Yebra

Updated October 2017

A little off the beaten path, but well worth making the extra effort. It’s also a good idea to get there early, but even if it’s all packed out when you arrive (which is usually the case), just give your name to one of the staff, have a drink at the bar and wait for a table. Brothers Manuel (front of house) & Javier (chef) now run the business that was started by their father Florentino Yebra more than 50 years ago and it maintains a very pleasant family feel, welcoming and comfortable.

Yebra specialises in seafood, but there are also several excellent meat dishes. Some of my favourites include the sea bass with risotto and foie cream, clams with jamón and prawns, and presa Ibérica (pork) stewed in a sweet sherry sauce with pinenuts & nutmeg. They also do what I think are the best boquerones al limón in town. There’s no written menu so check out the blackboards or ask the waiter to recommend either fish or meat dishes. There are lots of new tapas on offer, so if you haven’t been in awhile this would be a good time for another visit. Great service and very good wines too.

Some of the photos here date back to 2007, when I first started Sevilla Tapas. I keep meaning to replace them with updated versions of the same dishes, but somehow there is always something new to try instead. A work in progress…

There is also a dining room across the street from the bar, with reservations accepted.
