La Primera del Puente

Updated May 2015

I’ve been coming to La Primera del Puente since I first arrived in Sevilla over 20 years ago, in part because it was so affordable (back then I was “living” on an English teacher’s salary) but also because the food is simply wonderful. You can great seafood tapas at the bar and raciones (large plates) are served in the two dining rooms. One is behind the bar area and there is also a riverside terrace across the street with some of the best views in town. Lovely and naturally cool in summer.

Try the little toasted sandwich with prawns and alioli (pepito de gambas), fried breaded bacalao, battered prawns, garlicky grilled chiperones and, well, just about anything else. There are also some delicious stews (both fish and meat) and at lunchtime you’ll find a massive seafood paella ready to be served up as tapas. The service is fast and friendly and the bar is always full. And at the rate the seafood flies out of the (tiny) kitchen you know it’s gotta be fresh.
