“Our first decent Tapas experience”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

My wife and I were walking down from the Flamenco Museum to the Cathedral when, at Piacentes, we spotted an attractive Tapas Restaurant sporting the Red Disc of a Guide Michelin recommendation. We were not really hungry and had some fine chops in the apartment refrigerator to cook when we got back. We had never had a decent Tapas despite several experimental run-ins with the genre, and the prospect of tasting a little bite of something interesting with the Michelin moniker was irresistible. Just one each, we agreed. The place was deserted at 7.15 pm as we entered and remained so. A number of cold dishes were prominently displayed in a glass case and we selected two: large handsome-looking prawns on bed of creamy potato and codfish; and a piquant seafood salad. Both came with generous portions, and the quality was remarkable. We decided to alter our earlier decision and tried two hot Tapas. One was spinach with sea-cod flakes and the other was a "Moorish Kebab". The first proved to be chick peas more than the two named ingredients, but the Kebab was very spicy in the best possible way ---- accompanied by cold potatoes marinated in olive oil, and a mixture of dried out sliced carrots and peas that was tasteless. But 3 out of 4 were beyond our expectations, and the wine was of decent quality ---- a white from Huelva and a Red Rioja. The price per glass was a stiff E3.50, while the Tapas were reasonably marked up at E3.35. Service by a sole waiter was efficient and gracious, and the place had great atmosphere and was spotless. Our aversion to Tapas has been severely dented.

“Potatoe and Ham Croquettes”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The food in Robles, (make sure you find the right one as there are a few), is of a very high standard. We ate here three times in four days and enjoyed every visit.

“Keep looking”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Robles Tapas is riding on its location alone. There is little if any effort put into the food, its presentation or the service. And the prices are relatively high. If you are searching for a good meal in Seville, keep looking.

“Robles Tapas is not to be visited”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Robles Tapas is in Sevilla tourist area close to the Cathedral and naturally gets a good crowd. The kind of crowd (spanish and tourists) that does not love to eat. Robles Taps food is badly cooked, tasteless and overpriced. I fell in the trap.
