“Excellent home cooking Cordoba-style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is a lovely restaurant, tucked away in a hidden spot in town. It is family-owned and run (Mother and her 4 children). The food is typical Cordoba style, Salmorejo, Rabo de Toro always perfect.
The staff is quietly nice and very professional. A classic well-kept secret...
