We stumbled upon this nice restaurant, the only one open, in the early afternoon hours of a fine August day in Cordoba. Right across the river, with an impressive view over the Old town of Cordoba, this restaurant had the most friendliest waiter I ever met. We took his suggestions (Tony) for food and were happily pleased with the output!... More

We visited this Restaraunt on 9 may 2016. It was close to our hotel & rated highly by Trip Advisor. What a disappointment, 3 of our party had suckling pig, all of us left nearly all of it as it was hard, cooked at least twice & in edible. My wife had oven cooked Dorada, which was supposed to come... More

We had coffee here whilst waiting for our guide. It was difficult to get a seat at 10.30am. and there were already queues to get served, which took quite a time. Maybe more staff needed at busier times.

Tauck tour dinner in Córdoba for 39 was in El Mirador. We were warned that the portions were big. Actually, enormous. Our table of 6 green shared green salad, Manchego cheese, Russian potato salad, and grilled eggplant, all very good. Then shrimp, calamari and slow cooked bull's tail. Much more than the six of us could eat. Although the food... More

Just a walk away from old town cordoba, a ross the river, we found this quaint tapas bar. Very busy yes, but not too busy for the waiter to give advice on the menu. Good choice of food.. good location. .great evening

This restaurant provides a good variety of tapas dishes, including some typical Spanish dishes. Service was good and quick. My only criticism lies in the fact that the white wine was served at room temperature, rather than being even slightly chilled.

Quality , variety, service, hospitality, welcome, value for money all deserve a five star rating. Many many thanks to our friend Rafael and his colleagues for making our visits so special. We are grateful to the policeman ( chungito) who kindly recommended this special restaurant to us.

We were staying at the Hisperia just up the road - and needed some calm after a battle with the old Cordoba one-way streets. El Mirador does not exactly turn your head from the outside, but once inside we enjoyed a very tasteful meal, nicely presented and good value for money. Definitely recommend.

Tapas plates are big, we dinned there as a group of 26. We selected different plates. Our favorites top to bottom: fried cauliflower, octopus in the Galician style, shrimp in garlic and olive oil, and potato omelette Least favorite: roasted red pepper, fried fish platter, anchovies and spicy sausage Dishes to avoid: Iberian pork loin in sauce (extremely salty) Wine:...

we had the chance to try the dish of the day, which was a delicious paella input, followed by a grilled fish. In my opinion the quality of the food (we were a group of 12 people) was very good, also at that time they had great demand from other customers.
