While Sunday is one of our favorite days to wander the narrow streets of Seville and have a beer in a nice plaza, it can be tricky to find a good restaurant that’s actually open!
After a hard working week, Sunday is when many bars and restaurants close and take a well-deserved rest. But this means that visitors often find themselves at a bit of a loose end on Sunday evenings.
However, don’t panic! If you’re unsure where to eat in Seville on Sundays, you’ve come to the right place! Check out these great restaurants and ensure you don’t get caught in a tourist trap during your weekend stay.
Vinería San Telmo
Vinería San Telmo is considered by many to be one of the best restaurants in the city, and justifiably so. Located just behind the gardens of the Alcázar Palace, this restaurant produces delicious, fusion tapas. Though it also doubles as one of our favorite places to drink wine in all of Seville.
But the best of all? Their kitchen is open on Sundays! Don’t leave without trying the squid ink spaghetti with garlic and grilled scallops-unforgettable!
Address: Paseo Catalina de Ribera, 4
Located near the iconic ‘Las Setas’ monument in the center of the city, Perro Viejo wonderfully combines traditional cuisine and modern flavorings, with delicious results! The patatas served in spicy bravas sauce are some of the best in the city, but the stand-out dish has to be the Peruvian inspired ceviche (with sweet potato and onion). If you’re just finished sightseeing and wondering where to eat in Seville on Sundays, this is a great place to go!
