Food and drink
The servings here are quite generous, so I recommend sharing a starter (if there are two of you) and then having one main course each. For starters there are wonderful croquetas, bacon-wrapped pork with mustard sauce, and crispy fried calamari or prawns. My personal favourite is the solomillo al jerez, a very thick-cut piece of tender beef sirloin that is char-grilled to perfection and served with a mushroom and sherry sauce (it is normally served with rather boring potatoes so I always ask for chips instead). The fish dishes are also excellent and the wine list is extensive.
It is a bit formal but still quite charming, especially the small downstairs dining room (now set aside as a smoking section but probably not after the smoking laws change again). In fact, there are about 10 separate dining areas, from small private ones that seat five to the largest that holds 40. But most people either sit in the first floor dining room or outside on the lovely terrace with the cathedral view.
The staff are very professional, knowledgable and courteous.
It is in an excellent location right next to the Cathedral and Giralda Tower.
Dinner for two will run to about 90-100 euros with a bottle of wine.
