We had tried once before to eat here at a family gathering, but sadly they don’t open for lunch. A much smaller family outing on a Saturday evening (we always feel Tapas is for family or very close friends; not for acquaintances!). From the first...More

We loved this restaurant! It is small, intimate and very authentic. We loved every one of the tapa we tried. Great wine and sherry choices too. We'll definitely be back the next time we are in Edinburgh.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
