A word from Café Andaluz - Edinburgh
Located on George Street in Edinburgh’s New Town, is the latest addition to the Café Andaluz family. Head Chef Andy Crawford and his team aim to provide quality Spanish tapas using the finest and freshest ingredients. Focusing on delivering an authentic Spanish experience, Café Andaluz’s wines are sourced solely from Spain. The Andalucian tasting menu and Gourmet set menu solve the age old problem of deciding what to eat. We recommend Gambas pil pil (hot roast peeled prawns with olive oil, fresh chillies and garlic) and the pato alla frances (confit of duck leg with red wine and thyme).

    We had the pre-theatre option which was excellent value. Plenty of choices and every dish we had was really tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Live this place, food is great especially the Andalusian black pudding. The pre-theatre menu at £14.95 for 3 tapas and desert is a bargain.

    The food is always excellent and service the same - I take clients there often and find that they then start to take their own contacts there due to the above but also a very relaxed atmosphere.

  • Missing Booking

    Dined on 20/8/2012
    Apart from arriving and the restaurant not having my booking, booked via Top Table, which has now happened on 3 occasions, and thankfully they have had spare tables as it was during the week, the food, service and atmosphere are extremely good. There is such a wide range of dishes you can order a few different dishes every time you go. Although in the middle of the city centre when you are inside you could actually believe you are abroad.

  • Excellent Tasty Tapas
    Waterbabes
    Dined on 28/7/2012
    We had a lovely range of 6 tapas dishes to share and they were hot, tasty and served quickly. The prawns were especially delicious and the calamari cooked to perfection There is a great range of Spanish wines on the menu at a reasonable price. I also love the little home made chunk of tablet they serve with the fresh peppermint tea. Although it's Scottish it's a great touch in the Edinburgh restaurant. Service was fast and friendly although nothing special there is nothing to complain about either.

    I am a regular visitor to Cafe Andaluz in George Street, Edinburgh and it never disappoints. The pre-theatre menu is excellent value for money with a great selection of tapas to choose from. The wine list is extensive offering something for every taste/wallet. Friendly, efficient staff. I would highly recommend.

  • Disappointing Lunch
    M610
    Dined on 16/6/2012
    Overall, a very disappointing visit to a restaurant that has in the past been very good. £18.95 each for a set lunch menu to share (nine items between two of us) is a bit over-priced for the standard of the food served. Four items came as the "first course" and in the main they were quite good. The remaining dishes, however, were stodgy and not up to the standard you would normally expect from this venue. It's doubtful we will visit again, bearing in mind the cost - at just over £60.00 for two of us including wine and coffee, it's just not worthwhile.

    Enjoyed Cafe Andaluz in Edinburgh last night as always. Only one little gripe!! The raspberry pavlova was exceptionally smaller than usual. Usual size gorgeous meringue, but tiny teaspoon of cream and only about 5 raspberries. Still tasted delish though. Waiting staff excellent as usual.

    Anthony
    Dined on 29/2/2012
    Chose fixed menu with Paella to keep it simple, and hopefully get a good variety. Paella was not very good. Fish was overcooked. Not very tasty. Most of the tapas were just average. Not sure why this gets such a good rating. I have been to several other good tapas restaurants in other cities and there is no comparison. This is the second tapas restaurant I have been to in Edinburgh and been disapointed. I think I will take them off my dining list for here.

    Cafe Andaluz Edinburgh. Sorry this place just didn't do it for me! I liked the authentic Spanish decor and the staff were friendly. I dinned with friends on Sunday night and there was a good atmosphere but the food let it down. We had 3 Tapas each and not one of the dishes would you describe as excellent, merely acceptable. I expected more.

  • The last time we had tapas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 21/2/2012
    The last time we had tapas for a meal was at Cafe Andaluz in Glasgow in 2008. We enjoyed their food and service. Now that they have a restaurant in Edinburgh we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary and ascertain if their food was as good as friends and neighbours claimed. For a Tuesday evening the restaurant was very busy, booking appeared to be necessary, and the whole experience was really worthwhile. One problem, the main toilets were upstairs.

    I went to Cafe Andaluz in Edinburgh for an early evening dinner at 6.30pm with a friend. It was already very busy which is a great sign. We had a mixture of tapas plus a bottle of cava and really enjoyed it. Recommend the black pudding with apple chutney as it's delicious!

    We just loved our experience at Cafe Anduluz during our sightseeing trip to Edinburgh - I had read good reviews and we were not disappointed. It is a very authentic restaurant ouzing spanish ambience - Our food was scrumptious, the best tapas we have ever experienced - leaves certain other restaurants standing. Have since recommended it to a friend who is currently visiting Edinburgh. Would have no hesitation is recommending it again
