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.

We stumbled upon this place while wandering back from the train station on the way to our hostel. We thought it was a great place in the sun to sit down and relax for a while, and the 4.5€ breakfast was a great value. For that price, we got a sandwich with fresh ham and tomato purée, orange juice and... More

This bar was opposite our hotel. We were room only so we had breakfast here most days. My wife is coeliac but after we bought some gluten free bread, they were happy to help. Very good value and friendly staff serving a lovely traditional Spanish breakfast.

As this resturant was right opposite our hotel, we had breakfast each morning. Although service did not start until after 9.00am, the food was fresh, hot and good. Pleasant staff and not expensive.

Friends had used the restaurant before and were very enthusiastic about it, we found it to be mediocre and expensive. Four us us shared a cheese platter starter which being cheese you couldn't go wrong with it. My duck was very rare and OH's lamb was bleeding into the potatoes, I did ask for the duck to be taken back... More

It was awesome I had the oxtail lasagne and loved it. The service was good and the staff were nice. Great atmosphere while you're waiting for your food but it's a bit touristy

Very nice tapas diner. We orderd and diner was served a few minutes later. For us it was a little bit to soon if you want to spent more time at the table. But the food was delicious en nearby our hotel (patio de las cruces).

We made our 'first night in town' mistake by going to the first place that looked decent on an empty stomach, Big mistake. This place was awful - I really can't believe all the positive reviews. Some people must be used to eating really bad food. I had a feeling the food wouldn't be good as I'd seen some of... More
