It is often said that most Spaniards do not live to work. You work to live.
And for most, a good life usually means good food, good company, and plenty of free time to enjoy both. This year you will be watching Andalusia and every other region in Spain as a whole 12 festivosor holidays – more than in most other European countries. These are 12 ideal occasions to celebrate life, share a family meal, or have a few drinks with friends.
While some holidays are best enjoyed on the street with tapas, other special occasions are usually spent at home with loved ones, so most bars and restaurants remain closed and the city looks more like a ghost town than usual.
So if you visit Seville during a vacation – whether it is now Reyes (Epiphany) or Good Friday, Corpus Christi or Christmas Day – say goodbye to your FOMO and get your part of the good life by trying these amazing places!
1. Arte y Sabor
With its pleasant, sun-drenched terrace on the trendy Alameda de Hércules Arte y Sabor has developed into a focal point for affordable, inspired tapas with a Mediterranean touch. The pork cheek in vodka sauce and the loin paupiette are to die for, but Arte y Sabor is also a great place for hearty salads, vegetarian tapas, and vegan options.
The best thing is that the kitchen is open all day. If the original location happens to be closed, you are guaranteed to find it newer sister restaurant open just a block away.
2. San Marco restaurant
If you want to add a touch of romance to a special day, take your loved one with you San Marco restaurant in the heart of the Santa Cruz neighborhood. Located in a 12th century Arabic bathhouse, this Italian restaurant will seduce you with its unbeatable surroundings and delicious dishes, from pasta and pizza to Spanish specialties.
To top it off, they are even open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve with a special, delicious menu.
3. Vinería San Telmo
With an apparently endless wine list, a diverse selection of contemporary fusion tapas, and an inviting dining room with quotes from Aerosmith and Buddha Vinería San Telmo has everything to make all of your vacation dreams come true. The multilingual staff will be happy to recommend their favorite dishes. If you are wondering, our dishes are Iberian Pluma and the panko-fried prawns – and there are options for all eating habits and tastes.
Just keep in mind that Vinería San Telmo is a regular stop on our tapas and flamenco tour in Seville. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if you would come back alone to work your way through the fantastic menu!
4. Las Escobas
Opened in 1386, Las Escobas is not only known as Spain’s oldest tavern – it is also believed to have been visited by Cervantes, Lord Byron and Christopher Columbus! The original owner who made and sold brooms (escobas in Spanish), opted for diversification through the sale of wine and made his business the country’s first drinking establishment.
Today Las Escobas mainly offers traditional dishes, including Andalusian classics such as gazpacho, fried fish and croquetas, and even though it’s on the tourist street just a few steps from the cathedral, the historic feel of the place – let’s dare say – will definitely blow your mind!
In addition, the restaurant is open every day of the year from breakfast to dinner.
5. El Bache
Inspired by ingredients and recipes from his hometown of Cadiz and his international travels, chef Ale Alcántara has put together an extremely creative menu with fresh, seasonal products of the highest quality.
The best part? El Bache only closes for Christmas dinner, Christmas day and New Year.
6. Las Teresas
For the most sevillanosOn public holidays and special occasions, a large plate with freshly cut Iberian ham fed with acorns must always be used. If you agree, stop salivating and go to Las Teresas for some of the best jamón ibérico in the old City.
This traditional bar is another popular stop on our tapas and flamenco tour of Seville. It was first opened in 1870 and is still popular today for its sausages, authentic stews and delicious fried fish.
With the exception of Christmas Eve, the kitchen in Las Teresas is open 365 days a year without a break.
