Delicious food and lovely place

They have a separate vegan menu, I tried the tabbouleh and it was delicious. The place had very good and relaxing vibes and the staff was attentive.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Nice place to chill

Lovely food and a beautiful space

I went to Amaltea on my first night in Cordoba and I was instantly charmed by the bright decor and ambience of the place. They have a separate vegan menu which includes dishes like lasagne, burrito, Asian-inspired salads and pasta dishes. I had pasta with artichokes and white truffle sauce and it was delicious and beautifully presented. The portions are not massive, so if you're very hungry, order a starter or save room for dessert. The service was attentive and friendly. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Cordoba.

Pros: Amazing food, Beautiful space, Friendly service

Cons: Small portions

Be careful with the vegan menu

It’s great that this place has a vegan menu. Unfortunately, when I ordered a pasta dish from the vegan menu, it came covered in Parmesan cheese (despite no mention of this on the menu). The staff also seemed annoyed that I returned the dish and didn’t apologise for their mistake.

Up until this point the vibes were good and it’s a shame this let the place down.

Lots of options, cute place, great service!

Probably the most vegan-friendly place in Córdoba. Extensive separate vegan menu and interesting alcoholic and non alcoholic drink options.

At first I gave it a 3/5 because I first ordered the lasagna, which was just vegetables with tomato sauce and some bready pasta-like layers, no vegan bechamel/cream or cheese. Tasted good but not something I would really enjoy with other better options. The staff saw I didn’t have much of it and offered to make me another dish, I chose the truffle and artichoke pasta which was delicious. Very kind of them and they were genuinely curious for feedback!

Full Vegan Menu - big portions

Highly recommended. Variety in the vegan menu, also for the little ones. Our 9 months old loved their food.

A Córdoba non ci sono molti ristoranti con opzioni vegane.
Questo, oltre ad essere uno dei pochi che c’è, ha tre menù diversi: normale, vegetariano e vegano.
Sono rimasta molto colpita dalla qualità dei piatti e dalla varietà delle opzioni vegane. Era tutto buonissimo e le porzioni erano molto grandi. Il ristorante non è grandissimo quindi è consigliato prenotare. Se siete vegani dovete farci un salto.

Pros: Varietà delle opzioni vegane, Qualità dei piatti

Separate vegan menu

This restaurant has a separate menu for vegans which was nice, lots of options (considering most places in Córdoba don’t have many options for vegans!).

I had beetroot mousse with crudités which was tasty and fresh, and the pasta with romanescu sauce, cherry tomatoes & basil - the sauce was too thick and heavy so I couldn’t finish the dish. The other pasta dish, with artichokes and truffle oil, smelled delicious.

Lovely staff and stylish interior.

Amazing vegan cuisine in Cordoba

Cordoba had my partner and I freaked out before arriving, as there are no vegan only restaurants in-town. After mulling over all of our options, we chose Amaltea because it had a vegan menu available online; we're so lucky -- this place has amazing food and an incredibly warm/beautiful ambience (we stayed for over 2 hours dining the night away). Two appetizers we loved: the grilled asparagus and the milhojas (little beet/avocado sandwiches with potatoes as the "bread"). Excellent service. One note: they offer reservations (the place was full when we were there) and if you use the WhatsApp number they give to message them earlier in the day, you should be fine getting a table for that evening. Awesome, awesome, awesome find.

I‘ll Come back

The quinoa lentils were fantistic! A bit fruity, light and cool - a good choice in this heat. On a second day, I had the leek with tomatoes (starter), which was gorgeous; the chickpeas with kimchi were not so much my taste. Still, it's great that there are so many new things to explore - I hope I can come back!

Separate vegan menu!

This restaurant was a surprising delight. Make sure you make a reservation - we got lucky walking in but they had to turn a few folks away. We enjoyed the asparagus with cherry tomatoes and peanut butter miso along with the lentil tartare and stir fry of veggies. All very tasty and it was nice to have an extensive separate vegan menu. Highly recommend!

Pros: Separate vegan menu with MANY options

Cons: Might not get in without a reservation

Super rico todo

Hemos ido un grupo de 5 amigos a cenar y sorprendió que tienen una carta vegana extensa, y está todo riquísimo.
Hemos cogido lasaña de verduras, wok de garbanzos con col morada, ajo negro y salsa de kimchi. Hemos cogido de entrante milhojas de patata con aguacate.

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas, Comida muy rica, Céntrico

Not recommendable, rather go to Burger King for vegan option

The restaurant immediately felt off. The owners were kinda unfriendly. The food was ok, lasagne was only a small slice of pasta. The service was really bad, they didn‘t like tourists at all since they were annoyed when the other table asked for the other menu/incredient overview. Rolled the eyes when she left the other table etc…

Expensive for what it is.

Would not come again!

Very good food and friendly staff!!

We really liked the vegan food, very tasteful and creative. Also some very good non-vegan options, which was great as we are a 'mixed' vegan and not yet vegan couple. The staff was very nice too. We'll be back.

Pros: Really good restaurant with great and many vegan, Very friendly staff, Very tasty food at a good price

Cons: I'm not allowed to give 5 stars by happy cow

Food was good but portion size very very small for the high price. Decoration was really pretty. Staff was not welcoming and ignored us a few times (just two other guests in the restaurant). Felt not good. All in all no recommendation for this place!

In a great location! Nice and peaceful place

A restaurant with not many tables, cozy and charming. The staff is really kind. The dishes are very 'local' and well prepared. Prices a little higher than average. It is not 100% vegan. Good solution in the beautiful Cordoba.

A sophisticated restaurant with vegan and vegetarian options

The service is really good and you feel you are in a professionally run restaurant. The food tastes very fresh and made with care. The prices are high for the small portions but everything tastes good. A place to eat when you want to go somewhere a bit more special.
