“Excellent Experience at Arenero”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We had just purchased some antique tiles and asked the owner for recommendations on where to eat. He walked out, pointed at Arenero as having the best tapas in Sevilla. He was right! It was a great tapas bar with very innovative dishes and very personal warm service. It was a very enjoyable experience as we awaited each new dish, served with some nice white wine selections made by our waiter.

- The tuna and blue fin dishes were excellent, though the star of the course was the octopus with potato salad & herb aioli

“One of the best in Sevilla!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

There are many places to get traditional tapas and are set-up to deal and serve many tourist. Arenero is certainly not one of those one in a million places that surrounds it. By far, it combines innovative cuisine with masterful selection of flavors to make it one of the best restaurants in Sevilla. We have tried pretty much every mid to high end restaurant and keep coming back to Arenero a couple of times per week. My family is here from the USA for my work (nearly 3 years). Everyone we meet that ask us for good restaurants in Sevilla, Arenero is always the first.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Lovely food, good service and a handy location. Much better than any of the other tapas bars or restaurants around it. It may look uninspiring from the outside, however once inside it's a great place to be....I'm in Seville several times a year and this restaurant is on my 'must visit' list.

“A favorite of our guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The rain in Sevilla brought us to this restaurant several years ago, but the modern twist on tapas keep us coming back. We have had wonderful lunches with friends from Europe the U.S. and Canada, and everyone has thanked us for the experience. It is more pricey than other tapa restaurants, but no one has ever complained about the splurge. There is no outside seating except for a very small patio in the back.

“overpriced....very overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food was good but certainly not worth the prices they charge. There are a few plcaes nearby that charge half the price for excellent food. Decor is cool, modern and nice.
