Salmorejo (tomato and bread cream with dices of ham and eggs), bull´s tail, flamenquín (fried meat roll with ham), Spanish jamon ibérico of los Pedroches , alcachofas (artichokes) a la montillana…the problem will be to decide what to eat and where for a good meal with so much quality.

There is a high variety in Cordoba: the most traditional restaurants where you can eat the typical tapas, or locals where you can enjoy the avant-garde cuisine. That is why we want to make yor life easier, aiming with our recomendations to make the most of your trip.
La Taberna El Abanico, tradition with a bit of innovation
It is one of the most distinguished places in Calleja de las Flores (Flowers Alley), few metres from the Mosque-Cathedral. You can eat the traditional tapas from Cordoba, but with some innovation. The walls are filled with carnations, in the same way as the famous street. Es uno de los vecinos más ilustres de la Calleja de las Flores, a pocos metros de la Mezquita-Catedral. It is one of the most beautiful corners inside the historic district; new and dynamic restaurant with affordable prices. Salmorejo, stewed oxtail, fried potatoes, fried fish, grilled fish…There are many specialities. Don´t forget to try the desserts: highly recommended if you enjoy chocolate.
Bar Santos, the most famous bit of Spanish omelette.
It is a typical place where the most typical Spanish omelette in Cordoba is served next to a side of the Mosque. But at the same time so complicated and meritorious of doing. Apart from the specialty in tortilla wedges (very generous in as for volume), we found another version gratin with aioli, tapas deer and an economic menu proposal. And if the place is full, always you can take the lid and go outside to taste it while contemplating the Mosque wall. The site is privileged.
