Overall review of Parador de Cordoba restaurant

The restaurant is perfect in case you stay at the Parador of Cordoba. That is for sure. The key question is whether it is worth visiting the restaurant if you stay in the city center. If you want to enjoy a lunch with views over the city this may make sense. You should order a table at the terrace.

The biggest drawback is that the Parador is located several kilometers outside the city center. If you are willing to drive, you won’t be disappointed.
