This place brings back memories of Tapas eaten in Southern Spain. The quality of the ingredients, the cooking thereof and the presentation cannot be faulted. The staff and the service are amongst the highest I've enjoyed, and I've enjoyed some exceedingly good ones. An amazing experience and consistently good over time.

The food here was delicious and place felt really authentic. Staff were efficient and friendly. The £30 deal for rioja and 4 tapas was excellent value for money.

Went on a recommendation from a friend, and what a gem. You could easily walk past this smashing place and miss the best tapas in town! With excellent portion sizes, charming staff and very reasonable prices throughout, I cannot recommend enough.

If you like quantity then it's fine, but with the exception of the aubergine fritters the rest of the food was mediocre I'm afraid. Wines were poor value, but they did have some interesting bottled / canned beers. Insist (I mean, really insist!) on a table in the front area, we were shepherded to the back room with no ambience...

Fantastic dinner here! Some recognisable tapas and some new ones! Would really recommend the presa, the ribs, the pork cheeks and the artichoke salad! Will definitely be back! Our waiter was excellent, very knowledgable and enthusiastic! Oh also order the olives!!

Loved it. Great service, nice atmosphere, superb food. We initially done 3 each for 2 people and had another 2 before we left! The beef croquets are incredible, it's difficult to pick a favourite but that was mine, although the large prawns (gambas pilpil I think) pushed it very close. Very reasonable prices, delicious tasty food with quality background music... More

Number 1 good sign was that we could get a last minute, late night Saturday booking. Number 2 good sign was the number of potential vegan options on the menu. Number 3 good sign was when the head waiter brought me the VEGAN menu. I was mega impressed with the options, not having expected any in a Spanish restaurant. My... More

Visited here when we were visiting Edinburgh after seeing the reviews on TA and glad we did. We took the advice of our waiter and ordered 4 tapas to share plus bread and olives. Everything was really tasty. The olives were large and the best I have tasted outside of Spain. We had black pudding, blue cheese croquettes, patas a... More

My husband and I dined here last Friday for a early evening dinner. The staff were great, very attentive and helpful in recommending dishes. We enjoyed 5 tapas and bread. I have to say Tapa's portions are quite generous which is great for my husband because usually we leave tapas bars and he's still hungry. We really enjoyed the boneless... More

Description
No matter where you are in Spain, a moments walk from the main tourist traps will almost always immerse you in the hustle and bustle of real Spanish life- busy bars and restaurants full of animated discussions conducted over fresh, homemade food. With this in mind, we selected our home of 19 Shore Place as the perfect venue to recreate this wonderful ambiance in Edinburgh.
