Had a lovely meal in here with friends. Was very quiet on a Sunday night but staff were friendly and attentive. Food was fabulous and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend and go back.

What a great cozy authentic Latin American restaurant. Staff are friendly, the food delicious and drinks fantastic. The arepas are out of this world, best I've ever had! Chicken mayo with avo was delicious. Great side of yucca and the margerita was divine. Can't wait...More

Food was outstanding! Service was great and attentive. The only thing which keeps me from giving a rating of 5 is that we were over charged by £30. It was all easily taken care of but still. The portion sizes were small, but coming from...More

My daughters and I had dinner at Sabor Criollo, to celebrate my eldest’s birthday. The restaurant itself is quite small, and casual, and to be honest, that is one of the things that I like about it. Service was excellent, as was the food. For...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
