We strolled in without having made a booking and were lucky enough to get in. The seating is a little cramped but that kind of adds to the atmosphere. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and chose veggie chilli enchiladas and chicken fajitas. Both meals were very tasty and good portions. The fajitas came with a variety of dips.... More

Best Mexicans I've ever had, enough said! Great menu and good selection of beers and wine too. The Mexican paella was superb

This is only a small restaurant and was busy when we wanted to eat, but they fitted us in and boy am I glad they did. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, we had a wonderful last evening in Edinburgh, on our wedding anniversary thanks to this place. Loved the food, loved the atmosphere, had a laugh with couple... More

A popular restaurant which isn't very big and we saw a number of people turned away so it is definitely worth booking. As with most Mexican restaurants it offers some good vegetarian dishes.

We visited here recently. We were really looking forward to it with such great reviews. Unfortunately we found the food very disappointing. There was absolutely no spice or flavour to the dishes. I ordered fajitas as a main and they had no flavour what's so ever! No jalapeños either. For the restaurant being so small it could be someone's living... More

Dear Hawaiiwillbe, sorry to read that you felt "let down" on your recent trip to Miros Cantina, but I feel I must take issue with some of the points you raised, Firstly, our our Fajitas are marinated in a blend of spices before being cooked on the char-grill, and served with guacamole (spicy), salsa (full of Jalapenos), cheese, sour cream,...

My husband and I discovered this little treasure last year, and it is literally our 'go to' place every time we visit Edinburgh. The food is amazing, real authentic Mexican, home made, just perfect. Might be slightly over budget for some people but believe me it is worth it!! The portion sizes are pretty big so definitely go with an... More

Stumbled across miros when looking for something to eat and it's a very festive Mexican restaurant. Very small but cosy, had a great atmosphere. We had the small nachos to start which were more than enough to share! Then had chili con carne enchiladas and chicken fajitas which were very good portions and were delicious! I recommend the flavored margaritas... More

I can't fault this place. We just happened to stumble across it and it didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was incredible and so flavoursome and the place was so warm and authentic. If only I lived closer, I would definitely be a regular!

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
