Not just a vegan tapas bar, a cultural experience - Edit

The Alameda Rock is not just a vegan tapas bar, it is a place where locals from the neighborhood enjoy innovative tapas and beer. I have read through all the reviews for Alameda Rock and am disappointing with people who bring unrealistic expectations. This is a vegan tapas bar, not a 5 star restaurant. What is amazing about this place is sampling classic Andalucian tapas recipes that have been deliciously veganized.

Having eaten here several times, I was able to try over 10 types of tapas, all of them were great interpretations from the chef/owner.

If you want to experience this place come with the right expectations. Bring cash for payment. This is a local watering hole and you can join in the cultural experience.

Cons: cash for payment, microwave in use, service can vary from day to day

What a nice place!! - Edit

I had my first vegan tortilla at Alameda Rock and I loved it! The owner / the man working there was super friendly and really relaxt as well. The food was really good, although a bit oily, but so super tasty. I would describe it as a tapas bar and it's so nice to try out all kinds of different food. It is a really small place, but it was full with people the whole time and that was really nice. Definitely recommended!

Ran out of lots & cash only - Edit

It took us ages to walk here and by the time we arrived more than 3/4 of the menu was gone. My kids were really displeased.
The rice was nice but was served cold and everything else was zapped in the microwave. The food was tasty but it made a hasty appearance at the other end within a few hours!!!
It is also cash only and the nearest cash machine is not exactly close.
If I was in the area I might eat here again but I certainly wouldn't make a special trip to visit.

Pros: Vegan options, Rice is tasty

Cons: Cash only, Frequently run out of dishes

good little deli - Edit

I went with my mom, who is not vegan. We reserved 30 minutes in advance and it was not problem. David was awesome and very welcoming. Because of the late time (around 3.30ish pm) they have run out of few things so we order "strawberry salmorejo" to share. My mom had a very filling salad and I had the seitan al wiskey that was microwaved. It had tons of cumin !! Finally, we had a carrot cake that was simply fantastic. We had a nice time. I have to go back to try other things in the menu.

Pros: nice service, lot of options in the menu (if you arrive soon), gluten free options

Cons: small, it can run out of food

tasty food - Edit

Several dishes available. Also there are burgers and pizza. We arrived 15 minutes before closing time but the hostess was very nice to us.

She recomended some plates and baked us two pizzas very quickly. All the food was great and she was very nice. Also, she is a person that really cares about animal welfare, even invited us to attend a manifestation that same day.

Also, 2 pizzas, 3 tapas and 2 beers was 28€, wich I tought is a good price.

Pros: extremely friendly, tasty food, good price

Cons: a little messy

True chef at veganizing tapas - Edit

Reception and setting:
We bummed that we hadn't picked the hostel above this bar, but it might have been best for our wallets. The bar is located in the entrance hall of the hostel. This didn't bother us, as we were just very hungry and don't need a lot of atmosphere to enjoy our night. The chef welcomed us very warmly.
What we had:
The no-pork, the seitan in whisky (both tapas) and two pizza's: one with spinach and one with chorizo. Obviously those weren't the only things on the pizza's. We topped this off with 3 beers each.
What we paid:
Around 30-ish euro's. We consider this a good price for how much and good we ate.
Some thoughts:
The food was amazing, we got served really quick and we felt we had a complete meal. On the other side, the mixed crowd hanging around (with the hostel) made it less of a restaurant experience. This didn't bother us, but is worth mentioning to set up expectations. The capacity is completely beneath the fame this place deserves in my opinion, but i couldn't say how crowded it gets.

Some explanation:
On our trip through Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada my girlfriend and me went to this restaurant, so the rating should be taken in comparison to the others for a full overview. I've made a systematic overview, but don't take this too seriously, as my opinion could even conflict with my gf. Mind that the bill of this review needs to be split in two.

Pros: Outstanding tapas, Correctly priced, Warm atmosphere

Cons: Crowdiness could be possible, but no real cons

Great vegan bar - Edit

The place is so cozy (they changed the local that appear in the photographs from 2014) and it was quiet when we arrived. Pizza was excelent and dvery vegan product that substitute the original in each meat meal is so tasty that it's not possible to miss meat. Desserts are also awesome.
Great place for any meal and for a really good price.

