Labulla

Updated November 2011

Since my last visit here early summer it turns out the Puratasca gang no longer has any connection with Labulla, though they continue with pretty much the same blackboard menu, offering an appealing selection of cold and hot dishes and lots of good wines by the glass. The service is still “friendly” but now feels a bit artificial, and they really oughtta lose that “theatre rope” at the entrance, which is very unwelcoming. And charging 1€ per person for one basket of bread that is brought to the table without being ordered is, well, against restaurant legislation rulings in Sevilla.

I was almost ready to remove Labulla from my listing here except I’ve heard good reports lately from others who have enjoyed the food and ambiance, so it will stay for now. The food is still quite good, but I don’t think the portion sizes justify the prices, which have increased over the past few months (the prices, not the portion sizes). And what used to be a cheeky eclectic atmosphere that was lively and fun now feels like more style than substance. Still, it’s a okay place to go for something a bit different on a Sunday evening when everywhere else is closed.

  1. I have just returned from a visit to Seville with 6 girlfriends from the UK when we discovered Labulla. We called in for lunch & had the most joyous experience. The waiting staff could not have been more helpful (our Spanish was almost non existant) & the food was exciting- stylish presentation, original cuisine with great depth of flavour, wide variety of choices, a lovely ambience & amusing decor. We are all “foodies” & eat out a lot & thought this was a restaurant which deserves to be a great success. Based on our experience we called back for our final supper which was wonderful again. Last but not least, we thought that both our meals represented the most excellent value for money. We would certainly return & would recommend Labulla to those who appreciate something special. Thank you Labulla.

  2. Pretty much agree with Azahar; cool atmosphere, fun staff, good food but prices higher than the portion sizes justify. We had, for example, some delicious octopus but a tapa portion for 10 euros spoiled it for us! Ditto the magret de pato – very delicious but very small portion for the price! Want to go back but….
