We had dinner here (we stumbled across the restaurant while wandering the old quarter) on a recent trip to Cordoba. It is a small restaurant with a few tables and a small bar area. The food was wonderful. The chef did very inventive takes on traditional Spanish tapas.

The waiter paced the dinner perfectly. The wines were very good and fairly priced. We can highly recommend this restaurant for a delicious and inventive dinner in a nice setting (and at a good price).

The food is GREAT. Great taste combinations, salmorejos and 4 course menu incl 3 nice wines. You simply think the price is a mistake for such a wonderful combination. This is art, and very friendly one on top

We had two restaurants on our list to visit and found them next door to one another. We chose Umami for our first meal.

We had been traveling all day and met up with friends who had been traveling as well. We were early for dinner but wanted something light before exploring.

The wait staff was wonderful. Two young women who truly understand guest service. They offered suggestions and when we chose wrong they politely steered us away and on to another dish. What started out to be a snack turned into a full meal. We ordered several dishes and shared them all. Each dish was different, no two were even close in flavor to the other. We live in another area of Andalusia Spain where the food is mostly fried or plancha, (grilled in olive oil and salt), so these flavors and preparations were well received. Prices were very reasonable.

This is a definite return to restaurant and I highly recommend it.

We loved the special tipical "Salmorejos" dish, we had perfect cava sangeria, loved several main courses. The only thing that wasn't good enough was the desert. מומלץ, רומנטי, מיוחד וטעים

This place specailizes in Salmorejo, typical Cordoban cold soup made with bread, delicious for dipping. It is our new favorite food. They had very unusual varieties of this soup as well such as one that had squid ink. It is a cute place with friendly service.
