Al Aljibe, Seville

Seville, Spain, Europe
76 Alameda de Hércules
Spain 41002
Tel: 34 954 900 591's insider take:

With a quiet, shady patio full of climbing plants, just off the bohemian Alameda avenue, Al Aljibe is one of the prettiest and best-located tapas spots in Seville. The Colombian chef combines Asian, Spanish, and South American elements in his small plates. Offerings include mussels with spicy sauce, cucumber, and mint; and pork with white corn pancakes and coriander Huancaína (Peruvian cheese sauce). The first floor has a cozy dining room where you can order full meals (try the suckling pig with tropical fruit), but it's the second-floor terrace that is hard to beat, with views over the Alameda and beds of aromatic herbs to scent your evening meal (avoid lunch times in the searingly hot summer). Service isn't always sharp, so just sit back, watch the local eccentrics passing, and soak it up.—Fiona Flores Watson
