“Everything was absolutely incredible” is something you often hear from people who have dined at Garum 2.1, a slick gastrobar at the end of Calle San Fernando, one of Córdoba’s most lively streets. Garum serves meat but offers an excellent range of vegetarian dishes, including Spanish classics such as tortilla
a cold tomato and garlic soup that hails from Córdoba (ask for the jamon
garnish to be left off).
Everything here is enlivened with modern, innovative tweaks, which makes for a refreshing change from the city’s more traditional restaurants.

This colourful and cheerful eatery is situated just a block away from the Mosque-Cathedral
, on the riverside thoroughfare of Calle Ronda de Isasa. In an interior of purples and oranges you can choose from a good selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes, an excellent wine menu and several artesan beers. Standout meals are the pasta with artichoke and white truffle and the sautéed vegetables with noodles. Owing to the quality of the food and friendliness of the service, Amaltea is very popular so it’s recommended to reserve a table, especially in the evenings.
