A diamond in the rough (as some may be confused by its exterior) Milonga’s magic all sits behind its front doors. This Argentinian restaurant has three locations throughout the city, two in Santa Justa and Nervión and a third named Milonguita’s in Seville’s city center. This restaurant houses spectacular steaks and burgers that are as tasty, juicy and well cooked as you can possibly imagine. Other highlights include the argentine empanadas and sweetbreads, all of which would be nothing if not followed by the chocolate molten lava cake with mandarin ice cream. Enjoy any of the delicious meats with a bottle of Spanish or Argentinian wine for a romantic and delightful evening.

The unique and exotic Peruvian-Japanese fusion cuisine of Nazca is surprising to some, but absolutely incredible to all who have the pleasure of experiencing its culinary genius. With an eclectic menu of dishes that blend these two culinary traditions, the world class ceviche is always an absolute favorite, especially the tiger milk ceviche, as well as the maki encevichado (salmon maki with ceviche). Enjoy a Pisco sour, the quintessential Peruvian cocktail, and end the night with an outstanding chocolate mousse or sorbet with guanabana. Although Nazca lies just outside of the city center, its food and rustic chic atmosphere ensure that it is well worth the walk.
