Spanish
Tapa offers the tastes and flavours of Spanish cuisine to diners in the Leith area of Edinburgh. It is set up in a former warehouse on the cobbled street of 19 Shore Place, just moments from the Water of Leith and 15-20 minutes from the city centre by car, bus or taxi. The tastefully decorated interior brings back memories of Iberia, creating a warm and sociable atmosphere that accentuates the pleasure of eating at Tapa.

The restaurant’s menu consists of innovative and more varied Spanish Plates. Combining the best of what Scotland and Spain has to offer. Our drinks menu boasts a collection of premium wine and beer perfect for pairing with appetising lunch and dinner options – here, too, the vineyards of Spain dominate.

    I was early for my booking. However i was made very welcome and offered a drink until ny table became free. The service was prompt and non-intrusive, the food was excellent and what I couldn't eat I brought home. The menu seems fairly narrow but the execution is exemplary and the bread rolls are a little bit of bread heaven.

    Well received, comfortable table in the front part of the restaurant. Not at all noisy and good friendly service. One or two items on the menu had run out but we got a decent array of different dishes ( the Morcilla de burgos, and the Berenjenas con miel were very good ) and a good bottle of wine (Vermador). All reasonably priced.

    Great place, we chose Tapa because one of our party was gluten free. Plenty of choice on the menu. The service was spot on.

    Fantastic lunch. The Secreto (solomillo), nicely covered with a cosy blanket was delicious. The service and site are amazing, as always.

    A selection of classic tapa dishes beautifully presented with prompt, friendly but not intrusive service and an ambience as close to real Spain as you can possibly get without a three hour flight from Edinburgh. Almost like going on holiday,
