“Great surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Had lunch in this restaurant on a sunday. It's on the second line, so it's definetly a calm and cozy place to eat.

The business is young and owners never ran a restaurant before, and you can notice that. FOR GOOD! You can early feel they have no bad habits, and just look to be treated like they liked to be treated as costumers for years.

You won't get the traditional plain tapas here. They take risks, you can find really original tapas here.

For example, I tasted "albondigas con nata". I certainly prefer meat-balls cooked otherwise, but it was a worth surprise. Just let you advice for the owners, you won't regret.

I've read some critic about the "small" amount of food you get for the price, and i can understand some might feel that way, but we are talking about tapas here folks!!! Not gonna argue with anyone about what's the correct amount, but i have to say we drank 2 cups of wine + 6 tapas and the bill was just 16€, and i was completly satisfied.

They also have some options for vegetarians, and they are really up to adapt their dishes to your needs, so, anyway, anyhow, i would give this place a shot if i were you!!!

I'm a travel agent in north-eastern spain, and recommending this kind of places to my costumers are what make my job worth.

Really hope these guys at Abbatia have good luck and can keep their illusion. They seem to deserve it!!!

!Que tengais suerte!

“Tucked away gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

We found this small tapas bar tucked away around the corner from our hotel and we were so glad we did. The service was outstanding we instantly felt welcomed and stayed far longer than planned. Excellent value for money and a beautiful haven in the city but away from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommended.

“Acogedor-warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Hemos encontrado este restaurante por casualidad, huyendo los turistas de las calles cercanas a la catedral. Ha sido el mejor lugar para tapas que hicimos en Sevilla. El proprietario es muy simpático y la cocina de su mujer excelente. Nos han atendido como reyes y lo recomiendo a todos!!
We have found this restaurant randomly, we we're trying to escape the tourist crowd near the cathedral. That was the best place to eat tapas in Sevilla. The owner is very nice and his wife a very good cooker. We were treated like kings and I invite everyone to go there and enjoy the typical spanish way of life!!
