Expert review of La Azotea

A fabulous blending of traditional Mediterranean and modern gourmet cuisine.

I love this place. Run by Juan (Sevillian) and Jeanine (Californian) you really feel the combination of old and new world influences here. Tapas are available at the bar and raciones (main courses) are served at the tables in the cosy dining area next to it.

Food and drink: 

The menu changes with the seasons and there are also daily specials, depending on what looks good at the market that morning. The tuna is always excellent and I love the little filo triangles filled with leeks, langoustines and cheese. Though I have to say that I have yet to try anything here that isn't exceptionally good.

Ambience: 

It is in a word – bustling. If you want to sit at a table you'll need to book several days in advance, or squeeze in at the bar for tapas.

Service: 

No matter how busy it gets the service is always top-notch and usually bilingual.

Location: 

It is just outside the main shopping district, about a two-minute walk from the main Corte Inglés.

Price advice: 

Tapas at the bar range from 2.50-5 euros. At the tables you can order half or full portions that cost from 8-18 euros. Wine by the glass and by the bottle is very reasonable. You can also sample and buy wine at the Azotea gourmet food and wine shop across the street and have it served with your meal (with no corkage fee).
