Casa Román

Updated July 2017

This is where it all started, way back on a spring afternoon in 2007. I took some pics of our lunch that day, with my first ever digital camera, and Sevilla Tapas was born. Family run Casa Román is still one of my favourite tapas bars, as it has been for over twenty years now. The tapas and setting are very traditional and they serve up some of the best jamón and caña de lomo in town. I love the fabulous FAT olives (gordillos), the delicious crispy fried bacalao (salt cod), and the grilled mushrooms filled with jamón and salsa verde are another must have. Also be sure to try the MEAT – different cuts of Ibérico pork served in various ways. Friendly service, a nice selection of wines by the glass and, although situated in a very touristy area, you’ll find plenty of locals here too.

The terrace has small “hobbit” tables running along the front of the bar, as well as an ample dining area outside. Views from the terrace are gorgeous … charming street scenes, the lovely Hospital de los Venerables,  as well as a beautiful square full of orange trees. Heavenly when the azahar is in blossom.
