Hotel Abril, Seville

There are two basic types of dining out in Sevilla: going for tapas (small portions generally between 1,50-4€) or heading to a restaurant for a more traditional meal. This section covers the many bars and restaurants where you can practice tapeando, or going out for tapas. This is not to say you can't order a plate of food in many tapas bars: you will see groups sharing a ración (plate) or media ración (half-plate) of the same dishes. And in many of the good restaurants you can order tapas at the bar. This is a nice way to try some excellent food without paying the full price of a sit down dinner or lunch. As you will see, these two types of dining out in Seville kind of blend together. In the tapas section I will list a number of restaurants which also appear in the restaurant section, but in this case I will try to cover experience of of tapas separately. Generally this means space at the bar, price, what is on the tapas menu and perhaps not always on the dinner or lunch menu. Finally, there has been a noticeable change in the offering of tapas over the last 5-10 years in Seville, with vegetarian and international dishes appearing on more and more menus. I keep hearing that Spain is impossible for a vegetarian and that's simply not true. If you get to know the right places and dishes you'll see there is plenty to eat. That's not to say vegetarian dishes are everywhere, but they're much easier to find now.
