The Origin of the Restaurant's Name

This sauce had the main used of cleaning up the taste of the meat in poor condition. This is because at that time the maintenance of food was much more difficult to carry out successfully than today because we have our own refrigeration systems at home. In roman period just the people with the best positions could afford fresh food so the use of this sauce for hiding the poor condition it was popular to a large extend.
In spite of his name, in this restaurant the authentic garum is not served. The food of this Garum restaurant is characterized by having typical flavours of the Cordoba gastronomy applied to the modern cuisine, serving their dishes mostly as tapas.
