If you’re looking for some true Spanish experience this place is perfect. Intimate with attentive staff and cosy vibes. You don’t need to carefully source your ingredients to enjoy Spanish tapas. You just need to go there.

One of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. The atmosphere is fantastic and - after a wine or two - you get so swept up in it that you can forget you're in Edinburgh. The food is excellent - I'd recommend the 'Adobo de bacalao' -...More

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
