I didn't expect much from this quite small local bar (well, they are all rather small here) but we found it was packed by locals and foreigners for a reason. They have a good variety of drinks (which, of course, are a bargain) and nice menu of cold tapas, having marked vegetarian and vegan friendly options well (something that is... More

From the outside it looks really cute and authentic Spanish. However, when I entered I got nausea from the smell of the meat hanging on the ceiling. There is no music. It's nice when this would be your local spot, but for a one time visit I would prefere something with more Spanish music and less meat.

Came to visit as recommended from trip advisor. It has good tasty tapas at reasonable prices. Nice wines and beers for cheap too. I tried the local favourite orange wine out... Wasn't for me but hey, no harm in giving it a try. Great sport for lunch!

We loved this bar and visited it both for breakfast and a snack lunch. Super friendly service. Good for gluten free: bruscetta at lunch and tostades or madeleines at breakfast. It is very central near Plaza Alfafa. Highly recommended.

We love the Bar Alfalfa. It is our favorite bar in Sevilla. The drinks are great and the tapas are delicious. The people there are very friendly.

This bar is nicely placed to people watch or sit a read a book in a relaxed way having a small beer or two. I didn't have any food whilst here but what I saw coming out looked good and there was several locals eating there which is normally a good sign, even though it looked a very small kitchen... More

Tapas are not cooked but only heated by oven. Stuff are cold and unwelcome. I really don't get how this one can be rated so well. The tapas are just of mediocre taste, nothing special... can't be compared to La Bartola at all

"Cosy" has been used by a few other reviewers to describe this place, which is apt. Came here once in the evening and twice for breakfast. Tuna special and calamorejo (dinner) both very good. Andalusian tostada (jamon et tomate) for breakfast very tasty. Good coffee. Very good value overall. Certainly a place to visit while on a "tapas crawl" in... More

This bar was close to our hotel and became our starting point most nights. It gets full quick but that adds to the charm. Good tapas and good prices too. Recommended

This place was nice, very small. Device is all at the bar, it's very hard to get there attention from back there. But food was lovely not to sure about the beers but that's just a personal preference. The tapas for the meat is literally for one person you get about 5 slices. But the veggie option is quite large... More
