We had a very good experience here. Interesting, and very tasty tapas such as marinated prawns in katafi pastry and delicious grilled squid in an unpronounceable sauce. Do not missed the fried cheese which may sound simple but gives you a crisp outside and wonderful molten inside (beware you don't burn). Also, and very good at 39 degrees centigrade, the... More

Stumbled across this cafe while walking around the old town, and I'm so glad I did, what a gem. The servers are fantastic, the menu was great with lots of choices and the food ..... Amazing. Some of the best tapas I've had, and I've travelled a lot in Spain. We ate here twice, once for lunch and once in... More

We had our last meal in Seville here and how I wish I had found it earlier! Ok, service was mixed...one of the servers was friendly and efficient and full of smiles while the other was taciturn, slow and...well....not really into customers. Food was fantastic. We sat down outside and I loved the variety of tapas in the menu...so much... More

There are tons is places offering Tapas in this area and everyone of them have TA certificate.. So where do you eat? The difference this place had is in preparation - particularly hot tapas. Try any them.. They are cleanly and meticulously prepared. Location is a plus. Recommended. Rating doesn't so justice to this place..

We found this wonderful place just across from our hotel. A diverse selection of tapas and some good wines to go with them. I loved the grilled squid and my wife the grilled sirloin with potatoes and mojo sauce. Also be sure to try the chick peas with spinach and a fried egg on top. Four dishes were enough for... More

Just returned from a weekend in Seville and ate in Carmela a few times-lovely tapas that are a bit different from the norm-we had mini burgers, black ink squid with rice, goats cheese with berries to name a few -as well as tasting fantastic the food and drinks are very good value too and staff were really nice and friendly...

This looks like any other tapas place, but it isn't. It's better. The food is simply better--more creative and more delicious. It became our go-to place in Seville, for any meal at any time of day. Try the hamburgesitas. They are a hearty little plate, perfect for Americans, but still Spanish. It's not a dish you would get in Cleveland!

My DH, DD and I had our last dinner in Seville at Carmela. Had not all 6 tapas been delicious as well as dessert, perhaps I wouldn't rate this a 5 star. But everything was terrific and well prepared. We started with a crepe of melted goat cheese and blueberry jam/sauce on top. We then had a number of other... More

We were happy with the food but it took forever to get the waiters attention. We got drinks and then asked for the menu. One guess is when you ask for the menu you are going to order food. But do you think we could get the attention of the waiter. There were only 3 tables frequented but after waving... More