Excellent service and food - Edit

We were a bit apprehensive after reading the other reviews but when we arrived at a few minutes after 8pm the owner was very pleasant and helpful. The food was really good and enjoyable. I enjoyed my burger and the chocolate brownie. The music played was a great accomplement to the meal.

Pros: Different choice of Vegan food from what you would, Excellent value.

Simple y con buenos precios - Edit

Lugar chiquitito, varias opciones de comida "fast food" vegana y otras cositas (todo vegano). Me encantaron particularmente las lasañas y la torta de chocolate. La pizza de bacón y el burger no pollo buenos pero no increíbles. La comida era ya preparada, todo se calentaba al micro-ondas. No hay WiFi, supuestamente es para los clientes del hostal (es hostal y bar/restaurante). La persona que nos atendió no fue tan amable. Los precios son bastante buenos, vale la pena ir para una comida simple y rápida.

Pros: Barato

Cons: Atención habría podido ser mucho mejor

Great little cafe - Edit

So nice to find a vegan tapas cafe in the heart of Seville! On a rainy evening, just walking round the corner from our hotel, there it was. Great food - we had fajitas, meat balls, lasagne and a salad. Tried to fit in the desserts, but the orange carrot cake and Sacher torte, while delicious, defeated us! Will certainly go again.

Pros: Great food, Good prices

Cons: A bit chilly this evening (it is January!)

Favorite place in Seville - Edit

Alameda Rock is the first vegan place I visited the first time I arrived in Seville a few years ago and it is still my favorite. The owner has a real passion for cooking vegan food and finding new dishes and tastes. The menu is full of vegan delicacies and even my non-vegan friends liked what they tried. Last time I went I tried the no-chicken with mustard sauce, delicious as always, and I even managed to get the recipe! It's a must-go if you are a vegan (or not) in Seville :-)

Pros: Great variety of menu items, Friendly service, Inexpensive

Cons: Small place, Not too cozy

tasty but... - Edit

Waitress friendly but I think the waiter, perhaps a little less so to foreigners.

The faux bittersweet pork & mustard chicken, both with rice, and the tortilla (X potato cake) very tasty. Good prices for tasty food - but note they are microwaved. It's not the poshest of places but good option for a cheap & tasty dinner.

Rude staff! - Edit

While I had high expectations of Alameda Rock, my experience here was very disappointing. I went for a vegan wrap and an ordered an soja ice coffee. The waiter gave me an hot soja coffee instead, but I was fine with that, mistakes happen.

After a not so special wrap I was still sitting there on a table with my laptop when the waiter came and said that it is not an internet café, in other words: if I could leave asap so other customers could sit at my table. This was so rude in my opinion, no apologies or nothing. I left and decided to never return here.

I did not feel welcome at all.

Best vegan place in all Seville! - Edit

My favourite vegan restaurant in Seville ! The chief and cook is really nice, the place is small but lively and the food is really great. I especially recommend the fajita, the meatballs and the sweet and sour pork.

Pros: There's a good price/quality relation.

Just ok - Edit

I was there last week, which gives me flashbacks of Sevilla, if you haven't gone, you have to go.
The owner and cook was there when I went and he was doing an interview or photo-shoot or something along the lines. He was polite but seemed to be a little simple due to the other tasks he was doing. The food's presentation is amazing. However, I was not blown away with the flavors. We had the hamburgers. He makes his own patties and I can only assume that they're made with chick peas as they have that flavor. I was expecting a little more texture I guess. I did not try the rest of the food so I cannot be a good judge of full menu. I speak fluent Spanish so I had no problems communicating. However, I was able to witness another tourist ordering and the owner brought him a menu in English and made good efforts to communicate with him.

Pros: Affordable, Varied menu, nice environment

Cons: Small location

tasteless - Edit

a big negative surprise.
A lot of vegan options, close to the Alameda de Hercules, so really central.
The waiter did not make much effort to comunicate with us ( talk to us in spanish without even looking at us..).
Pointless food, great offer on the menu but poor in terms of savour and pleasure in the plate.

