Casa Santos can be found in a little square near the city centre, but on a back street away from the main thoroughfare, and I was barely aware of its existence until being invited there by a couple of friends who live in the neighbourhood (which is now my new neighbourhood too!). And this is certainly one of those bars that’s obviously for the locals, in the shiny ceramics and metal counter top style of its time. Nothing flash, but with a good tapas list.
Until recently, the proprietor was Santos Chamarro García, whose family was among those who came to Seville from the north of Spain at the time of the 1929 expo, and contributed so much to the gastronomy of the city. Santos retired after 52 years and the bar has now passed to a younger generation. Casa Santos opens for breakfast at 7.30 in the morning and stays open until midnight, with an all-day kitchen.
