Delicious food and fun, casual vibe. Had excellent service and enjoyed the fantastic Korean wings and black bean dip followed by beef, prawn, lamb and pork belly tacos. Love that it’s byob but cocktails are great too. We miss their sister place in TollX but this more than makes up for it!

Food excellent as always. This was my first visit to Bodega Leith having been at Tollcross a number of times. Despite being busy it lacked the buzz of the much smaller Tollcross restaurant. Still , friends who we introduced as first timers thought it was excellent, and would have given 5s across the board. Was a Thursday will try at the weekend next time. Still love it though 👍

Delicious tacos again. Love the cod ones. Sweetcorn side was great but we didn’t like the aubergine one so much. Great service.

Simply put, meal and service were both excellent. I’m we were at the old bodega quite a bit but this was our first visit to the new site and the food seemed even better! Not having full byob as it used to is the only reason value isn’t also at five stars as everything on the menu is well worth the prices! Would highly recommend!

I am gluten free and dairy free. They were very friendly and accommodating and I had lots of choice on the menu. They offered to remove any dairy and replace. The food was delicious. I had the pork belly taco, squash taco and ceviche. My friend is vegetarian and she also loved it. We will be back.

Really interesting and tasty Mexican-fusion dishes, but portion sizes are quite small, so if you’re hungry order 3 tacos each (ie 3 sets). Guacamole is delicious and the interior design is very cute. Would come again.

We used to go to the bodega in tollcross, but since that one closed down we just missed the tacos so much. This place is number one and on the top list of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. The host Naco is always so welcoming and we will keep on coming back again and again. Highly recommend it and There is plenty of choice - also for vegans- true authentic flavours and great chilled atmosphere

Love Bodega Leith, third visit and did not disappoint.
Would be great to see another vegetarian taco option on the menu as only two with two vegetarian diners means quite a lot of the same thing, delicious though!

My husband and I love this place. We would always go to the one in toll cross so we were gutted to hear of it closing.
The Leith one is just as fantastic though. Amazing food as always and very friendly warm staff. The flavours are just incredible. Be prepared for messy fingers ... best way to eat wings and tacos.
This is always our first choice of places to eat in Edinburgh.

Lovely place, great food and wonderful service!

Really lovely beef tacos.. should have ordered more. Really good guac and chips with really good spicy sauce on the side.

Decor very simple but modern and cool, I like the pink walls.

Everyone seemed to be happy and chilled and the cocktails looked good..although I stuck with Pacifico! Definitely going back

Food was fresh and tasty. Such a mix of flavours which was great. Restaurant was a little on the noisy side but it was hogmanay so thats expected. My favourites were the black bean dip, Baja cod tacos, Korean wings and the spicy potatoes. I never have enough room to try more. Just means I need to return to sample more of the amazing menu. Great food, good service. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Waited over an hour for food and nobody came over to check on us - normally the food is quite good here but this time it let us down. Tempura broccoli was great, tacos were average. Food was late and then the waiter told us he needed the table back.

Friendly attentive service and a nice atmosphere. We loved both the bean and guacamole dips, and of the tacos, the cod and buffalo chicken were our favourites, so delicious and so moreish. Personally we felt the avocado taco lacked flavour and needed a more flavourful dressing or sauce with it, but that’s obviously our personal tastes. Great margaritas. I’m sure we will be back!
