A local tavern offering good food and wine in a fun and busy atmosphere. A menu with good choice and a specials board which is based on fresh market food of the day gives you a good range of dishes to choose from. The wine range is extensive.

It was the first restaurant we went to in Cordoba, Jose took really good care of us. We enjoyed the meal and atmosphere sitting outside.

It's rather difficult to have a bad meal in Spain. We have had some of the best meals of our life in sevilla. That being said we were rather dissapointed with Taberna la montillana. Banal with no attention to detail. Although service was friendly and accomodating, our meal was less than average.

We happened upon this nice little place near our lodging soon after we arrived and were very hungry. Manuel was at the bar, and even though they weren't quite ready to serve dinner yet, he was very friendly and helpful, and served us really good gin and tonics (with great flourish). This place has wonderful food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff.... More

I loved my dinner here. I really feel like this place has something to offer just about everyone: big modern & attractive dining room plus outside tables, big menu with tapas classics as well as salads and lots more, friendly & attentive service with reasonable prices...what more you could you ask for? You'd be hard pressed to find a restaurant... More

we sat within the small plaza outside the front of this restaurant for a very nice midday meal, which was not only tasty but also well presented. This was one of the many recommended places to eat which our hotel informed us about in advance and this restaurant certainly lived up to its name. We had a wonderful mixed salad... More

This is a lovely spot at night, especially if you can get a table outside. The seats are outside a church and it's a lively spot with the locals and away from the very touristy areas. Staff are friendly and the food tapas are very good too. A good option.

I strongly recommend this place, very clean and friendly with outdoor and indoor seating. It has the nicest tapas I've had in Córdoba. I would recommend the croquettes. The staff were very friendly and it was popular with both locals and tourists.

Excellent restaurant next to tapas bar which is clearly a student favorite! Enjoyed good food, an excellent helpful waiter and amazing people watching. Recommend for anyone looking for good local fare (but not not seeking pretension)

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. Large windows allow perfect views of the San Miguel Church with the large rosette in the facade.La Montillana’s decoration reflects the bullfight tradition. Among other items, the life-sized painting „Picador“, created by local artisan Fernando García Herrera, is impressive. Also worth mentioning are the works of painter López Canito, including paintings depicting the so-called five caliphs of bullfight – Lagartijo, Machaquito, El Guerra, Manolete und El Cordobés.This tavern also has an extensive wine list. Guests can choose from more than 50 wines.
