The upstairs dining rooms of this elegant town house near the Plaza de Toros have earned a reputation as one of the finest upscale restaurants in Sevilla. But it’s frankly more fun to eat off the bistro menu in the downstairs tile-encrusted dining room that adjoins the central atrium cafe. The dishes are less precious, and everything is prepared and served by the faculty and students of the hotel and hospitality school, started here many years ago by a priest looking for a way to give street kids some marketable skills. The dishes are rib-stickers: the hearty potato and sausage stew known as Riojanas, cod a pil pil served with ratatouille topped with a poached egg, duck in Sevilla orange sauce, and rice pudding with a side of profiteroles. The restored mansion also serves as an inn, with seven spacious and elegant guest rooms.
