It’s not the easiest place to find, located up on the roof of Pyramids Wafi, but Seville’s is worth seeking out if you’re in the mood for hearty Spanish fare in laid-back, casual surroundings. In cooler months, choose one of the many tables outside and eat under the stars. Exposed red brick walls greet diners on arrival, with seating around a curved central bar showing sports on a large screen, setting the tone for a pleasant, easygoing experience – in contrast to Dubai’s stiffer establishments. The restaurant is deservedly busy even on weeknights, which says it all really, with efficient staff serving up small plates of tasty tapas, including garlicky gampas pil pil, batatas bravas, Catalan salads, calamari and the like. If you can wait the 30-odd minutes it takes to cook up, order the paella marisco – a flavourful and filling combination of rice and seafood. Then kick back and soak in the sounds of the Spanish guitarists who play most nights.
Open Sat-Mon noon-1am, Tue-Fri noon-2am. Pyramids Wafi, Oud Metha, www.pyramidsrestaurantsatwafi.com (04 324 4777).
