Right in the center of Seville, this busy but friendly restaurant serves some excellent selections of cheeses (four different plate options from four parts of Spain) and meats (ham, saugages, anything you like :-) No posh explanations but good pointers at what you might like by very helpful staff. We enjoyed the good Rioja wine and tah tomato salad that... More

Good food but service depends on who's working the tables. It was one of the few places I visited twice during my week-long visit to Seville (Andalusia). Their service is quick granted I ate there later than and earlier than peak times (first and second time respectively). On my second visit, the two ladies taking orders and dispatching the food...

I have bene there for a quick lunch and it has been a pleasant discovery from the tapas. I took a plate of mixed hams and a beer and IT was really good

We found this place as we walked towards the centre of Seville from our hotel. We stopped here nearly every day, on the way in or out. Breakfast was very tasty and extremely cheap, English Menu's were available. The majority of people in their seemed to be locals which is always a good sign

Lots of food items to choose from and cold beer cant beat that. Efficient staff appears like the locals live it too. Just a few rables outside but more jnside eith the doors open so you feel like you are outdide enjoying the great weather.

Make sure you stop at el Papelon for a authentically relaxed Sevilla tapas experience - wide choice of tapas and freshly prepared meats and cheeses, for a very honest price. The atmosphere felt relaxed yet lively and authentic yet modern and fresh. Will definitely come back any next visit to Seville.

Visit this charming place last weekend. Passed by with my friends and stopped for a little beer. Wrong thinking: stepped out 3,5 hours later. Friendly people behind the bar, good (variaty of) cheese and jamon and cheap bottles! of beer. Really enjoyed it here. A little bit out of the mid-center, but worth a short (or maybe a long) visit.

We stopped here for a drink and a couple of tapas before dinner on our first night in Seville. The beer is very cheap but we had a terrible experience with food. Ordered small dish of olives (which were fine) and a cheese foccacia (i.e. a toasted sandwich). When the latter arrived, we were shocked to find the bread and... More
