dining room. As we were the only ones in the dining room, I joked to my wife that they probably... More

This restaurant is in the top category of Sevilla restaurants. They have an extremely beautiful inside terrace that is great for dining outside when weather permits. But also inside a nice Spanish ambience. The food is mainly Andalucian style with some exceptions such as the asparagus with raw tuna. Specialties that I greatly enjoyed were the calf neck with a...

This is the most difficult review I've ever had to give...here's why...I like the look of this restaurant, the interior is outstanding. The patio is magical. The outrageously camp owner/Maître d'hôtel is fun. Okay, so far so good...the food....well it looked good on the plate but my fish was overcooked and frankly the meal had little flavour...and I wasn't alone... More

A group of us from a Cosmos Tour thoroughly enjoyed the ambieance, attention to detail, and especially the food at this wonderful place that is hidden in an industrial area where mostly locals know. It's definitely a place we'd go to again.

Quietly located in the Guadalquivir Calle you would not find it if you would not know the address. It is a secret and mostly frequented by Sevillians for special occasions... The interior is breathtaking. Inside an old Sevillian House with a brilliant Patio it offers in the warm seasons tables outside in the Patio Garden. The cuisine is top class... More

We were in Seville last September and went to Manolo following Tripadvisor previous reviews. The restaurant has a lovely garden which, unfortunately was reserved for a private party, so we could nor seat outside. The restaurant is very elegant and the service excellent. Manolo is a lovely and lively host :) We really enjoyed talking to him and gladly followed... More

One of the attractions of this restaurant is the large patio where you can have lunch. This is a very pleasant place to eat. My wife and I ate there with a friend. We had an appetizer of artichokes. Then my wife and I ordered the bacalao while our friend ordered the bean stew. We also had dessert and wine.... More
