Sal Gorda is located just off the Plaza Alfalfa, and is owned and run by the brothers Cabrera Fernandez, who also own La Mia Tana pizza restaurant and Beodo, both of which are just around the corner in calle Pérez Galdós.

The premises are on the corner of a fairly narrow building, and extend vertically rather than horizontally, with a bar area on the ground floor, a dining area on the first floor, and the kitchen on the top floor, with the food being delivered by a “dumb waiter”. I love the pleasant, friendly atmosphere, with most of the activity centred on the ground floor, where there are half a dozen tables alongside the bar, and big plate-glass windows (with a window bench) looking out onto the little sidewalk terrace.

The tapas are mostly traditional with a twist, and mostly hits (with a couple of misses). I found the slow-cooked prawns a bit mushy and the risotto overcooked and stodgy. But the little squids served with bacon sauce (yes, BACON sauce) were sublime, and the beef stew burger is one of the best sliders I’ve had in Sevilla. The grilled seabream with ajoblanco is simply and perfectly executed, and the slow-cooked suckling pig is decadently delicious. Be sure to ask about the daily specials and, if you like craft beer, check out their always changing selection. Very good wines too.
