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.

La Carta de Bebidas

If you can't already tell, we love everything to do with Spain! From the Chorizo we source from a small family producer in Getaria to the super unique En Rama Manzanilla from Sanlúcar de Barrameda, if it's Spanish we're absolutely there! However, we get that- to the uninitiated- that that might be overwhelming, so, whilst our Drinks Menu is packed full of real treats for those that want to take a deep dive, we totally understand that that might not be for everyone, so, we thought we'd start our Drinks Menu with a wee shortcut to some of our absolute favourites! As with the Tapas Menu, if at any point you need a hand, please don't hesitate to ask, we're always more than happy to chat about our drinks!

        Vino de la Casa / House Wine!

        Why should our House Wine be the cheapest plonk we can find, we asked ourselves?! We've worked closely with the Navajas family of Navarette in La Rioja Alta & the Eguizábal family of Bodegas Franco-Españolas in Logroño for over 12 years now and- not only- do we trust their winemaking skills implicitly, but, these three wines are excellent examples of what a Rioja should be, that also out perform their price point dramatically!

                  The online booking did not mention we had to have the table back by a certain time, and we were very rushed by the end when they gave 10 minutes notice. We had to sit outside to allow for dessert and finishing our drinks.

                  Tasty food - with reassurance of a gluten free meal - great stuff ! The musician playing Spanish guitar created a really nice ambience .

                  Tasty food in an informal setting at a reasonable price. I would return.

                  We live in Spain and the Tapas were very authentic. Selection was great and cooked perfectly

                  Our first lunch out since becoming puppy parents - just a fabulous meal. We maybe pushed the boat out, but it was worth every penny. Highlights are the Bellota ham, the wee hotdogs, the presa and the churros. Thanks to Dan and equipe for looking after us so very well.

                  Amazing evening at Tapa last night - our waiter was so friendly and helpful, the food was perfect and so delicious, and there was a man playing a guitar which made it extra special. 10/10 thank you!! Will definitely be back.

                  Disappointed with our visit this time. Not been for a while but won't rush back. Food was tepid and service wasn't great - dirty plates & glasses left on table when fresh stuff was delivered, salad arrived with walnuts despite being assured it would be altered to deal with nut allergy.

                  The food is outstanding and the staff are so lovely. It’s quite noisy but I can put up with that in order to enjoy food like that. Mouthwatering. The wine is lush too. Still my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh.
