This is a tapas bar where mostly locals eat. As a consequence, English is little spoken so each of our tapas dishes were a little 'surprise' when served. The lady behind the bar did her best to translate for us, but her English was very limited despite being the best English speaker there.

I am not convinced the TripAdvisor map is exact here, but the bar is certainly at this junction on the right, far-side walking away from the river / bridge (Pte Isabell II). The TripAdvisor photos inside the bar also match our experience.

The night before we visited just for drinks, but the food looked so good that we returned the next evening.

We had four excellent dishes, seafood croquettes, ham croquettes, pigs' cheeks and pork sirloin. Each dish was 3 to 3.5 Euros.

Will definitely return on a future trip to Seville.

Recommended by hotel reception went early managed to get a table in the restaurant next door to the bar. Very good value and excellent tapas a bottle of wine not expensive
12 euros for a nice white wine. Food and service great. Would have liked to go into the bar for the food but was crowded even at the early time.

Drank & waited in the tiny & crowded bar, before realising that the restaurant itself was next door! Managed to secure a table at 10.30pm after some excellent customer care from the maitre d. The octopus was the highlight.

Blanca Paloma was recommended to us by the front desk person at our hotel. I always take hotel front desk reservations lightly because depending on where you are, they may be receiving a kick back. But this recommendation was a winner. This place is in the neighborhood called Triana outside the main center of Sevilla. Its unassuming and when you walk in, a little confusing because its all service from the bar but with table seating. We got a table pretty quickly and started ordering with the help of the bartender (who was awesome) He recommended the hamburgesa de gambas. I was skeptical and thought he was recommended it to the americans, but boy am I glad we listened to him. It was hall of fame. everything else was also delicious, the staff very friendly. Loved this very spanish experience. Unlike many places in the centro, we didn't notice anyone speaking english.

This was seriously the best food we've had since we've been on this trip to Spain (been multiple times in the past). The prices were decent, the service was excellent and the food was just exception. We had a revuelto de patatas con jamón (scrambled egg with potatoes and Spanish ham), un queso de cabra gratinado con frambuesa y nuez (a wheel of soft goat cheese covered in a raspberry sauce and walnuts), y gambas al ajillo (a steaming dish of shrimp cooked in olive oil and minced garlic. All to die for with very reasonably priced wine. I'm just glad this is near our lodging so we can return.
