Seville might be one of Spain’s most feverish cities, but don’t make the mistake of assuming that this place is all fire and brimstone. There is all sorts of class here, this was once one of the world’s wealthiest cities after all, and many of the town’s restaurants sit snugly amongst the best in the country. Fine dining in a fine, fine place.
Sometimes you fall in love with a restaurant from the magic of its aesthetic alone. Oriza is one such place, with an interior to die for. The place is positively dripping with romance. The food is excellent to, thankfully, with a steadfast commitment to high quality local produce and technical excellence in the kitchen. The tapas is great and the larger meals are even better, especially if you happen to be a meat eater.
It might lead to prices being ramped up, but the Michelin Guide remains the world’s best bet when it comes to top tier fine dining. Abantal is one of the Michelin Star restaurants in Seville and it takes this prestigious position seriously, with none-more-professional service and a flawless interior. The food remains engagingly down to earth though, with classic ingredients shaken and stirred until previously hidden tastes make themselves known. This is fine dining as it should be.
With an unbeatable location next to the Guadalquivir, it is clear why Abades Triana is a popular restaurant for couples and singles alike. The Torre del Oro provides a stunning backdrop to some quite excellent food, dishes that cover both tapas and more extravagant options. The tasting menu is particularly toothsome. If you’re looking to wow a prospective partner (be they business or romantic), Abades Triana will get the job done.
