El Rinconcillo – Authentic

This small piece of history is considered to be one of the oldest drinking spots in Seville. Founded in 1670 by the De Rueda family, the friendly camareros ensure that both tourists and locals are well looked after, and the food, wine and beer do the talking for themselves.

This small piece of history is considered to be one of the oldest drinking spots in Seville.

The menu provides a fairly classic yet greasy tapas selection, and the waiters happy enough to help choose and explain in Espanish. We highly recommend the carillada, a typical dish of astoundingly succulent pig’s cheek meat. Also hot on the menu is the pavilla, bacaloa fish freshly dipped in batter, but to be frank these guys know what they’re doing so you can be fairly free when deciding.

The atmosphere is worth the visit alone – at any time of day (except of course during the siesta period) you will find lively discussions between camareros, tourists and Sevillanos alike over everything and anything. Although El Rinconcillo has become a bit of a tourist hot-spot, if your after a casual wining and dining experience then it is hard to beat.

SBT says wine on: Oloroso dulce.
