A recent evening tapas tour in the stunning, sunny, city of Sevilla with Shawn Hennessey of Sevilla Tapas.

After meeting Shawn in the Plaza Nueva by the Hotel Inglaterrra, we headed off to our first stop at Bodeguita Romero.

If you are looking for fish, this is the place to go to in Sevilla. 

This is a restaurant specialising in fish and seafood, offering both the informal ambience of a tapas bar and the bright appeal of an open-view sushi bar. The superb display cabinet of fish and its charcoal grill are the star attractions.

There is an open plan kitchen, where you will be able to see the fish being prepared and cooked to your preference and method of cooking.

All the seafood comes from local waters near Huelva, which has a very interesting and wide variety of choice.

Be aware, this place, is really a...

Tucked away in a corner alleyway, this hidden gem really gives you the feel of being a local.

The bar as been in this side street since 1920, when it was a wine despacho, becoming Taberna La Goleta in 1952.

The current owner Manuel Navarro, whose nickname is Cateca, hence the new name, took over around five years ago.

It is fairly small inside and always seems popular day and night, when it is packed to the brim with plenty of people standing outside drinking and enjoying the Sevilla nightlife. 

The main thing here is, the large range of sherries of all types.

They also have a gr...

This excellent restaurant's location is in the residential barrio of La Buheria, which is a eight minute drive from the historic centre of Seville (or twenty minute walk).

It is modern and well fitted out, the tables are not to close together. We had at least three waiters looking after us.  

The charming chef Pedro Giménez came out to explain the menu to us.

He then took us downstairs into the preparation area to chose our fish and shellfish.

We shared the starters


Two types of oysters

Ostras Francesa marennes
Ostras Francesa a la brasa

Berberechos grande al vapour (steamed cockles)

A cosy and intimate tapas bar and restaurant just five minutes walk from the main shopping streets situated in calle Jesús del Gran Poder.

Thanks to owners Juan Gómez and Jeanine Merrill (who hails from California) it has a deserved reputation for excellent food and service.

There are two menus, one seasonal, and one that changes every week or even daily, depending on what looks good and fresh at the market.

Like a lot of places, it has tapas at the bar, and full or half raciones at the tables.

You only have to walk in and look at the seafood on the counter to see its amazing freshness.

We had

12 x Ostras Frances...
