Very disappointed in the food here. One of the worst food experiences we had in Spain. We got the tapas menu and pretty much everything was bad. The waiter did not make up for any of it- inattentive and kind of rude. Would definitely recommend...More

We took the suggested Tapas menu, 9 “courses” (incl. 1 dessert) with a drink for 14.99 euros per person. Most of the tapas were tasteless (except for the pork stew and the salmorejo that were ok - the latter tasted too much of olive oil)....More

Well worth queuing for. Food is excellent especially the Px tails. Had a great waiter called Pedro who spoke English and helped us make great choices.

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.
