...and you can read my take on Granada's best bars at http://www.spain-holiday.com/Granada-province/articles/tapa-ten-the-10-best-tapas-bars-in-granada
Viriato Gastrobar is a pub located in the heart of Seville. It has the finest beers and wines, with an original and exciting food menu from tapas to their famous Viriato Burguer. They have quickly built a reputation for their friendly and relaxed atmosphere, bringing together an interesting and varied mix of people.
Open every day at one pm, they serve great food until one in the morning.
They have a wide selection of imported beers such as Guinness and Leffe,they serve the most reputable organic Spanish wine estates and excellent choice of Whiskys, Rums, Gins, and Liqueurs.
This Bar offers cultural and sport programmes, on Mondays they host film night ,on Tuesday is quiz night and they show all major sporting events in high quality on big screens including football (La Liga, The English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, International matches), rugby (Heineken Cup, Six Nations, The Championship), Formula 1, and much more.
Nice post Robin, and fantastic looking tapas.Just love Sevilla. A great tapa city as is Granada,Logroño (one of my favourites),Pamplona.Leon and Bilbao. They all have their unique character
I have to echo what Christopher says. Firstly an enjoyable read (and I open anything which appears to be a list with caution!), and secondly it also makes me want to jump on the next plane! Last year I found tapas in Sevilla (and I think we ate nothing else from memory) delicious, original and fairly cheap. The following week in Barcelona disappointed on each count in comparison! Since the prices compared to where I live in the Canary Islands, and bearing in mind that IVA is a part of the price, I think, whereas here we have IGIC at only 5% that makes the price even better.
A great list. I've been eating tapas in Seville for ten years now, and think you've made some great choices, especially Bar Alfalfa, my neighborhood hangout of choice, and the crazy Garlochi. But where was Eslava, which is generally held to have the best tapas in town??
Robin, Casa Roman sounds good, and I love the fact that they have the hams hanging overhead. Bar Alfalfa sounds like a real neighborhood place. These seem like some great places to check out.
Thanks for this list! When in Seville, my Southern American mind couldn't wrap itself around such small plates of food! Now that I'm back in DC, I've been to quite a few tapas bars and enjoyed myself. Go figure!!!
I guess these places are not food destinations but I am sure they are full od caracter and locals. I don't now why you write a post like this when I am on a diet. Espinacas con garbanzos, mmmmmmmm.
Great suggestions, Robin! Hopefully we'll be back in Spain sometime soon and can try these places out!
Awesome roundup! I love the custom of having tapas with each drink and going to a few different bars to try each one's offerings... ~Andrea.
Really appreciate your input here Karen. I wanted to create a top ten based purely on personal experience so I did not research previous lists or reviews. I think it's evident from the comments on your fb page that my list is not that of a resident! However I do get to Sevilla as much as I can and will be back there in a few weeks, sure to check out Eslava, Yebra, Las Salas. I was very happy to see from the comments on your page that despite the omissions folks thought well of the list :)
Would have to disagree with the comment that Los Coloniales is over rated though!
