Description: Bodega Mezquita. Tavern- traditional restaurant located in the Jewish quarter, close to MEzquita Catedral of Cordoba. An exceptional place where you can taste the best plates and tapas of cordovan gastronomy. Family business which we initiated our path in the 60s, is one of the favourite establishments as people from Cordoba as visitor from our city, when they want enjoy of authentic cordovan tapeo and best wines from our land. Cuisine which is made with traditional method, is essence of Andalucian gastronomic culture, with the best products from the rich cordovan land: Iberian ham, sheep cheese and meat from Valle de Los Pedroches, olive oil virgin extra, fortified wine from Montilla Moriles... As could not be otherwise, our specialities are: the famous Salmorejo Cordobes, Berenjenas a la miel, Flamenquin and Rabo de Toro. Our quality is recognised for numerous prize and honours like SICTED among others and the best guides to national and international travels too.

My husband and I stumbled on this bodega at midnight after leaving the Hammam on the same street. In Spanish fashion, I decided to have a glass of wine and a tapas. The chicken tajin was so delicious that we ordered several more items. This is not a fancy spot, but casual, with Cordoban flamenco groups performing on the TV. The space was clean and modern, service was quick, which was perfect as we just wanted a quick bite. We were able to compare the tapas to other restaurants bc we ordered some of the same things we had had elsewhere. Our feeling was that, bc we are not particularly fond of traditional Spanish cuisine, we found the arabic influenced dishes here very well seasoned and clean. When I asked for a glass of wine that resembled an Albarino, I got something that tasted similar. At other restaurants, i was not successful at getting the kind of wine I prefer. The prices were very reasonable.

For a place that specialised in wine, the wines were a bit disappointing. The food was good and our waitress offered the best service we've had so far on this holiday. We had the menu which was good value for money and all the choices were tasty. The free glass of PX at the end was a nice touch.

I was here for lunch with my family, we ordered 4 dishes and they were all good-excellent. The only mistake we made was having 3/4 dishes be off of the fried section of the menu, so it was a little redundant. Other than that the service was good, the food was good-excellent, and the atmosphere was very nice. A pleasant surprise considering it's right in the heart of the tourist area.

Really good busy place next to the mezquita. At the moment the number 6 in town but for sure one of the best. Make sure you try the recommendations. You won't be disappointed.

During our visit the place was hopping. The food and service were very good. Prices are pretty moderate given it's in the tourist zone.

If you go to Bodegas Mezquita ask for a table away from the bar as there tends to be a crowd of oblivious tourists crowding the tables.
