Let´s begin with tapas. There are many restaurants that often appear on lists of top places to dine in Seville. Many of these can be a treat for the eyes too. Seville is home to a number of art-restaurants. These have dining rooms with different artworks, often designed by local artists. You can also book rooms privately for groups. You can choose from a selection of tapas and other typical dishes. These include delicately roasted meats and fishes. These are accompanied with  local vegetables and cheeses.

The key focus in many tapas bars in Seville is organic and seasonal produce. Many of these restaurants also retain a distinctly Sevillian flair. There are many  buildings that date from the 16th century in the city centre. Most of these are designed in the traditional Andalucian style. Foodwise, they serve tapas as well as traditional Andalucian dishes. Many also rely on recipes passed down through generations.

There are also many tapas bars which are slightly more modern. They have largely become famous for reinventing tapas. Complementing this, they often have a fabulous selection of wines. The key for many of these bars has been a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients. Many modern and older tapas bars source their produce locally. Indeed, in Seville you can be sure you are sampling the best. Certain tapas bars even have their own garden. So, the distance from ground to plate is minimal!  For this reason, modern tapas bars have become a hangout popular with people on a foodie tour in Seville.
