ANDALUCÍA - SEVILLA - LA AZOTEA
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.

On this occasion for lunch we stayed with seafood and white wine.
The service was superb, friendly and extremely knowledgeable from our server Sandra and the rest of Daniel Jimenez's team.
It is a must to make a reservation as the restaurant is quite small and there tends to be queues of people who have not booked, waiting outside for the restaurant to open.
