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

We ate at Contendor on the recommendation of our hotel and we weren't disappointed. This is a lovely restaurant using fresh ingredients and everything we ordered was really tasty. My husband had the black rice with squid which was delicious with the squid sat on top of the rice. It was perfectly cooked. I had the lamb with aubergine and... More

It was our first trip to Seville and we were enjoying every meal - we were there Easter and the whole Seville experience was wondrous and amazing. We stumbled across this restaurant (contendor) quite by accident and we are so glad we did. Quirky decor, colourful, views into the kitchen - just what we like. Sometimes the words "best quality...

This cool, funky restaurant served beautiful modern Spanish cuisine, well presented and very tasty. The staff were excellent, friendly and so helpfully. We can't wait to return and would highly recommend.

I had this restaurant on my long list of restaurants in the neighborhood we were staying in in Seville, and I'm so glad we happened to try it for lunch: the food and ambiance were so good that we returned later for dinner! After all of the typical tapas we'd been eating, it was a wonderful change: although keeping some... More

We had high expectations of this restaurant due to the fantastic reviews already posted here and were not disappointed. The staff were excellent: from our waitress patiently describing every dish on the board to us to the Maitress D' keeping an eagle eye out for our bill request at the end of our meal. I had the duck with crispy... More
