After a walk around Basilica de Jesus del Gran Poder, many visitors stop by this bar. Guests highlight that they like Mediterranean and Spanish cuisines at La Azotea. Degust mouthwatering spanish tapas, tuna and calamari at this place. If hungry, come here for tasty gelato, lemon sorbet and chocolate custard.

The great location of this spot makes it easy to reach even in rush hours. It's a must when visiting this bar to drink good desert wine, Sangria or fino sherry. Great chocolate frappe, cortado or espresso will make your meal better and you'll surely come back. The atmosphere of hospitality of La Azotea highly depends on the staff, that is cool here. If you want to enjoy fabulous service, you should go to this place. From the visitors' point of view, prices are average. The divine decor and pleasant atmosphere let clients feel relaxed here. The rating awarded by Frommer's is 3 stars, so this spot is an exceptional place.

First, please note there are many Azotea locations - (seems almost like franchises - where it is challenging for the original chef/owners to maintain the original purity and quality of their vision.) I have gone to Azoteas many times and have a love-hate relationship with them.  Tapas often original, seafood fresh, reliable classics on the menu, and daily specials that often stand out as exceptional. I only know their tapa locations - have never gone to their more formal "Tienda" on Barracas. This review is about Azotea on Gran Poder.   My main complaint is the inconsistency - from the kitchen, and even more-so, from the service staff, which is second only to food in importance to one's restaurant experience. My recent Sunday visit started with seating followed by no drink order until we less-than-subtly requested after 5-10 minutes. Even by Spanish standards, this felt awkward. When we ordered wine, a large brusk waiter poured me a small amount, I tasted - it was a great albarino (they do have good wine), I put the glass back on the counter for my pour and he had walked away. When flagged down - he said that was my glass. We ordered a tapa, with some effort, with a young woman who seemed upset we ordered food at her restaurant that day. After another 10 minutes or more, we were hungry, others were served around us. The large guy said we had to wait  - and here is the final straw - we were not offered olives, bread, water. In Spain - No olives? Waited another 5-10 minutes and, for the second time in 58 years, I requested to pay and left. I'm unlikely to take out-of-towners here again, or ever go back on a Sunday. Azotea -good restaurant but a bit of a crapshoot.  Note to owner : Hold on tight to the soft-spoken gentleman who has worked this location for many years. He holds the service together and with one nod makes customers know they are cared for in a crazy busy restaurant. Skilled, seasoned service professionals even make food taste better.
We were told to go to the other place for tapas just down the road. It was jammed packed and we were told this was a close second. It did not disappoint! Wish we had more time in Sevilla to try out more of the items. Service was great and the food was better - highly recommend.
This location of La Azotea consists of a sit down restaurant, and a more casual sister spot, La Tierra, across the street where you can order tapas. We checked out La Tierra since they had open seats (but we were reassured that the two places were the same). We got the coquinas (baby clams) and the burrata. Coquinas had good flavor but were too gritty (seemed to have sand) for our tastes. Burrata was an interesting dish, loved how the leaves / sorbet / tomato / sugar worked with the burrata - such a surprising combo that works. But the burrata itself wasn't the best. A bit tasteless and too rubbery in my opinion. All in all, disappointed by my experience here, especially since prices are also relatively high compared to most other places in Seville.
