El Pintón – Seville

Seville is a great place to eat well, and this part of Spain should be better known for its food, which is universally fresh, simple, and delicious. We were blown away by how dynamic, not to mention affordable, the food scene in Seville is. Of course, we expected to be enjoying lots of delicious tapas and other traditional Spanish meals in restaurants and markets, but what surprised us was how much variety and amazing quality there is.

If you and your special someone are looking for a fun and buzzy spot with one of the most exciting menus in the city, look no further. El Pintón serves fresh and inventively produced fusion twists on the classics. Located in a former textile warehouse and decorated to perfection with fresh aesthetic by Madrid-based designers Cristina Domínguez Lucas and Fernando Hernández-Gil.

Treat yourself and order loads to share. The standout dish for me was their battered egg in truffle polenta, and I would happily live off it for the rest of my days. Be sure to order up a class (or a jug) of white sangria. It’s sweet but utterly fresh and zesty.

A stylish eatery in the heart of the city centre and perfect if you fancy something different.
 Book ahead (needed for weekend evenings).

      I didn’t have that many pictures of the food but everything we tried (on quite a few occasions) was delicious and fresh. And the interiors, of course, are just gorgeous!

      I asked the restaurant for the white sangria recipe and scribbled it down on napkin, which I then lost – nooooooo! I need to find the recipe somehow and share it here, it was so delicious.

    I love the aesthetic of this place, especially the wood chairs and tables, another great place 🙂

    Wow, the long table with the stars on the tabletop, mint and yellow chairs, and bench? How do I replicate that exact look in my dining room?? I think El Pinton is my new table #goals! lol

    I just love Spain. I wasn’t lucky enough to go to Seville, but next time I will. It looks just stunning!

      This was our first time in Seville as well and now we can’t wait to explore more of Andalucia region – there are so many gorgeous cities and villages.
