“Absolutely delicious, but very expensive ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is surprisingly pretty, the staff are wonderfully friendly and the food is absolutely delicious.

However, you don't get much from the main plates,I'd suggest sticking with the tapas

“Not just another tapas bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

On staying over in Edinburgh recently we decided to try something different. This place had been recommended and we booked a table. Selection was small but very enjoyable as with the wine. If you visit you should try the Jumilla, outstanding. Down side if any was you need to pay cash as their card machine does not always function. Worth a look.

“Disappointed ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We were both looking forward to Tapas this evening. Arrived at 8 prompt and shown to a table. Ordered drinks and food at the same time. Meat platter at 14.95 arrived. Didn't feel it was worth the price. Tapas arrived and again for the limited selection and price felt that what arrived was not worth the money.

The food was tasty, how ever felt the service was poor. She appeared more interested in talking to her friend/family than attending to everyone in the restaurant

We won't be coming back when we come back to Edinburgh.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Visited this restaurant last night. Excellent food and wine menu with informed service. It is quite small so tables close together and last night the card machine was not working which caused a trip to a near by ATM but the quality of the food more than made up for this. Highly recommended.
