Los Coloniales

Updated February 2013 coloniales 1

I can’t believe I haven’t been back here in almost six years! Especially as it’s just a stone’s throw from where I live now. Cheap and cheerful, house specialities include the ‘tablas’ which are thick cut slices of toasted country bread with a variety of toppings, such as salmorejo with jamón serrano and quail eggs. Other popular favourites are the various solomillo (grilled pork tenderloin) tapas that are offered with a variety of sauces – ‘al whisky’, roquefort, ‘a la castellana’.

The food is basic and good value for money with generous tapas portions that are “filled out” with lots of fried potato slices. But the wine list doesn’t seem to have changed in 20 years, with the usual reasonably drinkable reds and the unholy trinity of whites Barbadillo-Fragata-SeñorioHeliche that used to be all you could get in bars when I first moved here. Their website promises a nice Rueda verdejo called Cyatho, but it wasn’t to be found.

The terrace facing the square fills up fast, but you can write your name on the chalkboard waiting list and have a drink at the bar while you wait for a table.

    Hola João, and welcome.

    Have you seen that there is a second Coloniales location now?

  3. João Mendes says:

    I saw it but never went there. Have they the same menu or is it completly diferent?

    Best regards,


  4. azahar says:

    The menu at the new place is exactly the same, and so is the quality and also the prices. I thought having a more central location next to the cathedral might put the prices up, but it hasn’t – at least not so far.

    Do you live in Sevilla, João?

  5. João Mendes says:

    I live in Portimão – Algarve ( Portugal ) and go often to Seville.

    Myself, my wife, and two other couples just got back from a four week trip to Spain and Portugal. We ate at Los Coloniales at the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel.
    It was the worst meal, and the worst service that we experienced during our entire trip. We asked if they had room for six inside and they said yes. Then they proceed to put us at a table that would have been too small for four people, and right by the kitchen door. As if that were not bad enough the waitress insisted that it would be better if SHE decided what to bring us so that it would fit on the table. I’m so angry about this that I will continue to post this on as many travel web sites as I can.
    And by the way… the food was terrible.

  7. azahar says:

    What a shame you had such a bad experience, Nelson. It’s also a shame your concierge didn’t know enough to advise you to get there early.
    Better luck next time!
