“Sensational cuisine”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Vineria San Telmo is one of those local places that can pass unnoticed to the common tourist in Seville. It is just another normal looking place on a normal street near Alcazar gardens.
But the trained eye should look on the menu and on the tables to see the real treasure.
The collection of wines, the exquisite meal, the presentation of the meal and the help of the staff are all top notch.
Don't try a single course, you should choose multiple courses - "tapas" size (which is somehow less than half of normal portion). We tried 6 tapas for 2 persons and it was amazing. Just to give you some hints: salmon tartar, shrimp carpaccio, fois gras with fruits and chocolate....
Best meal in town!

P.S.
1) We stayed there 2 hours, no one hurried us because we had 6 courses which were brought one by one...but definitely it is not a restaurant where you can stay with a soda in front of you all day. They are loaded with reservations due to quality.
2) It is a place where you can discuss in English with the staff, sorry for other nationalities who underrate this restaurant for this reason, they should appreciate this in Spain where it is so hard to talk with people in some other language than spanish.
3) If you want to go there to buy a beer and have fun, don't, it's not for you. It's a place for food enthusiasts.

“Nice, but over rated”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We had a very nice meal here with a range of different tapas. The tapas is better than in the touristy standard places, but you also pay nearly double the price. Be aware that it is full and that they will aim to have you finish you meal as fast as possible so they can serve the next in line. They will bring you the bill if you want no desert or coffee, even if you did not ask for the bill.

“overrated food and only for english-speaking guests”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

food was average and price was above the average. place is near parking place - not pleasant! there were only guest led by tripadvisor rank and lonelyplanet'd 'top choice'. Guest all seemed to be tourists. Staffs all speak good english and there is no spanish speaking guests.
there are much nicer tapaterias nearby with better food and price. i would never go there again.

“A must for any foodie”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Our host recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. There is a great choice of food and the serves are very generous, so don't order too much. The service is very good. You need to book so you are secured a seat.
