About
Ola Kala is a small fun-loving restaurant in the West End of Edinburgh, close to Haymarket station. It has just a few tables in and outdoors, but the aromas of the freshly grilled dishes, carry the visitor around Greek colourful places of an endless summer dream. At Ola Kala, salads and dips are at their best, seasoned with herbs and spices, along with and gyros wraps and main courses. In our cosy relaxing atmosphere, you can also enjoy the best walnut baklava in town, after a delicious and modestly priced meal.

We found the place just by walking by. The greek food was what we were secretely wished for us. We odered two wraps and they were delicious. Just the chef is a bit stressful. Nevertheless: Recommended!

Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
