We stopped off here at night as it was close to our hotel for tapas and drinks. We ordered two tapas and two drinks, the waitress was very nice and she took our orders. My partner ordered in Spanish who knows basic Spanish and have...got by in other restaurants and bars in Seville and Barcelona etc ordering just fine. We noticed the male waitor with dark long greasy hair pointed and laughed at us not once but twice!!! This dampened our night and we certainly did not order any more tapas or drinks from this place. We don't know if they were laughing at us ordering in Spanish ( we are English and we we try to learn a language that isn't even our first language) We went in low tourist season in January but this was inexcusable. We ate the medicore food and left and went to better places the nights after. This is a place right under one of the main tourist attractions in Seville, if you don't like tourists don't work in a place that will bring tourists in especially as we are the ones to leave tips. As we left we held a door open for another male waitor who did not smile or say thank you. Rude service apart from the female waitress. Don't recommend this place we have been to much nicer tapas places and bars in Seville and this is not it.More

The place offers really good Spanish dishes, both meat-based and those for vegetarians. The staff is super nice and the location is perfect.

We stopped for lunch, the food was not very tasty, and the presa iberica I ordered was so raw that it bounced on the plate. The service was OK.

Although the staff was quite nice, I must say that I was served one of the worst risotto of my life. It was dry as it was made long ago and re-heated. I understand that restaurants may be facing a tough period but I mentioned...that the risotto was not good, but they charged it nonetheless. And here is where I draw the line between good restaurants that make a mistake and the ones that just care about the money and not the client.More

I have lived here for 10 years, eaten in here numerous times and always found them friendly and the food good. I have never had this problem but it seems that that are feeling the pinch financially and trying to rip people off. I ordered...a glass of water and tapa each for my children and asked if I could pay for an egg separately to which I was told yes. Firstly they brought me a bottle of water which I returned and explained that I had asked for just a glass of water for them. When the food came out they had put the same as a tapa portion with an egg so they had used a bigger plate. We finally asked for the bill and for 2 tapas and a drink for me the bill was €12,50. ( It would normally be about €7 When I questioned the bill they said that they had charge me for 2 tapas as they could not do an egg separately and they had charged me for the bottle of water. I said that I would happily pay for the food as we had eaten it but I asked why nobody advised me that they could not charge the egg separately and offer me to purchase the two tapas. After hearing me discussing this with the waiter, who happened to be the managers son, she came over and started telling me that she had advised the waiter to do that, if I didn´t speak in half tongue he would have understood me. (I speak pretty good Spanish although my grammar isn´t fabulous, I have never had a problem being understood before.) I said that she was in the tourist centre did she say that to all of the foreign visitors and she said if you live in Spain you should speak in proper Spanish not in half tongue. Anyway I have no problem with saying the food is basic but good but the rudeness and attitude of the management is appalling. She also insulted a Spanish colleague of mine earlier in the week who had ordered a table. She was seating clients and whilst on a call told them SHHHH I am working I cant serve you now be quiet.More

so good food, good service, but be carefull, it's the spanish way of bringing dish by dish when it's ready, doesn't matter that it's just one person's dish and the other one doesn't have anything in front, if you don't mind that it's brilliant ....We only tried the special tapas, not the menu , the tartars were pretty good especially for the price, the tuna tataki fab, caneloni really good, all the food was top. service started really quick as it was only 20.00 when we arrived, at 20 30 it was getting slower and the decoracion of the dishes weren't as good as in the begining ( some dishes were so good that we asked for more ) but for the prices you can't complain.More

This tapas bar is round the corner from our hotel and perfect for drinks or lunch. The staff are really friendly and speak great English , Iber was very friendly and helpful with the menu. The menu is fab with lots to choose from ,...and you can have the full or taps portion. We have been there twice for lunch now on our visit to Seville, definitely worth trying.More

There were 12 of us who wanted to eat earlier than the usual dining time (6.30pm while most kitchens didn't open until 8.30pm). They were very accommodating, patient and the food was delicious. You could get small and larger portions which also made it brilliant....Would definitely recommend!More

We are a group of 6 students travelling around Spain and therefore, have a student budget. Le Gorda de Las Setas fitted our criteria in being cheap, however, the quality of the food was very poor. Although it is cheap you would still expect to...get better value for money than what you get. The service was okay, at the start the waiters were fairly attentive but later in the meal they forgot about us meaning we had to wait a long time between a round of tapas, which when it eventually did come was like warm. I feel in Seville you could get better value for money, although it is cheap, you would still expect better service and quality than what we received.More

I asked the staff to explain the daily “tapas” menu and they took that as que to order anything they wanted for us, without us realising and not giving us any chance to read the menu or decide for ourselves. After much debate and me...standing my ground, I managed to choose one dish out of the 4 and when it came to the table it was not even correct. Rather then mash it was stale old chewy fries and rather then a quality grilled pork loin it was a poor excuse for a deep fried crumbed piece of chewy meat (?). As for the other meals which resembled more like poor quality fast food and not the Spanish tapas we had excitingly envisaged. When I said something to the waiter (which is rare for me to do) he didn’t even care that the order was incorrect. We were so disappointed we had to go elsewhere. I would NOT waste my time here!More

Inside and outside pavement seating options. Good value and tasty tapas food. The service was reasonably good. Beer on tap also good. However, it is looking a bit tired and run down (the men's toilet had no toilet seat and the lock was broken!). Seems...to be more a venue for young revellers. Good for a quick bite.More
