    A lovely place: food was amazing, the service exceptional, and it's just in front of the Edinburgh Playhouse, if you are looking for a bite before theatre. I will definitely be back!

    A great restaurant with friendly and attentive staff. Tapas dishes are very tasty. We've been to La Sal 3 times now and always enjoy our meals and very central for attending shows at the Playhouse theatre. Would highly recommend.

    Great unexpected find. First time here and loved it. Very welcoming, great service and delicious food. Only observation is that we expected portions akin to Spanish tapas, i.e. small dishes, but these are much bigger! We started by ordering 6 dishes between two and were (rightly) advised that this was quite a lot! We reduced to 5 but would have been satisfied with 4 (at least for a lunch). Will definitely visit again.

    We had a delightful meal at Lasal. The food was well presented, well cooked and very tasty. Our server (sorry can't remember his name) was attentive without being overbearing. There was a pleasant ambience in the restaurant and we, as a group of four, were very satisfied with the quality and service level. The only blip preventing a five star rating was that when presented with the bill it was for twice the amount it should have been. An error at the till being to blame. We all agreed we would recommend to friends/colleagues.

    The food was not bad but not Spanish. The paella was rice with tomato and chicken. The waiter was very friendly, but I wouldn't repeat. I think the mistake is that it doesn't seem like the restaurant is run by a Spaniard. Among them they spoke Portuguese so good food but it has no Spanish essence

    The staff were lovely. The menu is Spanish but there seems to be something missing. Still, very good value for money and the food is good, just missing a bit of its charm.

    Service was fantastic but unfortunately the food let it down a bit. Maybe it’s just because I’ve eaten a lot of tapas in different regions but I felt it lacked flavour and authenticity.

    I had a lovely lunch here with 2 friends on Sunday. The waitress overheard that it was my friends birthday and she surprised her with a free slice of cake with a candle on top. It was lovely! The meal was great value for money too, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Spanish cuisine!

    First time here and won`t be the last. I`m not personally a huge fan of Spanish tapas but my wife loves it so...That said, I thought the food was fantastic. I had the meatballs and the chorizo and the patatas bravas. All excellent. The service was great and the server very knowledgeable and attentive. The price was also very reasonable at £50 for 2 with wine. Ideal location for the Playhouse too. Would 100% recommend.
