The tapas was largely fine, nothing to complain about except the price. A tourist hotspot though so I guess this is to be expected. Despite a grumpy waiter we were well waited on. A very forgettable experience.

Visited for a quick tapa. The menu is pretty traditional but all the tapas we had were extremely tasty and well prepared. The artichoke was full of flavour and the prawn tortillitas were amongst the best we ve tried in all Spain. Service was excellent....More

Allright but far from the best considering the price. The waiter was slightly arrogant, and some of the tapas tasted not great

One portion of melon with ham (average ham, not Iberico-Bellota) costs 15,00 euros and contains one thin slice of melon and a few grams of ham. What is claimed to be Provolone is actually tasteless, industrial, melted cheese and costs 12,27 euros.

He's said to have averted one escapade by climbing out the front windows of the Hosteria Del Laurel. I wonder if they've ever performed the Opera here? I mean, in this square. On this visit, I just dropped by once for an afternoon beer, and...More

After walking a lot, this place was behind the Cathedral. It gave me time to have 2 "cañas" (glass of beer) while the talk about history. Is a cheap place, good to hang out.

As a rule, we don't eat at tourist areas whenever abroad and this Hosteria del Laurel proved worth every cent. The main entrance of this restaurant is on the side of the hotel which on a glance, it seems like a hole in the wall....More

En 1844 el ilustre poeta y dramaturgo vallisoletano, José Zorrilla y Moral, se alojó en la Hostería del Laurel mientras escribió su obra más conocida “Don Juan Tenorio”. Se dice que gran parte de su inspiración para la creación de sus personajes y encuadre de la historia vino dado por aquellos que les rodeaban en aquellos momentos. En la obra, ambientada en la Sevilla de 1545, en los últimos años del reinado de Carlos I de España, La Hostería del Laurel es la taberna en la que Don Juan y Don Luis habían acordado reunirse transcurrido un año después de su apuesta, es donde se desarrolla casi todo el Acto I de la obra. Si visitas Sevilla, y aún más si lo haces en Noviembre, es de obligada cita esta taberna, antigua "casa de gulas", casas de comidas, que abundaban en Sevilla en el siglo XIX, y que hoy, con otro nombre, siguen llenando sus calles, y aún más en este mítico barrio de Santa Cruz. Bienvenidos a la Hostería del Laurel
