El Rinconcillo -Since 1670, but Disappointing

El Rinconcillo is Seville’s oldest tapas bar and restaurant.  It has been around since 1670.


Downstairs is the tapas bar.  Since we had a reservation, we were told to go upstairs, and seated in the restaurant.

We started off with some Iberico Ham.


..and sardines on pickled vegetables.  They were largely disappointing.


…as were these anchovies and tomatoes.


…and lastly, shrimp.


I was not a fan of any of the dishes.  The shrimp lacked the taste of the sea in the head juices.  The meat was not sweet and delicious.  Service was a bit slow.  I think the main draw of this place is its history though I do not know how they stayed in business so long.  Would not return.  6/10
