El Rinconcillo

Updated November 2012

Sevilla’s oldest bar (founded in 1670), this place has to be experienced. The ‘ambientation’ is fabulous, and usually very busy, but just belly up to the bar and place your order. I’m always impressed at how the barmen keep track of all the chalked tallies on the wooden bar and never mix up which one belongs to whom. Nice cuminy spinach with garbanzos and arroz del día (rice of the day). They also do a selection of tortillas, which here are more like a French omelette. Variations include jamón serrano, wild mushrooms, prawns, asparagus – all good. A great place to stop off at the beginning of your “tapear” evening to soak up a bit of traditional Sevillano atmosphere while enjoying your manzanilla sherry and olives.
