We went in the evening looking for somewhere to have dinner. It was absolutely heaving with people having drinks at the bar. We left as it didn’t seem to be the place to have a quiet meal.More

El Rinconcillo was our first Tapas bar for our honeymoon. We dropped off our bags at the hotel and wandered over during the lunch rush. It's hard to argue with a bar that opened in 1670. You have to go if you're in Seville, but...More

Description
Located on the Calle Gerona, El Rinconcillo has been serving up Spanish cuisine in Seville since 1760. This historic restaurant boasts a rustic-chic dining room that is dressed up in cosmopolitan clothes. With understated whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, chandeliers and fresh flower arrangements, El Rinconcillo attracts everybody from local celebrities to families who come to enjoy traditional tapas and Sunday meals, and the mosaic-tiled bar with wine barrel tables is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and mid-afternoon glasses of wine. The menu is an eclectic collection of tapas dishes, stews, seafood, meat and sweet flans for dessert, and you couldn���t find a more quintessentially Spanish eatery in Seville if you tried.
