Hi Chowhounds,

Later this month my wife and I are heading off to Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Although we do like "high end" food, what we're looking for in this case are good low/moderate places reflective of the local cuisine/ambience.

In Madrid we're looking for three places that serve a good variety of tapas. I don't think we want to eat standing around a bar, but rather at a table and with a menu of available tapas. Suggestions?

In Lisbon we want to go downtown (Barrio Alto?) for a fado restaurant where we can eat fairly good local food and listen to some fado singing as well, but not too late into the evening. (We'd prefer to start eating/listening no later than 9 pm or so.) For our other night we'd like if possible, to stay close to our hotel which is a couple of miles north of downtown near the Roma metro station. There is supposed to be a theater/restaurant district right nearby. Any suggestions for restaurants near there?

What are the best place in Seville for sampling local Andalusian cuisine? If there are tapas served that would be a plus.

Much Thanks!
