Concierge.com's insider take:
Don't be fooled by Abantal's location in an anonymous small street near the city center, or its low-key, neutral interior. This contemporary Andalusian restaurant is one of only two Michelin-starred options in Seville (you'll find the other at EME Catedral hotel). The tasting menu offers either seven or nine good-size courses, with or without wines (including sherry, cava, and dessert wine). Dishes include unusual regional ingredients such as sweet chivo lechal malagueño (milk-fed kid from Málaga) and tender liebre (hare), as well as the popular tartar de atún (tuna tartare), plus a new twist on famous Andalusian dishes such as salmorejo, a thick, smooth chilled soup that here is made with tangy beets rather than the typical tomatoes. Regional wines feature prominently on the list: There are semisweet whites and reds from Seville province, plus a pinot noir from the award-winning winemaker Los Aguilares in Ronda.—Fiona Flores Watson
