It´s not near the Mezquita, it hasn´t got a patio with flowerpots, you won´t hear a guitar, and the photos of toreros on the walls are there because the clients are truly aficionados. That´s how true this place is and so is the food. Excellent andalusian cookery with the kindest waiter in Spain - Manolo. Don´t miss it. Worth the... More

For me, this is the best taberna in the city, the place where you can try Cordoba's traditional food in its purest form. It's only serious rival for range and quality is the Mesón Juan Peña. It's not easy to decide which of the two is better, but in the end I think I would have to come down in... More

A very good restaurant for authentic high quality Spanish food in Córdoba. Well known among locals and recommended by them too. What makes the food so surprisingly good is its simplicity. The ingredients are of very good quality, you can immediately taste that. The dish me and my family recommend especially is "pez araña" fried or grilled. Both really great!... More

We loved this place: unpretentious local surroundings and great food. It's a little walk from the centre, but worth it for a less touristy experience. Extremely friendly and efficient service. We had a wonderful steak, excellent tapas, very good wine. Recommended!

Tried the grilled tuna and it was excellent. Also the olives they give everybody was perfect. The staff here are friendly, but they don't speak english as in most places in cordoba.

This is a great find. Get out of the tourist zone and walk 15 minutes from Mezquita to this little gem. No English spoken but that was fine I don't speak Spanish. We figured it out. Swordfish and beef tenderloin were el perfecto! Great selection of wines. This was well worth the effort and the walk. Great food.

The restaurant offers extremely friendly service. English is a challenge, but we managed to get by with the few words of spanish we know and the few words of english the waiter knows. It is inane area that is a bit of the tourist path. It does not look that impressive from the outside, but we had good food and... More
