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.

    Always great authentic Spanish tapas. Thursday evenings are a bargain for sure. Only thing missing last night was their superb guitarist. Perhaps he’s on holiday ? Service was excellent as always. We will be back!

    Great food and service. Nice to see good sherry list as aperitif choice and excellent measures too. It’s quite pricy but worth it

    We are both vegetarian. We felt that there was a decent selection of dishes for us and everything we ate tasted nice. Wine - my partner said the Sauvignon Blanc was good. Coffee - a nice espresso. Table service - pleasant and efficient. Ambience was nice - good for couples as it wasn't noisy. Location- one minute walk from the Shore in Leith. Not far from bus and tram - fairly frequent services. Car parking - I needed to use my car on this occasion and finding a space on a nearby street and walking to the restaurant, took a few extra minutes so I'd suggest factoring in an extra 10 to 15 minutes to find a space if driving.

    Always yummy food. Very nice staff. Apologised for our table not being ready and our food taking a while to show up. It being the 50% off night made it even better. One not to miss.
