CITY GUIDE

Where to stay

PALACIO DE VILLAPANES

Martina is a friend of mine and one of the best hotel manager I know.

Contemporary decoration in an ancient Palace in the heart of Séville.
Go there for the entrance and the interior patio.

If you have the chance to stay there, book one of the suites because of the impressive ceiling height.

€€€

ONE SHOT PALACIO CONDE DE TORREJON

THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY IN SEVILLE.

This 4 stars hotel is perfectly situated in the Alameda neighborhood. It offers great rooms and lots of charms.
For breakfast, there is plenty of places around in Calle Feria because theirs is very blah.

€€

MERCER HOTEL

My favorite hotel in terms of decoration.

Minimalist design in an old Palace in Arenal. Close to Plaza de Toro and Guadalquivir River, it is a great place to start your discovery of the city.

€€€

ALFONSO XIII

The most luxurious Palace of Séville.

Built in 1927 for the Iberamerica exposition, it is a typical yet very classic Andalusian architecture. The interior patio is a must see!

€€€

RADISSON COLLECTION HOTEL MAGDALENA PLAZA

Best localisation according to me with the Mercer Hotel because close to the real city life.

The comfort of the room is spectacular. And the view from the top room a must.

 

€€€

PLACIDO Y GRATA HOTEL BOUTIQUE

A Boutique Hotel with a scandinavian vibe.

Great interior patio for lunch, and a coffee shop which remind me places in Stockholm.
It also has an interesting shop/restaurant across the street.

 

€€

Where to eat

LA BARRA DE CAÑABOTA

One of my favorite restaurant!

More laid back and better value for money than her big sister Cañabota.
Have a sit at the bar and enjoy great seafood prepared in front of your very eyes in the open kitchen.
Short but great wine and Champagne selection.

€€

LA ISLA

The best fish soup I had in my entire life! (only in wintertime)

Try also their turbot. Service could be a little uptight but always perfect. Book in advance a table on the street. Amazing wine list.

€€€

MARIATRIFULCA

A table at the Mirador is an experience by itself!

Classic Andalusian food with a twist.

Book a month in advance for a table at the Mirador. Otherwise at the bar. The other tables aren’t worth it.

€€€

CASA OZAMA

For interior design lovers.

In a former 1919 Flamenco house, go there for the amazing decoration, the garden and the friendly staff. Food is ok but overpriced for Séville.
Book ahead.

€€€

CASA ANIBAL

To see and to be seen.

Opened in November 2021, I feel at home every time i go there as we share the same taste in interior design.

Lack of consistency of the food but excellent service.

€€

MAQUIAVELO

Tacky but surprisingly very good food.

I wasn’t a big fan of the concept at first: kind of dated Saint Tropez restaurant full of professional footballers and influencers. But the food is very good and great professional service.

Go there to see and be seen.

€€€

ENEKO BASQUE

The restaurant of the Radisson Plaza de Magdalena.

Great food and atmosphere for a Basque cuisine

Nice Terrasse during daytime for lunch

 

€€€

MANOLO LEON’S HOUSE

The instagram restaurant by definition.

Very charming interior patio and winter garden. Only tourists. Great food and generous portions. A bit pricey.

€€€

LA CHAMPANERIA DE FERIA

You like oysters? You like Champagne? Then this is your place!

Recommended by my friend Antonio Bellido. You can trust him every time he recommends a place!

€€

LA QUINTA BRASERIA

Steak house with a nice atmosphere.

Situated in a sumptuous 1900’s house, you’ll find a good selection of meat a la brasa.

€€

FATOUCH

A Lebanese restaurant that opened recently on Calle Feria.

Great atmosphere at night. Cocktails and food are great.

The design of the restaurant is also a great exemple on how to make a statement on a budget.

PLACIDO Y GRATA

Scandinavian vibes meets Andalucian architecture

A recently open hotel restaurant in a former 1880’s Palacio, it is a hybrid concept with a coffee shop, a delicatessen store and a nice restaurant with an inventive yet non pretentious food.

LA CHALA

On a lovely place under the trees near the Museo de Bellas Artes.

