Great little bar with a small but very good menu. The tapas I ordered was so delicious. Unfortunately we were in a rush or I would have stayed longer but really liked it and it's fantastic value. Walked past every day and was always busy which isn't surprising as it's a great spot.

Charming little spot on the corner of the street. All of the tapas is excellent, you can't go wrong with any of them. The paella here is the best I've ever had in Spain. You may have to wait a bit to sit down at a table/bar but it's worth it!

Good tapas, wines and beers. Staff very warm and friendly, we used it as our local and called in every night for our last couple of drinks and some more tapas if we were feeling greedy.

We were staying over the road so invariably ended up here for a couple of drinks before turning in for the night most nights. Very, very friendly little (actually tiny!) bar with great prices. We didn't eat there but from what we could see the food was really good too, confirmed by the number of locals who went there.

This is a tiny space so be prepared to stand and enjoy, but the food is really good. We tried the paella and the barrata du trufa.

My boyfriend and I have a soft spot for Bar Alfafa. We'd eaten a few places in Sevilla before we found it and we could not have had a better dinner! From the truffled mortadella to the unbeatable spanish red sangria, Bar Alfafa is where its at! The bar is a trendy local's spot and so cozy. You'll see many... More

Looking for somewhere to eat in Seville we came to Bar Alfalfa by accident , no chairs outside but once inside the cooling air con was great . Had a jug of Sangria made with real fruit which tasted great. We didn't know what tapas to choose so we left it to the lady behind the bar who spoke good... More

Don't let the crowded environment scare you away, just squeeze your way in, order a bunch of tapas and keep it coming! The crowd loves this place for a reason, it's not just the hype, the food is reaaaaally good. My family cozied up to a few side-tables and took the tapas as they came, and they came at lightning...

Well worth a visit. The food we had was ok, nothing special, but then we only had a couple of tapas. Seems really popular with locals which is always a really good sign!
