Description: This tavern is situated adjacent to the central San Miguel Square. Serving guests on three floors, the eatery belongs to the touristic consortium “Tabernas de Córdoba”. According to notes of Cordoba annalist Francisco Solana, the tavern has been existing since the beginnings of the 1940s.La Montillana’s menu list features dishes typical for the Cordoba area, including traditional Salmorejo, oxtail, Flamenquín, eggplants, suckling pig and codfish. There are different daily recommendations, depending on the respective season.The first floor harbors a hall with capacity for 50 - 60 guests. The second floor has another hall, which accommodates smaller gatherings. Both halls have a bathroom and a wardrobe. Large windows allow perfect views of the San Miguel Church with the large rosette in the facade.La Montillana’s decoration reflects the bullfight tradition. Among other items, the life-sized painting „Picador“, created by local artisan Fernando García Herrera, is impressive. Also worth mentioning are the works of painter López Canito, including paintings depicting the so-called five caliphs of bullfight – Lagartijo, Machaquito, El Guerra, Manolete und El Cordobés.This tavern also has an extensive wine list. Guests can choose from more than 50 wines.

When you stay in hotel San Miguel you have to eat in this restaurant. You can't miss it as it is adjacent to the Plaza San Miguel. The restaurant has only 4 tables at the outside as the plaza is occupied by tables of other restaurants as well. Still it's a nice start to have your starters and wine outside before you go inside for the main course. The plaza is occupied by the church of San Miguel and you see a lot of local people walking by. The wine, by the way, is excellent.
Inside, the restaurant has a real Spanish colour scheme and the seating is good. Great tapas and other food is available. When you have finished your meal, you will receive a glass of amontillado on the house, showing that a wine made in Cordoba should get the same admiration as the sherry of Jerez gets.

What a great place and what great food

Highly recomended:
Spinach salad with marinated quail
"Ortiguillas" (Fried sea weed)
"Cochifritos" Deep fried and tender pork rinds
And to top it all the best fino "sherry" (Dry) ask for "Electrico" brand

You will love every minute of it

Thank Fernando C

Very good tapas in a nice atmosphere. Menu was different enough and food quality was excellent. Great waiter (Angel) who pleasantly asked us to review the restaurant.

We booked Taberna La Montillana 4 months before.
The staff were very helpful though we couldn't speak Spanish but whatever we asked they couldn't be more cooperative.
I had grilled fish and my husband grilled Ox cooked on hot rocks.
I asked for chilli they brought this amazing home made chilli sauce.
Jose our waiter was very happy to get us what we asked for.
The place, food and staff were great.

This restaurant recommended in Lonely Planet, for good reason. Friendly service, lovely old bar with fascinating old black and white photos relating to bull fighting and matadors. Try the tapas of smoked sardine with black garlic, absolutely divine! Loads of different sherries to try.
