Such a bizarre experience. We went for lunch on a Tuesday right at opening, and there was a guy in the restaurant watching tv, who ignored us at first then engaged us as if he worked there, handing us menus and saying the waiter would be right with us. The menus were pretty dirty and looked different than the ones pictured in reviews, which didn’t give me confidence. It also had a (non GF) sandwich shop menu for “Slurps Subs” which I didn’t find any record of in reviews. We found a table outside. The waiter came out a few minutes later and I asked him if they had GF options and protocol for x-contact, to which he curtly answered “yes” with no further information. After a few more questions he finally, sounding annoyed, offered “yes, we’re kind of known for that.” Given the mostly good reviews on the app and yelp, I decided to stick it out and ordered off the gluten free menu. Tortilla española, gambas, and kebab were fine, but shrimp was overcooked and nothing tasted stellar. I haven’t had a bad reaction yet but it’s only been a couple hours. Will edit my review if I do have symptoms. To top it off, we had our 2 year old with us, and my husband was walking around the outdoor seating area (where literally no one else was seated) to get some Willie’s out before lunch. The waiter said “wow, he’s a stomper. Feel bad for anyone living under you if there is,” and walked away. So, wouldn’t say the place is particularly kid friendly, despite how casual and arguable unkempt it is…

I wanted to love this place but honestly didn’t! We stopped on a rainy day so perhaps the atmosphere was a bit off. I was excited to try the gf fresh bread but it was not good. It was hard rice like sourdough bread and not what I expected. Disappointed! My husband had the Paella which he said was ok. We shared the almond raspberry tarte for dessert which again was disappointing. The sangria was good!

Have come here twice in the last 9 months (once on a Saturday in October and once on a Tuesday in April) and both times the restaurant was closed. Don’t bother making the drive!

Awesome place! They make their own gluten free bread onsite, and the gluten bread is made offsite. Lots of GF options and the food was fabulous. Currently they are open Fridays for dinner, Saturdays and Sundays for lunch and dinner.

This place is open and didn’t close after the pandemic, they are open Fri-Sun for dinner only. A ton of GF options. The GF bread basket was delicious and so fluffy. The Tortilla Española looked small but was filling. My husband (not GF) enjoyed the Piquillo Peppers Relleno de Queso and Pinchos Morunos. For dessert, we ordered the Tarta de Santiago and GF decadence. The Decadence is enormous, so something to share. The Tarta was heavy but delicious - a little on the sweater side with the raspberry sauce. Great place to enjoy some GF dinner.

I did not get sick. But I did think it was too expensive for the quality. Maybe I just chose poorly with my tapas selection. Got the pork slow cooked in white wine. The flan was tasty though. Got pretty busy at lunch time.

Following great reviews and being recently to Seville (the name attracted me) we decided to stop for lunch at Seville Tapas visiting Half Moon Bay. It was unfortunate experience. I asked for sandwich on gluten free bread and ordered couple of tapas without bread. Tapas came with some kind of cookies. When I asked if those were gluten free the waitress just took them back and promised to bring home made gluten free bread. The bread never materialized. Next came the sandwich. I asked if the bread was gluten free and the waitress took it back to check. After long time she came back saying they are making another one with GF bread. Finally the sandwich showed up. Since I did not get sick I assume the last one was gluten free. Bottom line - if you are celiac or gluten intolerant stay away from this place. Staff is not train on allergies and does not understand how hard to live with life long disease.

Amazing food. Very tasty and the stuff is fully aware of celiac. You can get a basket of gluten free bread as well. Menu clearly state the gluten free food which is very wide selection.

Excellent! The star of the show was the almond cake (dairy free!) - delicious, moist and dense, and a generous slice to boot. We took that to go and had it for breakfast. I would've gone back for more the next day if they'd been open. The tapas we had for dinner were lovely as well - well-prepared, authentic Spanish food, high-quality olive oil. Made me feel like I was back in Barcelona. Sure, they charge for the GF bread, but I think that's only fair. I could hear the server hovering over the guy preparing the dishes, making absolutely sure what was supposed to be GF came out GF.

Very good experience. The restaurant is very quaint and has a good vibe. Order at the counter and sit inside or out. The food a little while to prepare but worth the wait. We ordered a sampler platter of little sandwiches and a Brie cheese tapa. All were very tasty. The gluten free bread was very good. Great flavor and texture. We also enjoyed a glass of sangria. The perfect end to our long day.

The menu has tons of GF choices. The bread is by gluten free nation. The bread was spongy and soft enough to dip in olive oil. The food they put on bread is tasty as well. The wait staff is friendly with good atmosphere. I will eat here again. A side note. There is an extra charge for the GF bread.

The owner is very aware of gluten-free. As with any restaurant, you have to be careful and double check. Once they gave me croutons and I said "Sorry, it's supposed to be gluten-free." The waiter apologized and said "I'm so sorry. We will make a new one right away." It was nice that I didn't have to tell them that. The food is delicious as well as the wine. The owner is from Spain so the food is authentic. The gf rolls are really good. I think you get a lot of food for the $$.

I was surprised to find so many things to eat after dropping in on a whim just to check and see if they could feed me. The menu has a GF symbol next to the gluten free items. They have GF bread and will make the pepitos (little sandwiches) on GF bread. Soup! Sandwiches! Dessert! If you aren't familiar with Spanish cuisine, you may find it strange. Also, extra $ for the GF rolls. I had a bowl of gazpacho and a pepito and had to bring my dessert home because I was too full. Counter service. Outdoor patio.
