Best Traditional Restaurants in Seville

25 Nov 2019
When in Seville, do as the Sevillanos do. This is a safe bet whatever the weather, but it is particularly pertinent when it comes to conversations of the culinary variety. Food has been taken very seriously in these parts since forever, and Seville’s traditional restaurants are keeping the flame alive with aplomb. If you a little slice of Andalusia is your desire, get yourself to any of these spots with an empty stomach and an open mind.

El Pinton

Traditional food cooked by those who aren’t interested in merely mimicking the past, El Pinton isn’t your ordinary Andalusian restaurant. The gazpacho isn’t just gazpacho, it is bloody gazpacho, and the Iberian sirloin stuffed with mushrooms is about as succulent as life is going to get, from our point of view. The interior is plenty special as well, an opulent Andalusian patio just a few steps from the famous cathedral.

Las Golondrinas

Undoubtedly one of the most popular tapas bars in the city, Las Golondrinas epitomises everything we love about the vibrant Triana neighbourhood. Modern day luxury is eschewed in favour of embellishing the social side of food, and the excellent tapas dishes fly out of the kitchen here with all the intent of food that knows it is to be enjoyed as opposed to savoured. The decor is all Seville everything too, making Las Golondrinas a must-visit for anyone looking to find the gastronomic heart of this thrilling city.

Casa Ricardo

There is something truly magical about an old Andalusian restaurant with photographs filling every spare inch of space on the walls, taking up all the real estate that isn’t taken over by old bottles of wine from all over the region. Casa Ricardo is a window into restaurants of yesteryear, although that isn’t to say it has been left in the past ― the tapas selection is as toothsome as anywhere else in town. Food has been served here sine 1915, and we’re happy to bank on it being available here in 2115 too.

El Rinconcillo

Is it possible to talk about traditional food in Seville without referencing the oldest bar in town, the very first in a long line of fantastic restaurants? El Rinconcillo takes that cherry, having opened its doors to the hungry public for the very first time in 1670. That sort of history is nothing to sniff at, and the tapas remains as good as it did all the way back in the 17th century. It doesn’t get any more traditional than this.
