In a city that has no shortage of restaurants serving delicious tapas at unbelievably low prices, La Pulpería has something that most gastrobars in Sevilla lack, charm. The interior is quirky and warm with an eclectic mix of furniture and decor, but not in the cliche way that seems to have become a trend in many Spanish restaurants. There is something about a meal here that makes you feel at home and the tapas menu, an updated mix of Spanish comfort food, reinforces that feeling.

This is the kind of place that invites you to hang around and enjoy yourself. With friendly and attentive service, food made with care, work on display from a rotating selection of artists, a sunny little terrace, wifi and even board games, it’s easy to imagine La Pulpería as the perfect neighborhood go-to. Although, on the Iberian peninsula, the word “pulpería” refers to a place that specializes in pulpo (octopus), La Pulpería in this case draws on the Latin American term for a general store and tavern. When you think of it in that sense, the name is quite fitting, like a general store, you can find pretty much anything you’d want here, from a merienda among friends to market-fresh especialidades, and they even serve pulpo.
