Located adjacent to the Hotel Don Paco, we had an excellent meal. Several of our Riviera Travel tour members ate here too and my observation whilst sitting there was that the menu seemed to confuse a few of them. We had drinks and 5 tapas between us and enjoyed the atmosphere and food.

We visited there in early June and sat down for what was supposed to be a pre-dinner snack. We ended up coming back another day for a full meal. The chicken skewer, among other items, was excellent

Catalina is highly recommended by guide books but I wasn't thoroughly impressed. We were able to sit inside quickly with no problem which was nice. We got served right away upon ordering but the food was only so-so. There were 5 of us so we tried quite a few dishes and I wasn't blown away by any of them. I... More

Brilliant bar, dined twice on a recent visit, really good both times - and we're picky people. Each tapas we had was delicious and we order a variety of them off the menu as we were really hungry. Its very much a café not a restaurant but the service is really friendly and very quick. Great wines and bottle on... More

Can't believe the high rating for this place. All the food was pre-made -- not prepared to order. No real thought given to the sauces here and they use Frozen spinach instead of fresh....? The food is edible but not worthy of more than an "average" rating.

We had lunch there. The waitress was kind and nice, but sadly, we were there to eat and not to chat. Food wasn't really bad, but it wasn't good either. Avoid the lemon desert, you will only get poorer after eating it.

The location is excellent, very tasty tapas! Going down from the room to the bar, I was disappointed. There were no vacant seats. I had to wait at the bar until a table cleared. The place is very popular among the Spaniards. The dishes are very tasty, white wine is not bad. The waiters are pleasant and full of fun.... More

The quality and selection of both the tapas and wines was very good, especially the wines. The service was good, interior design tasteful and the atmosphere lively and pleasant. Ask for tapas and sit in the front room (bar area) or terrace for best atmosphere. I.e. not the typical tourist filled restaurant area in the back. Best to visit mid/late... More

We came here on Friday night of Semana Santa and had eaten at Vineria San Telmo, La Azotea, and Eslava among other spots and feel service was attentive but food was ok but not great .. .. we had pelli de verduras, choco planca, arroz boletus, and pluma iberica. The food was fine but not spectacular.. ..

We dined at Catalina Bar De Tapas on our final night in Sevilla. What a great way to cap our visit. We arrived at the restaurant at about 8:30 on a Friday evening. Only one table outside had any diners, so we were seated immediately. But within 5 minutes every outside table was occupied with a blend of locals and... More
