We had breakfast here a couple of times, drinks often and tapas one evening. No complaints at all. Nice staff. Very relaxed. Open until very late. Serving food until very late.Little suntrap in the heart of the street.

Wandering around Santa Cruz early afternoon after a late night and a morning sightseeing. Stumbled across a small group of restaurants just before 2pm and liked the sound of "never try, never know" Started with a beer and red wine tinto before a selection of tapas - savoury then sweet. Good service and very busy by 230.

We enjoyed some tasty tapas here but the service was very slow and my girlfriend's food was forgotten and we had to ask for it twice!

Truly excellent spinach and garbanzo beans and also the ratatouille. Both are life-changingly good. The other dishes, not so much.

If You've tried other tapas places in Sevilla and you're not satisfied, this is the place to come even late at night to try some tipical andaluz cusine in small tapas version. Highly recommended. Good price&quality relationship.

Carmella does what it says on the tin. It is a locals bar with a few loud student types. The service is great and the tapas good value. Great for a stop off and a copa de Jerez.

I am a bit disqualified rating this cosy little restaurant on the quaint square right below our fantastic rooftop flat we rented for 28 days from Carmen, who is also the owner of this establishment, but I shall to be fair.... Good, tasty breakfast. Fantastic ratatouille! Nice garbanzo beans in sauce and many other unpretentious, but tasty tapas dishes. Plenty... More

Description
Carmela Bar is opened since 1994, it is an excellent reference to taste TAPAS, an Andalusian tradition.
It is located between the Santa Cruz and La Juderia area, a very distinctive place of the Centre of Seville. This is the perfect place to make a break and sit down in its great terrace near the most important monuments of our city: the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Giralda. It is also located very near La Carboneria, a famous place for live Flamenco music.
