“Top 20 hit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Of the hundreds of places to eat in this magnificent city, Catalina deserves to be up there with the best! Wonderful imaginative tapas with a twist, reasonably priced and excellent white wine (Navamonte) and charming attentive service. On one of our three visits we were the only tourists. Oh and we were in Sevile for less than 48 hours. Try it!

“A consistent and pleasant dining experience in Spain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This restaurant was exactly what you want eating in Spain to be every time: good tapas with nice variety that aren't all fried at a reasonable price with friendly service. Our first 6 tapas all came in a timely fashion but then the 7th didn't arrive for maybe another 20-30 minutes, leaving us to wonder if it had been forgotten because it wasn't any more time-consuming to prepare than the others. Regardless, if you're looking for a pleasant meal while in Seville, this would be a safe place to eat.

“Excellent well presented tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very good and original tapas. Some examples: gazpacho served with cucumber ice cream, fried cheese served with tomato jam. Excellent, a pleasure for my mouth. Very kind staff. They serve Alhambra beer, sweeter than the more widespread Cruzcampo.

“Excellent food & wine, great staff, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

If you love tapas, then Catalina offers tapas that are way different from the norm. Very edgy. Using lots of different ingredients, both European & North African & Asian. The Mojo sauce, used in a few dishes, is similar to a Spanish Romesco, but using heaps of cumin & coriander. Gorgeous..... Spring rolls - as good as we have had in Bangkok. Fried Camembert with tomato jam. Yummy..... Filo pastry with dates, cheese & bacon. Delicious. Wines were good too. Service great - both waitresses on duty were professional and very very pleasant. Overall a great experience.

“Amazing tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We went twice to this excellent restaurant. They have very special tapas such as "bolsita de queso con datiles y bacon", "chupa chups de carne" or " arroz con aceite de trufa y setas" .

A good selection of wines and desserts,

Buenísimo!
