For a tasty little lunch this is an interesting option. It is a small traditional taberna at the corner of the cathedral. Can accommodate about ten or so people standing at the bar. Everyone else takes their food outside and sits on the wall. Ate the tortilla, boquerones and a cana for €6.

Very small typical Spanish tapas bar - no seating. Tapas were pretty good -famous for their "tortillas". However, €2 for a slice & €1.50 for a small beer, you can get cheaper elsewhere.

It is right next to Mezquita and people was in a long queue for tortilla. I tired one but it tasted just OK, nothing special. Instead you can enjoy drinks just outside of the bar and sit next to Mezquita for a break. Queue was long but it went smooth.

We continued our tour of local specialities at another recommended bar. From a food angle it was spot-on. From a personality angle, the guy must have been at the end of a long shift in this tiny place. There are two seats downstairs if you're lucky, and the upstairs of was roped-off, so we assumed that, out of season, it's... More

So, you would feel suspicious in eating right at the Mezquita, but this tortilla is worth the deal. You must try it. I regret I only had one piece!

First off, this place is the same as Casa Santos on TripAdvisor with a low ratings. I guess they became kind of "famous" of their huge tortillas and the location. But what I had was a very tiny slice of bland tortilla, sincerely one of the worst have ever tried!

It was our first time trying a potato tortilla and it is amazing. It is fluffy and tasty. The beer is refreshing. The taberna is small and the queue is rather long. However, the service is fast. It is nice to see many people seating on the raised platform opposite Bar Santos eating the tortilla.

As we generally do when we visit Cordoba, we had the usual tortilla and a beer sitting on the wall opposite, fantastic quality and value as always. If you have never tried the Santos experience, don't delay!

A small taberna that serves the local tortilla de patatas 'santos' that is a local comfort food. Busy at all times of day, expect to wait about 5 minutes inline to order. The wait is worth it for the aforementioned tortilla and the gazpacho. Grab some tapas with a drink and join the locals sitting at the wall of the... More
