NileGuide Expert tip:
To try a little bit of everything, come around 2pm on weekdays and order the affordable Menú del Día. It includes a fixed first course, many choices for a tapa and second course, beverage, and dessert.
Moriles is bustling with regulars at all hours of the day. This popular bar and restaurant serves superior quality traditional tapas in a relaxed environment. Everything is homemade and extremely flavorful, like the carne con tomate
(stewed meat in a savory tomato-based sauce) and rabo de toro
(stewed oxtail with french fries). Córdoba is known for its salmorejo
, which is made of puréed tomatoes, breadcrumbs, garlic, vinegar, and olive oil, and you have to try it at Moriles. The first floor has simple chairs and tables, a diner-style black and white floor, and busy bartenders behind a long bar. You'll be surprised to find an incredibly peaceful, elegant dining room downstairs, which is decorated with pale yellow walls and warm, modern, wooden accents. If it's nice out, relax on the outdoor patio, which is just across the street from the gardens Jardines de Juan Carlos I.
