This tavern is situated adjacent to the central San Miguel Square. Serving guests on three floors, the eatery belongs to the touristic consortium “Tabernas de Córdoba”. According to notes of Cordoba annalist Francisco Solana, the tavern has been existing since the beginnings of the 1940s.La Montillana’s menu list features dishes typical for the Cordoba area, including traditional Salmorejo, oxtail, Flamenquín, eggplants, suckling pig and codfish. There are different daily recommendations, depending on the respective season.The first floor harbors a hall with capacity for 50 - 60 guests. The second floor has another hall, which accommodates smaller gatherings. Both halls have a bathroom and a wardrobe.

The hotel concierge recommended Plaza de San Miguel for many good restaurants. We stopped in for dinner here because it looked inviting. There were many locals enjoying the food and we are very glad we chose this restaurant. Dinner was authentic Spanish. We enjoyed a spinach salad with grilled tomatoes, goat cheese and pine nuts; pork with fries; local wine;... More

After staring at the menu for a bit, a waiter kindly saw our frown lines & brought us over a menu in English. He then showed us the specials board & translated the various dishes for us. Service was attentive. Other customers were mainly locals but a few tourists. There was a nice busy atmosphere but it wasn't too noisy... More

On a city walk we stopped here to eat. Very friendly staff and good food. Small but nice atmosphere. We ate redondo ternerea which is slowly cooked veal and jamon crockets. All were delicious.

The bacalao was fresh, flaky and delicately fried. The spinach, goat cheese, roasted tomatoes and pine nuts salad was fantastic. The tomatoes were so sweet, which balanced well with the goat cheese. The entrecôte was perfectly cooked. They had a very good selection of wine. Our server, Currio, was very kind and attentive.

On plaza San Miguel, near Plaza Nueva. Newly renovated with new furniture and paintings. Cozy, attentive wait staff. Imaginatively prepared grouper (fish) and spinach salad. Effective use of spices.
