“Amazing tapas”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The best tapas ever!
If you are in Seville, do not miss the opportunity to visit this remarkable restaurant, the place is well maintained but best quality fresh tapas and wine. The staff was really nice and the service excellent. The price is surprisingly reasonable for the quality food. We shall return.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Whilst in Seville we came across the Al Aljibe and had our first fantastic meal there- it turned out to be the first of three- so good was the food. On each occasion the staff were friendly efficient and helpful.

Recommend eating on the upstairs terrace.

“Wow”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Visited this place following consulting previous Tripadvisor reviews. We were not diasppointed. This was authentic tapas, cooked and served extremely well. We knew they could get busy so we waited like the tourists we were outside at the appointed opening time of 8pm. Of course this is Spain. They let us in about 8.30pm. Opening times seem to be merely an aspiration. This is not a criticism in the slightest. One needs to adjust to the way things are done. By 9pm the place was packed and they were turning people away. We wer happy at out little table on the nicely lit terrace. We were not hurried. We enjoyed the best meal we have had for a long time here. Our bill was about 60 Euros for 6 tapas, 2 desserts, bottle of wine, extra drinks and coffee.

“Our best meal in Spain”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We read the reviews and guides and Al Alijibe was mentioned several times so we made it our last meal in Spain. It was packed with a wait list when we arrived but we asked to stand AT&T he bar and within five minutes the busy staff had "made" a table for us. They have menus in English, French, Spanish and more. We were able to get answers to our questions about the tapas descriptions and ordered immediately, getting 4 tapas for the two of us to split. DELICIOUS. Great balance of flavors and ingredients. We learned that the chef is a Imported genius that specializes in Peruvian and Japanese style cooking, which explains why the pork was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the cuts of meat were flawless. The desserts were equally delicious and there was a great selection of wine. Obviously the courtyard is the best seating, but there is a lot of noise from the public square and the inside worked for us. Make reservations and listen to the waitstaff's recommendations!
