La Moneda

Updated September 2016


Tucked away just behind the main post office on Avenida de la Constitución, this is a wonderful family-run neighbourhood bar for fabulous fish and seafood dishes. It’s also just around the corner from one of Sevilla’s most expensive seafood restaurants, La Isla, but frankly you’ll eat just as well here for much less, and you’ll also get much friendlier service. I love the new “lighter” look of the place after recent renovations.

The house speciality is sopa de galera, not for the squeamish (actually quite tasty but I find galeras kinda creepy). Other favourite dishes are the swordfish in manzanilla sauce, grilled sea bass with pear alioli, garlicky coquinas… there are also daily specials, including such rare treats as percebes (goose barnacle) in season. For those who prefer “turf” try the tender stewed pork cheeks or grilled beef. Tapas are served at the bar and on the terrace, raciones (larger plates) at the tables in the dining room.
