Where to Eat in Cordoba

In Cordoba, you’ll find many local dishes that have been influenced by the Moors and have a very distinctive taste. Salmorejo, mazamorra, eggplant with honey, oxtail and flamenquín are all over the city. Unfortunately, there are a lot of touristy restaurants serving poor quality food around the Mosque and the Jewish quarter. To save you from having a bad experience, we have curated a list of the top restaurants & bars. Enjoy!

La Fuente 12 is a delightful restaurant tucked away in a quiet street close to the San Francisco church. They use fresh ingredients and have a lot of local dishes such as fried eggplant with honey and flamenquin. The service is excellent and the prices are very fair. We really enjoy the cod and their oxtail which is extremely tender.

CASA PEPE DE LA JUDERÍA

Casa Pepe is located in the historic Jewish quarter. It has a bit of an upscale feel to it and it is also not the cheapest option, however, the quality is quite high. One of the highlights is their rooftop terrace which has gorgeous views of the Mosque tower. Some of their dishes include rack of lamb, duck cannelloni, scallops, tuna belly with fried egg and oxtail. We recommend to make a reservation, especially if you want to be seated on the rooftop terrace.

Address: Calle Romero 1

La Bicicleta is a cool juice bar that also specializes in “zubatas” (a.k.a. “cubata + zumo” which means “long drink + juice”). With its informal retro decoration, La Bicicleta is popular among both locals and visitors. It is also a great spot for a late breakfast (usually opens at 10am) or a snack throughout the day (hummus, toasts, etc.).
