Embracing the authentic and traditional elements of Sevillana gastronomy, this traditional bar space is located in the heart of El Arenal. By recreating a genuine neighbourhood bar, and combining Seville’s cultural traditions with contemporary influences that can be seen in the design as well as in the menu, Castizo offers a new way to experience tradition. Step inside this local bar and it’s cool design will embrace you with not only tradition, like the marble mosaic floor, but also a sense of fun (the loo has walls covered in dominos), while the main space has some cool contemporary design.
Here we tried memorable dishes, including Zamburiña scallops with chorizo, Chicharrones (pork belly rind) marinated in lime, low temperature cooked and then fried so super crispy on the outside and soft inside – as well as Seasonal mushrooms, Classic fried eggs and potatoes but with juicy prawns and Hake with roasted leeks, almonds and manzanilla sauce.

Decadent, exotic, sexy – Casa Ozama is something unique. A places for cocktails, music, fine dining – and fun, lots of fun.
Located in Seville’s Porvenir neighbourhood, Casa Ozama is housed in a stunning, 2000m2 villa built in 1912,with extensive gardens of centuries old palm trees. A glamorous and eclectic, and at times whimsical, interior design immerses diners in a more golden age of indulgent fun and high quality gastronomy. The kitchen specialises in grilled dishes of meat, fish and vegetables, such as Red Almadraban tuna tataki, grilled artichoke hearts Caesar style, Ajoblanco (chilled white garlic soup with almonds) with salmon caviar, grapes and smoked sardines.
What makes this destination so exciting is the number of unique ‘spaces’ available in the gardens and terraces, as well as across two floors of the villa. Ranging from Haina, the most exclusive area of the restaurant, and perfect for cocktail parties to Tiburón, one of Seville’s most exclusive bars, and Isabela, the cosiest bar area in the house, with views of Maria Luisa Park across the street, and Clandestino, a fun, private space for unique nights, although first you have to find it.
