Cold food - Edit

We visited this restaurant after seeing a few good reviews (and we were staying nearby) - the restaurant was quiet when we arrived (one table just finishing, and one other just ordering) - we ordered two main meals, which took a quite a while to be delivered (fair enough if they are cooking eveything fresh). However, the fish was cold, the chips and potatoes were cold and the veggie burger was luke-warm. It was probably the worst meal we have ever had. It would have been nice had they have not let it sit around and go cold! Does the chef not check the food before it goes out? If they can't cope with only a few orders, I don't know how they will manage in the height of summer when the restaurant is full! We did tell the staff as we were walking out.

Pros: Nicely decorated restaurant

Cons: Food had been left sitting around and gone cold

Good food but be very careful to specify you want vegan - Edit

The food was good and staff friendly but I’ve given a low rating as you need to be very careful with the menu and the allergy list - we ordered vegetable tempura which was marked as vegan on their menu but then it came out with prawns. Other items were labelled vegan but then the allergy list would list e.g. eggs. It was really confusing as they have marked things as vege or vegan on their menu but it’s definitely not always the case and I assume they just meant it could be made vegan (which is not what the staff or the menu said). The staff were nice and food fine but just need to be extra careful and it would be great if they could make their menu and service clearer.

Deception - Edit

I was very excited when I found the restaurant. But the food was disappointing. Small portion sizes and not exceptionally good either. The wine was nice though

Delicious - Edit

Lentil salad and croquettas are both amazingly tasty. Menu says what can be veganised and our server was clear when bringing them out assuring us they were vegan. We ordered 5 dishes, and it was reasonably priced. Best vegan meal we've had so far in Seville, and we've been to a few veg*n places.

platos divertidos y ricos no implican costes - Edit

Tienen 4 o 5 opciones en carta, vegetarianas o veganas. Fuera de carta siempre tienen los mismos platos, 2 opciones veganas o vegetarianas. Platos nada elaborados, aburridos, sin mucho sabor y carísimos. Ser vegetariano o vegano no es costoso, sólo implica creatividad y cariño a la hora de cocinar. No entiendo por qué en muchos sitios intentan tomarnos el pelo con los precios

DELICIOUS! - Edit

What a find! Amazing vegan food (have the spinach and mushroom croquettes - I nearly cried they were so good), meaty options for others. Normal prices, great location, lovely decor. Our waiter spoke incredible English too and was super friendly. Would highly recommend and will return soon.

Pros: amazing food, vegan, veggie and meat options, location

Cons: serves meat I suppose could be a con

art and taste - Edit

I am not sure what happened to the last reviewer who seemed to have a horrible experience here but that was not our experience at all.
We enjoyed our lunch here as it was flavorful.
We had the potato salad, no mayonnaise, made with oil and vinegar, lentil salad, tempura vegetable which were very lightly battered and nice and crisp. I had the couscous with vegetables and rice pudding for dessert. We really enjoyed our meal here more than other places we tried. The atmosphere is pleasant and we met other diners here as well. Will go again.

Pros: good food, vegan clearly marked, Nice atmosphere

Aggression. Customer assaulted by the owner. - Edit

I went to dinner at the restaurant Arte y Sabor and ordered a dish with vegetable mayonnaise asking not carry sugar (explaining that some brands of vegetable drink inflame added as an ingredient lead). They put vegetable mayonnaise with sugar and salt to conceal much more.I told them I did not want mayonnaise because he had sugar. The chef, owner of the restaurant, told me that the vegetable drink had no added sugar. I told him that if had and please teach me the box. He refused to show it, many times. I asked for a letter of complaint and denied it me . Then I remove the phone and started recording. The chef and restaurant owner I could not cry recorded and kept recording as I threw the phone down hand wringing . I went to the police station that night to denounce them and I showed the police the videos in which they refuse often to give me a complaint form (still I have no complaint form ) and I pulled my cell phone violently hitting my hand. I friend of mine, vegan as me, put the video uploaded on the youtube channel with the name Restaurante Arte y Sabor .

Pros: had a police station close to denounce the aggress

That seitan tho! - Edit

The menu lists clearly what's available for vegans, which is always nice. I go there often as the selection of vegans tapas is wide and varied. What's more, they make the best seitan I've ever had. Don't forget to ask about daily additions to the menu.
The place itself is small but nice. The location is great, especially when you can sit on the terrace, and they decorate the place with artwork from local artists.
The staff is great, really friendly and they can speak English or French if necessary.

It's hard to find places that are 100% vegan in Seville so the fact they serve meat and fish isn't a big deal.

On the down side, the quality of the dishes varies. I remember being in love with their lentil salad a few years back but I'm not a fan now.

I highly recommend, though!

