Restaurants in Seville
If you are looking for good food (delicious tapas and Catalan dishes), Seville is the perfect place for that. The kitchen of Seville is varied, earthy, simple and with pure flavours. There is a wide range of restaurants and the Sevillians eat a hot meal twice a day. The first meal is an extensive lunch between two and four o'clock, followed by, of course, the siesta. Dinner, which is a lighter meal, takes place between 9 and 11:30 in the evening.
Tapas are very popular in Seville and are on every menu. You can order these small, tasty snacks at any hour of the day in one of Seville's many tapas bars. Tapas are often accompanied by a Spanish wine and it is customary to share them with your company. Want a larger portion of tapas? Then you order a "racion".
Tip 1: A fun activity in the evening is this tapas tour where you are taken to a number of typical Sevillian tapas bars. A local guide provides fun information about tapas and life in Seville.
Tip 2: El Rinconcillo is a historic tapas bar in Seville. El Rinconcillo is considered the oldest bar in the city, with a history dating back to 1670. A very atmospheric place to try tapas.
Many restaurants and cafés are located near the Cathedral of Seville in the Santa Cruz district; these restaurants, however, are very touristy and pricy. For cheaper and delicious restaurants, you are better off in the Triana and Macarena districts, two working-class quarters that are popular with the locals. Also the restaurants often offer a cheaper "Menu del Día".
Activities - Food & Nightlife
Best nightlife in Seville
Seville has a wide range of cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs, discos, cinemas and theaters. Sevillians start their evening out in a bar with "copas", or a drink with friends. For both tourists and locals, the Santa Cruz district is a great place for starting your evening out. From 1 a.m. onwards, the residents go to the discotheques, and it is not until around 2 a.m. that they begin to fill up and continue to do so until dawn.
Calle Betis is a street with some discos (across the river in the Triana neighborhood). Also around the squares of Alameda de Hercules and Alfalfa you will find several clubs and discotheques. In summer there are also open-air discotheques and bars on the banks of the Guadalquivir River; ideal with the summer temperatures, but a lot more pricy than the nightlife in the rest of Seville.
