Unsure where to eat in Seville? With incredible markets and amazing restaurants, eating in the Triana neighborhood is a must when you’re in Seville.
Traditionally separate from the city of Seville, the strong flamenco tradition, beautiful ceramics and complex history of the neighborhood give it a unique feel and its own special character. What do both sides of the river have in common? Incredible food! So if you’re wondering where to eat in Seville, here are our favorite spots to eat in the Triana neighborhood.
Nestled right in the heart of Triana, Bar Amarra has been a local neighborhood favorite for years. Their seafood is among the best in landlocked Seville, perfectly fresh and cooked to perfection. While anything you order is sure to be delicious, their standout dish is easily the tortillita de camarones. Wash it all down with an ice-cold beer to complete the experience.
Address: Calle Pagés del Corro, 43
Bodeguita El 24
A true dive bar if there ever was one, Bodeguita El 24 has earned its reputation as a Triana institution. This no-frills, simple bar specializes in tiny montadito sandwiches. They also have a great selection of cured meats and wines, if you’re looking for something on the lighter side. The ambiance here is unbeatable—this is truly where to eat in Seville if you want to feel like a born-and-bred trianero.

If you’re looking for some of the best simple, traditional homemade food in Triana, look no further than Paco España. With tapas prepared lovingly by the owner’s mother, everything on the menu here will make you feel as if you’re enjoying a family meal. Their gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) croquettes are not always available, but absolutely worth ordering if they are. If not, the croquetas de purchero with a touch of mint are also a delicious option! Other star dishes include their ensaladilla de langostinos and house montadito, made with perfectly grilled pork loin and topped with a wafer-thin slice of Iberian ham. As you can see, you can’t go wrong with anything you order here!
Address: Calle Alfarería, 18
You might hear locals referring to Casa Ruperto as “los pajaritos” (“the little birds”). That’s because their famous dish is their excellent fried quail! The bar is small but cozy, offering an authentic and vibrant feel that fits perfectly into any tapas crawl. If you don’t mind being on your feet, this is a great place to stop for a quick tapa or casual midday meal.

Combining Venezuelan and Spanish cuisine, Vega10 provides the best fusion tapas in Triana! With a wide variety of options to choose from, including some great options for vegetarians, this modern style bar really is a treat. Mention the restaurant to any locals and you’ll almost certainly be recommended their bull’s tail cannelloni – considered one of the city’s best modern tapas, something that the local’s would not say without reason! This is the perfect spot if you’re unsure where to eat in Seville and Triana is calling you!

Located in the winding back streets of Triana, Puratasca may be a tricky place to find, but it’s worth it! Tasca refers to a dive bar in Spanish and although the décor lives up to that title, the food is amazing. Make sure you try their specialty rice dish, as well as the chorizo in tempura. Also, don’t miss the desserts, prepared by the amazing Manu Jara, a master baker from Seville.
Address: Calle Numancia, 5
For atmosphere and beautiful food, Blanca Paloma is the place! This is where the locals go and with such crowds gathering here almost every night, you have to be early to get a seat. Along with indulging in some of the typical, traditional sevillano tapas, make sure to try the eggplant stuffed with prawns and their delicious boquerones (anchovies) with a lemon twist.
Address: Calle Pages del Corro, 86
El Mercado de Triana
The Triana Market doesn’t just provide you with some of the best fresh produce for you to use at home. It also does some amazing tapas at various stalls throughout the marketspace. Start with some jamón at Jamoneria Jose Luis Romero before making your way to Cervecería Loli for a quick beer. Or, why not try something completely different at Ostreria & Sushi de Mercado, where you’ll find top-quality oysters and sushi along with some delicious wine.
Address: Calle San Jorge, 6
Sol y Sombra
Sol y Sombra is a small, family-run restaurant known as a place for fans of bullfighting to come and discuss the tradition.

Highlights at this bar include pork cheek in a red wine reduction and the bull’s tail stew a la sevillana.
