This is a must visit bar in Seville - great food (cheap too!), great drink and great atmosphere. There are very few seats so it's really a case of standing around at the bar inside or joining the throng that spills out onto the street in front; either way it's lively and great fun.

Recommend this bar by segway guide as the best tapas bar in Seville. It's a great experience you ought to do. Stand at the bar order, a drink, and play tapas roulette as you try to translate the Spanish tapas menu. Bar staff are friendly and happy to cope with mangled Spanish. At 2 euros a dish it doesn't really matter if you make a mistake! Your bill is chalked on the bar in front of you which is sort of fun too. May not be the best meal you ever have but it will be one of the most different.

This feels like the authentic no-nonsense, often packed out with locals, spit and sawdust tapas bar - on the edge of the main square. Dozens of tapas rustled up lightening speed through in the steamy kitchen behind the bar - and your bill chalked on the bar top until you are finished. We never miss coming here when in Seville!!

Difficult to say which of the components has impressed me the most: the quality of the food, the value, the overall athmosphere or the staff... Not to mention the location, in Sevilla's most touristical place. Unlike most other bars and restaurants around, this one has a nice mix of locals, Spanish tourists and non-Spanish tourists. Seeing (and hearing) the staff at work is part of the pleasure of being there. Whoever you are, they give you the feeling of being welcome to enjoy the nice parts of living in Andalucia, in a very informal way (if you manage to find a seating place inside, and you're sitting next to the telephone, they might ask you to pass the handset over to the bar when someone is calling the bodega). The interior is that of a late nineteenth century Spanish bar, with lots of dark wood and ceramic tiles. An absolute must!

Called in here on the basis of many recommendation about this bodega. Case of the quick and the dead with ordering but staff seem to join in the fun of bumbling turistos trying to work out the menu. We had five or six tapas and some beer and wine before moving on to another place. All the tapas were good local examples of the food. When in doubt just order the albondigas- never fails.
