We were 80 on a cruise ship tour in Seville for the day, and stopped here for a planned lunch. It was billed as a tapas lunch, but it really was a lunch of successive courses, not tapas. Standouts were the tomatoes and creamed spinach....More

We stopped here for lunch as part of our tour and enjoyed a selection of tapas with buns, olives and wine. A very leisurely way to dine with one selection coming out for you to enjoy before the next one comes.

Stopped just for a drink but ended up ordering food as well. Good service, attentive but not fussy or rushed and the food was very tasty and slightly different selection of tapas from many of the other places we visited in the area.

For a restaurant that was not particularly too busy and with enough staff, the kitchen appeared to be a little unorganised. Waiters were not observant and made no attempt to engage in any conversation whatsoever. Not even a smile or a thank you. Menu was...More

We enjoyed dinner in the lively square here. Garlic soup was incredibly hot and I probably wouldn’t have it again but we both had steak and a bottle of red for our main which was good.

We went there to take dinner due to its unique location. Positive experience and nice place to do a quick stop while visiting the city center. Fallen in love with thec city! Hugh Woulfe

The tapas was largely fine, nothing to complain about except the price. A tourist hotspot though so I guess this is to be expected. Despite a grumpy waiter we were well waited on. A very forgettable experience.

Visited for a quick tapa. The menu is pretty traditional but all the tapas we had were extremely tasty and well prepared. The artichoke was full of flavour and the prawn tortillitas were amongst the best we ve tried in all Spain. Service was excellent....More

Allright but far from the best considering the price. The waiter was slightly arrogant, and some of the tapas tasted not great

One portion of melon with ham (average ham, not Iberico-Bellota) costs 15,00 euros and contains one thin slice of melon and a few grams of ham. What is claimed to be Provolone is actually tasteless, industrial, melted cheese and costs 12,27 euros.

Description
En 1844 el ilustre poeta y dramaturgo vallisoletano, José Zorrilla y Moral, se alojó en la Hostería del Laurel mientras escribió su obra más conocida “Don Juan Tenorio”. Se dice que gran parte de su inspiración para la creación de sus personajes y encuadre de la historia vino dado por aquellos que les rodeaban en aquellos momentos. En la obra, ambientada en la Sevilla de 1545, en los últimos años del reinado de Carlos I de España, La Hostería del Laurel es la taberna en la que Don Juan y Don Luis habían acordado reunirse transcurrido un año después de su apuesta, es donde se desarrolla casi todo el Acto I de la obra. Si visitas Sevilla, y aún más si lo haces en Noviembre, es de obligada cita esta taberna, antigua "casa de gulas", casas de comidas, que abundaban en Sevilla en el siglo XIX, y que hoy, con otro nombre, siguen llenando sus calles, y aún más en este mítico barrio de Santa Cruz. Bienvenidos a la Hostería del Laurel
