Best for Families - Expert review of La Moneda

A taste of the Cadiz coast in the centre of Seville.

Owner José Luis Inchausti is from Sanlúcar de Barremeda, on the Cádiz coast, and has done an excellent job of bringing a bit of the coast to Seville.

Food and drink: 

Specialising in fish and seafood from Cadiz and Huelva, the majority of the dishes are made of very fresh and perfectly cooked fish and seafood, including some unusual delicacies such as sopa de galeras (not for the squeamish). I especially like the swordfish in manzanilla sauce and the fried langoustines with bechamel.

Ambience: 

There's a real maritime theme going on here, with models of boats on the walls and massive fresh fish in refrigerated glass display cases. The front room is very casual, with people either sitting at the bar for tapas or having raciones at the tables. At the back there is a slightly more formal restaurant with a separate menu.

Service: 

It is professional but not stuffy.

Location: 

It is just across the avenue from the cathedral, next to the main post office.

Price advice: 

Tapas are excellent value ranging from 2.60-3.20 euros, and 12-15 euros for mains. In the restaurant expect to pay 40-45 euros per person. The extensive wine list starts at 12 euros a bottle up to 100 euros, with house wine 2.50 euros a glass.
