We were lucky enough to have Miranda guide us through the Triana neighborhood for the Tapas Like a Local Tour and had an amazing time. As Triana is less touristy than some of the other neighborhoods, we would not have known where to find any of the delicious places we went to. From trying different kinds of sherries, to peeling shrimp at the bar of a local place, to just soaking in the sunset over the river walking to our destinations, we could not have asked for a better time. Thank you, Miranda!
Our guide was Sophie. And we LOVED her. I am usually resistant to taking tours, mostly because of a certain formality and a way of casting tourists into places that locals would never go. This tour was not only fun but super authentic. We went to 4 very local tapa bars in Triana, learned about Triana, local food and how to navigate tapas bars in Sevilla. I highly recommend the tour.
We had a fantastic evening tasting local tapas in Triana. We were shown bars we would never have found on our own. Our guide Miranda was very entertaining and informative. She had great local knowledge, and gave us lots of good advice. She was also good company. We don't eat meat and the tour offered us plenty of veggie and fish options. Lovely mushrooms and tortilla. We'd certainly use Devour again on our next trip.
What to Expect on Your Tour
This tour is the triple threat: tapas bars that locals love, a neighborhood we actually go out in, and the foods we eat when we do. Tonight you’re one of us, and we’ll show you what a night out would look like if you lived here. Trust us when we say it doesn’t get more authentic than this.
Start your evening on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. You’ll get an introduction to the neighborhood across the river, and begin to understand how its location continues to shape it today. Then, it’s across the iconic Isabel II Bridge to your first tapas stop: a family-run gourmet grocer famous for its sherry wines served straight from the barrel with flamenco flair. Here we’ll start our exploration of the true tastes of traditional Andalusia with cured meats and a cold tomato soup originally from nearby Cordoba.
On the way to your second tapas stop, you’ll wind through Triana’s cobblestone backstreets making two special stops along the way, at an emblematic church and a tiny chapel. Then, it’s time for a treat the locals love, fresh shrimp from the neighboring province of Huelva and ice cold beer!
Just on the other side of Triana’s main pedestrian street is our third tapas bar of the night. Opened and run by the same family since 1962, this spot is an absolute Triana institution. The key to their success is their reduced menu that’s been perfected over the last 50 years, and we’re going to try a few of the star dishes. Their most famous is the city’s best pork sirloin—bought fresh daily from the neighborhood market—and addictive grilled mushrooms. Both dishes go perfectly with the local substitute to sangria or a local wine.
As we keep exploring the hidden backstreets of Triana, you’ll learn about the neighborhood’s centuries-old ceramics tradition and catch a glimpse of the best ceramic shops in town. Finally, we’ll wrap up the evening at a local bar that’s been open since the 1950s and is run by a second-generation Triana family. This spot is a favorite among bullfighters and flamenco dancers and their home cooking draws crowds from across the neighborhood.
You’ll leave with an appreciation of simple Spanish cooking, an understanding of what sets this neighborhood across the river apart, and a list of local hangouts that you won’t be able to keep from revisiting.
And as with all Devour Seville tours, you’ll receive our Devouring Seville guide. Packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city, put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Seville like a local!
