This 'taberna' was advised by a Spanish man to who asked our way. Al though the fact they don't speak any else then Spanish or a 'little' french, they are very kind and to their best to explain. The restaurant himself is small and simple. It's real traditional food and very nice.

Only having one night in Cordoba, we wanted to find somewhere nice for dinner that wasn't too touristy. Taberna la Montillana fit the bill. Jose, our waiter, seemed to appreciate our faltering Spanish and helped us find drinks and food that we wanted, and everything was very tasty. We enjoyed the traditional salmorejo and mazamorra to start, as well as... More

Excellent food. One of the nice things here was when we were ordering too much the waiter told us (and he was right), very helpful and nice atmosphere.

Just two blocks from a lively town square with late night buzz. However, fortunately located on a side street from the noisy crowds - offering a nice variety of tasty choices. At the end of our dinner, we were surprised with a complimentary desert wine.

Was recommended by our hotel, and was even better than expected. Be hungry when you go as the food is awesome and plenty of it. Staff were fantastic, and even gave us a local sherry to try, then to finish off an dessert wine which was delicious all on the house. We were shocked at how reasonable the cost was,... More

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.
