Places to eat & drink in Sevilla, Spain

Multiple food items and a drink on a brown table inside a restaurant.

El Commercio

Kick off your tapas adventure at El Commercio. They are known for their churros and they servce the local beer in ice cold terra cotta mugs- just like the old days!

Patio San Eloy

Next stop, Patio San Eloy (the original on Calle San Eloy!) This bustling tapas bar is known for its energy and array of choices. Grab a couple tapas and a cana (small beer like a local) and take a seat up on the authentic steps.

La Fresquita

Venture to La Fresquita for a truly local experience. The place is tiny, but if you can't get a spot at the standing room-only bar, you can enjoy your tapas and drinks in the street. The inside is a shrine to Semana Santa (Holy Week) and it just oozes Sevilla's culture. Grab a tapa and Tinto de Verano and enjoy!

Bar Alfalfa

Bar Alfalfa sits on one of my favorite little squares and is muy typico of Seville. All of their tapas are awesome and you'll be surrounded by locals.

El Rinconcillo

This bar's claim to fame is that it's the oldest bar in Europe. It is so classic, filled with locals, and the tapas are awesome. Stand at the bar with a local sherry and watch the mesero slice the jamon behind the bar.

Tapas to try

  • Espinacas con garbanzos (spinach and garbanzo beans)

  • Salmorejo (Creamy gazpacho)

  • Churros

  • Jamon de Iberico (their famous ham!)

  • Cazon en adobo (marinated and fried dog fish)

  • Pringa montadito (little sandwich with pulled pork)

  • Croquettas

To drink

  • Canas (small beers- there's only one real type)

  • Cruz Campo or Tinto de Verano- a refreshing wine and club soda drink!)
