A nip and tuck or two in the interiors and an overhaul of the menu a few months ago, and Sevilla is as good as new.
This open air restaurant has a trick up its sleeve. Some of the tables are out in the open, under tall trees; others are in air-conditioned cabins, two or three tables per cabin. The bar is a separate glassed-in entity and the open kitchen is the focus of the entire restaurant. So, whatever your preference, you are sure to find a table that is perfect for you. In good weather, it is necessary to book a table in advance. There is a sparkle in Sevilla no matter when you visit, making it a great place to bring special guests, particularly from overseas. It is probably the interplay of the informality of the outdoors with the more sedate cabin seating: neither too formal, nor too informal.
The stand-out dishes are absolutely spectacular. The fresh burrata cheese with selection of heirloom, beefsteak, yellow cherry and green tomatoes with basil caviar (Rs 695) is enough for three normal appetites, but because of the size of the mould of the burrata cheese, it is served to a single person. Beware: unless you have the appetite of a giant, you won’t be able to eat anything after that. The degustation of wild mushrooms (Rs 1295) is composed of all the most flavourful mushrooms: Portobello, ceps, morels, porcini, chanterelles and truffles with grilled herbed polenta is the other must-have that contains no meat yet is a treat for everyone
Duo of foie gras (Rs 1295) consists of terrine of foie gras with fig jam as well as pan-seared foie gras with roasted plum and red wine gastrique. Best of all is the wagyu (Rs 3495) that has three pieces of charcoal grilled wagyu with sage gnocchi. Unmissable.
Plus and Minus
For a fairly formal dining space, the service is far too in-your-face. It has to be toned down much more to heighten the sense of isolation that the management has gone to such pains to convey. Not all the tapas is finger food; there are some dishes in the tapas section that are quite difficult to share. On the plus side, vegetarians will be spoilt for choice.
Paella (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian), pan con tomate (anchovies on bread) and pato (smoked duck breast)

One of the most underrated venues in the city, Sevilla has recently refreshed its wonderfully landscaped setting and added new influences from Spain, Italy and Morocco to its menu. The romantic interiors and pebbled walkway lead to a trove of unexpected cocktails like the deliciously piquant Special Salt Martini and carefully selected wines from the old and new world. Champagnes like Tattinger and Bollinger Brut Spécial Cuvée are perfect to pop open for celebrations. Their tapas selection of Patatas Bravas, Croquettes De Ajillo, Gambas Del Chorizo and Albondigas are a refreshing respite from the usual suspects and elevate the experience especially when paired with some Sangria. Take a special date there or out-of-towners you want to impress, but remember to maintain the tranquility of the space because this one is not meant for rambunctious nights.

I'm learning Spanish so I thought it would be wonderful to try a Spanish restaurant and I really wanted to try a good one and one of my friends vouched for this restaurant so I had to give it a shot.
Claridges is one of the nicest hotels in Delhi and I love Pickwicks for my late night dessert craving so I did not think twice before trying Sevilla. I love Alfresco dining and gazebos are my favourite so when I was at Sevilla, I could just sense I was going to have a good evening.
It is the perfect place for a romantic date with dim lights, the star studded sky and the beautifully manicured garden. This restaurant however also does Italian and Moroccan food. I love the Spanish food the best but you can also give the Italian and Moroccan cuisine a try because both the chefs are really talented.
I love their selection of wines, it is exquisite. Dom Perignon is one of the nicest champagnes you can ever have and I loved it at Sevilla. The cocktails, the drinks, everything on the menu drinks wise was brilliant, I can't fault a thing.
Coming to the food I would highly recommend their Paella which is a Valencian rice dish to die for and the Cheese Croquettes, likewise - fabulous!
If you are at Sevilla, make sure you take your loved one because romance is in the air at Sevilla with the lovely picturesque setting and remarkable hospitality.

I think they have done a great job with the overall setting and ambiance of Sevilla, it definitely is a great date place. The private chiffon draped seating near the waterfall is the best table in the house however I was expecting more authentic Spanish fare. The tapas and the paella were average, The salmon pizza was pretty good. Would also recommend the sangria.
