Seville is Spain’s 4th largest city and as such has a huge selection of places to eat. You can definitely eat very well in the city and visiting one of its best restaurants is one of our favorite things to do in Seville. But you need to know where to go – otherwise you might end up eating fried fish & seafood the whole time in a bar packed with foreigners. Our selection below is full of restaurants & bars that serve high quality food at reasonable prices. Check them out – you won’t be disappointed.

Top Five Bars & Restaurants in Seville

Restaurant Palo Cortao

Palo Cortao offers a wide selection of elaborate and imaginative tapas – great quality for a reasonable price. If you want to try sherry, then this is the place to do it since they have over 80 sherries to choose from. There is a relaxed atmosphere with a beautiful contemporary interior. Located just around the corner from the Metropol Parasol (Las Setas), this place can get pretty busy. You might need to call ahead for a reservation. It’s one of our personal favorites and for sure one of the best restaurants in Seville.

Address: Calle Mercedes de Velilla 4



Modern interior of restaurant Zelai in Seville, Spain
Modern interior of restaurant Zelai

A stylish modern restaurant in Seville’s old town featuring a very special fusion of Basque, Asian and Latin cuisine. They offer very elaborate dishes using high-quality ingredients. Ask the waiter about the dishes of the day – these “out of the menu” options are always worth trying! It's another one of our personal favorites.

Address: Calle Albareda 22

Salsamento offers a unique contemporary take on the traditional corner shop, called an “abacería” in Seville. On sale is a nice selection of curated groceries for all budgets, while the bar offers local dishes with an innovative touch. They only use high quality produce, mainly from Andalusia but also other parts of Spain and Portugal.

Address: Calle Jerónimo Hernández 19



Tuna tapa at restaurant La Cata Ciega in Seville, Spain
Tuna tapa at restaurant La Cata Ciega

A very small but cozy contemporary tapas bar offering really good food at a great price. The tapas menu is small but has been meticulously designed and changes with the seasons. Try the marinated tuna with seaweed spaghetti and the poached egg with wild mushrooms in a sweet-wine reduction. They also have an excellent list of wines and sherries, featuring less commercial brands.

Address: Calle Zaragoza 15



Dish at restaurant Maquila in Seville, Spain
Cervecería Maquila

Cervecería Maquila features a great selection of beers, both local and foreign and they even brew their own – called SON. There are usually six beers on tap – that rotate constantly – as well as a comprehensive menu of beers by the bottle. The food is superb and each dish always has an original touch. It’s another one of the best restaurants in Seville.

More Restaurants in Seville


ConTenedor serves creative cuisine with an interesting combination of fresh ingredients. Their signature dish is duck with crispy rice and it will make your mouth water. Make sure you save room for desserts as well! The restaurant has friendly and impeccable service. It is a little bit more on the expensive side for Seville but it is still quite reasonable when you consider the quality that you are getting. We recommend making a reservation in advance.

Address: Calle San Luis 50


Open since 1904, this classic establishment features some unique traditional décor (walls covered in tiles advertising Sherry brands). It offers great montaditos (sandwiches), tapas and raciones. However, the star is the “chocolate con churros.” Although not the cheapest in Sevilla (4.3€), it is probably the best and definitely worth it.

Address: Calle Lineros 9


La Brunilda has some really great dishes that are cooked to perfection. There is a lot of choice on the menu and all at a reasonable price. Although it is one of the best restaurants in Seville, it does have a drawback – getting a table! The place is always super busy and they do not take reservations. They do however, have a waiting list and there are usually people in line when they open at 8:30pm. If you can get a table, then great, if not, check out Zelai or La Cata Ciega which are close by.

Address: Calle Galera 5


Located right next to the cathedral, this traditional establishment is popular among both visitors and locals. Apart from a great selection of tapas, their speciality and must-try is a local orange wine.

Address: Calle Mateos Gago 22
