“Another glimpse of real Spain”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Heard about this bar online so called in at lunchtime whilst walking the streets of Seville. Tiny bar with some seating on the pavement. Squeezed in to the bar and ordered beers and took a risk on the tapas. Given a freebie of habas (sort of butter beans). Started with Boquerones Fritas (deep-fried anchovies) and Pavia de Pescado (battered fish). Order shouted through a hatch into the kitchen. They arrived before I'd taken my second sip of beer. Fresh and hot and delicious. Lots of locals dropping in for a drink and tapas. Second beer followed with Pescado Frito (fried fish - not quite as good as the Pavia) and Adopo (don't ask me but it is delicious). Noisy, crowded, real, no pretensions and at the bar the tapas were £1.60 a plate. Try it.

“A traditional place to eat dressed fried fish”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you are walking around the Tetuan street and you suddendly smell fried fish, that´s the point! You´re very close to Blanco Cerrillo restaurant.
This restaurant is evry popular between sevillian people. It´s perfect aound 12:00-13:00h when you´re hungry and you fell like having a tapa with a fresh beer.
The restaurant is very small. There is no place to sit. But you order your tapa of "adobo" (typical dressed fried fish), and go to stand outside in the street, eating and talking with friends.
It´s not expensive, and it´s a great opportunity to get to know the real traditions.

“The yummiest after shopping tapas”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

Blanco Cerrillo is one of the oldest bars in Seville. Very simple and no fuss. It is perfect for eating fried fish tapas, and the adobo is loved by the locals. It gets very packed and the tables outside (and any convenient space to place a tapa and beer) are usually occupied. Once inside though, you can normally holler your order and then inch your way to the bar. It is equipped with a team of three or four older waiters who are constantly shouting out the orders to the kitchen crew "'obo", "eroneeeeh" (boquerones). Something that I loved here before the smoking ban was that one of them had a little ciggy nooky-hole and would serve you and go back for a crafty drag every once in a while - now he swigs from a Cruzcampo botellín instead (a small bottle of Cruzcampo). Tapas are well-priced at only €1.50 a pop.
