Great choice of tapas, in particular the home made Spanish tortilla. And a good choice of wines by the glass.

My husband and I by chance took refuge from torrential rain here, after seeing a midday show at Summerhall. So glad we did. Felt like authentic Spanish cuisine. Great chickpea stew and excellent tortilla espanola. Custard pie a tad lacklustre but the excellent coffee made...up for it. Call in, if you're nearby. Well worth it.More

Indaba Deli is a lovely and cozy place where you will find spanish products you can buy and also you can enjoy the lovely tapas such as Tortilla and empanadillas which are so tasty accompanied with good wine, while sitting in.When having homesick, I feel...welcome every time! Rosana is very friendly and knowledgeable about spanish food and wine and will advise you well when needed ! As a spaniard, I highly recommend this gem in the Meadows!More

We have paid several visits to Indaba for tapas, some food and drinks and each time it has surprised us with an improved quality in food and service. Now with the option we had of drinking nice good quality wine at a reasonable price with...tapas of deliciously cooked manchego omelette, tasty mushroom and blue cheese croquettes or empanadas’ (pies) with tuna and tomato, among other delicatessens, beats most of our previous visits to other Spanish restaurants in Edinburgh. We will definitely come back and will recommend to friends.More

Had a lovely meal last night with friends and the pistachio cheesecake was the lightest tastiest I have ever eaten. All the tapas were fab as well but had to mention the cheesecake. How do they make it so light? Fabby meal

This place is an absolute hidden gem. The food is so tasty and changes regularly. Rosanna The owner is lovely. She is very friendly and welcoming and it's clear she is very passionate about making good Spanish food. Her Spanish tortilla is amazing as well...as the empanadas which are delicious. Rosanna also does catering and provided lots of food for a friend of mine who was having a party. It all went down very very well and was popular with all of her guests. I cannot recommend this place enough to everyone I know. It is a great find.More

We stumbled upon this place while out for a walk. Decided to go in because we are big fans of Indaba. They had a great selection of Spanish produce, food and drink. The prices were really reasonable and the quality was very high. The woman...was very friendly and helpful too. It is a shame we had already had lunch otherwise we would have gotten sit in food as well as buying some stuff to take home. Much better than Goya 23!More

When I miss Spain this is the place where I go, great coffee, awesome croquetas and boquerones en vinagre like my mum's ones. The torrijas they made in Easter were the best I had for years! Thank you! If you want to try real Spanish...tapas, or get some things from Spain knowing they're good, this is the place. And Rosanna is always lovely!More

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
