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

Our waiter Angel recommended some lovely wine to go with our food. The Ox Tail was delicious! And the salmon salad was so fresh (hard to find light food... More

I stopped at the bar for lunch and ordered the boquerones and a small portion of croquetas. The boquerones were quite good and a large portion. Service was okay -- best if you speak Spanish.

excellent meal and fantastic attentive waiter Jose, who on many attempts thankfully tried to stop us over-ordering, but the food was too good and we did so none the less. The complimentary glass of Ximenez finished us off. Wonderful meal, would easily say it has been the best meal we've had in Spain so far. Patatas bravas were nice and... More

Great food! One of the best meals my wife and I had while in Spain. My favorite patatas bravas to date! Everything was perfectly cooked. The risotto I had was flavorful and I could honestly eat it at least once a day. Curro was friendly and welcomed us.

Thank Rene J. P

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.
