Authentic freshly cooked Mexican food. Not too expensive. Great menu with good vegetarian options too. Always full so book as it's very small. Excellent frozen margerittas.

This places looks a little unapproachable from the outside but give it a go. We had a delicious meal here. Could not believe the portion of nachos for 2 - it was enormous! The menu has plenty of variety and also some good vegetarian options. It was nice to try something different which you won't find on a standard menu... More

My boyfriend and I went here for an evening out, it's quite small inside but absolutely perfect. We are both huge Mexican food fans and we were not disappointed; hands down the best Mexican food I've had in Edinburgh. Wine is expensive so I'd highly recommend getting a jug of frozen margaritas which cost about the same amount (we had... More

Recommended by a friend and advised to book, which we did. During our visit approximately 10-12 people were turned away as not booked and this was a Thursday night in February. Very small and compact inside and not much privacy as you are so near to table next to you and hear all conversations! Ordered Nachos (corn chips on a... More

We came here on a recommendation from a local friend and we weren't disappointed. The food and service were absolutely amazing. The only problem was that they had lost our booking but as were in earlier (6.30pm) there were tables free. I'd suggested booking and then confirming the booking before arriving but it's defiantly worth it!!

Great little restaurant, which when we arrived at 2pm, was full, which on a week day, I think is always a good sign! The staff were very friendly and the food hearty and very reasonably priced about £10 upwards for a main £5 for a margarita, 5 or 6 different latin lagers, tasty Mexican grub which was exactly as described...

This restaurant was quaint and had a nice atmosphere but smelt a little strange. The nachos were ok but nothing special. The enchiladas were really nice. It was ok for lunch but I wouldn't want to go for an evening meal. My partner also saw a man sat on the work top in the kitchen which put us off a... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurants is small and cosy feeling and it was lucky we booked as it was always busy. The food was faultless and the cocktails perfect. The price was also very reasonable for food and drinks. We were also given special treatment with tequila including a worm for the birthday girl. I had no... More

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.