Pros: central

Cons: average products, average service

Good vegan food in relaxed environment - Edit

I've visited this place on a number of occasions and it's always worthwhile. Reasonable prices, very nice tapas and friendly staff and atmosphere. It's the kind of place you can comfortably go on your own with a book, or with a group of friends.

I particularly like the vegan pizzas and frankfurters, but there's nothing I've had that I haven't liked so far. If you're in the area and looking for some tapas you can't go wrong here.

SPEED REVIEWING - Edit

Because of an extreme shortage of time we dropped-in at this eatery wanting to sample their Vegan tapas with only 15 minutes available - but it was so worth it! The food and drink was excellent! Thanks to to proprietor David Mauser who responded to our request for food fast...

Also, as this restaurant is located in the ground floor of La Caja Habitada hostel Calle Credito we had a swift guided tour by the proprietor Fernanda - a lovely woman and an attractive hostel - which, with this restaurant situated right there in the same building, would make an excellent and totally logical Vegan holiday accommodation.

Cozy place for delicious vegan tapas - Edit

We loved this little tapas place. You could taste the food was prepared with love. No sophisticated, expensive cuisine but lasagna and meatballs the way your mom would make them. Tasty, inexpensive and cozy. We will definitely come back next time we're in Sevilla!

Pros: Comfort food, Good value, Friendly owner

good little cafe - Edit

We went looking for this place for a change to the standard restaurants in Seville and wished we'd gone earlier. The menu was a bit limited when we were there as they had just opened after the weekend and still had to prepare some things but there was still a reasonable choice for vegans. We both had vegan pizza which were both very nice and very good value. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place.

Pros: good value, firendly staff, good food

Is there anybody out there? - Edit

I would love to be able to review the food itself. However, since they are not open when they say they will be; I cannot.

I have gone there 3 times only to be told they are closed; come back at another time. When I come back; they still aren't open. Yet, I am stuck with the bill from the parking garage.

Cons: not open

Best veggie in Seville - Edit

We ate at the main veggie places all around town and some veggie friendly places too. Alameda Rock was the best by far. The very friendly, helpful and happy waiter, who was running the whole place, was great and the food was fantastic and inexpensive. The beers were super cold on a very hot 40c plus day. We had the tortilla, meatballs and tomato sauce and the veggie burger. All were very good and hit the spot. The place has a fun young vibe as it is next to youth hostel and a police station. All kinds of people were coming in and out of this great little place. If we lived in town, we would be seen here often.

Pros: All veggie or vegan

Cons: small and European smokers

Tapas sharing in Alameda - Edit

I went to Alameda rock with two non-vegetarian friends on Friday evening. We ordered a number of different tapas (houmus, felafel, fried peppers, seitan sandwiches/montaditos, salmoreho...) and we shared them among ourselves. With a total of 6 tapas we left the place completely full and absolutely satisfied. The people are friendly, the prices are low (on average 3 euro each tapa, and considering that with two of those you are fine, it's not expensive at all).
We were outside so we couldn't enjoy the music, but they have good musical tastes too!
Great place, and I am glad I now have a place for evening tapas in Sevilla (the Veganitessen offers tapas but only at lunchtime)!

UPDATE April 2015
I went to the new Alameda Rock, which is now at the ground floor of La Caja Habitada, a hostel in Calle Credito. The place is small, but there are a few tables. Tapas are nice (essentially similar to what they were offering before, but they are adding new stuff as time goes by), and they have a big selection of drinks.

Pros: Great choice of tapas, Fabolous location, Cheap

Awesome variety of vegan tapas! - Edit

Super friendly tapas place with tons of vegan menu. Espinaca con garbanzo is soo great (well this is common in every other tapas bar and already vegan I guess. But still!) and the burgers, meatballs, pasta were all not amazingly great nice. Its good to have many vegan tapas choice and you dont have to ask all the time since they already have separate list of menu for vegan tapas. Staff are super friendly (thus great help in improving or improvising my non existing Spanish) and price is also quite inexpensive.

Pros: Super friendly & quick, Large choice & tasty, Inexpensive

Cons: Mostly microwaved i think, Not the healthiest
