BaQvs is Luis Gutiérrez’s new restaurant located in the Hotel Casas de la Judería, one of Seville’s most historic and fascinating architectural ensembles. The restaurant occupies three spaces in the hotel – a walk-in restaurant/tapas bar at the front, a second dining room inside, and a gorgeous colonnaded patio with a marble fountain and potted greenery – one of the prettiest patios in town. The front room is divided between the restaurant section (tables with tablecloths etc) and a more basic tapas section with tall tables and chairs. Wooden floors, beamed ceilings and padded wall coverings produce an ambiance that is both picturesque and luxurious.
Cuisine is Spanish/Mediterranean and ranges from simple traditional dishes such as ensaladilla and croquetas to more modern and elaborate dishes, either as plates for sharing or smaller tapas. The standout dish for us was a timbal of Jamón Ibérico de Bellota – definitely worth going back for. There is also an excellent wine list, including a wide range of sherries.
