On a short weekend, I rarely visit one restaurant twice over. Nor do I get the same dessert twice. But La Azotea’s orange zabaglione, mint ice cream and gin granita won me over. The staff were generally friendly, the cooks working from a cupboard-sized kitchen to turn out inventive plates, from traditional croquetas to chickpeas to melt-in-the-mouth beef. For dinner, go early to avoid the Spanish crowd that flood in around 9.30-10pm, or later for a few bites (or a dessert!) to end your evening.
La Azotea – Calle Jesús del Gran Poder, 31, 41002 Sevilla
Open 1-4.30pm, and 8.30pm-midnight. Closed Sunday/Monday, no reservations evenings or weekends.
N.B. There is another Azotea in the old centre of the city but the menu was not as varied.
