Followed recommendations on guidebook and trip advisor reviews but it was quite disappointing. Small place but filled with uncleared plates, glasses and used tissues on the floor. Opens at 11:30am rather than 10am. Tortilla was €2 for quite a large slice with two pieces of 'bread crackers'. Good value but not quite 'the best in Spain', go only if you'll... More

Stopped in for a drink. Wanted a snack, so asked for a slice of tortilla. Their tortillas are very tall, and one slice was a good snack for two. Best tortilla I've had so far in Spain. Other tapas looked good, but we weren't there for a meal. Two drinks and the tortilla were 6€

Read about this place in Lonely Planet - tiny bar but famous for its large Tortilla - enjoyed a quick bite here right next to the Mesquita. Worth a quick drop in

Amazing Tortilla, Amazing Tortilla, Amazing Tortilla! Other tapas is available but the Tortilla is huge and tasty, great little place to watch the world go by and have a beer.

The above two orders will set you back 5 EUR total. Not a well-rounded or totally filling meal, but worth it to feel like a local Cordoban, tasting something uniquely Cordoban as well. I was recommended this by a Cordoban working and living in Barcelona, so you can say this line as well. :-)

I suppose this place is famous for its tortilla, which is the biggest I have ever seen. By the way here you can have very cheap food with fast service. Such a big sandwich with tortilla or other typical stuff.

In my opinion the poster who complained about the tortilla not being all that good is missing the point of Bar Santos. You don't go there expecting to get a really good meal. I mean, for goodness' sake, you can't book a table; there aren't any. Service consists of one barman manning the beer tap, another on the till, and... More

very cheap prices, good food, large portions. Opened up to 23 h15 at night. Superb location: you can eat inside (2 seats only!!) or better : outside, on the other side of the narrow street along the mosquita. In addition very warm atmosphere.

I have been over following thousand of recommendation of my colleagues. Everyone were really focus by saying you need to go try the tortilla if you go to Cordoba. I might be observing about it. But I don't get why it is so fabulous or having so many positive comments. True it is a stunning tortilla by the size but... More

This is a tiny hole-in-the-wall bar next to Mezquita. It was crowded with only 4 customer at the bar! I ordered a slice of their famous tortilla and a cup of salmorejo (cold tomato cream typical of Córdoba) to go and ate them in the courtyard garden of Mezquita. They provided plastic utensils, napkins, and bread sticks. The tortilla was... More
