Fine Dining in Seville

Is there one restaurant in Seville I should try to get a reservation for?

  1. I like Enrique Becerra on c/Gamazo. Tiny street but well worth the hunt. I have eaten there about 10 times and the food is always great.

    1. Could you give an idea of the price range for dinner?

        Oh gosh, It's been 3 years since I was there last. I would say 80-100 usd for dinner (2 people), not including wine. That is starter, entree, dessert. Don't quote me on that, though.

        You can eat in the bar area also. They have a great grilled meat skewer (brochete i think it was called) that hangs on a hook about 12 inches off the plate. Great! And a raw (I am going to guess cod) sliced so thin you could read the paper through it, layed out on top of it's roe, and drizzled with lemon and olive oil that makes my mouth water when I see it in the window. These were more like starters that you could share in the bar area.

        I guess that cancels out the fine dining idea if you eat in the bar though. Oops.

      2. Sent them an e-mail to get a reservation yesterday and am waiting to hear back---thanks for the info!

          i just did the same thing for when my parents come to visit me here. I walk by this place all the time.

          thanks for the recommendation

          1. re: dogfacedboy

            i'm trying to do the same for my trip next month...thanks for the recommendation!

            do you any of you have specific dishes that you recommend? thanks in advance!

        2. Not fine dining, but great Tapas, was at a place called Du Plex. Really wonderful place. We searched and searched for it on our last night but couldn't find it again (after walking in circles for an hour in Old Town).

          Worth searching for.

          1. It's about 20km outside, but in Sanlucar El Mayor, la Alqueria in the Hotel Hacienda Benazuza serves 'El Bulli's Greatest Hits". It's a Michelin ** and if you like modern (as opposed to traditional) food I thoroughly recommend it.
            There's a post below specifically on this place

              Very good recommendation, not certain how much a taxi will cost but it should not be a large amount. We ate there last September and had one of our top 10 meals.

              It Kitchen is run by Rafa Morales who I think was number two to Adria at El Bulli. I also understand that when El Bulli is closed (only open for six months a year) Ferran can often be found in the the kitchen here.

              If you can't secure a booking at El Bulli this is a great way to see what all he fuss is about.

                Ditto to what PhilD has said-the Hacienda Benazuza has been my El Bulli consolation prize. Elegant setting, well worth the taxi ride.

                1. re: Maribel

                  I just got an email back from the hotel and the restaurant will be closed until February 28th. =( Do you guys have any recommendations for a nice dinner in Seville? Will be there with my partner in two weeks. Also, if anyone has any recs for Jerez/Cadiz, that would be great too. Thanks in advance!

                  1. re: datrojanhogan

                    For a nice dinner in Seville, I would head to Poncio in Triana
                    ( or to the romantic, Basque style Egaña Oriza on San Fernando (

                    In Jerez I would search out Mesa Redonda on Manuel de Quintana 3 (has a Campsa sol, like a Michelin star) and also the terrific, legendary tapas bar, Juanito ( on Pescadería Vieja 8.

                    In Cádiz I wouldn't miss El Faro on San Féliz 15 (

                    1. re: Maribel

                      I would add a vote for "Juanito" in Jerez - a good traditional tapas bar. Look out for the specials.
