We went here for a few drinks and the owner was great. We didn't realize we needed to print boarding passes and we helped us out even though they we really busy. Lovely place for a drink too!

Staff are nice and chatty, the food is good. Some of it better (the burger) some of it not that good (foie gras). Went here twice, because it was convenient. Would probably go again, because it's actually good enough. What's keeping me from rating this place higher is that there are places with comprable prices, but much better food. With... More

We were lured into this restaurant and then suffered aggressive service, poor food ( paella made with turmeric 2 prawns a few shrimps and mussels. E 30, ). Charged for olives we didn't order. One of most expensive meals of our trip, and worst. Done!

We (a >60 couple) had a pleasant, too-big lunch one sunny afternoon in September. El Colmaito shares a plaza with another restaurant, in a quiet area near the main pedestrian streets. We had lots of Rueda, a cheese plate, tapas of duck (with Seville orange jam), choco (cuttlefish) with mint aioli, and small fried fish bites (pescaito frito), and then... More

I studied abroad in Sevilla and El Colmaito was our go to spot for the best tapas in the city. The owner is the best! He is extremely friendly and will provide some of the best hospitality you can find, almost as if you are a guest in his home. Definitely stop by if you are in the area, you... More

I discovered this place almost fifteen years ago, when I rented an apartment down the street and spent a summer in Seville. The food, service and owners are so magnificent I go back every time I go back to Sevilla! I'm not sure what others mean by touristy, since I've been all over Spain in all these years, and that's...

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner. He showed us many specialties dishes they serve. I was introduced to the chef he was very proud of. My wife and I had 1 Tapa. Risotto with mushrooms and duck. 4 Euros and fantastic. This might sound goofy but it's the best Bread we've had in Sevilla as well

Tapas are good (not very original) but the friendly waiter made the difference! The delicatesse shop that belongs to the restaurant is nice too!
