Vineria San Telmo
Vineria San Telmo is often mentioned as one of the best restaurants in the city, and justifiably so. Hidden behind the gardens of Seville’s Royal Alcazar, this restaurant was a pioneer in the early days of the modern tapas movement in Seville, and it’s staying power has to be credited to the creative menu that effortlessly combines cherished tradition with modern flare.
A perfect example of a traditional ingredient getting a modern update is the delicious crepe de morcilla, blood sausage from the north of Spain served in a light French crepe – delicious! Even more impressive is the fried octopus, one of the best gourmet taps in the city, served in a rustic style pan – perfect for sharing!
