Restaurantes (Traditional Spanish cuisine):

Victoria 8 (C. Victoria, 8, 41010 Sevilla, Spain)

  • $: A bit pricey for Spain, but standard for US
  • Location: Triana
  • Recommended options: larger plates – arroces (paella, arroz negro), alioli, pan y picos, pescado frito
    • The owner is celiac, so everything can be prepared for celiacs upon request.
    • They actually do not offer an allergen menu since the restaurant can prepare each dish freshly according to your needs. Make sure to tell them your restrictions and enjoy the fact that you don’t have to scan the menu for the symbols and can order whatever you desire!

Otras recomendaciones:

Doña Acetiuna

  • Location: It’s a local shop with several locations (Los Remedios y Triana)
  • Recommended options: aceitunas – they’re an olive shop so try all of their olives! (Minus the ones with cheese if you’re dairy free.)


  • $: Cheap
  • Location: It’s a Spanish grocery store with several locations in Sevilla
  • Recommended options: They have many allergy friendly options that are reasonably priced and they clearly mark their items sin gluten and sin lactosa. Remember to keep an eye out for sin lactosa (since it may be lactose-free but not dairy-free, although most Mercadona items that are marked are dairy-free. Warning: don’t get the pizza though if you are allergic to dairy.)
