We stopped for a coffee while walking around the Old Town. The cafe looks over a pretty flower filled park, with the Castillo being right alongside it.

This is a nice place, with nice people. But so many things could be better. In the middle of Spain's olive tree sea, a bit of bread and olive oil to sample while we read the menu, would have been great. We had scrambled eggs with "collejas" (a tasty weed), which were good. Fried aubergines in batter (oily and too... More

This restaurant is nicely situated near the castle. The outside terrace is the nicest one in Priego. The service is okay and the food also. We have to say that the fish and seafood we ate here was of excellent quality.

Priego De Cordoba is a pretty and historic town. Situated right next to the castle is Califato. A peach of a setting. Service is good and unobtrusive. Menu selection is good, including English, Germany and French translations. Opted for the mixed grill (€12.50) All perfectly cooked but way too much for one person. Mrs Oil had the hake - very...

Here you will find many different tasty traditional dishes including fish and goat. The service was impeccable. At one point my knife fell to ground, and the waiter nearly caught it before it hit the ground. Shady hacienda style.

Our visit to this town was simply a break on our journey from Jaen to the coast. We were enjoying a warm day for the time of year and in need of a drink discovered this bar near the castle.

We had dinner in this place and, having tried other places in Priego, we found it good, but not excellent. Food was good and at a reasonable price and the service was what we expected (even though they could have been more friendly).
