We met up for drinks on the terrace. We ordered our complimentary bottle of Cava and we had a laugh up on the terrace as the sun slowly went down.

Key discussion was focused around whether you are in a queue if you are at the front of that queue? This was a quote from Sam. Will need to look that one up!

We headed out of the hotel at just before 7:30pm. The San Marco restaurant was just around the corner and we were amazed when we walked in and we met the same waiter that served us at breakfast this morning!

They talked about the restaurant being the sister of the hotel. I guess that means it’s actually owned by the same company and employees work across the two businesses.

We chose a table on the mezzanine level. We were the first customers in, but it filled up quickly after us.

A guitarist turned up later on and sat on the stairs half way up. Always good to listen to some live music at a restaurant.

It had a lovely feel about the place. The waiting team were really friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English.

It was a great end to the holiday and a fitting culmination in Vick’s birthday bash.

We ordered two bottles of wine: a bottle of white for the Keevils and a bottle of rose for the Billinghams. Both were ok, but nothing to write home about.

Starters comprised a plate of broken up parmesan (for me) and a burrata salad (for Vick). I ended up mixing mine with Andrew’s plate of veggies. Nice combinaton.

For main course, I had a ravioli dish which was lovely. Vick had a gluten-free spag dish which was nice, but there wasn’t enough sauce with it.

For pudding, I had a heavenly cheesecake and Vick had a fruit tart with a raspberry coulis.

It was a very good meal and very reasonably priced.

Once we had paid up, we walked around the town for 30 mins, before heading back to the hotel.

Seville was full of people wandering around. It is a safe and comfortable place to be.

The fact that it is warm in the evening, even in March, encourages people to come out and about.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any suggestions?
