Description: The oldest Tavern in Spain gets its name from an old esparto grass weaver who delivered wine and hand crafted brooms that once hung from the ceiling. Nowadays, it is a restaurant and terrace next to the Cathedral, where you can savour exquisite tapas and traditional Andalusian dishes. We have breakfast from 09:00am to 12:00pm

We were recommended to this place by our hotel receptionist and like other writers thought it might be a rip off as it is so near the Cathedral. We were wrong. The food is very good, the service attentive and the price reasonable. It wasn't the best place we have eaten but it was fine with a good and varied menu.

Much like other reviewers we went in here with low expectations as its a tourisyy place very near the cathedral; but we were very hungry and couldn't get in to the places we wanted to go.

However, we got a warm welcome and were quickly seated by a friendly waitress.

I had tge roast lamb which was a very generous portion and was very good. My wife and daughter shared the pork sirloin that they also enjoyed.

The desserts were very good too.

We all came away very impressed.

I travel in despair of tourist restaurants. Tired decore, tired food and generally poor value. Las Escobas at first sight appears to be one such restaurant, but we found the food tasty (and plentiful), the service energetic and the prices very reasonable. While not a top class restaurant, Las Escobas is worth seeking out for a pleasant lunch or more extended evening meal.

hopefully we found this nice restaurant after visiting the city. it has a special/strange arrangement of the furniture... sometimes it looks like they just took what they had and made a restaurant out of it. but it has also his own charm the way it is. quite noisy when there are a lot of people, but special. the food we had was very very good. we went there two times and tried almost all tapas. goat cheese with marmelade was great, also the tapas with artichokes was great. waiter was friendly, but not very happy to work there I guess. but despite of this, I can recommend this restaurant, for the special furniture and the good food.

Antigua Taberna was our most disappointing meal out in Seville. The sauteed vegetable plate for 9 Euros was at best one-cup of julienned onions, carrots, peppers, and a few beans and mushrooms fried to a very overcooked oily sauteed mess. A garnish salad would have had more vegetables than this 9 Euro vegetable plate. What was the cook thinking? The spinach with garbonzos was also poorly done, a dish which we ordered at every restaurant for comparison. Cross this restaurant off your list and choose one of the many others in town. Worst value for our money.
