The worst culinary experience in many years. Made me feel like a fool for not walking out on such pathetic excuse of a meal. Rice so dry and burnt it practically had to be chiseled out of the pan. Cold, canned paella would probably have been better than what was served to us. The Seville Chamber of Commerce should close... More

Nice place to sit outside and soak in the atmosphere. Arrived quite late, so nice to get served. Vegetarian option was good, which wasn't the case for a lot of places in Seville

So many good restaurants to choose from so don't choose this one. Bad service. Food very average. Waste paper bin by the table with a nappy in. Need I say more! We just saw paella and sat down. Big mistake.

I'm a bit ashamed to fall into this tourist trap, but the nice location and the sweet sun got me confused. Bad service, small portions and very average taste. Better go elsewhere.

This has been literally the worst food experience in Spain. The food is overpriced and it tastes aweful. Drinks are twice as expensive as most other restaurants in town. Service is slow. Also, if you pay with credit card make sure that you pay in Euros and not your home currency as you will pay another hefty 10% surcharges.

Christmas eve and trying to find somewhere to eat as most places are closed. This place was open!. The choices for me were Spaghetti Bolognese, Lasagne, Meat Pizza. I ordered the Pizza. about an hour later it arrived, it was a Pizza base with Bolognese sauce on. I think no matter which of the three dishes available to me, they... More

Terrible food. Over oily and sweet salad. The worst paella. They even managed to burn the rice. Total rip off.

My wife, two children and I ate dinner here in Seville in December 2016. Dona Francisquita is located in a side street with many restaurants not far from the Seville Cathedral. I started with a so-called Caesar salad that was for a lack of a better word horrible. But my mushroom risotto was very good. The waiter messed up my... More

I wish I could assigned zero or negative stars. Unfortunatley, I failed to check the TripAdvisor rating until after we sat down. At first, I thought someone had a grudge because of all the one-star reviews, but we soon lerned the service and food really was that bad. A number of other reviews complained about the Paella. If you're going... More

The paella was not fresh, just warmed o the oven... The pasta was tasteless... Just one single bread to eat with other starters was 1.5 euros... Most part of the desserts of the menu were not available... The service was terrible, even without almost no client... I didn't have courage even to ask for a coffee at the end...
