This was an outstanding meal from a very talented young chef. We had a tasting menu that was extremely imaginative and delicious. The olive oil tasting was fabulous. So many highlights in this perfectly designed meal. The wine flight to match was perfect.
The waiting staff were great, engaging and friendly but very professional.
I am sure it won’t be long before a Michelin star is forthcoming.

This restaurant is a destination, and well worth the taxi fare if you are staying in the old town of Cordoba. The chef is clearly passionate and knowledgeable, and each of the tiny dishes in the long tasting menu is based on his memories and experiences, and is a delight of flavour and technique. This is fine dining at its finest, I have no idea how he can do it at such a reasonable cost. If you are not fascinated by flavour and clever food combinations, stay away and leave bookings for those who are. I'd go back with no hesitation

We went for the 12 course taster menu and what a fantastic experience. High quality food, imaginative, creative and a great lot of fun. Possibly the best dining experience we have had and excellent value at only 36 euro. The staff were highly professional and the explanations given around each course added to the whole experience. Only regret we had is that we did not choose the wine tasters to compliment the various courses. Only a 7 euro taxi ride from centre of Cordoba old town.

This restaurant is run with passion and dedication. The staff and chef couldn’t be nicer or more helpful with explanations and translations. That said, there are a few things you should know before selecting it.

If you are a tourist, and staying in the historic area of Córdoba, understand that this is a restaurant in the modern city, a good 20 minute taxi ride and many centuries away from the charming old town. We didn’t know that until we got to Córdoba , but we decided to keep our reservation, make the trip and try the tasting menu, based on the rave reviews here on TripAdvisor.

It’s quite an experience. The flavors and textures in each course are unusual and surprising. To be honest, some were a little too unusual and surprising for my palate. The chef uses lots of purées and pâtés (one pate came in a tube), aioli and foam (clam foam, to be exact). There was even a warm, whole egg yolk in the middle of one dish. Each course was presented in a unique, often whimsical way, with an introduction either by the chef, or by our charming server.

Our dinner started at 9:00 (opening time) and lasted almost two hours. By the time the excellent last course of oxtail meatball arrived, I could barely manage a few bites. (Jet lag maybe partly to blame). Desserts were small and nice...but watch out for the paprika dust on the white chocolate and the unexpected pop rocks.

So, if you’re gastronomically adventurous, and looking for an experimental, 21st century experience, give ReComiendo and the tasting menu a try. If your time in Old Córdoba is limited, and you’d like a more traditional dinner, you might want to choose something else.

The tasting menu here is a lot of fun and bits of it are brilliant. The presentation and spectacle is great but the food, although good, didn’t quite match up. For starters there was just so much of it! My partner and I both struggled to finish dishes by about course 5 but it felt really awkward to leave things. Might sound silly but we honestly started to feel uncomfortable about it. Also, the food generally was too salty even by Spanish standards. The cod, for example, was hard to taste over the salty crust and seasoning. The meatballs were also very rich really salty. I think there are some really good aspects of this restaurant but it wasn’t quite the standout meal I had been expecting.
