Where to Eat in Seville

where to eat in seville

I've always believed Seville to be the most beautiful city in Spain. However, I had only been there once when I was 6. This year my fiance and I decided to celebrate our anniversary spending 48 hours in this stunning city.

Today I want to share with you a round-up of the best places were we ate. All of the places we tried serve traditional Spanish dishes. We had salmorejo and gazpacho (recipe here)  every day, the best way to beat the scorching heat. Most restaurants were chosen from Pinterest. My secret to organize a trip is creating a Pinterest board. It serves both as photography inspo and it has proved the best way to find the cutest little spots and beautiful restaurants. Fortunately, all of them turned to be a wise choice. Without further ado, here's the list.

Near Seville's cathedral is El Pinton. It's one of those places that make you fall in love as soon as you walk in. Whoever decorated this place has impeccable taste. If you are going on a weekend I advice you to book a table. Even though my trips are super organized I don't like to book restaurants in advance. Lots of things can come up and you never know if you are going to make it on time. We got there early but they told us it was fully booked. Luckily there was a free tiny table for two that had been waiting for us ;)

The menu is a modern take on traditional dishes. Their specialties are tapas and cocktails. We started with gazpacho and salmorejo and had cod fritter and cod with quinoa and sweet potatoes for seconds.

Advertised as a "pleasure for the senses", this market is a new and singular open spot in a strategic location. It is one of the best culinary, leisure and cultural experiences you can have in Seville. A spacious place with 20 stands that will meet the demanding needs of pleasure-seekers. You will find all kinds of tapas and gourmet dishes. Grab your favorites, order a Cruzcampo beer and enjoy your meal on one of the many tables available at the center of the market.

Its distinctive architecture is highlighted by the colorful food offered in the market. The building is classified as a World Heritage Historical Site. Eiffel was responsible presumably for the design of the market, constructed in 1861 by Portilla and White metallurgical factories and finished 22 years later in 1883.

We arrived at the market around noon. However, after a copious breakfast in the hotel we weren't hungry yet so we just shared a flat bread with veggies and jamon from the stand pictured below.

Established in 1670, it is the oldest restaurant in Spain. It's a classic for tapas and traditional Spanish dishes. We arrived at El Rinconcillo (Spanish for the little corner) at 2pm which is Spain's lunch time. This time we weren't so lucky and there were no tables available. The place was swarming with both locals and tourists. People were even enjoying their tapas in the street. Their staff offered the possibility of eating at La Trastienda del Rinconcillo which is close by. I cannot say if the menu is the same but the food was good. Unfortunately, I'm unable to give a review of El Rinconcillo, but it's worth visiting because of its ambiance and classical character.

This is hands down the most beautiful hotel I've ever seen. Hotel Alfonso XIII is today one of the most prestigious hotels worldwide. It is ideally located in the center of Seville, next to the Reales Alcazares and the Cathedral, in the historic neighborhood of Santa Cruz. Pop in for an aperitif or a sweet treat. It's pricey but isn't it worth it to be surrounded by such beautiful architecture?

Another traditional place which is close to calle Sierpes, the city's shopping hub. Open since 1930, it serves one of the best ice-creams in the Andalusian city.
