Acceptable Tapas

This restaurant provides a good variety of tapas dishes, including some typical Spanish dishes. Service was good and quick. My only criticism lies in the fact that the white wine was served at room temperature, rather than being even slightly chilled.

Tauck tour dinner in Córdoba for 39 was in El Mirador. We were warned that the portions were big. Actually, enormous. Our table of 6 green shared green salad, Manchego cheese, Russian potato salad, and grilled eggplant, all very good. Then shrimp, calamari and slow cooked bull's tail. Much more than the six of us could eat. Although the food... More

Quality , variety, service, hospitality, welcome, value for money all deserve a five star rating. Many many thanks to our friend Rafael and his colleagues for making our visits so special. We are grateful to the policeman ( chungito) who kindly recommended this special restaurant to us.

We were staying at the Hisperia just up the road - and needed some calm after a battle with the old Cordoba one-way streets. El Mirador does not exactly turn your head from the outside, but once inside we enjoyed a very tasteful meal, nicely presented and good value for money. Definitely recommend.

Tapas plates are big, we dinned there as a group of 26. We selected different plates. Our favorites top to bottom: fried cauliflower, octopus in the Galician style, shrimp in garlic and olive oil, and potato omelette Least favorite: roasted red pepper, fried fish platter, anchovies and spicy sausage Dishes to avoid: Iberian pork loin in sauce (extremely salty) Wine:...

we had the chance to try the dish of the day, which was a delicious paella input, followed by a grilled fish. In my opinion the quality of the food (we were a group of 12 people) was very good, also at that time they had great demand from other customers.

Yes, the location near the Roman bridge and the traditional house and attentive wait staff are all wonderful, but it is the food that is exceptional. A group of us enjoyed tapas after tapas in fine Andalusian style--stand-outs included the red roasted peppers with tuna, tiny shrimp in a light broth, and anchovies (don't think of American canned oily anchovies--fresh...
