ANDALUCÍA - SEVILLA - RESTAURANT CAÑABOTA
RESTAURANT CAÑABOTA One Michelin Star
We returned to Sevilla in November 2022, having not been for a few years due to Covid, and quite a few cancelled flights.
On the first full day, we met up with our friend, Shawn Hennessey, who has run Sevilla Tapas in Sevilla for many years. You can find her by clicking here Sevilla Tapas
We started with sherry at Manolo Cateca,
This is an old favourite of Shawn and ourselves and is always worth dropping by.
We then headed off to lunch at Cañabota.
This is a restaurant specialising in fish and seafood, offering both the informal ambience of a tapas bar and restaurant. The superb display cabinet of fish and its charcoal grill are the star attractions.
Cañabota won their first Michelin star in 2021.
We sat down and started with some celebratory cava from Bodega Mestres.
We decided to let chef Juanlu Fernández pick the tasting menu for us, which was a wise choice...
We started with excellent bread and olive oil, followed by,
Seafood soup, sea anemone croquette.
smoked sardine tatin.
Razor clams, yolk mayo, sherry wine.
Grouper terrine, mushrooms, and truffle.
White prawn tartar with sturgeon caviar.
Hake and leeks.
Sole, artichoke, and seaweed broth.
Grilled oyster and steamed spinach.
Sea bass, cauliflower, and smoked butter.
Red prawns and pickled mushrooms.
Cucumber soup, oyster without oyster.
Chocolate, hazelnut, and salted caramel.
A sellection of wines we had during lunch.
It was a fantastic, long, afternoon, every morsel was great and the wines were matched to perfection, with great service from Juanlu and his team.
As a side aspect, we were told Gordon Ramsey was eating in the restaurant that night. Our friend Pankaj, was an old friend of his from London so popped in to say hello on our way out that night.
