Phone +34 628 15 09 95

Founded in 1670, El Rinconcillo holds the distinct title of the oldest bar in Seville. Dining here is a walk through history, quite literally as the tiles are from the 17th century. Old wine bottles line the shelves and elements of the decor hearken back to the restaurant's history as a grocery.

The tavern is on the bottom floor, where you can sip on vermouth and snack on tapas, while the second floor features a sit-down restaurant with a separate menu. When dining in on the first floor, your order is written down by the bartender with chalk on the mahogany bar. After you settle your bill, the chalk is wiped away, as has been done for centuries.

Located in the San Lorenzo neighborhood, Eslava is a neighborhood spot is known for modern, award-winning tapas.

If you're dining alone you can also snag a spot along a ledge where you can enjoy your tapas while standing. Standout dishes include a slow-cooked egg served on a mushroom puree, pork ribs in a honey and rosemary glaze, and "a cigar for Bequer" (a combination of cuttlefish, bechamel, seaweed, and squid ink). If you want to dine at a table, head to the restaurant early in the evening.

Casa Moreno is another abacería beloved by Sevillanos for its best-kept secret to locals. If you walk back far past the precariously stacked provisions and you will find a long, narrow bar that you won't want to share with your friends. Food options are simple at Casa Moreno, which are made by what's offered in-store, but a selection of montaditos and small bites along with their extensive list of wines by the glass.
