THE FINEST TERRACE IN SEVILLE HAS VIEWS OF THE PLAZA DE ESPAÑA
Sevilla is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, full of history and art forged in a cauldron of multiple cultures and peoples mixing together over the centuries. Located in the most southern region of Spain, Andalucía, Sevilla in summer gets very, very hot.
So after a day of cultural visits and maybe a bit of shopping there is nothing like a drink by the pool. Until now, the offer in Sevilla center was very limited but the Meliá Sevilla has put an end to this limitation by opening a new terraza, the Quimera food&pool by their recently revamped pool. The snack menu is quite attractive and the cocktails are gorgeous. My favourite is the Mixed Fruits Mojito. As the sun goes down, Quimera turns into a restaurant, becoming the ideal place to admire the incredible views of the emblematic Plaza de España and the entrance to the María Luisa park, a symbol of the city built between 1914 and 1929 by the architect Aníbal González on the occasion of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929.
Quimera’s menu features locally sourced ingredients and is based on meat and fish grilled to perfection in a Josper charcoal oven, with exclusive views. Quimera enjoys direct street access, using the elevator by the hotel’s main entrance. The ambience created by the soft lighting gives this unique setting a special atmosphere, combined with what is undoubtedly one of the finest and prettiest views of the city of Seville. Must-try dishes include the Córdoba salmorejo emulsion with olive oil sponge, cured tuna and baby broad beans, and the charcoal-grilled octopus.