Relaxed restaurant perfect during summer nights.
A selection of sophisticated tapas at reasonable prices.

€€

LA TIZNA GRILL

GASTROBAR VIBES IN VIAPOL.

NOT MY FAVORITE AREA TO GO OUT BUT THIS NEW RESTAURANT OFFERS SOMETHING QUITE FRESH.

SOME TIMES TOO MUCH INFORMATIONS IN YOUR PLATE BUT THE EXPERIMENTATION DESERVES A THUMB UP.

EL RINCONCILLO

The oldest restaurant in Séville, built in 1670. 

Come early to eat at the bar. If queue worth the wait.
The salmorejo and the tapa de lomo de cerdo are to die for!

€€

LAS COLUMNAS

Typical tapas bar in Alameda de Hercules

Not the fanciest place ever with its plastic tables and waiters close to retirement but very good value for money, homemade food and the best Presa Iberica i’ve had in Seville.
I go there at least once a week

DONAIRE AZABACHE

My favorite Sevillan breakfast.

In the hyper center, try their freshly squeezed orange juice, manchado coffee and Bellota tostada: the perfect recipe to start the day!

FERIA 83

For their Croissants.

Brunch place full of hipsters next to Mercado de Feria. Strange opening hours and very long service but once there, totally worth it for a nice breakfast or late lunch.

BODEGUITA REYES ANTONIO ROMERO

A Bodega style bar near the cathedral.

Laid back yet chic atmosphere between locals in suit working in the neighborhood. You will feel like a Sevillan there.

BODEGA SAN RAFAEL LA PAÑOLETA

The real bodega!

At 5km of Séville, next to a busy roundabout, the best food I had in a bodega.

It is everything but chic, but the authenticity and the quality of the products is stunning!
Richard Gere eats there when in Séville.

LA PERDIDA ASADOR

Great barbecue meat in a very chic yet simple atmosphere.

15km away from Séville, in an Andalusian meets Mexico type of hacienda, you will feel like Salma Hayek in her masterpiece « Bandidas ».

Go there during summertime weekends otherwise too quiet.

€€

MESON NAVARRO

Homemade pork ribs are to die for!

At 5 km of Seville in the village of Valencina, this family owned restaurant is situated in a place under orange trees next to a church. Only locals, and delicious homemade food.

TERRAZA @ EME CATHEDRAL

To me THE best view over the Giralda.

At the 5th floor of Hotel EME Cathedral.
An international atmosphere on a tiny rooftop with great service and bartenders.

€€

THE SECOND ROOM COCKTAILS BAR

For cocktails lover.

Another great spot of my friend Antonio Bellido.

On a very touristy spot next to the Giralda, the best cocktails you’ll experience here in Seville.

€€

CAFE CENTRAL

MY HEADQUARTER.

THIS BAR IN ALAMEDA DE HERCULES IS ALWAYS BUSY AT NIGHT DURING WEEKENDS. NOTHING SPECIAL IN IT EXCEPT THAT THE CROWD IS COOL, AND SO ARE THE BARTENDERS.

STRATEGIC SPOT TO CONTINUE YOUR NIGHT OUT IN THE CLUBS NEARBY.

Where to shop

ROMANO ANTIGUEDADES

OMG! Love this place that cannot be describe.

An antique shop big as 5 soccer fields at 15 km of Seville.

They do have almost everything: from a hangar full of 19th century doors to VW beatle cars, this is the place where I go when I want to create a « Wow Effect » in my projects.

€€€

CARAVASAR HOME

An exotic and rural chic vibe in every item you’ll find there. Many made to measure options for lamps, tables etc.

€€€

LONDON DESVAN

One of the store I am buying the more often for my projects.

Karen and her team are the best to fulfill your furniture needs.

A very eclectic selection where they can paint in another color an old buffet, taking care of the lining of a chair, and deliver it to you in Seville.

€€

VICTORIA ABBAD

Expensive but great interior design shop.

€€€

ARTEFACTUM INTERIORISMO

I like very much the interior design selection of this shop but the owners aren’t always very welcoming which prevents me to come more often.

The only luxury store in Seville.
Interesting selection of Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Céline, etc next to the Alfonso XII hotel.
