You can find Bar Santos by looking for the people munching on tortillas from plastic plates on the walls of Mezquita. Entering it you can see the big tortillas lined up for the hungry customers. Tortilla piece is 2 Euro and a meat dish is generally 4 Euros, so good prices and quality of the food is quite good. The... More

We've read about this bar on one of the blongs about Andalusia, we were not dissapointed. The sizes of tortillas are beyond compare, it was very good. There is almost no place in the bar so people take pieces of tortilla outside and eat them on the stairs of the cathedral, it does have it's charm. You go by and... More

This is a great little basic bar right outside the Mezquita. The walls are covered in photos and memorabilia of Bullfighting and Flamenco and there ids just enough room for one table and two chairs. They are renowned for their famousTortilla which is massive and served by the slice and is award winning. Have yourself a glass or two of... More

We stayed in Cordoba two days and the first night headed directly to Bar Santos to try out tortilla de patatas. One portion is 2€: I ate one and a beer, then, since I liked it, I ate the second and get the fill. The place is very tiny and crowded but you can seat down in the street at... More

The tortilla is very very delicious and they serve san miguel beer (which is much better of the... More

This place conforms to what it is....tortilla heaven. It doesn't want nor need to be happy, welcoming and entertaining. It does tortilla and it does it very well. If you are looking to patient service then this is not the place. The amount of local people here was a great guide and cheap beer plus tortilla is my idea of... More

A tiny Tapas bar right outside the Mezquita serves legendary tortillas (spanish omelette). They are gigantic but you pay by the slice. Newspaper articles cover the walls about the first-class recipe kept secret by the owner. Shame the place didn't extend to first-class service. We had an exceptionally rude waiter who didn't give me what I ordered, claiming out loud... More

The first tip this small, unassuming bar is worth a visit is the hordes of locals calling in; the place was buzzing every time we walked past. Most people are there for one thing: the tortillas. It's not hard to see why; light, fluffy and utterly moreish! Wash it down with a pleasingly cheap (for the location) San Miguel.

It was on the list of things to do!!! It was very busy during the day so we decided to go in the evening. The staff were rude and ignorant, not at all helpful - seemed like they couldn't be bothered, esp with Engish customers!! We got the food almost thrown at us, there was no goodbye and to top... More
