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.

Great little eating place

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.

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

We were walking back to our apartment and stopped in to have a drink and tapa. The pork in wine sauce was fantastic as was the quiche. There are so many places to eat in Seville, we wanted to try as many places as possible but we had to go back.

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
