Fodor's Expert Review El Caballo Rojo

$$$ Cordoba Spanish

Though now under new ownership, this has been one of the most famous traditional restaurants in Andalusia, frequented by royalty and society folk. The interior resembles a cool, leafy Andalusian patio, and the dining room is furnished with stained glass and dark wood; the upstairs terrace overlooks the Mezquita. The menu combines traditional specialties, such as rabo de toro and salmorejo, with more modern versions, such as almejas finas al Moriles (clams in sweet sherry-like wine) and pez espada a la cordobesa con gambas (swordfish Córdoba style with prawns). A delicious selection of homemade tarts and flans are served from a trolley.
