On arrival, the ambience in the restaurant seemed very nice. Thankfully my wife and I selected the smaller of the two tapas set menus. Once the food started to arrive, the atmosphere started to change. Some of the food tasted like it had been prepared...in the hours if not days before. The food was average at best and for some of the tapes courses, that's being very generous. The service was good but the food really let this restaurant down. A real shame.......More

Booked this place for my dads 70th birthday we all decided to go for the tasting menu & 3 of us went for the wine pairing. In my experience wine pairing you would normally get a small wine/drink that complements each dish…… but this wasn’t...the case we had about 4 small drinks over the 10 courses. Service was mediocre, the food wasn’t amazing some of the dishes were warm but not hot! Totally not being fussy as we have eaten in Michelin star places & Michelin rated of which I believe this restaurant is ‘Michelin rated’ Overall is was a very underwhelming experience. Very sad as it ruined my dads birthday. Not worth the money, go to a proper Spanish restaurant in the old quarters!More

This was our first meal in Seville so we had no particular expectations, but we liked the whole experience a lot. We took the shorter tasting menu with matching wines and found both aspects full of interesting surprises. The service was very competent, friendly and...well-paced. I agree that efforts at English were sometimes hard to understand but I feel ashamed not to manage more Spanish and – unlike some reviewers here - feel I have no right to expect English to be spoken at all! In any case the staff were always charmingly content to repeat anything that we struggled with.More

Nice place but tasting menu was disappointing due to lack of taste in most menus. Staff out of control where too busy to take care of guests. In total a disappointing evening. We visited another restaurant with a completely different standard and that was what...we expected from a Michelin Guide place.More

I went to Ispal Restaurante for lunch. Beautiful restaurant with a truly amazing, reasonably priced 10 course meal. The servers were very efficient with the Head Waiter explaining every dish. I actually had the part of the dining room all to myself which I loved....The dishes were beautifully prepared and beautifully presented. I would definitely go again when I visit Sevilla. My favorite was the deer but i enjoyed every dish.More

We went there for a lunch and choose smaller menu version with no wine tasting (I've read it is not worth it). We really did enjoy the food, the way it was presented was lovely and surprising - candle which turns out to be a...butter was great!. We've expected better design from such an expensive place - unfortunately it was just nice, toilets ugly, nothing like on the photos on the website, they are so many cheaper places with much much better design. Also big issue - waitress who served food for us barely knew English, we couldn't understand her as she had such a strong accent - luckily we had a list of food prepared earlier - without it we would have no idea what we eat. We would not go back there but still it was a lovely lunch and we do not regret going thereMore

Unfortunately, my family did not enjoy Ispal. For a high end restaurant with very high prices, the food should have been exceptional and memorable. We did the smaller tasting menu with wine pairings. First two dishes were good and then things got progressively worse. The...shrimp with rabbit kidneys was inedible and it actually made one member of our party nauseous. In fairness, her digestive system may just not agree with kidneys, but none of us enjoyed the flavors of this dish. The wines were very average. The waitstaff was professional and service was good. However,if restaurant wants to cater to international clientele, the waiters need to speak a little better English. I stopped listening to dish descriptions because I just couldn’t understand the English. The decor was nice, but inconsistent throughout the space. Parts of the area appeared unfinished. Again, a high end restaurant should also bring exquisite decor to the experience. We had high expectations going in based on most TripAdvisor reviews but after the experience I completely agree with the small number of 1 and 2 star reviews.More

The restaurant offers a 'Taste Sevilla Menu'of 9 or 12 courses. All very nice full of flavour and attention of the staff with nice explanations.

Visited this weekend for my husband's birthday and had a great evening. The 9-course tasting menu was plenty and the wine flight was good too. Food was delicious - we especially liked the Green Tomato Gazpacho and the Grilled Deer. Located down toward the Plaza...de Espana, it's roughly a 15-20 minute walk from the Cathedral if you're planning to walk. Would definitely recommend.More

Don't think there is a set dress code but would definitely go smart casual. Both the males wore shorts and shirts and didn't look out of place

I’d say it is fairly limited but you’ll find something very delicious to eat. The theatre in this restaurant is brilliant. Big reveals and smokey deserts. Try the special butter for your bread. Have a good time
