Located in the residential San Pedro neighborhood, just a short walk from the Mezquita, you will find Bodegas Campos. It was founded in 1908 as both a wine cellar and tavern. Today Bodegas Campos offers a number of dining options: La Taberna (tavern), a formal restaurant, a wine cellar, and rooms that are used for catered events.
The interiors are rustic and classic Andalusian in design, with terracotta tile floors, wrought iron accents, and wood-beamed ceilings. The Sala Célebres room features pictures of 30 famous locals, including painters, dancers and mayors. Be sure to stop and look at the oak barrels that line the rooms and corridors, as they are signed by many of the famous people who have dined at Bodegas Campos, including members of the Royal family, celebrities, and foreign dignitaries.
The restaurant menu features classic Córdoba cuisine. Ingredients are from high quality local vendors, and the fresh fruits and vegetables come from the restaurant’s own orchard. Some signature dishes include the Ensalada de Bacalao y Naranja (a salt cod salad with orange dressing), Paté de Perdiz Casero y Aceite de Trufa (homemade partridge paté with truffle oil), and Solomillo de Ternera con Migas al Vino Tinto (sirloin with red wine sauce). There is also a wide selection of wines to choose from, and be sure to leave room for dessert.
La Taberna menu features a nice selection of traditional tapas, including the local favorite Salmorejo soup, traditional Gazpacho, Boquerones en Vinagre (anchovies in vinegar), and Habitas con Huevo y Jamón (beans with egg and ham). There is also a selection of main dishes, including Rabo de Toro Deshuesado (oxtail stew), Arroz de Verduras (rice with vegetables), and Puntas de Solomillo con Verduritas (sirloin tips with vegetables). For dessert try the Flan Casero (homemade caramel custard), Pastel Cordobés (local cake), or the Leche Frita con Helado de Lima (fried milk with lime ice cream).
