You can enjoy the trappings of history when you eat at this formal and classic restaurant in Barrio de Santa Cruz. Originally a Jewish residence, it was converted to a convent in 1362 and served as Sevilla’s first post office in the 19th century. The dining rooms are elegant spaces with high-coffered ceilings and moody historic paintings on the walls. The food, we’re happy to report, is brighter, more boisterous, and full of flavor. The combination of sweet and savory is typical of Sevillano Mozarabic cooking. Look for it in the venison stew, or the pheasant braised with apples. One of the restaurant’s signature seafood dishes is the casserole of squid, grapes, and small fish.
