The food wasn’t terrible but overpriced for what it was. However, the service was atrocious. We weren’t expecting silver service by any means but the waiter made us feel like we were completely unwelcome despite all our best efforts to use our limited Spanish. We...More

Traditional old school tapas bar worth a visit, food doesn't look fancy like some more modern ones however tastes great.

Nice setting, photo worthy. The staff seem to look down on tourists, but that's probably the same gene as the Parisian Garcons, all looking bored with your request. For the Ambiance: yes. For the tapas; we have had much better at other bars

A bar that dates back to 1670. We popped in for pre dinner glasses of wine. Leaned against the bar like the locals. Atmospheric place to share a glass or two.

Fantastic ambience in the oldest tapas bar of Sevilla. They write your bill on the table with old - fashion chalk. The staff is very friendly and are all seniors. Another guy is slicing jamon behind the bar with preciseness of a doctor.

Located on the Calle Gerona, El Rinconcillo has been serving up Spanish cuisine in Seville since 1760. This historic restaurant boasts a rustic-chic dining room that is dressed up in cosmopolitan clothes. With understated whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, chandeliers and fresh flower arrangements, El Rinconcillo attracts everybody from local celebrities to families who come to enjoy traditional tapas and Sunday meals, and the mosaic-tiled bar with wine barrel tables is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and mid-afternoon glasses of wine. The menu is an eclectic collection of tapas dishes, stews, seafood, meat and sweet flans for dessert, and you couldn���t find a more quintessentially Spanish eatery in Seville if you tried.
