The name Bajo Guia comes from the famous riverside street in Sanlucar de Barrameda, Bajo de Guia or Pilot’s Wharf, and this excellent restaurant specialises in the fish and seafood cuisine of that town. The original Bajo Guia was in Bermejales in south Sevilla, but a couple of years ago the team moved to this new location near the bullring, and are now doing nicely.
It is primarily a restaurant but most of the menu is available as tapas in the front area by the bar – and very good it was too. Everything from the tomato salad through boquerones fritos, tortillita de camarones (a speciality) and a whole fried choco (cuttlefish), to tuna in a delicious tomato sauce, was among the best I’ve had. Our waiter was great too, making recommendations and being attentive without being intrusive. I’ve rarely been this impressed by a first visit experience, and will definitely be back, with friends, to try some of the larger plates.
