Description: En 1844 el ilustre poeta y dramaturgo vallisoletano, José Zorrilla y Moral, se alojó en la Hostería del Laurel mientras escribió su obra más conocida “Don Juan Tenorio”. Se dice que gran parte de su inspiración para la creación de sus personajes y encuadre de la historia vino dado por aquellos que les rodeaban en aquellos momentos. En la obra, ambientada en la Sevilla de 1545, en los últimos años del reinado de Carlos I de España, La Hostería del Laurel es la taberna en la que Don Juan y Don Luis habían acordado reunirse transcurrido un año después de su apuesta, es donde se desarrolla casi todo el Acto I de la obra. Si visitas Sevilla, y aún más si lo haces en Noviembre, es de obligada cita esta taberna, antigua "casa de gulas", casas de comidas, que abundaban en Sevilla en el siglo XIX, y que hoy, con otro nombre, siguen llenando sus calles, y aún más en este mítico barrio de Santa Cruz. Bienvenidos a la Hostería del Laurel

Together with a friend I stayed at this hotel and we also dined in the restaurant.
The interior of the restaurant has a charming decor and creates a nice atmosphere. We both had the chicken with vegetables and potatoes and for dessert the typical "flan" and it all tasted very good. We only dined here once because we always like to try out many different restaurants.
The meal we had was reasonably priced although we did notice that the tapas were a bit expensive.
All in all I do want to recommand this restaurant, maybe if you want something different than tapas.
We thought the service was very good and food was served quickly.

Set in the heart of Seville's old section, the restaurant offers good (but not great) food in a lovely old dining room decorated with Spanish artifacts. Service was pleasant, but unlike many other restaurants, offered no pre- or post-dining extras (like olives or aperitifs).

The serving staff is rude and the food and wine isoverpriced. Check your bill - we were charged 4 euros for 2 coffees that we never had. The plaza is a nice place to be until they turn on the high watt flood lights which shine directly into your face. We will not be back.

Good location for this restaurant in the center.
The style offers you the famous andalousian and spanish "touch" in the atmospher as well in the food.
