“Oh good God!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This place is a must do for travellers to Sevilla. First of all had a cooking lesson with the owner Willie, the man is a champion, charming and skillful. Had the great paella for an early lunch. Cooked right in front of us. Came back a few nights later as a group of ten. Told Willie to bring us whatever he thought was good it and it was all fantastic. The type of meal where every bite you just have to put your fork down and appreciate it. Couldn't ask for better food. Service was great, very helpful and not short on the alcohol. Had a table outside, yes it was next to a road but it was quiet and with the warm night the outside setting added to the atmosphere. WILL GO BACK when we go back to Sevilla.

“Stylish Tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On reflection, I think we arrived a little early by Spanish standards. On the recommendation of our hotel staff (Hotel Amadeus) we went to Poncio for lunch. It was very, very quiet. Warning bells, initially. We were greeted formally by a lady with an apparent aversion to smiling. Our table was the only one to be occupied......then the service came....then the food.....then more people. What a transformation. The service was impeccable. The tapas was stunning. A wide variety of dishes came at regular intervals, giving us a fantastic taste of Spanish tapas at its best. We resisted the offer of a set 25 Euros a head 6-tapas selection, in favour of choosing our own. That way, we got exactly what we wanted. Fish cooked to perfection, wonderful paella, rich vegetable dishes, and sumptious iberian ham and manchego. And much more besides. I suppose a touch expensive when compared with a tapas bar, so, relatively, not such good value for money. Nevertheless, an exquisite restaurant which we would unreservedly recommend.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We've never eaten such fantastic tapas before! The beetroot chilled soup was my favourite, though others would say the pork or the squid- and the prices were reasonable too.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This restaurant is around the corner from the Amadeus Hotel where we stayed in Seville. We had an amazing meal. Our server was terrific and he made several suggestions for tapas that we tried. All of them were outstanding. The food, wine and service was incredible. I would definitely go back.
