We spotted this place down an alleyway when we first arrived and said 'that looks lovely' - I'm glad we made sure to go back one evening as the food was amazing and the service charming. The black pudding empanadas were one of the best things I have ever eaten.

We stumbled upon la Sal taberna for lunch one day after struggling among the many tourist traps in the area around the Cathedral for lunch. The specialize in tuna dishes which my daughter loves so we decided to try it. We sat outside in the narrow winding street which has a lovely character and had a delicious lunch of crabmeat lasagna, tuna tartar and a spanish omelet with some wine. It was a wonderful surprise and very high quality after some very medicre meals in the area. We would absolutely go back there again for tapas or to try a dinner meal. Contrary to one of the other reviewers it was moderately to fairly priced and certainly a better deal that the tourist traps surrounding it. It is a lovely family owned restaurant.

Many of the negative reviews so far come from people who were looking for a tapas bar, but this isn’t a tapas bar which are easy enough to find in Seville if that is what you want. La Sal is instead a restaurant for people who are looking for good fish. We originally planned to eat at Engaña Oriza, but, it turned out they were closed that one day in the year. The owner answered the phone and recommended La Sal to us. My wife comes from a family of Spanish gastronomers and so spoke with the owner for a long time after our meal, mostly about different types of fish and the cuts of fish and where to get the best fish. The owner explained that her family had a popular restaurant in Cadiz before starting this one in Seville, so the produce still comes mostly from Cadiz. She also worked in a restaurant in Madrid where she learned techniques for Japanese cooking and started experimenting with combining Spanish and Japanese cuisine, but the Japanese influence is subtle. The food can be salty (in keeping with the tastes of authentic southern Spanish food), but if that is not to your taste you can ask for less. There is an excellent risotto made with cardillo (thistles!) for vegetarians, and a good wine selection. But mostly this is the place to go for fresh, quality fish cooked by a chef who knows fish. While others have complained about the service, our service was prompt and the prices were reasonable. But the main attraction isn’t service, price or location; it’s the fish. This is a restaurant that shows just how good Spanish fish can be.

One of us had the beef casserole which was good. However, I had the tuna wok that was so salty it was inedible. Most of the dishes were tuna based and some appeared to be Japanese_inspired.

The prices on the menu wEre misleading ... however the staff were friendly, patient with those who didn't speak Spanish and generally accommodating. but service was slow. I wouldn't go there again especially given the price.

The name of the place gives something away... Sal = salt. They like salty fish dishes. Good for some, not for others. However, the owner was delightful and the sardines even better.
