The food here was quite good. The ambience was okay. Same with the service. They do not offer wine by the bottle. Only by the glass. This meant that our server had to make numerous trips as the pours were quite small. As a result,...More

This is a little depressing - several places have tables outside in the same piazza. We sat down, bought a beer, and realised we’d sat at the wrong table but - all ok! - it was the table of the restaurant where we had a...More

Hi Virginia, There is a taxi rank 100 meters from our restaurant. From our restaurant to the train station is 10 minutes by taxi. The answer is yes, you have enough time for the meal. Best, Rafael

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.
