Best Restaurants
in Seville

Seville is an ancient city of winding streets that over the years have become home to an array of cafes, bars, restaurants, markets and Abacerías (small food shops with informal seating), serving a vast range of regional tapas dishes and Sherry. 

The dishes and ingredients of Seville are hugely influenced by their rich history - from the bitter Seville oranges introduced by the Moors, the almonds and saffron popularised by the Sephardi Jewish population to sweets and pastries made by nuns in the city's convents. 

Be prepared to eat late in Seville, and to slowly graze over a few drinks and good conversation - although there are definitely some fantastic, and slightly more formal restaurants for those who are after 3 courses. 

Take a look at our best places below.
