“There was a nail in my tiramisu.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Good food. Lack of hygiene though as I found a nail in my tiramisu. The waiter came back to me with the lame excuse that it was a piece of lemon when clearly it wasn't as I had the nail in my mouth. Our waiter was unfriendly and irritated by the fact that we took time to choose our wine. Despite that our evening was ruined by the nail fiasco, the restaurant didn't do anything to apologize apart from take the dessert off the menu upon my request

The setting for fhis restaurant is charming and the exoerienc of eating in an historic building is enhanced with low key guitar pkaying. The food was good but not amazing . Price was reasonable 40 euros for 2 courses for two people with twio glasses of wine .

“Superb food, service and ambience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

You need to make a reservation to be seated in this restaurant and they usually play hosts to tours/parties. We enjoyed our evening spent here and shared a starter and dessert (salad and tiramisu). The service itself is impeccable, dirty dishes whisked away, wine topped up, plates for shells exchanged frequently etc. I would recommend this if you wanted to share a special evening with someone. Families were also present. As it is an old arab bath house it does get a bit chilly so I suggest dress warmly. The menu is not over priced and the food was fresh and delicious. Definitely a must try!

“Great food in an architectural gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

We had lunch at the San Marco. The building itself is a twelfth century Arabic bath with Moorish arches and blocks. What a pleasant surrounding for a meal!

The service was fast and efficient. We had seafood, pizza and pasta; all of which were excellent. The deserts were also very good and the coffee excellent.

We will definitely eat here again if we return to Seville.

“lovely setting, stellar service. Food's just average.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Italian restaurant in Seville. Walk in, downstairs into a lovely setting with stone walls (think it's an arab bath). Live music. Service, setting, everything except the food is really, really nice. The food was good but nothing to write home about. Skip the very pretty dessert. Not worth the calories.
