When you’re studying at university, it’s important to take care of yourself both physically and mentally. At Nido El Porvenir, we take the wellbeing of students very seriously which is why Just Good makes it on our list of the best places to eat in Seville for students.

When you move to a new country or city to study, one of the best parts is being able to learn about a new culture and immerse yourself into their way of living. In Seville, there’s no better place to do so than Taberna Picalatagarto. If you want to experience life in Spain to the fullest and taste deliciously authentic Spanish cuisine, this tapas restaurant is a must-visit!
Taberna Picalagarto is a small, cosy restaurant with a real family feel to it,
and a very relaxing atmosphere. This makes it the perfect place to get to know your new university friends and enjoy local culture. Another reason we think it’s one of the best restaurants in Seville for students is because you can play a selection of board games while you share tapas dishes.
So, what delicious food can you expect to enjoy at Taberna Picalagarto? Renowned for its many traditional tapas dishes, here are just a few ideas to get your mouth watering:
- Garlic Prawns
- Seared Tuna

The best part? It’s only a 3 minute walk from Seville Cathedral so you can spend the day taking in the history and culture of this amazing city before tucking into tasty and cheap tapas with friends.
Confitería La Campana
So far, we’ve covered brunch, nutritious meals and traditional tapas which means there’s only one thing we’re missing: something for the students with a sweet tooth!
Whether you’re celebrating the submission of your assignment, treating yourself after a long day of lectures or simply fancy a sweet treat to enjoy with your coffee, Confitería La Campana is one of the best places to eat in Seville for students.
Confitería La Campana is actually one of the oldest patisseries in Seville, so you can enjoy a slice of history as well as cake! Having been open since 1885, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands when it comes to ordering the tastiest pastries in Spain!
We couldn’t possibly choose our favourite sumptuous snack from Confitería La Campana as they’re all so delicious, but here are a few examples of what you can expect to see in their patisserie window:
- Lenguas de almendra
- French Toast
- Tarta san marcos
Just an 11 minute walk from Seville Cathedral, it’s the perfect lunchtime stop off point after an exciting morning of exploring!
Did you know…Seville is home to some of the world’s most incredible street markets which offer delicious Spanish delicacies and goods? With markets all over the city, you’re never far away from authentic, fresh, cheap produce that will make cooking like a pro easy!
Street markets provide the ultimate on-the-go food experience, so you can grab a fresh lunch on the way to or from lectures. Plus, if you’re on a tight budget, getting ingredients from a street market rather than a supermarket is a great idea because you’ll usually find them much cheaper.
Traditional street markets also offer you a way to immerse yourself deeply into Spanish culture, giving you the ultimate student experience in Seville. While there are many street markets around Seville, some of the most popular include:
- Mercado de Triana
- Mercado de Feria
- Mercado del Arenal
Why not have a shared cooking night with your flatmates? You can make a list of ingredients, head out to the market, grab fresh and delicious produce, pop your favourite playlist on and cook up a storm together. Sounds like a perfect evening to us!
