This is a very long established local restaurant with exceptional service and great food. We didn't have reservations but the waiter seated us without them....he turned away many people after we were seated. It is a fun experience...clearly s beloved local restaurant

This bar has been on my bucket list ever since Rick Stein visited in his Spain series...it lived up to all expectations of a old style bar with amazing food and a fantastic range of drinks...HOWEVER...my experience was tainted by the disgusting state of the ladies toilets downstairs. Yes it was very busy and (seemingly) all the staff were male... More

We arrived to Rinconcillo about 4 PM, the place was almost empty, however we had to stay a the standing up tables as the regular tables area was closed. The place is nice, showing all over the place the beautiful colorful tiles. Service was good. Tapas were really nice. Tinto de Verano (drink) was amazing !

Packed when we arrived at 8.30pm and unable to even get to the bar. Told to wait by a grumpy waiter and then taken upstairs to the formal restaurant by another grumpy waiter about 15 minutes later despite saying we wanted to eat in the tapas bar/restaurant rather than the formal restaurant. We eventually left without eating so cannot comment... More

Dropped by yesterday afternoon. I had read reviews beforehand which lead me to believe this was a Seville institution resting on its laurels with grumpy staff. However the place was busy with locals and tourists alike. Staff were good and attentive, and the tapas was really good. Would recommend a visit, the interior was beautiful

We had a reservation at this restaurant, when we arrived we were so looking forward to it, it was bustling, full of character...when we checked in, the maitre'd sent us upstairs and sat us in a room with a bunch of rowdy Australians who were in town for a wedding, we asked if we could dine downstairs and he said...

Wonderful food and place. Crowded with locals dropping in for a quick drink and meal. The sane family has run this spot since 1800!

Enjoyed a very good meal as family of 4 adults on a Sunday night- best to book as this is a popular restaurant. We eat upstairs in a room full of character and a more formal feeling than most other restaurants. The meal was at the more expensive end - two share starters, 4 mains and a bottle of wine... More

The food is very good, the service is good too. If you want a quiet evening, ask for a table upstairs, the downstairs area can get really noisy as it's typical in Andalusian bars and it's mainly for standup, whereas the upstairs area offers tables and chairs.

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.
