Carmela Bar is opened since 1994, it is an excellent reference to taste TAPAS, an Andalusian tradition. It is located between the Santa Cruz and La Juderia area, a very distinctive place of the Centre of Seville. This is the perfect place to make a break and sit down in its great terrace near the most important monuments of our city: the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Giralda. It is also located very near La Carboneria, a famous place for live Flamenco music.

Lazy Breakfast

This restaurant was tasty for breakfast. The menu didn't have anything speacial on it other than the typical Spanish breakfast dishes. Our waiter was very kind, however the other one was quite grumpy... All in all nice experience.

Carmela was our "go to" place from coffee early in the morning to late night drinks and dining in between. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Food was first class and the drinks great. We would recommend anyone to visit Carmela and enjoy the hospitality and great food. My daughters sadly miss Seville and in particular the great time... More

Great value (light breakfast for two for €10) and hardworking staff - it became our routine to stop there for breakfast during our short stay in Seville. All the staff seem very hardworking (especially in the busy times) and the lady with curly hair in particular went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Try... More

Friendly staff, great tapas. Good breakfast offers including a meal, coffee and fresh orange juice. Great spot for people watching and nice mist sprays to keep you cool if you are there for lunch!

We stayed at the Hotel Fernando III which shared the plaza with Carmela. Somehow after dinner each night we found our way her for drinks, ice cream or a late night snack. For my brother in law who may have Hobbit DNA it was his second dinner spot. Everything we had was good and my wife had to have their... More

Tried several small cafes for light reasonably priced meals and seemed always to come back here. Service attentive and the meals were consistently good

Delicious food and pleasant staff. Good location to pass the time and people watch as you sit outside close to one of the outdoor heaters.

2 eggs, 2 thin small bacon slices, orange juice, accompanied in the bread basket by two tiny 2” wedges of bread (1 each) barely enough with which to clean up the egg, and taking into consideration how inexpensive bread is in Spain. Euro 6.70 per person. The location by a busy thoroughfare of motor vehicles, though appeared to be popular... More

Great little eating place on the edge of the old Jewish quarter of Sevilla (Santa Cruz). Only downside is that it is alongside a road with passing traffic, but the outside tables are set back a bit. Food unpretentious but good value.
