La Paloma Review
About 30 km (18 miles) south of Priego de Córdoba, this restaurant overlooks the rolling hills of the Subbética. It's run by an Italian-Spanish couple; wife Elena hails from Tuscany and honed her culinary skills in one of Marbella's more exclusive restaurants before opting for the Córdoba countryside. The menu has plenty of Italian influence, including dishes like roast lamb fillets with herbs and mustard and jumbo shrimp in creamy garlic sauce. Most of the vegetables are from the couple's organic garden.
