For us this restaurant was fantastic. Delicious food. Separate vegetarian menu, also a separate gluten free menu. Staff was helpful and very conscious and sweet by nature. Atmosphere was gentle and beautiful.

i couldn't be happier with the lunch (after last night's dinner) we enjoyed here today. amaltea is largely vegetarian, but i enjoyed the best pork i have tasted in spain. in fact the chicken dish of last night was perfect, so let's just say it has all the vegetarian options of the most delicious vegetarian restaurant anywhere in the world, and the most delicious meat dishes, also. it defies categorization! the owner, Rachael, couldn't be more warm, inviting, and interesting. it really doesn't get any better than this. and the prices are very very reasonable. in fact i asked the owner for her favorite bottle of wine in the restaurant, and she brought me a house rose for only 12. i tried to order 2 courses, and she showed me how i could have the same meal with one course. she is trying to save me money. muchas gracias for todo!

This restaurant is easy to find and the food is FABULOUS. It is difficult to find vegetarian/vegan options in Spain and they nailed it! The owner shared some interesting history on Spanish traditional food and was incredibly kind and helpful. Wines were also great!!

We had excellent arugula salads (one with eggplant, one with goat cheese) and fish dishes (one cod, one tuna). While we have had other exceptional dishes on this trip, no other meal has been flawless. The proprietor managed to serve a busy dining room all by herself--she had given her staff the day off for a holiday--in a way that seemed so easy and natural that I asked her if she always handled the room alone. This was the first meal of our trip, and a tough act to follow.

Do not be put off by any negative reviews. This place is the real deal if you want very good vegetarian food in Cordoba. It is reasonably priced for food and wine, and very good value. Quantities are plentiful and quality is high.

We have just returned from a wonderful meal there. Roast vegetables, rice and hummus; excellent, pasta with artichokes, rugola and pine notice; delicious. And the cheesecake...one of the best.

Do go, you will not regret it.
