“Great tapas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Our concierge recommended this place to us for a light lunch, and we really enjoyed it. The tapas were authentic and tasted great, perfect for a hot summer day. The service was a bit slow, but we weren't in a rush, so we weren't bothered. Worth trying!

“Underwhelmed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Maybe it's because my family and I prefer the more modern, lighter cuisine in other restaurants in Seville like Eslava, Vineria San Telmo, La Azotea and Pa Catar but we were distinctly disappointed with Giralda. Whilst the atmosphere of this old institution is nice, the food was unexciting and slathered with heavy sauces which we did not like. Such was our disappointment that we decided to leave after just trying a few dishes and took a long walk and sought out La Brunilda in the Arenal which we enjoyed a lot more.

“Great Tapas close to the Cathedral.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

A wide range of tapas and all very well prepared, unlike most places that have one or two good tapas and a lot for show. The staff is great and the location as well. A good place to rest after seeing the Cathedral in a hot summers day.

“Popular bar for locals and tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

This is a popular bar with locals and tourists, open all day, serving decent food at good prices. The house wine is very nice too. Plenty of seating inside, with some pavement tables too. Nice service.
