Taberna del Alabardero, Seville $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Located on a narrow back street in the Arenal barrio, near the Maestranza bullring and the Guadalquivir River, the Taberna del Alabardero is a romantic, salmon-hued, 19th-century town house (formerly the home of poet Juan Antonio Cavestany). The sunny patio has wicker furniture and a fountain, and the tiled rooftop terrace overlooks the cathedral. Inside, the seven classic Andalusian rooms have parquet floors, stately 19th-century furniture, and fine linens. Each is individually decorated (opt for third-floor rooms, which have whirlpool tubs.) The excellent Taberna Del Alabardero restaurant serves upscale Andalusian food (such as beef with truffles and red wine) and a fine selection of local wines.
