About
Carmela Bar is opened since 1994, it is an excellent reference to taste TAPAS, an Andalusian tradition. It is located between the Santa Cruz and La Juderia area, a very distinctive place of the Centre of Seville. This is the perfect place to make a break and sit down in its great terrace near the most important monuments of our city: the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Giralda. It is also located very near La Carboneria, a famous place for live Flamenco music.

Waving a mournful goodbye to the EU from a fabulous tapas bar in Seville. Smily service, very quick, and so so tasty! Particularly enjoyed patas bravas and chickpea /spinach. Just across from our hotel and we were hungry absolutely hit the spot. Highly recommend 😁💃😁

Called here today for some lunch. My husband had a burger and I had mushroom tortilla. Both fine but not exceptional. The waiter was friendly and efficient. Fine place for a snack.

We serve the beers in small glasses, we call "caña de cerveza" and also can serve in "botellines" (small bottles of 25 cl.), all very cold. :)
