Not as good as it used to be – a bit disappointing: Restaurant Maison Manesse (4. January 2020)

It’s about three years ago since I’ve last been to the Maison Manesse – and my expectations were accordingly high, given every single time I’ve been there in the past, it was a blast. Now, to state the important things upfront – they aren’t anymore as they used to be. I went for the “I […]

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Absolutely lovely local experience: Restaurant El Rinconcillo (3. January 2020)

Somehow, the El Rinconcillo is an institution in Sevilla – wherever you check for restaurant recommendations, the El Rinconcillo pops up. Now, if you go before 7pm, you’ll just get food at the counter and will have to ‘stand around’ to eat your food and drink your glass of wine. Therefore, I would recommend you […]

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

Good for breakfast before you queue at Real Alcazar: Restaurant Taberna El Papelón (3. January 2020)

When you are looking for a place which serves a small snack in the morning, the Taberna El Papelón is rather perfect as it basically a little café where they have understood the concept of swift service (which is not absolutely normal in Spain). I asked for a tea and a “Bocadillo de Jamón Ibérico […]

Good but more one than two Michelin stars: Restaurant Bardal (2. January 2020)

Good but more one than two Michelin stars: Restaurant Bardal (2. January 2020)

In the little town of Ronda which is famous for it’s Greek-style white houses and is located quite a bit up in the mountains, there is more to see than just the atmosphere. They also have a Michelin-starred restaurant with two Michelin stars (definitely not something you’d expect there)! The Bardal requires a down payment […]

Fair for a quick stop: Café Puerta 2 (2. January 2020)

Fair for a quick stop: Café Puerta 2 (2. January 2020)

Given, almost nothing was open in the early morning, I was happy to stumble upon the Café Puerta 2 (named like that due to its vicinity to the second gate of the bull fight arena) because it was rather cold outside. The place is very simple but the waitress is friendly and swift in serving […]

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

Surprisingly lovely place in a hostel: Restaurant El Disparate (1. January 2019)

The El Disparate was recommended by the Guide Michelin 2020 app. When I arrived there I was rather surprised as the restaurant is part of a hostel. Now, prejudice or not, I did not expect a restaurant recommended by the Guide Michelin to be located in a hostel. However, the fact that I got the […]

An outstanding gem I randomly encountered: Restaurant Recoveco (1. January 2020)

An outstanding gem I randomly encountered: Restaurant Recoveco (1. January 2020)

Sometimes, you randomly find a little gem and the Recoveco was exactly that! While actually being on the way to the hotel, I passed the Recoveco which looked super appealing, so I decided to have a late lunch here instead. As an amuse bouche, “blue potato and pork belly” was served. The pork belly wasn’t […]

Lender of last resort – only if you have to: Love Horno Artesano (1. January 2020)

The Love Horno Artesano was one of the few places which was open in the morning on January 1st, so it was the place of choice for a brief breakfast. I went for a “bocadillo de tomato y anchoas con queso y jamón iberico” (EUR 4.35) which was actually quite okay. What wasn’t so okay […]
