La Azotea

Updated August 2017

I love this place. It’s cosy and intimate, yet lively and friendly. The food is excellent, the service is top-notch… just go! But be sure to get there early. Owned and run by the excellent Juan (Sevilla) and Jeanine (California), La Azotea offers two menus – one that changes seasonally, and the other daily, depending on what looks good and fresh at the market. As a result you may not find some of the dishes shown here, but there will always be something equally as delicious. Tapas are available at the bar, full and half raciones at the tables, and there is an excellent selection of wines by the glass.

La Tienda de La Azotea gourmet food & wine shop is just around the corner at Conde de Barajas 12.

Also visit sister bars La Azotea Zaragoza and La Azotea Santa Cruz, which offer the same great food and wonderful service.

  2. Staying on Calle Vicente we were directed as a priority to La Azotea by our local friendly French tapas barman Pierre, and headed over on the off-chance of a seat. Arriving before 9pm we accidentally entered the wine bar first and met the delightful Jeanine. Very friendly, realizing our destination, she immediately crossed the road and got Juan to reserve us a table for two. We drank local Rioja as recommended by Jeanine before crossing the road at restaurant opening time, to find it already nearly full. Juan was brilliant, placed us, and looked after us extremely well despite the crowds packed around the tapas counter and eyeing us jealously at our table. Food and wine were fantastic and before we left we booked again for the next night – our last in Sevilla. We were lucky and there was a gap between 9pm and 10.30pm. The next night we were on time, but again La Azotea was packed and so we slightly overran our allotted time. Juan told us to take our time and the next seating would have to wait at the bar, no pressure at all. Fortunately they didn’t have to wait too long, but once again the food was superb, as was the service by Juan and his young and friendly staff. Somewhere we’ll definitely head for next time in Sevilla.

  3. Hi Veronica & James,

    What an excellent tribute to one of my top five favourite tapas bars in town. It’s great to know that someone just walking in off the street still gets treated like a special and valued client – though this was also the case the first time I happened into La Azotea. The combination of wonderful food and genuine friendly attention is unbeatable. So, when are you coming back?

  4. I also just walked in off the street and had a great experience here on friday (19 nov.). I met Juan and his wife Janine, Juan also introduced me to another solo diner from the US whom he had just met. The other staff were also warm and very helpful with wine. The food was pretty darn good too! The brochette of rape and the morcilla were my favorite. Thanks for sharing your dining experiences!
