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.

Having done the research, this was a must see for us. On a Sunday about 2 pm it was packed and great atmosphere. Bill recorded in chalk on counter

As the oldest tapas bar in Seville you will not be disappointed here. The atmosphere is off the charts fantastic. If you stand at the bar and order tapas, the bartender keeps track of your order by writing it in chalk on the bar. Pop in for a beer and some tapas, they have a chickpea dish that sounds odd...

I love this place, the first time I was here I was just amazed by how old this place actually is (it's the oldest bar in Sevilla founded in 1670!). The tapas are really good, especially the cheese, the jamon and my favourite tapa, Espinacas con Garbanzos. The waiters are very kind and professional and I am looking forward to... More

El Rinconcillo has been in existence since the middle of the 17th century. We can't speak for the quality of the restaurant in past centuries, but in its current incarnation we found the dining experience flawless. Like most quality Spanish taperias, this one is crowded: a hive of activity, conversation and jovial jostling. But the sound is rarely intrusive as... More

If you are in this area of Sevilla, this is a good choice. We went with a reservation (online) on a Saturday night and it was packed. They had not recorded the reservation in their book but eventually found us a table upstairs. The spinach and garbanzos was a good starter. The other dishes - steak, pork and duck -... More

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...

Particularly enjoyed the salt cod and the tuna.The jamon was melt in the mouth too. Good price and great food/drink. mainly standing though at a barrel or the bar, although there is a restaurant part.... More

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
