Salas Asador

Updated December 2017

I’ve known about this place for a long time, and even have a vague memory of having been here back when I was fairly new to Sevilla, so another visit was certainly in order. Sister bar to El Cairo just around the corner, it has a very Sevillano feel to it. Part of the reason for this is that’s it’s built on part of the frontage of the neo-Mudejar building next door, designed by Ánibal Gonzalez, and the small dining rooms to the side are separated by one of those Moorish arches in brick and tile and are quite grand. The main dining room and the tapas and bar area in front are less obvious, but are quite airy and spacious with a more downplayed version of the style.

As the name suggests, Salas specialises in meats and fish cooked over a holm oak charcoal grill (asador). A fairly traditional menu with a seafood bias and just enough modifications to be interesting, everything is excellently prepared. The grilled swordfish was the star tapa of the day, but the presa skewer and whole deep-fried cuttlefish were really good too. Good wines and a nice cosy ambiance, but the service in the bar area could be more attentive.
