La Chiquita de Quini, Cordoba: My Review

La Chiquita de Quini is a gastro taverna in the heart of Cordoba, and a place I discovered on my last night staying in the city.

This was my third trip to Cordoba, and in all honesty, I was never impressed by the culinary delights it offers, even less so with the mostly unprofessional staff in the establishments.

This trip changed my opinion in a few respects, and La Chiquita was certainly a unique find.

Let me start the review with a bit of a disclaimer: I did not check any reviews before going.

It was a pure chance I walked past and they had live music that evening, which drew me in. In addition to the gorgeous decor of course.

These places can be a complete gamble, often just a tourist trap that will lure you in with pretty surroundings, only to let you down on the food.

Luckily for me, I was pretty happy with the food – it really delivered on the flavours. I went with my husband and as we already had dinner before, we got a couple of small tapas which were delicious.

The service in this place leaves a lot to be desired, and after reading the reviews before writing this article, it seems like I’m not the only one who feels that way.

It took a long time to get anyone’s attention if we wanted to order a drink or were missing something, even though there were waiters walking past at all times.

The place has a lovely atmosphere and beautiful decor, even though it felt a little disconnected as you walked through the Bohemian-style bar area and end up on a traditional Andalusian patio with flower pots all around the walls.

It was a lovely change though, as I personally think Cordoba doesn’t offer much when it comes to a beautiful dining atmosphere. Most places are pretty traditional, or then straight-up boring.

The restaurant website doesn’t offer any indication of the background of the restaurant or the chef, only emphasizes the central location in Cordoba, making it sound more like a tourist trap rather than a unique dining experience to be enjoyed.

Reading the reviews on google made me a little uncomfortable and hesitant to add the review to my blog, especially when the owner lectures unhappy customers about learning the Spanish language and culture before making any assumptions about receiving discriminatory treatment at the establishment.

Would I come back for a full meal?

Probably not.
