Absolutely loved it here. The atmosphere was amazing, the restaurant decor traditional and the food delicious. Definitely head here if you are after a tapas experience. Tip - eat at the bar if you can!

You will experience authentic Spanish hospitality and atmosphere in this ancient tapas joint. Service is top notch and unpretentious. I highly recommend the Spanish omelette with Jamon as well as the fried fish.

Oldest Tapas bar in Sevilla with great food! Despite the crowd seating was not a problem. Make sure you ate getting Tapas & notdinner portions! We had dimner. Loved the Bacalao a la Norteña! This is a must when in Sevilla.

I was recommended this place by a colleague from Seville because apparently it's one of the oldest places to buy food in Seville. The food is great, well priced and arrives quick. Mostly you will stand at the bar to eat but there are some tables and chairs

One of the best food experiences we had during this trip to Andalucia. Portions are large..Go for meals in the back..Try to get waiter Raphael..He was excellent helpful and fun...The food is simply fantastic..Been there since 1670..Noisy but great experince with mostly Spanish clientel...Excellent Rosado wines and Tempranillo reds..The Jamon Iberico here the best. A highlight of our trip...

Having seen this place in the Michelin Guide we decided to get the hotel to book for us. A delightful, old fashioned, traditional Sevillian building just oozing character. The hams hanging in the tapas area of the bar and lots of locals chatting over a drink. We were dining in the restaurant area and fell foul of one of the... More

Visiting this bar is meeting the old Spain. The interiour is great, I do not know any bar in Spain that authentic. Tapas are good, but ow, the waiters are still a bit grumpy and could be more friendly. It gives you the feeling that it is an honour to be served. That is also the old Spain, a pity... More

Description
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.
