Food and drinks in Sevilla

Tapas: “snacks, canapés or finger food” originated in Spain. I personally think tapas should be the only food you eat, ever. They’re small, usually very cheap yet delicious, meals and you can get a couple different things without having to pick just one. That’s probably my favorite part about Spanish food. I never know what to pick when reading a menu, so being able to pick more than one dish sounds like heaven to me.

When in Sevilla, eating was probably my favorite moment of the day. I stumbled upon so many wonderful places so I wanted to share my 3 favorite restaurants with all of you.

// Mercado Lonja del Barranco // Calle Arjona | S/N

This place is BY FAR my favorite market I’ve ever discovered. Located right next to the river it has a beautiful location. You can either eat inside or outside, both are equally as lovely. You can eat some of the most delicious meat, seafood, cheese, desserts & vegetables dishes. There were so many different stands I must have walked around this place at least 5 or 6 times. Do I get to mini burgers, or do I get a shrimp salad? Do I go for a cheese plate with a glass of wine or do I eat the traditional patatas bravos with a glass of sangria? DO YOU SEE MY PROBLEM?


The tapas dishes are a little bit more expensive but the food you get is hands down some of the best food I feel like you can find in Sevilla. I know, I’m a little too enthusiastic but God, I love this market.

We ended up going there on two different days so I got 3 dishes in total. Prices of the dishes: €3-€4. I got a glass of sangria every time and that was only €2,5!

Definitely go visit their official website and read all about the story of this place. Oh and make sure you have some cash because some stands don’t accept cards if the total amount is less than €6!

// Bar Estrella // Calle de la Estrella, 3

One of my other favorite little restaurants in Sevilla is called Bar Estrella. We almost literally stumbled upon this place when walking towards Aire de Sevilla (incredible arabic baths). Their menu looked great so we had a late dinner here after visiting the Arabic baths. I ordered two dishes (pimiento piquillo relleno de bacalao/cod-stuffed piquillo peppers and pincho de pollo a la plancha/grilled chicken brochette). I paid €6,20 for both dishes… It’s almost a joke. And the portions were HUGE. The service wasn’t perfect, a little friendlier would have been great, but the food was so incredible I didn’t really care about that minor detail.

// Yamazaki // Plaza de la Encarnación

I’m a sushi lover, a massive sushi lover. I could eat it all day, every day and I’d totally be fine with that. The exterior and the terrace of Yamazaki looked so great we just had to have dinner here. The lady serving us was a gem, really nice and helped us out as much as possible in Spanish. I ordered 3 different things, because I was starving. Every sushi roll I had was so good. Very reasonable priced for the quality of the food you get, the amount of food & the service. I definitely recommend going here if you’re hungry & are craving sushi. You can combine grabbing lunch here and visiting the Metropol Parasol, also known as the Giant Mushrooms, the biggest wooden structure in the world.

Are you someone who will try out new things when traveling or do you play it safe and order things you already know?
