    Antigua Abacería de San Lorenzo

    Seasonal cuisine in an old grocery shop

    • Makanan

    The name of Seville's Antigua Abacería de San Lorenzo restaurant comes from the Spanish word for grocery – abacería – the shop that used to stand here. It maintains all the charm from its former incarnation, making it a 'must-visit' establishment. The food on offer is 100 percent traditional, with stews the star of the show – every day there is a different one.

    The other dishes on the menu also vary depending on the season. If you are lucky, your visit might coincide with the potaje de habichuelas (bean stew) or the asadura con papas chafadas (offal with mashed potatoes) tapa. As a curious detail, the restaurant has 9 different ways of preparing eggs, so choose whichever you like the best. If you have any doubt, go for the 'Lo que diga Ramón' ('Whatever Ramón Says') menu.

    • Mewah

    The Taberna del Alabardero is in a 19th-century manor house in Calle Zaragoza, located close to the city centre. With over 40 years behind it, this is one of the city's leading restaurants and is a boutique hotel with just 7 rooms and the home of the prestigious Escuela Superior de Hostelería de Sevilla catering college.

    The menu is an excellent combination of Andalusian tradition and a search for new, groundbreaking ideas, making this a restaurant of the highest category. It should be said that the restaurant is not suitable for all budgets. However, you could always try the lunchtime Menu of the Day, which is more affordable, and enjoy the same views of La Giralda. Many of Seville's best hotels are in this part of town.

    Eslava is one of Seville's most traditional restaurants. In the heart of the San Lorenzo neighbourhood, it invites you in to have tapas at the bar or pass through into the restaurant's dining room.

Deserving special mention is the sepia y algas con bechamel y tinta de calamar (cuttlefish and seaweed with béchamel and squid ink). Among the meat dishes, the costillas a la miel (honeyed pork ribs) is a house speciality.

    El Rincón de la Rosita is in the very heart of Seville, right next to the cathedral and La Giralda. This is a place to enjoy the good things of life with the finest flavours. Everything prepared in its kitchen is simply delicious. Among the people of Seville, it is considered to be one of the best restaurants in the city.

    Stews are its great speciality, although it is also famous for the fresh fish caught off the Huelva coast and landed at the port of Isla Cristina. We recommend you try the pastel de berenjenas con cabrillas (aubergine with snails), the fideos con almejas (noodles with clams) or the lentejas con chorizo (lentils with chorizo). For dessert, you can't beat the albóndigas de chocolate (chocolate balls) or the tarta de queso (cheesecake). El Rincón de la Rosita offers excellent value for money, and the portions are very generous. Rosita is one of those hostesses who makes sure that nobody who eats there leaves hungry.
