La Antigua Abacería de San Lorenzo

Updated November 2017

At first glance a typical “abacería” combination of provisions store, delicatessen and tapas bar, it turns out that La Antigua Abacería de San Lorenzo is anything but typical. Making clever use of the four downstairs rooms in this lovingly restored 17th century house, co-owners (and husband & wife) Ramón & María del Carmen have added personal touches, like the ever-changing window display in front of the bar, and walking through the rooms offering little complementary snacks to customers. It’s a very popular spot, and has the feel of a “local” with everybody on first name terms.

The food is mainly “plates for sharing”, but there’s a good selection of tapas too. Be sure to ask about the daily specials – we love the olive croquetas and the tomato soup is comfort food heaven. If you are feeling adventurous you can order “Lo Que Diga Ramón” (“what Ramón says” 20€ per person/two person minimum/drinks not included) and see what you get. Andalusian wines are featured though some riojas and ruedas also appear on the list, and there is an impressive range of sherry wines as well. As you would expect, the service is very personal and friendly and you feel like you’ve been invited into someone’s home.
