Our hotel suggested this place and it didn't disappoint. Great huge olives, yummy croquettes, and cod. Then the Sangria had quite a kick. The inside was very impressive also. Would recommend.

Oldest tapas bar in Seville. If that isn’t enough to check it out then just go for the great tapas. It is a traditional tapas bar so it is mainly standing only, not a place if you want to sit and relax.

We had the most delicious lunch at this charming restaurant (the oldest bar in Seville). The service was brilliant and the food was excellent (the sea bass and the gazpacho especially). Would've loved to go back if there was time.

This is not a review of the restaurant (couldn't get a table when we tried, albeit without prior booking), but only the bar. The oldest in Spain and as such, inevitably a bit touristy (why were we there? We're all tourists!) but excellent atmosphere, good...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.
