After reading the many negative reviews, I was unsure of the place, but went since I was interested in the Flamenco. My main dish was very good (lamp chops), as was the service. The Flamenco group was first-rate. There were mainly Spaniards in the restaurant, which is a good sign. Try it!

While the food is not that interesting, it is quite ok. The greatest asset is the flamenco show. The show started at 20.30 which seemed earlier than other places.

The food was good enough and reasonably priced but go for the show! Three very professional performers who danced, sang and played their hearts out. and moved the hearts of all the listeners as well.

Beautiful looking place with exceptional music and dancing. Food is amongst the worst I've ever eaten and I'm by no means fussy. One dish was passable but the rest was tasteless with strange texture. Shame as it could be an all-round great experience.

Beautiful patio restaurant near the Mezquita in old town Córdoba. Tastefully decorated reflecting the arches of the Mosque, double table cloths and tiled floor. Attentive waiters serve authentic Andalusian cuisine. Seven tapas drink bread and dessert for €12. A large Andalusian salad was €6.10. The added bonus was a marvellous free show at 20.30 with Spanish guitar singer and flamenco... More

The place looks charming from the outside and we were hungry, so decided to give it a try. Worst restaurant ever! I should have known when we ordered the tapas collection and they showed up after 5 minutes with indeed 5 tapas dishes. The croquettes were simply unedable. Prefabricated and tasting only for the oil they were quickly fried in.... More

Terrible tapas. Nice building. Plenty of better places. Not recommended unless you want to get out of the sun.

While the restaurant architecture and interior design take you back to the Andalusian era and offer a very pleasant atmosphere, the food - at least what we ordered - was just ok. The main issue is that the restaurant was packed with tourists and the number of waiters was very small! While they were doing their best in serving all... More

Chose this restaurant because it looked nice and we were very hungry so didn't want to search too long. Should have kept looking! The place is a total tourist trap! Unfortunately we realised too late that it was full of tourists and there wasn't a single Spanish person. We had the daily menu for 10€. Got a free tapa with... More
