Seville is a romantic and magical city in Spain that welcomes you with open warms. Enjoy al fresco dining along with some sangria and tapas. Traditional tapas in the Andalucían region of Spain consist of Espinacas con Garbanzos (spinach with chickpeas), Pescado Frito (fried fish), and more. And before you head home, don’t forget to pick up a bottle of Seville Orange Marmalade.
1. Bar Toro Toro (lunch, tapas, dinner)
A cute little restaurant that offers al fresco dining. Menu in English.
VERDICT: 4 / 5
This was the best meal in Seville with a few vegetarian/chicken options. In addition, the sangria was so incredibly good and fruity which was exactly what we needed in the blistering Seville heat. Definitely check out Bar Toro Toro which can’t be missed since it is so close to the main square.
Nice ambience at this pretty restaurant that unfortunately lacked vegetarian/fish/chicken options.
LOCATION: Calle Pastor y Landero 24, Sevilla
VERDICT: 3 / 5
Although this place was good, it was about a 5 minute from the El Arenal district and I don’t think it was exceptional. Let me also reiterate that my choices were very limited in Spain since I don’t eat red meat, however you may have better luck here if you eat red meat and diner here. You are better off considering a place in the heart of Santa Cruz or in El Arenal to avoid the extreme heat.
3. Horno San Buenventura (coffee & desserts)
An average coffee & dessert spot in Seville.
This café was alright, in my opinion, a bit too average for European standards. Since there are very few café options in the Santa Cruz district, Horno San Buenventura is quite popular amongst tourists. Furthermore, this cafe is a great late night hangout to people watch and just absorb the magic of Seville.
TELL ME: Have you been to Seville? If so, where did you eat? Did you enjoy the food?

The photos are beautiful, makes we want to jump on a plane and go right now! Thanks for sharing!
I'm so sad I won't be able to get to Seville on our trip next month...it looks gorgeous! What a beautiful hotel - the fountain alone is worth the bad water pressure. 🙂

I studied in Granada for six months last year and only made it to Sevilla once, but it's gorgeous! Unfortunately it rained most of the time I was in the city. The cathedral is amazing! The largest gothic cathedral in the world. The inside is so wonderful, I hope you're planning on going inside!
@Claire - food was good once I found the vegetarian/chicken stuff.
@Hilliary - I feel that way right now and I've already been there. Loved Seville.
@Ameena - wow, so you are going to Spain? That's awesome, we'll talk about it. I bet Barcelona is on your list.
@Roni - you won't believe this, but no I didn't go inside. 🙁 And I need to visit Granada.
