14 Best Tapas Bars in Seville, Spain

Heading to Spain and looking for the best Seville tapas bars and restaurants? You’re in the right place. Check out where to find the best tapas in Seville.

Spanish cuisine is famous for many things but one of the things it’s best known for is its tapas.

When you visit Seville, maybe as part of a road trip in Spain (my favorite way to travel around Spain!), hunting down the best tapas in Sevilla is something that should be on your bucket list together with watching one of the best flamenco shows in Seville.

The popularity of tapas reached astronomic popularity over recent years, especially in the international food scene. They are one of Spain’s biggest contributions to the international food industry and have become an integral part of Spanish culture.

The art of tapas goes far beyond the food itself because it’s also clearly a social experience. In fact, I’d say it’s more about the casual dining experience and the social conversations among people who share tapas, rather than the tapas themselves. When I lived in Barcelona, I was going weekly to have tapas with friends.

When in Seville, you can take part in a variety of tour options that will give you a taste of the best tapas this region can offer, or check out a few tapas restaurants and bars on your own. However you do it, it’s one of the best things to do in Seville.
