Best for Romance - Expert review of La Sal

Looking for the freshest and tastiest tuna in town? This is the place for you.

Charo Alvarez comes from a family of restaurateurs from Zahara de los Atunes on the Cadiz coast. The original La Sal is still going strong, but a few years ago Charo decided to open here in Seville and chose a lovely old renovated house in the Barrio Santa Cruz as the site for the second La Sal location.

Food and drink: 

On offer here is tuna, and more tuna. All of it cooked a su punto and all of it mouthwateringly good. My personal favourites are the tuna tataky, tartare and brochettes. And besides several veggy salad options there is a gorgeous warm octopus salad served on a bed of potato purée and miso. If you're not in the mood for seafood, try the filo triangles filled with black pudding or the thick cut of grilled pork tenderloin.

Ambience: 

It's a very cosy place, with several different rooms on two floors, as well as a small terrace on the pedestrianised street. My favourite table is in front of the big front window. The decor is quite traditional in warm oranges and cool greys, with lots of Spanish modern art on the walls.

Service: 

Service can seem a bit aloof at first, but don't let this put you off. By the time you've had your starter you'll be feeling very welcome and at home.

Location: 

It is right in the heart of Santa Cruz.

Price advice: 

Tapas range from 3-5 euros, with dinner costing about 40-50 euros per person including wine.

Other useful branches: 

The original La Sal is at Urbanización Atlanterra Playa 73, Zahara de los Atunes, Cádiz.
