Expert review of La Giganta
This is a small family-run bar, which Felipe Salas has turned into one of the most popular in the neighbourhood.
It's a mostly Mediterranean-style menu with a few Arabic touches. Their best dish has to be the brandada de bacalao, which is a very flavourful garlicky salt cod spread on toast. I also love the fried potatoes served with a creamy basil alioli and the daily special menu always has something new and delicious on offer. It is vegetarian friendly too.
The name La Giganta refers to the famous Giralda statue on the tower of the same name (not to the restaurant itself) and there are photos and paintings of both on all of the walls. It's very casual and comfortable.
The service is very personal and efficient.
Next to the Santa Catalina Church, it's about a 15-minute walk from the centre.
It's excellent value with tapas starting around 2.80 euros. You can have a nice tapas meal for less than 10 euros a person.
