Description: Al Medina Restaurant, Morocco in the center of Seville.. Nothing would be more important to us that every customer would feel part of this culture through Al-Medina and its gastronomy. So we hope that curiosity is the prelude to the knowledge of gastronomy, Arabic, it has a lot to offer and teach those who know that eating is more than just satisfy hunger.

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating at Al-Medina on two occasions this week. The first time we found ourselves in the restaurant on a quiet evening. We dived into the menu and found ourselves having difficulty in making a choice. We love Moroccan food and with the prospect it would be our only time to eat in this restaurant, we decided to order more than we could eat so we could try as many things as possible. When we asked the owner / host for suggestions he guided us to from starters to wine selections - all Moroccan. We indulged in hummus, a Berber Salad, a chicken pastelas, and the royal couscous all accompanied with a Moroccan wine. With each bite we were in paradise. Absolutely great!

The following day we were trying to figure out where to eat on New Years Eve. We immediately thought...why not go back and enjoy another great meal at Al-Medina. So we did. We were joined by to wonderful ladies at our table and the meal on this occasion proved even more satisfying. We had the grilled pepper salad, the Berber salad, the chicken pastelas and a Tagine with lamb, honey and almonds. It was amazing. We both agreed it was the perfect meal. The tagine may have been the best lamb dish I have ever had...and...given I have had lamb throughout North Africa and the Middle East - that is a bold claim. On this occasion, we had the pleasure of a belly dancer as midnight approached. With the New Year, we sipped champagne and had our 12 lucky grapes for th e new year. A perfect night.

So for us...two occasions...two fabulous meals...and if I were in Seville again...I would return again. So just go...have a great meal...let the owner be your guide...you won't be disappointed.

If you have never had Moroccan food...then you must try it. Be brave and you will be rewarded.

I awared Al-Medina....SIX STARS. Thank you to the owner...a fine gentlemen and wonderful host.

This has to be one the best meals ever - 3 of us shared hummus, salad, chicken tagine & lamb tagine both with prunes and I find it hard to pick the best. Spanish rose - Penescal - is exceptional value. The decor makes you feel you are in Morrocco and the staff are delightful. This is our 2nd visit and we will come again.

Delicious cous-cous salad, lentil soup, savory chicken. This restaurant is a joy to sit in with its attractive appointments. The food was fresh and we had a lovely bottle of Rioja for 9 euros.

Fantastic food and service. The food is traditional and generous servings. It feels like being in Morocco in the center of Seville. The Hummus and the moroccan salad is worth trying

The restaurant is nicely decorated, the staff is very friendly but the food is really disappointing. The tajines are ridiculously small and totally lack vegtables (just meat), same for the cous cous. Plus each dish is about 15 euros! Do not reccomend it.

Good morning Dear customer, we regret that the dishes you chose was disappointing for you. On our menu there are several tajines and depending on the type selected it will be vegetable or not. All our cous-cous, except the chicken couscous, have 7 types of vegetables. I can assure you that we have a great value for money. However, your opinion is very important and we will take it into account.Best regards
