Located beside the Mezquita is Bar Santos. It is not really a bar in a conventional sense it's a small take-away that also sells beer and other drinks. What makes it special is they serve tortilla's - that's it!! But what Tortilla's , they are massive and served in a big slab. Opposite Bar Santos... read more

No trip to Cordoba is complete without a visit to Bar Santos. You cannot miss it, just follow the crowds of locals, always a good sign! This is truly amazing value for utterly exquisite tortilla de patatas, 2 euros for a thick slice, easily enough for lunch, with a beer, or a Fino sherry if you are a local. Extremely... More

This place is so tiny. Only ground level open. It was too crowded most days to access, except about 4pm 23rd April, when NO ONE inside, so we had the potato quiche and a few beers- all rather low prices for Cordoba, the potato quiche did taste more 'eggy' than other places - deeper flavour. and you do sit and...

Amazing tortilla, it is worth a visit, right next to the Great Cathedral and Mosque! Grab a slice and sit on the Mesquita steps to enjoy it. One will be enough just as snack to walk around the historic centre. Highly recommended!

Was told by a co-worker to not leave Cordoba without visiting Bar Santos and trying their tortilla de patatas and a beer. The tortilla I got was just coming out and still hot. It was the most delicious one I have had in my 2 years in Spain! Price for a slice with a beer was something ridiculous, like 2€... More

The tortilla here was huge and came with 2 far bread sticks. Although I'm one of those who prefer the egg undercooked, I really enjoyed the tortilla here. The waiter wasn't very friendly but did the job. I was there around 17:00 and there was only another person in there.

Apparently famous for its massive tortillas (see picture! Apart from that, it's a tiny, typically spanish, bar. No outside space apart from the street and the mezquita steps over the road. Opened in 1966 (I think) and never updated. Worth visiting for that aspect alone with all the old pictures and newspaper cuttings around the walls

Tiny bar, famous for its tortilla. Order drinks and tapas at bar and sit outside on steps of Mezquita. Always crowded (as are steps), but barman always copes, and the mixed crowd on the steps are always good-humoured; have never, in many many visits, seen any problems!

we stopped quickly at the taberna santos for a beer, after some time exploring the Mezquita. The place is very small, in fact only has a bar counter. A lot of people were standing outside. We bought 2 small beers for only EUR3! On such a hot day, it was nice to stop for a cold beer.

My guide book said this was the place to eat near the Mezquita. So I went and there were only Spaniards in line so that made me feel good about my choice. The line was chaotic at best and the management needed to control it a bit more. The people behind me tried to cut in front of me but... More
