The oldest bar in Sevilla it may be, boasting jamons hanging from a rack above the bar and tiles adorning the walls and floors leaving no doubt as to where you are but it is the blokes behind the bar writing what you have had in chalk on the bar where you are sitting that is what sends this bar...

We were advised by some locals to eat here and we strolled in around 8:45pm. The back area you order off the menu and sit down but we wanted the local experience so we stood and had tapas at the front. The location quickly started getting busy and the next thing you know it is full with people waiting outside.... More

It's a cute 19th century style building with about 6 tables and a large area for the bar.if you've not reserved in advance you'll be made to wait but it's totally worth it. They've another restaurant with a similar name wi4h their tables outside mostly empty, but wouldn't be anywhere close to this one, their service is great, trust the... More

We visited El Rinconcillo for lunch and tasted several tapas. Within a few minutes, we started a conversation with several local regulars and to say the least, we had a grand time. We had a great lunch, were treated to several glasses of local wine and enjoyed about three hours of good food, wine and great local company. The tapas... More

This place is amazing. The cod and the spinach are fantastic. Be prepared for it to be very full and to eat standing. It is the oldest restaurant in Seville, which is a plus. The staff was very friendly and made great recommendations.

It is just one of these places that radiates so much of the typical local bar esprit. Go and order things you do not know...let them surprise you. But certainly order the excellent jamon.

The food was ok. The service was subpar. The staff seemed to cater to some folks they knew and ignored our table. I will not be coming back.

Visited here following in the footsteps of Rick Stein. Staff were unfriendly, the famed iberico ham was no better than the stuff you can buy in a Uk supermarket. Yes it feels old and traditional but it smells like a well used gents toilet and the staff are about as upbeat as someone cleaning the urinals. There are better places... More

A very typical place that looks really cool inside. Friendly staff, affordable and tasty tapas. The sangria is recommended too. We had quite a few tapas and would recommend them all. Portions are good too.

Located on the Calle Gerona, El Rinconcillo has been serving up Spanish cuisine in Seville since 1760. This historic restaurant boasts a rustic-chic dining room that is dressed up in cosmopolitan clothes. With understated whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, chandeliers and fresh flower arrangements, El Rinconcillo attracts everybody from local celebrities to families who come to enjoy traditional tapas and Sunday meals, and the mosaic-tiled bar with wine barrel tables is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and mid-afternoon glasses of wine. The menu is an eclectic collection of tapas dishes, stews, seafood, meat and sweet flans for dessert, and you couldn���t find a more quintessentially Spanish eatery in Seville if you tried.
