Bar Alfalfa is a cute little tapas place in Plaza Alfalfa. There are definitely a lot of locals who eat there at the normal Spanish dinnertime (9:30-11pm). The tapas were tasty and the prices were quite reasonable. I would definitely go back!

Stepped inside based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff. Don't expect high-cuisine. It's just a bar. But all the food we ordered was very nice. I especially liked the aubergine and the different toasts. Great olives.

This bar was around the corner from our hotel. Turns out they have a 3 Euro breakfast that's awesome (sandwich & coffee). We went back in the evening for tapas and wine which were also great. At both times this place was packed with locals but also friendly and easy.

Really nice bar, you can eat big tapas with 3-5 euro. I ate paella de carne + vaso de guzpacho for 4,40 euros, and all was really good. There are also italian dishes, and the owner is, in fact, italian. To try!

We found Bar Alfalfa fairly late into our first visit to Seville in May 2013 and made sure to go back there several times on our second visit (July 2014), even though we were staying in a different part of the city. There is something special about this tiny corner bar, run by a mother and daughter combo. Their strong... More

Bar Alfalfa is a small, neighborhood bar that my sister found while living in Sevilla. We went there for lunch one day and enjoyed a selection of bruschettas, olives and ham. The menu specials are written on a board and most likely change often with what is in season. Everything was very fresh and well seasoned. It gets quite crowded... More

Of the numerous Tapas places around, we enjoyed Alfalfa so much we went back twice. Friendly, compact place that had a great feel to it, slightly out of the main tourist street near the Cathederal. Staff were always helpful and food original. We even went back for a choice breakfast the next day. Rally enjoyed a simple muesli and yoghut... More

Good mix of traditional Spanish Tapas bar with modern music, good drinks and an international crowd, last stop on every pub night out.

Bar Alfalfa is without doubt the friendliest tapas joint in Seville. Choose between Italian and Spanish snacks while good old Slowhand signs Layla in his sad manner. We had a glass of icecold gazpacho, a plate of queso manchego and some spiced chicken chunks called pinchito pollo. Yummy!

If some place has a positive atmosphere, it must be this little bar/café. It was a rainy morning, and we looked for a good breakfast place. We chose this bar because there were lots of people already in (this is a good way to know that a place is good). Even though the bar was full of local people having... More
