This was one of best restaurants during the stay in Andalucia. We ended up there in the afternoon for lunch and all was perfect. We came back the day after for dinner (you should book your table). The service is 5 star (Jesus in particular was so kind and helpful!). Try the pesto (ratatouille) with fried egg, you will certainly... More

After visiting the Mezquita we were looking for somewhere to have lunch along the street just outside the courtyard area. We looked at several menus, all of which looked very acceptable. then a young lady handed us a flyer, at which we barely glanced at first. A closer look revealed a choice of 9 starters and 9 mains in a... More

We were staying nearby and Bodegas Mezquita was one of tapas restaurants recommended by our receptionist. We were told that they win awards every year for their tapas and this is indicated on the menu. We had four 1/2 rations between the two of us and a basket of bread. It was all really delicious and the waiters were jovial... More

We ordered three dishes, but that was enough for two Japanese women. All dishes were delicious!! Also waiters were very kind and fun(especially Jose). They provided Japanese/English/Spanish menus and had known a lot of greeting-words. So We were really satisfied. We would go there again! Muchas gracias!! メスキータ近くで日曜夜も営業しているお店。 値段も手ごろですが料理もかなり美味しかったです! 女性2人だったので量は少し多めに感じましたが、タパス(ハーフの半分)やハーフを選べるものもたくさんあったので問題なかったです。 私たちは生ハム(ハーフ)とフラメンキン(生ハムを豚肉で巻いて衣をつけて焼いたもの)と茄子のフリットのようなもの(ハーフ)を注文しました。 ※フラメンキンは1サイズのみ 生ハムはもちろん、フラメンキンは肉肉しくて美味しかったですし、茄子は少し脂っこかったですが甘めのソースだったのでおやつ感覚で頂きました。 9時ごろだったので軽めにしました。 (ワイン一杯ずつ、2人で€35程) 店員さんは気さくで日本語で挨拶したりしてくれて楽しかったです。 ぜひまた行きたいです!

The menu is very helpful to tourists. It indicates which dishes are andalusian, sephardi, or recommend, which enables even the most unprepared tourists to discover local delicacies. I also would like to mention the graceful service of our waiter, Manu, who, albeit the language barrier, made us feel very welcomed and at home. I commend you, Manu!

Sorry Cordoba, but this is not what the stunning city of Cordoba is about..... Everything was closed, because we came in late and had to pick one restaurant at random which was open. Very nice and Andalucian style room with flamenco playing in the background, a rather tired young waiter who tried (in vain) to be affable and friendly, but... More

Hake had been ruined by a strong acidic sauce and deep fried to within an inch of its life. Revolting! Ordered croquettes instead: gloopy! Like battered glue. Meatballs gave my partner the squirts. Both of us suffered the whole night and next day. Seems quite popular so maybe we just got unlucky with our menu choices but wouldn't give it... More

We booked a table online two weeks before New Year's Eve and had a great time ringing in 2017 at Bodegas Mesquita Céspedes in Córdoba! From reservation to payment, the organization of the dinner went smoothly without a hitch. And as for our feast: five courses, consisting of generous portions of local cheese, the well-known jamón ibérico, seafood bisque, salmon,... More
