Expert review of Las Teresas

Great traditional tapas with a colourful feria and bullfighting atmosphere.

This is another Seville institution that has become very popular with tourists, though this one hasn't fallen into the tourist trap tradition of offering a fixed menu of gazpacho, paella and sangría, and many locals still hang out here.

Food and drink: 

The tapas here are very typical and you can also find excellent jamón and cheese. I especially like their sizzling prawns in garlicky olive oil (gambas al ajillo) though it's got quite pricey over the years. Other favourites include the cuminy spinach with chickpeas and a tender chunk of grilled pork loin wrapped in bacon.

Ambience: 

If you're a fan of feria and bullfighting memorabilia you'll love this place - you can barely see the walls for all the photos and posters. It is often crowded, but after a few minutes wait a small table or space at the bar usually becomes available.

Service: 

Service is usually efficient, though it's been a bit uneven of late.

Location: 

It is right in the heart of Barrio Santa Cruz, on the corner of two pedestrian streets.

Price advice: 

Tapas prices range from 2.50-4.50 euros, with larger plates usually being better value if you're sharing. Wine by the glass is about 2.50 euros.
