Taverns of the Old Quarter of Córdoba"Come into “Tundidores” street, to Salinas, another ancient tavern. Founded in 1924 by Francisco de Paula Salinas, was supplied by his early years with wines from their own winery. According to Ramirez de Arellano, there was already another tavern since 1879. So, it is more than centenarian.
relaxed and authentic. Tappas are huge. We had a big plate of raw tomatoes with nice dressing, pieces of local oranges, mushrooms and grilled eggplant. A very fine vegan meal! They leave the cheese out when you ask.
We stopped here for lunch last week and were delighted to get a table as the restaurant was very busy. Staff were friendly and efficient even though they were busy. This place has a wonderful atmosphere, with a number of rooms situated off a central...covered courtyard. Everything was great except for the food which, given the higher than average prices, was disappointing. The orange and cod salad turned out to be a big plate of orange segments with cod and raw onions and the Spinach omelette was swimming in oil. The only redeeming feature were the croquettes which were fab. Given the positive reviews we were expecting something more to be honest. There are nicer places to dine.More
I can't work out whether this place is trying to be a high-end restaurant or a tapas bar. It seems almost stuck between the two. A lovely building and impressive interior that seems quite formal and serious. The service was very good and a couple...of our dishes were good. I can't recommend the flamenquin though - dry and tasteless. Even the lemon that came with our boquerones en adobo was dry and had clearly been sitting on the side for quite a while.
We wouldn't return.More
We had dinner at this restaurant. We didn't have reservations and although at first the host was giving us a hard time to sit a group of 5 people despite having lots of tables open, but then he somehow was able to find us a...table in one of the inside rooms.
The food was good, especially the tortilla Española, or Spanish omelette, which has to be one of the best I've ever had. It was served hot (much better than eating cold as a tapa) with a soft, runny center that was perfection. We also had the flamenquín, which is made with rolled pork loin with ham covered with bread crumbs and deep fried, and the traditional tripe dish which is not a dish everyone would enjoy but it was very flavorful.
We ended our meal with a dessert called tocino del cielo, an egg yolk and sugar dessert which was way too sweet and not something I'd order again.More
I live in Cordoba and love eating at traditional tabernas. Unfortunately, Salinas is no longer what it used to be or still pretends to be. Yes, the place is lovely and worth a look, but this is it. The food is awful. They only serve...full portions - no tapas, no media racion. So you cannot enjoy the pleasure of trying several dishes. The food is tasteless and the traditional wine, el fino, mediocre. Never again!More
Visited here for lunch. First to arrive upon opening and so was seated right away. Staff friendly. Inside of the restaurant was relaxing and the décor was of an old world style with plenty of art. Food was tasty and the portions were LARGE. Prices...very reasonable. Many locals eating there so you know it's a popular place. Recommended.More
Lovely old taberna in the old town dating from 1847. Very interesting as made up of lots of little rooms with fantastic pictures on the walls. We started with a drink in the small bar before having lunch in the covered courtyard room. The food...was simple but well cooked and delicious - a racion was about 9 euros - plenty for two. Recommend a Tinto de Verano (red wine with lemon soda) as a lunchtime drink.
It was full of locals eating lunch so you can't go wrong. Highly recommend.More

Tabernas are informal places where you can get good food and wine at reasonabe prices, so usually they do not take reservations, . What you might want to ask at your hotel is if the Tabernas open at 1:30, since lunch time in Spain is usually taken at around 2:00.
