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)

Close to Plaza de las Tendillas, it is located a bit apart from the main touristic places. But you can ask for a table in the terrace (for dinner, maybe for lunch it is too hot during summertime) and you will enjoy a great meal. I strongly recommend iberic ham croquettes. The service was kind and helpful with the dishes... More

We arrived early fortunately as it quickly filled with both tourists and locals. We shared a goat cheese salad with basil drizzle - huge and tasty. My wife followed with ox tail which she said was one of the best she had tasted. I opted for the fried cod (bacalao ) delicious! but I was lucky to finish it -... More

The flavours were amazing. Firstly cold almond soup with tomato coulis and smoked cod shavings. Then pork loin wrapping serrano ham, finished with a tart de la abuela. Glorious biscuit and chocolate layers. I was given a complimentary plum liqueur to go with the dessert, and it added to the flavours. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly.... More

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

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.
