Mariscos Emilio is named for Emilio Guerrero, who began the family business selling seafood from a basket, an image that is still the symbol of the chain of seafood restaurants founded by his son Antonio with the opening of the first Mariscos Emilio in San Juan de Aznalfarache, just outside Seville, in 1970.
Flagship of the group is the Mariscos Emilio in Calle Genova, on the boundary of Triana and Los Remedios, which still does what the name says – high quality seafood of every description. This is every inch a typical Seville fish bar-restaurant, with a long bar area displaying their wares facing a row of large windows which let in lots of light, and allow you to watch the world going by outside, a tank of live lobsters, and a restaurant area in the back, complete with two model ships in glass cases.
The food is good too, with many of the classic Seville dishes. We sampled a sizzling gambas al ajillo, perfectly fried cod and prawn & jamón stuffed mushrooms and were not disappointed.
There is now a Mariscos Emilio Tapas Bar next door too, which extends the range out of specialised seafood to meat based tapas as well, but that’s for another time.
