The tapas were very good, good selection of wines by glass, especially the "generoso" ones. The service was very good and attentive, out waiter Lolo has been very kind and his suggestions were just perfect: thanks Lolo.

Great evening at Mezquita. Our waitress, Ana spoke excellent English, very friendly and engaging, gave excellent recommendation for wine, and was kind enough to advise when we over ordered. Good choice of food, excellent taste and definitely a place to visit again if ever we return to Cordoba.

Very nice to tourists * Oxtail: We've tried a lot of oxtail in Spain and other countries, and the oxtail dish at Bodegas Mezquita Cespedes is some of the best I've had. The meat is so tender, falls of the bone and melts in your... More

We had drinks here on our first night in Cordoba and then returned the following evening and had the tapas platter - and a some extras ones too. The food was good, the staff were friendly and the red wine that the waiter recommended was very drinkable.

I had a few tapas that were a delight. The place was not crowded by only tourists, there were also locals. Decoration is a nice mix of modern and traditions. Staff was wonderful!

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.