Pros: Location, decoration, friendly staff, the seitan

Cons: Quality not always great

Best place to eat with non vegan - Edit

Me (vegan) and my now husband (non vegan) felt like we could really enjoy a nice lunch and dinner together, which is not an easy thing. Everything we had was awesome, from the olives to dishes , salads, tapas and desserts. And the sangria was one of the best we had in Spain!!! love this place, wont forget it.

nice and central - Edit

ok, 50% 50%, there.
Good location, terrace ( important in such a sunny city ), super friendly waiter and waitress, english and french correctly spocken.
Also they have meat anf fish, the majotity of the dishes are vegetarian with some vegan options.
Now, the quality of the products could be way better.
Can and should improve.

Pros: central, terrace, nice people, english spoken

Cons: average products

Perfect spot - Edit

The perfect spot to watch the Alameda and have good food. Altough they also serve meat, they understand the concept of vegetarianism.

Cute place, but misleading - Edit

Wide choice for vegan and veggie dishes, tapas and plate.
Interesting food combination
It wasn't really clear which dishes were veggie and which weren't. We ordered a dish which contained a shrimp, the waiter told us it was vegetarian... Not cool..
The salad, which was vegan, contained CHEESE. So, beware of what you order and make sure the waiter understands what you ask.

Pros: Veggie and Vegan, Wide choise

Cons: Veggie dish had shrimp, Vegan dish contained cheese, Menu not clear

Mongus 28 Nov 2015 - That's Spain, always be alert. Its getting much better but you still encounter waiters who see ham (jamon) as somthing diffrent as meat and tuna (atun) not as fish. also with chicken and seafood. We learend to be very specific about the order.

great - Edit

I had seitan skewers and they were so delicious! Most dishes are available in a small tapas size too so it's worth getting several to share and try.

Un bon moment - Edit

L'accueil et le professionnalisme du personnel est très appréciable ! Le gérant parle plusieurs langues et il est très sympathique ! La couleur des assiettes et leurs saveurs sont au rendez-vous. On y retrouve des recettes andalouses et marocaines. Nous avons pu déguster un excellent couscous, des croquetas, du taboulé, des olives, des falafels, du veggieburger..! Tout était très bon !
Les prix sont très raisonnables !
Et le meilleur: la terrasse.
Par contre, il vous faudra certainement faire la queue..

Allez-y les yeux fermés!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, terrasse

Cons: busy

Excellent restaurant highly recommended - Edit

Good restaurant, usually busy, very tasty dishes, good prices. Is located in the beautiful and cool area. One problem: we ordered dishes waiter who did not understand English and even though we explained many times she brought us a dish with shrimp. it is important to ask to speak to an English speaking waiter.

Decent - Edit

The good: waiter spoke English well, nice outside patio area, menu in English, vegan items marked on menu, various sizes to choose from for each tapa/entree, open all day.

The not so good: food was ok but nothing special, dressing on salad tapas was ok but a bit too much vinegar, only vegan dessert was a coconut rice pudding which was decent.

Great for mixed groups - Edit

We visited Arte y Sabor with family who are definitely not vegetarian - so one of the real pluses was the mixed menu, which is suited to most tastes. There were some definitely highlights, such as the Seitan dishes - but we did feel the fully Vegetarian (or Vegan) selection was a little limited (admittedly given the demand, this is understandable).

Nonetheless we had a lovely lunch and they were very good with our 2 year old - one of only two places in Seville we've found who have high chairs!

Pros: Good Food, Highchairs!, Good service

A pleasant dinner - Edit

I had dinner yesterday at the Arte y Sabor with two non-vegetarian friends of mine. The restaurant is in the Alameda de Hercules, one of the most lively places of the city, very nice (incidentally, it's where the Alameda Rock is, a fully vegetarian place, but we had eaten there the day before therefore this time we went for the Arte y Sabor).
The restaurant advertises itself as "Vegetarian and Vegan friendly", and in the menu there are small leaf icons to indicate dishes that can be made either vegetarian or vegan. Make sure to ask about those! Most dishes are by default with meat/fish, but there are vegetarian and vegan options available. The stuff is very friendly and they speak Spanish, English, and French (and maybe some other language that I didn't hear yesterday - indeed the place was full and about half the customers were non-Spanish).
We had a huge salad, tasty felafel, and a salmorejo de remolacha (a sort of cold soup with beetrot, garlic...) that we shared, and in the end we also got some arab/turkish sweets (good, but nothing compared to what you can actually get in places like Istanbul). 2 beers each, and we paid 12 euros each.

Pros: Helpful stuff, Many veg options (make sure to ask!), Good food

Cons: Serve meat and fish, Slightly above-average prices in Sevilla
