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

Once again we found ourselves lured into a restaurant by its fabulous exterior but one look at the menu told us we'd probably made a big mistake but we took a chance only to regret it later. In its favour is its friendly service but the quick turnaround of food suggests it's pre-cooked and a re-heated in a microwave oven to order. My lunch of fried fish was ghastly and over priced.

The foods were bad and one of us got sick because of it. We didnt like the restaurant at all.. But in sevilla many restaurants are bad and it was very hard to find a good restaurant.. This restaurant was also very bad..

We enjoyed our visit, not just for the very good food but also for the excellent service in the hands of friendly and jovial staff.
The ambience is first class although the big screen TV on the wall is seriously out of place. They were showing the USA Grand Prix last night and, thankfully, they didn't have the sound on but it is an unwelcome distraction when dining.
Try it out, it's a good restaurant.

Our first experience with tapas and it was really good. We had 4 different kinds and they all tasted super. Great location next to the cathedral in a carfree street. Great service too!

Very disappointed, beautiful ambiance but the food is not good, I ordered a seafood paella, which was not served in a paella dish like other restaurants in Sevilla, instead I was served a plate of rice with just One prawn on top. My husband ordered the 5 tapas , which were mostly vegetables and the rest , one could not say what one was eating.
