“Great tapas, good ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Ok so you are eating on the street, but excellent tapas (fried cod, patas moriscos - topped with curried mayonnaise - and berenjeras (aubergines) fried and then drizzled with cane sugar honey were a delight. So were the sangrias and cool dry white wine we knocked them back with. Nice location, overlooked by blue flower pots and white buildings give a real feeling of being in your 'quartier'. Early October, but helped by the balmy night air, we had sound tapas, good value and excellent service. Best, unpretentious, meal in 2 days in Codoba! NB has the 'Qualidad Touristica' sign - would be interested to know if all the places bearing this insignia are as good.

“Reasonable lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stopped here for lunch when we'd got a bit hot and worn out after a morning's sightseeing and felt we should give another tapas place a go. It has a pleasant location by the city walls though when you're sitting outside at street level you're very close indeed to people passing by on the busy side street. Service was good, food was reasonable - my husband had some deep fried cod and croquettes which were nice, my aubergines in a honey sauce were ok but not my thing really as they were so sweet and greasy. Quite ok overall.

I stopped here on a whim for lunch and ordered 3 tapas dishes. They were solid and I had no complaints. Service was good.

“Great food, typical Spanish service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This restaurant is set in a beautiful location on a picturesque street with white painted walls and flowers. This is all under the backdrop of the ancient city wall that is several thousand years old. The Tapas were excellent. My favorite being the grilled squid. The service was a little slow, but not completely inattentive.

“Unbeliveable Tapas experience on the roof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Restaurant has beautiful rooftop terrace, providing their guests with romantic atmosphere and beautiful view.
Be sure to ask for tapas card if you want to have tapas because they are not listed in the menu.
They have wide range of tipical tapas, but be sure to try salmorejo which is typical Cordoban trait.
