Visited for a leisurely late lunch after the morning at the tourist sites. The menu was interesting and delicious (especially the ox tail - wish I'd have chosen that as well). Although the service was a bit slow it didn't matter. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. It should be the first choice for anyone in Cordoba.

What a gem--wish we had more time there. The owner attracts the best local crowd. Very traditional little restaurant, wonderful patio. First place I will go to when I return..

This restaurant was just round the corner from our hotel. It is set down a little courtyard/alley. We ate at one of the few outside tables, though the inside looked quite interesting. We were served by the owner (?) who spoke some English and was very helpful. We both had he cold tomato soup which is a local specialty, followed... More

Really enjoyed our evening here. The staff were very friendly and keen to help us improve our Spanish through their explanations about the food and drink on offer. The food was excellent and it was the highlight of our first day in Córdoba.

The friendliness of the service, the quirky atmosphere and the good food meant that my wife and I kept finding ourselves returning here each day while staying in Cordoba. Even if we ate somewhere else one evening we would return to La Fragua for a last drink at the bar!

The restaurants in the Jewish quarter of Cordoba are all overpriced and a bit of a shock for us having just arrived from economical Seville. This restaurant is very typical and tucked away. We came a bit too early (9pm) and left close to 11, there were only about 4 other tables occupied (it was a Tuesday though). We were... More

In the seat heat of Córdoba, we found a cool and welcoming refuge at La Fragua. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left, we were treated to a memorable meal. The food was splendid, simple but using the freshest and best ingredients with real passion; the local red was superb. At the end of the meal... More

The oxtail was delicious. The service was always provided with a smile. We have been offered a delicious drink at the end of the dinner. This restaurant is authentic.

My husband and I shared delicious food and wine in a warm, inviting atmosphere with wonderful service. The owner, Pepe, tended to our needs and made wonderful recommendations. The tuna in particular was amazing. Also enjoyed the creme brûlée for dessert. And, to top it off, it was affordable! Highly recommend this restaurant.
