The bar area is very central, and a proper bar. The tortillas look like something out of the film "Good Burger", but they actually tasted pretty good. A nice handy place for a short break.

Overhyped place, just ordinary snacks.. Crowded spot though. I wouldn't recommend it as a must-go place.

The place is an icon, over 50 years. Nice delicious and fresh tortilla slice where a the end of the day the food that doesn't sell is donated to the monks and the next day you can count on fresh tortilla. Remember this is not a place with chairs, just a standing bar to have a beer a slice of... More

A must when you visit Córdoba. Ice cold beer and their famous tortilla sitting outside right by the mezquita. Great quick service and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

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.
