An all in all nice place to have both a quick meal of a few tapas, or a full dinner in Córdoba. Conveniently close to the Mezquita Cathedral, with friendly waiters, an open but still intimate atmosphere, and ok food for every palate. Across the street, on the corner opposite the Mezquita Cathedral, you'll find their gourmet shop, with a... More

I booked a table for Christmas lunch here, online from the UK. I had no idea what it might be like, except that the website looked good and the communication was easy. We arrived at Spanish lunchtime of 2pm - it's right next to the beautiful Mezquita, so easy to find. The place was buzzing (perhaps with a few tourists,... More

We had a great dinner here, thanks to Manuelo, our waiter. We chose a number of items and his suggestions turned our ideas into an awesome experience. The portions here are very generous, good to keep in mind; half portions may be better to order than full ones. We shared everything: starting with a salad. followed by fried eggplant. The... More

Pedro and Lolo were very good. Couldn't complain. Food was tasty and service excellent. I guess being empty helped too.

This place is a gem. Food was the best on our trip, the portions were HUGE (we ordered a tapas and a half-portion each and didn't have room for dessert) and the atmosphere was made by our wonderful waiter Jose Criado. We hope to visit Córdoba again in the future!

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.
