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.

As it was my partner's birthday we opted for a sit down meal, so didn't try the actual bar tapas. But if the dishes we had (tapas style starters) are any indication they would be excellent. It's a beautiful place to eat/drink - the tiling, the wood, the hams hanging over the bar - great atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful... More

Classic Andalusian fare in an historic building. Let the servers recommend tapas for you--they know what is good! I highly recommend the espinacas!

We discovered that this is the oldest bar in Seville so went to look and what a find...it became our 'local' for 3 days...great place for a beer or two and glass of sherry and a tapas standing at the bar...waiters great but you need 'restaurant Spanish' to get the best from here...the interior is outstanding and like stepping back...

What a divine little bar. We were happily enjoying a cerveza and tinto de verano when a tour group came in and we discovered we were drinking in one of Europe's oldest bars. The decor is lovely. It's small and quaint but friendly even to foreigners with poor Spanish like us. Apparently the light in the men's turns off by... More

A step back in time complemented by atmosphere, decor, traditional tapas, a tab chalked on the bar etc. We were so taken with the place that we returned for an evening meal and found the upstairs dining room. This was also excellent value for a city centre menu and we would recommend any visitor to el Rinconcillo for a characterful... More

Attractive, popular street corner tapas bar, visited by Rick Stein on his Spanish tour. Has fine half tiled walls and a surprisingly large collection of malt whiskies.
