Vineria San Telmo

Updated October 2016


Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice when you walk into the Vineria San Telmo are the mottos and quotations painted on the walls and ceiling, followed by the display case featuring spectacular desserts by Gollerías (including the Very Best lemon meringue pie in the universe) and the wonderful glass wine cellar (I want one at home!). You can then go on to discover the Vineria’s special blend of traditional and innovative tapas, which also includes a lot of terrific vegetarian options.

I’ve been going to the Vineria for over ten years and the food here is consistently outstanding, as is the exceptional value for money (no pretentious “gourmet tapas prices”). Owner Juan Manuel Tarquini is all about the wines and there is an extensive wine list including a very good selection of wines by the glass (look out for the featured wine of the month).

Favourite dishes of mine include the perfectly grilled pluma Ibérica (pork shoulder), the gorgeous garlicky pan-fried octopus, sexy squid ink spaghetti with a perfectly grilled scallop atop, and… well, honestly? I love the whole menu. Simply because it’s so eclectic and well done that there is always something I feel like eating when I stop by. I was also very pleased to see the addition of smaller “tapas size” salads, perfect for one, or for two to share as a side dish.

But the very best thing is how you feel so at home at the Vineria, either inside the cosy restaurant or out on the fabulous terrace overlooking the Murillo gardens. The knowledgeable international and multilingual Vineria team go out of their way to ensure you have a great time, which reflects Tarquini’s generous nature and attention to detail. Just go!
