Description: A stroll the Murillo gardens, a leisurely walk a long San Fernando Street. You will find our Restaurant by the wall of the Royal Alcazar Palace. The mansion housing the restaurant dates from 1926, spacious and bright, it including a greenhouse, where you can eat the best quality and service in the city Seville.But ORIZA is much more, and we have widened the offer from our haute cousin restaurant to cater for all needs: not only every meals is a celebration nor do we often enjoy two-hour lunches. Today you can also have a drinks and few tapas, and of course, as in the last 25 years, meet and celebrate at ORIZAUn paseo por el jardin Murillo, un paseo largo a la calle San Fernando. Usted encontrara nuestro restaurante junto a la pared del Palacio Real Alcazar.La carcasa de la mansion del restaurante data de 1926, espacioso y luminoso, incluyendo un invernadero, donde se puede comer la mejor calidad y servicio de la ciudad de Sevilla.Pero Oriza es mucho mas, y hemos ampliado la oferta de nuestro restaurante primo alta para atender a todas las necesidades: no solo cada comida es una celebracion ni tampoco suelen disfrutar de dos horas de almuerzo. Hoy en dia tambien se puede tomar una cerveza y unas tapas, y por supuesto, al igual que en los ultimos 25 anos, se reunen y celebran en Oriza

“Agree with the poor reviewers ratings”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This restaurant comes with a serious reputation for fine dining and therefore expectations are high & ultimately disappoints. Wish we had read previous reviewers comments.

The main courses were disappointing mainly due to the textures being overly 'mushy' and similarly coloured - giving the appearance of slops. Not good on the eye and totally underwhelming on the palate.

Tapas & appetisers were frankly disappointing - coming with a high price tag - you expect zing & panache - instead it was dull & weak flavoured.

The staff have a problem they work in a restaurant with a high reputation, in a marvellous conserverwtoire that promises much and know the food is underwhelming customers - this is particularly evident at bill time - they were frankly sheepish.

Really really poor against much higher expectations. Agree with many others here - Seville is a tapas strong city - its sit down restaurants have too greater competition and are beaten handsomely.

“Sad and very bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

What happened? Last year we had a great meal in this restaurant; a definitely 5* experience, very expensive but worth it. The minute I walked in the door I had the feeling something was wrong, the hostess had a clipboard and greeted us brusquely, then led us to a table which was not the sparkling starched napery of old but looked tired and vaguely grubby as did the personnel's outfits. It felt like a canteen: a waitress arrived with a bread basket and more or less chucked a breadroll (no choice of breads) onto our plates, our meals arrived separately, waiters served and took away from the wrong side, the wine was not replenished correctly. And the food was a similar story, my husband's tian had broken coming out of the mould and looked mushy and was tasteless, my warm scallop salad (one of their signature dishes) was tasteless, vinegary and cold. Mains were similarly disasterous, the only thing not skimped on was salt! We didn't have dessert or coffee. The bill was over €200 for the worst meal I have ever had, I ate tapas for €3 on the side of the road in Seville that were higher quality than this. We asked in our hotel what the story was: Didn't you hear, they said, new management. Avoid.

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend from Spain, so the expectations were very high. It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable meals we've had worldwide. Be sure to order the scallops appetizer. It's one of the most amazing dishes we've ever had (seriously). The service was perfect and the Crianza wine we selected was also perfect. We enjoyed the elegant atmosphere of the large white room.

“I really enjoyed this delicious meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I had the ibeza steak tapa. Enough for a small meal. The mustard based sauce on this perfectly cooked pork was fantastic. The boiled potatoes and side were just as perfect. I repeated to my girl friend 3 times what a great meal this was and what a treat it was to eat. I hope to go again for the ox tail.

“I would not recommend”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Went there this evening and was extremely disappointed. Terribly over priced as evidenced by an 18 Euro gizpaccho. My cod was awful, the salad was saturated in vinegar but my wife enjoyed her lamb. Find a different place to go. Yes, the room was beautiful .
