Expert review of Vineria San Telmo

Innovative and beautifully presented tapas served in a chic bohemian bar and terrace.

Juan Tarquini is from Argentina and travelled the world before falling in love with a Sevillana woman and putting down roots in Seville. What I love best about Vineria San Telmo - besides the wonderful food - is its unpretentiousness. It's simply an attractive and well-located restaurant with a fabulous menu and wine list. What more could you ask for?

Food and drink: 

You can see some Argentinian influences in a few of the dishes here, but mostly there is an interesting mix of both traditional and innovative Spanish tapas which make good use of fresh Mediterranean ingredients. The menu, which is vegetarian friendly, changes from time to time, giving regulars like me something new to try. Desserts are made by Juan's wife, who is a pastry chef. There is also an excellent bodega with many wines offered by the glass.

Recommended dishes: 

Favourite dishes include: creamy bulghur wheat with setas, squid ink pasta with grilled scallops, filo filled with tender bulltail and prawn carpaccio.

Ambience: 

The first thing you'll notice are the mottos and quotations stencilled on the walls and ceilings, pointing to a laid-back, bohemian approach to life, which is reflected in the general ambience.

Service: 

The service is normally pleasant and efficient, though can slow down at very busy times when both the restaurant and terrace are full. The staff are mostly young and can speak English, and Juan, the owner, is usually also on hand to greet his guests. 

Location: 

Situated at the end of the Jardines del Murillo, this is an excellent central location on the edge of the Barrio Santa Cruz.

Price advice: 

Tapas range from 3-5 euros, with wines by the glass around 2.50 euros. Salads and larger dishes range from 8-18 euros. We often share a couple of larger dishes as starters and then order individual tapas.
