“Fantastic modern restaurant”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stumbled across this small restaurant by accident. It stands out from the crowd as it looks very different to the other tapas venues in the street (and there are loads). We only really wanted a light lunch and the menu seemed to offer a good choice of light and fuller options.

The staff were fantastic. They were friendly, prompt and kept an eye on how quickly we were eating to ensure the tapas was perfectly timed.

However, the star of the show was the food. The menu (in Spanish and English) had unusual descriptions, such as basil gummys, and we were a little sceptical but when the food arrived it was truly excellent. It was light, fresh and very tasty.

There was a good wine selection but on this occasion we stuck to beer. However, the following day we were looking for somewhere a little different for our evening meal and just couldn't find anywhere that looked like it would beat La Azotea so we returned and went for the fuller options. Another truly excellent experience.

I can not recommend this place highly enough. It deserves exploration and i wish the owners and the staff well. Thank you.

A tip for others...we arrived at around 8pm and shortly afterwards all the tables had gone suggesting this place is now well known by all.

“Nice buzzy place with good food!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

A bit out of the way and as previous reviews have said the street is being relaid - in the UK the road would be closed - fortunately this is Spain. Small place but sit down for full portions or at the bar for tapas. Food is good and waiter was very helpful explaining the dishes and portions and making recommendations- which were good. really happy to recommend this place

“Brand new branch of a great restaurant”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Loved this little gem in the Santa Cruz neighborhood with cutting edge Spanish tapas! Great for foodies, sophisticated wine menu. We had the coquillenes and artichoke hearts to start and the grilled vegetables were divine! Be sure to try it!!

“Best tapas the whole time we were in Spain”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We ate here based on the recommendation of some Americans who live in Sevilla and it was a great recommendation. This was the best tapas we had the whole time we were in Spain. The hake was out of this world. But actually, everything we ordered was fantastic. There are 3 of these restaurants in Sevilla now, and we ate at the one on Zaragosa (I hope I got that right). It is a very small restaurant and quite popular, but the staff did a good job of accommodating our party of 6 in a reasonable amount of time. Wish I could go back there, and I will if I get back to Sevilla.

“Fish and fun”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We walked down a construction road to La Azotea on Jesus street and they were full. They suggested we walk to the other La Azotea which was a 3 minute walk away. The second location did not have a wait - it also did not have the atmosphere. The food was good. We tried several tapas and they were all good.
