Description: Located on the Calle Gerona, El Rinconcillo has been serving up Spanish cuisine in Seville since 1760. This historic restaurant boasts a rustic-chic dining room that is dressed up in cosmopolitan clothes. With understated whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, chandeliers and fresh flower arrangements, El Rinconcillo attracts everybody from local celebrities to families who come to enjoy traditional tapas and Sunday meals, and the mosaic-tiled bar with wine barrel tables is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and mid-afternoon glasses of wine. The menu is an eclectic collection of tapas dishes, stews, seafood, meat and sweet flans for dessert, and you couldn���t find a more quintessentially Spanish eatery in Seville if you tried.

Tapas where ok, not the best but would go back to try more, very nice typical Seville bar, also place to sit but we had our tapas at their cosy bar. The service was professional, friendly, gentle and kindly.

After learning about the history of this place we really wanted to go! It's been going since 1670 and it really does look the part. We didn't really know what to do so we wandered towards the back were the restaurant area, where we were greeted by a very friendly waiter who spoke good English. The restaurant just seems to...

Highly recommended, well-located, great daytime bar scene in this atmospheric, oldest (1650) bar in Sevilla. Our mistake might have been in choosing to sit for lunch, but it was difficult to get attention from the waiter. The spinach and chick pea dish was fantastic, and served hot. Arroz Chacinero had lovely seasoning from tiny chunks of ham and sausage, barely... More

This was such a great bar - good old fashioned service. They chalk your bar tab on the bar in front of you and, when you pay, and leave, they just wipe it off ready for the next person. Brilliant system. We also ate here on a Sunday evening - we are asked how late the kitchen stayed open, thinking... More

The owner of the apartment we rented recommended El Rinconcillo for lunch. We were taking a break from our tour of the Alcazar and headed out for tapas. We had heard their spinach and garbanzo bean tapa was not to be missed - the best we had in Seville. We also tried the grilled pork sirloin and the pork cheeks... More

Apparently one of the oldest Tapas bars in Sevile - do not leave without having a quick tapas or two at lunchtime. The pigs cheeks are to die for

I was going to find another tapas bar but I was lost and El Rinconcillo was just right opposite me. I've read about it before so I decided to give it a try. The tapas was delicious, good atmosphere and crowd. And I couldn't believe I've stepped into one of the oldest tapas bar in Sevilla. Would really love to... More

We had tapas here (we booked as a group and requested it) and I would thoroughly recommend it. Important to know - they serve tapas at the bar only, not at the tables. This place was first opened in 1670. THAT IS A REALLY LONG TIME AGO.
