Let's not mess around, our Chorizo is AWESOME, So we just Chargrill it & Dress with Aji- A Spicy, Roasted Yellow Pepper Sauce
(4) Large, Fresh Water Prawns. Char- Grilled in Their Shells. FYI: These prawns are in their shells, so, you do need to peel them, but- for us- there's nothing more evocative of being in Spain than eating fresh shellfish like this, so, as you're peeling them, try & imagine you're on a veranda, basking in the sun, overlooking a secluded bay…rather than, you know, in Leith!
Secreto comes from between the Shoulder Blade and the loin of the Iberian Black Pig & has an Incredible incredible, almost buttery texture to the meat when Griddled. To compliment this we adorn our Secreto with Romesco Sauce (an Almond and Red Pepper Sauce from Tarragona, Catalonia). Recomendamos / Our Recommendations
Fab place - try to eat there every time we’re in Edinburgh.
Excellent food, excellent service-the best in Edinburgh so far. Perfect and lovely staff. Sangria was the best Sangria I have ever had ( I tried many in Barcellona). Such a lovely place.
We returned after previous enjoyable visits and found that Tapa remiains a gret experience. Four of us ate well without over eating, while enjoying a variety of tapas. There was a buzz but the sound level was comfortable at all times, even for one of us with hearing difficulty. An all round great night out.
Birthday meal out with the family, I had visited the restaurant before and really enjoyed it, so decided to go back with my family. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the waiter was friendly and attentive.
Look forward to my next visit to Tapa.
Excellent meal and service! Would highly recommend and will return
average food. no hot water in gentelmans toilets bearing in mind we are in a pandemic .
Plenty of space and good Covid regulations in place.
The waiting staff were great with our toddler.
Great food, friendly service in a lovely restaurant.
The food was good. I had the squid and prawn croquettes (delicious) and the octupus (very tasty). My companion had the aubergine. The dishes are quite filling. Without a voucher I find it a bit pricey - so I would advise go if you have a voucher or if you are not price sensitive. Staff are fantastic!
Tapa Leith is a warm inviting place, even with Covid masks etc! My husband needed persuading as he wasn`t too sure about the menu, but he was the most enthusiastic of us all. There are so many wonderful menu items to try, loved the aubergine crisps, the chicken skewers are amazing, their pork dishes are to die for! It is pricey but the quality is so good you rally don`t mind. If you fancy a real treat book Tapa you will love it.
The good & service was excellent. Every dish we had was outstanding. Highly recommended
Tapa never let's you down. A taste of real Spain, albeit without the weather.
We had a lovely meal! The staff were friendly, service was quick, food was good and there was a man playing Spanish guitar which was fantastic and really made the evening a lovely experience. Would definitely recommend.
First class service from very friendly staff. Got a very warm welcome from both the owners. The food was excellent, very tasty and value for money. The ambiance was perfect, with a guitarist strumming out some very enjoyable and well known songs. I would definitely recommend Tapa to anyone who is looking for an authentic Spanish experience. Well done lads and thank you for another memorable night. We will be back soon.
Really good tapas. Olives and olive oil were highlights. Service friendly.
Best tapas in Edinburgh! Great food and attentive staff, set in a lovely restaurant
We loved this meal! Lovely staff in a good atmosphere, delicious dishes.
From walking in to the venue, we were treated very well by friendly staff. The food was delicious and well presented. The ambience was perfect. Really cannot fault anything.
Always great service and great food. It was great having the guitarist back.
Highly recommended for all around great dining experience!
An incredible experience, the freshest seafood ever, great selection of meats, great service, definitely will be back
We really enjoyed eating at Tapa after too long an absence. Food excellent, great service and ambiance.
Fantastic food in a superb atmosphere.
Staff were perfect, there when required but not hovering. An absolutely exceptional experience, this was the third time in a two month window and every trip has been top drawer.
The food was excellent, and there was a good selection for both myself and my wife.
If your near here I’d suggest going it was brilliant value the restaurant is lovely inside you can get dressed up or go casual dress and not feel out of place. Waiter was lovely mixed a special drink for me not on the menu, food is far too cheap and if I lived here this would be my local. Food looks stunning on the plate and is ALL fresh
Great setting and good selection of delicious food. The staff were very welcoming and the waitress that served us was amazing, she was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the dishes and drinks. To be honest she made our night. Will definitely be back!
Had a delicious lunch to Celia birthday. Couldn’t fault it!
Good food and wine in a central location in Leith.
Another excellent evening at Tapas. Great food & lovely staff
So glad to return to Tapa after lockdown. The food was as delicious as ever - old favourites on the menu along with fantastic new dishes. The service was great - attentive and friendly and making us feel welcome and relaxed. We love this place!
Tapa is a lovely place to go for food. The food is amazing and the service is great. Will definitley be back again.
Very covid compliant, the food was all delicious. Interesting wine list and friendly, helpful staff - thank you for a lovely evening!!
Nice restaurant, delicious food, good service & relaxing atmosphere
Wonderful food and service and such a lovely setting
Excellent tapas and very authentic and the best I have eaten outside Spain.
Not good value for money. Nice food but small portions. Would probably not return.
Excellent food extremely helpful staff would definitely recommend and hopefully can come back soon
Always enjoy eating here. The staff are very attentive and the food is always excellent. I particularly enjoyed the sea bass dish.
Amazing tapas and very friendly staff! We were lucky enough to go to Seville for our honeymoon 17 years ago, Tapa was up there with the best we've ever had 😊
Amazing food & service at Tapa… Will return definitely!
