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.

You have to go to this bar. You stand at the bar or at round tables on top of barrels. When you place your order, the waiter writes it down on the bar in chalk. Best tapas we tasted in Seville. Excellent choice of sherries and wine. We had jamon iberico which was hand cut with what must have been... More

Stand at the bar. Order a manzanilla. Have some jamon. Admire your surroundings. Didn't have full on dinner here, but on the couple of times I came here during the trip, I loved it. There's a fantastic manzanilla on the list called Sacristia. If you like your manzanilla, ensure you have a glass of this - truly a brilliant wine... More

Fantastic reputation, and oldest bar maybe. But we arrived without a reservation for a meal for 4, at about 21:00. Surly waiter, good value wine, only small (25ml) bottles of water, no fish at all. The duck was the worst we have experienced in a restaurant anywhere, even in UK. Pork was ok, not great. Neighbouring table had the last... More

We were told this is a must visit as it claims to be the oldest tapas bar in Sevilla. The atmosphere is not great and the food ordinary. The waiter was not good. The soup was brought to the table at the same time as the main course and when asked why, we just got a shrug of the shoulders.... More

My wife and I ate a couple of tapas at this restaurant shortly after it opened its doors in the early afternoon. The place was full, and most diners appeared to be local folks. We found our dishes to be nothing special. The service was quick but lacking in friendliness, which the demands of a full house may explain. In... More

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!
