Tapas Restaurants Around Seville

Overview

Ok, all throughout Spain there are tapas (small appetizers) bars in every city each full its own unique and delicious tapas. Seville happens to be full of them and I loved every minute. The Triana section of Seville, the night time hotspot, is loaded full with tapas bars. But some of the best can be found on the small, intertwining streets that run through Seville like as series of veins. Here, the best deals and biggest varieties can be found with the tables full of locals, unlike the touristy restaurants scattered about near the sights. One place was so good but for the life of me, I don't know what one of the items was. But that is how it should be; exploration is the only to know if you like it....Read More

After a dropping our stuff off at the hostel and a quick shower, my girlfriend and I were in desperate need of food (we had been traveling for 16 hours with missed flights and trains). The guy at our hostel suggested the Triana area for some good tapas and drinks, so off we were. All along Calle de Betis, there were tapas restaurants and bars every couple of feet between Isabelle II Bridge and the Plaza de Cuba. One of the first that we found was T de Triana. It was attractive to us because the tables were outside along Calle de Betis and allowed us to witness the going-ons the street had to offer. This being our first experience with Seville’s amazing food and drinks, we went ...Read More

Now finding this little hole in the wall was a complete accident, but it was the kind of accident that I wish I could make over and over. This place was amazing. After getting lost on some of the tight, twisting vein-like side streets of Seville, we emerged onto a plaza where there were two restaurants that seemed to be fighting for the very little open space for the tables. We choose the Las Escobas because of the deal that they were boasting on the sign out; five tapas for 8.50 euros. Not a bad deal and since we had been walking around in what seemed to be circles, lunch sounded like best idea. We parked ourselves, ordered two Sangria’s and the tapas special (not even knowing what the d...Read More

After getting turned away at a Flamenco bar because it was sold out, we, again, got lost on the side streets of Seville and came across a little tapas bar that was screaming to us. The reason it was screaming was because the bar next door had flamenco music being played by the patrons and the music was flowing endlessly out into the street and Dona Lina’s was right next door, so why not, right?After a day of Sangria, my night needed to filled with some Spanish beer, so we ordered up a couple of Cruz Campos form our non English speaking waiter and proceeded to peruse the menu. Unfortunately for us (since we can’t really understand Spanish) there was no English menu, so we shot from the hip with...Read More

After trying one tapas bar, not too far away from here, we decided to come back to try Casa Placido. When we were here earlier, there were large crowds waiting for an open table at Casa Placido, so it seemed like a good place to hit up.We weren't particularly hungry, but a nice snack sounded like a great idea, so we went with a couple of assorted tapas. We ordered the potatoes, a weird corn dish (cold corn with a vinagrette sauce of some kind), a phenomenal chicken dish and this strange steak dish. I don't really know what most of it was, but that is half of the fun, isn't it? The one thing that I found great here was the sangria. Their stuff wasn't too sweet or too strong tastin...Read More
