Had a bad feeling when it was the only bar restaurant in Seville that tries to talk you into stopping. Only had a beer and a white wine, but clearly over charged. Left feeling ripped off. An embarrassment to a beautiful city.

Went there with my wife on a walking experience though Seville down town. I had a great time. Full of history. At least 170 years old of history has the palace. Tapas were good. Drinks we awesome and also a very nice atmosphere.

We were talked into stopping here for our evening meal.
We should have made up our own minds but the waiter seemed pleasant.
They didn't do tapas so we had to opt for a main meal.
The choice wasn't great but we chose paella and bacalao.
Paella was a messy plate of overcooked fish with some clams and mussels ( and broken shell pieces)
As for the cod bacalao small bits of battered fish that was too greasy and tasteless.
It must have been the worst food we have eaten since we have been in Seville.
We watched the waiter being bossed about by a rather fat obnoxious man who must have been the owner and ordering him to get passing tourists to eat there.
Like other members on here I wished I'd check the place out on TripAdvisor.
Don't be fooled into eating here.

We ate here last Wednesday and unfortunately it was our worst dining experience of our entire week in Seville. We stumbled across the restaurant by chance and were seduced by the offer of sitting outside. I just wish that we had read the reviews on here first. We ordered olives to start but the waiter informed us that they didn't have any olives left and suggested that we order the cheese/meat plate instead. At this point our menus had been taken away and so we couldn't see that the difference in price was huge. The olives cost just a few euros, while the cheese/meat plate was around 18 euros. We've had similar cheese/meat plates in Seville and this was definitely overpriced compared to the others - not a great start. For our mains, we ordered paella which was 20€ for 2 people. The paella arrived not in the usual pan, but instead had been served up in a messy pile on our plates. It wasn't particularly hot and the seafood was pretty scarce. When we got the bill we were horrified at the price of the cheese/meat plate which we'd been encouraged to order. This was our most expensive meal in Seville and also the worst unfortunately.
I have to agree with the other reviews; this is clearly a tourist trap and one to be avoided!

Shaky start - first two dishes we asked for were not available. But then chose swordfish and the tuna. Both were excellent - and huge! Waiter was Mohamed from Morocco - friendly chap. Told him we'd give him a name check! (each fish was EUR16)
