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.

    Great, food service and ambience. Incredibly good value as well - they had an offer on food of which we were unaware but they automatically deducted from our bill. The stand-out dish of the evening for us was the Brûlée de Queso de Cabra. We actually decided have it as dessert because of the accompanying caremalised Muscovado sugar and peach alioli. It was a gamble that paid-off because it was sublime, and a perfect end to an outstanding dining experience.

    Nice restaurant and good food. Wouldn't class it as authentic Spanish tapas, more 'poshed up' to cater for a British market. But perfectly enjoyable. Food tasty and good quality. Waiting staff were pleasant enough but not particularly personable. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy and we weren't in a rush. Would come again but there are better restaurants in the area.

    We visited our favourite Spanish restaurant for the first time with our new dog and couldn’t have been happier. We were sat outside in lovely weather. The service was great as was the food, the only downside being the unavailability of a coupe of dishes. We had a lovely time and we will definitely be back with a better behaved Jasper!

    Lovely lunch. We had an indoor table booked but since the sun was shining we asked to sit outside. Only downside to that is the small tables are not great for 4 people tapas style dining! Still enjoyed as always.
