This restaurant was a little off the beaten track, but well worth the walk! Our family had one of our best meals in Cordoba here. We arrived a little early for lunch but this ended up being fantastic as we were the primary focus and the service was excellent throughout our meal. I would highly recommend trying a little bit...

Overall this restaurant didn't live up to its reputation. It's lovely looking and has a nice ambience. The service was fine. The food was very tasty but quite cold. Some people complained which didn't seem to be appreciated. The desserts weren't that nice. It was the most expensive meal we are in Córdoba and not the nicest. We wouldn't revisit.

We'd been to Seville and this was our last night in Cordoba. Fancied something different from Tapas, even though they'd been excellent. Down a small alley on the edge of the old town, closed during the day I visited but open in the evening. Food local fresh and very well prepared. Place small and rather like a railway arch but...

This excellent traditional restaurant is difficult to find. It is at the end of Calleja del Arco, a block long street with an obfuscated street sign. It intersects with Calle de Thomas Conde (two blocks long) and is a few blocks from the Mezquita. It opens for dinner at 8:00 pm (20:00 Spanish time). The building is very old and... More

Excellent service - shared salad starter and two pork dishes, simple white wine and coffees - right next to our hotel - good value, friendly and service spot on (eg replated our shared starter at table with confidence, regularly but lightly topping up wine glasses so it was a even split)

We enjoyed a nice dinner at La Fragua, seating outside. Good meals: the tuna tataki (really delicious) and the pork. Good wines! Amazing dessert! The mix of 3 cremes brûlées!!

We visited in October not knowing what to expect. The food was quite nice and the service was friendly. The wine list is expansive and offers many Spanish labels. Our server was great and was very helpful. Many in the group considered this the best meal we have had since arriving in August.

Amazing. Went back for more slow roasted iberico piglet leg. Life changing dish! Sidi, our fantastic waiter, was friendly, knowledgeable about the wine, but most impressively was able to tell us about the local little farm that exclusively supplies their acorn fed piggies, but also the precise way the meat had been cooked. Can not recommend enough; enjoy!
