Straight forward and engaged service with lovely food. No fuss and importantly no menus with a flag saying which language. Food was lovely and as you would expect. We shared great seafood paella and teenage boys had traditional pork dish and chicken. Relaxed, honest food and great matador atmosphere.

Do not be enticed by its appearance and location of this restaurant. After several great Tapa type meals we decided that we would like a full restaurant meal and this one looked lovely on a small square full of Orange trees. On entering the resturant there were three waiters and the resturant was nearly empty. We were waved toward any... More

We ate here on our first night in Seville on our first trip to Andalusia. Couldn't have been better. The waiter helped us with the menu and gave us a quick Spanish lesson. The food was as memorable as the Spanish was useful for the rest of the trip. Great paella.

I loved it, the paella very good, and the fish I tried was just right and very good. We also liked the sangria.

While this restaurant is located in a beautiful square we were made feel very uncomfortable on our visit. After ordering a drink our waiter DEMANDED that we order food. We ordered something to share and the waiter promptly snatched the cutlery from our table and gave a very aggressive Spanish response. My advice admire the interior and avoid.

We ate at this restaurant this week for the first time. Very pleasant setting Able to sit in or outside. Service was excellent as was the food. We did get the wrong dessert, so double check the waiter understands you, but it was still very nice.

Lovely decorations encourage the visitor to try this restaurant. Food was delicious as was the sangria. But the decorations in the courtyard, make the visit worthwhile. We came near the end of the lunch period, so not crowded and service was quick.

Instead of tapas we decided to have a paella on our last night in Seville. We came upon this restaurant situated in a lovely square and so headed off in the evening with great expectations. Our food was average and the paella was overdone. The waiting staff were surly at best and quite unresponsive. Our table was on the corner... More
