Expert review of La Primera del Puente
This is one of the oldest bars on the now trendy Calle Betis, which runs along the Triana side of the river. It's always packed out but don't let that put you off because the turnover is quite fast and you won't have to wait long to be served.
It's all about the seafood here, and at the rate it flies out of the kitchen you know it has to be fresh. The pepito de gambas, a house speciality, is a small toasted sandwich with grilled prawns and alioli – fabulous. I also really like the breaded swordfish and could eat a whole plateful of the battered prawns.
Cheap and cheerful, the bar is just about always packed. There is a dining room at the back and another dining area across the street that comprises two levels of outdoor terraces with wonderful views of the river.
Fast and friendly, most of the waiters have been working here for years and really know what they're doing.
It's just across the San Telmo bridge in Triana.
You can get tapas at the bar for 2.30-2.50 euros and larger plates from 7.50-15 euros. House wine is 2 euros a glass. In the restaurant look to spend less than 20 euros a person, with wine about 12-14 euros a bottle.
