I cried. I'm not going to lie, I had tears of joy after eating at Contenedor. The duck with crispy rice... THE DUCK! My goodness. You have to go here, even if it's off the beaten path. Reservations are a must (unless you get lucky like we did and get a spot at the communal table). We came back the... More

Seville has so many great eateries that it takes something really special for a restaurant to stand out and be noticed... and contenedor has it. In spades! Freshly sourced seasonal produce provides the basis. Imaginative ways of preparing and presenting the resulting fare is what comes next. This is followed by attentive, helpful and friendly service. Did I mention attentive?... More

We enjoyed a truly excellent meal at Contendor in May 2014. The restaurant was very casual, fun and eclectic--a nice atmosphere for a long meal. The food is incredibly fresh, based on whatever is available that day in the market. We particularly enjoyed the crispy rice with squid and squid ink, and we still talk about a dish of seared,...

Would recommend this quirky, cool resaurant to anyone, but especially to someone who likes to try something a little different. The flavours they put together are delicious, I have never had a dish that wasn't excellent!

The food was excellent and ingredients fresh. The duck was incredible and possibly one of the best meals I have eaten (just don't tell my Italian mother-in-law!) It was so good we returned a second time. I wouldn't change a thing about this fab place. Bravi!

Loved this place . They sort of do a fusion or something along that line with traditional foods. We had three dishes and all were excellent. We had the hake grilled this came in a butter garlicky sauce with asparagus and beans. Our next dish was lamb cutlets with a cold couscous after that we had the duck confit with... More

Had a great first meal here and an OK second meal. There were not nearly as many fresh vegetarian choices the second time. The best salad - green beans, cheese and tomato - was not available the second dinner. And the grilled vegetables were not nearly as good the second time either. As sourcing is organic, I guess they rely... More

We were in Seville last week to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and were recommended the Contenedor by our hotel. It looked very unpretentious on the outside and not really an 'occasion' venue - but we decided to give it a go. We were really so please that we did - nice informal vibe, great service from people who seemed... More

We went to this restaurant on last night in Seville and we're pleasantly surprised. The menu is on a food board and I am guessing few dishes rotate every day. We had a portion of green salad, salmon tataki, fish of the day and some beef. All of these were good, though the salmon tataki was bit too salty for... More
