We went here every day we were in Sevilla. We were staying nearby and couldn't resist the fantastic pastries and coffee on offer in this panaderia. We didn't try much else but for spanish sweets and a quick coffee standing at the bar (or a seat in the sun on the plaza) this was a great experience. Again and again. And again. Service OK - don't be afraid to speak up and make your presence known!

We came upon this place during siesta time. We ordered a salad, spaghetti, and mixed paella. My niece devoured the spaghetti. The mixed paella was disappointing. It was salty and not served up in the paella pan. Was it scooped up from a paella pan warming up in the kitchen?

Mid-way into our meal, the second level was starting to fill up, standing room only. Time to get going, but it took forever to flag anyone to give us our check. Once we got it, then it took an exorbitant amount of time to pay the bill with our credit card. They were too busy scrambling in busing tables and getting people seated.

Although the pastry downstairs was what lured us inside, but the food and service were average.

Stopped by here for dinner after the flamenco show at the museum. We wanted to sit outside but the tables weren't cleared.When we finally managed to get the attention of the person in charge outside and a clean table it took him more than 10 minutes to hand us a menu and then we were just ignored. We sat there for almost 20 minutes with him just passing by or cleaning the table next to us without bothering to take our order even when we indicated that we were ready.
Eventually we gave up and went next door for crepes.

We stopped in here for lunch-it looks cute but after ordering the waitress came back and told us they were out of 3 out of 5 things. They were out of 2 other things we tried to order so we settled on 3 orders of the same dish. When they came they were terrible! It seemed like it had been sitting there all day and was just reheated. We hardly ate any of it. When we got the check they charged us 15 euros each instead if the 3.90 that was listed on the menu! The waitress said we did not tell her we wanted the lunch portion -(even though it was lunch time (2:00). Our other food items were also not good-there are so many good restaurants in Seville -stay away from this one!!!! The dessert case looked okay-but don't waste your time on the food.

We stopped in late night for chocolate croissants and espresso. Great location opposite the Cathdral on busy street. Fun to sit at outside table to watch the action.
