Like this place, smashing food and friendly staff, some of whom are Spanish! Fairly laid back, and you can always order more dishes if you want!

I had the best meal at Tapa for my birthday last week. The food was lovely. So fresh and tasty! I always try new things when I'm there and anything on the menu I have a question about the staff are more than happy to explain/recommend. Tapa is absolutely my favourite place to eat and would recommend it without a... More

I would normally say nothing rather than leave a bad review. Perhaps my expectations had been raised because my Husband had eat here a few years before. He told me the flavours were lovely the quality was great. We were sat at a small table that I had to rest my feet on as it kept wobbling. The menu was... More

We visited Tapa on Saturday afternoon, meeting up with family before going on to a group activity. We like to introduce people to Tapa as we enjoy it ourselves so much. Everyone enjoyed it enormously! The food was excellent as usual, and the rioja fantastic! We will be going back soon.

The food at Tapa is always good and great for groups and the staff are welcoming and very knowledgeable. They do a couple of great deals and there's a loyalty scheme. It's always worth a visit.

Whilst not in the centre of Edinburgh it is worth the short taxi ride to Tapa Leith. Set in the up and coming Leith area the restaurant itself is very well presented and has a very authentic feel but is more spacious. We started with homemade bread, beetroot hummus, great tasting extra virgin olive oil and the best pesto we... More

I went for lunch with friends on Saturday and got the £25 meal deal. Great value for money and lots of delicious food. I'll definitely be recommending to friends!

We have been visiting Tapa since it opened and the food has always been great. Over the years we have noticed that the prices have increased while the portion sizes and range of dishes have reduced. I was especially disappointed at our recent visit that their amazing tortilla is no longer on offer. It is lively at weekends, often with... More

We visited with friends and young children. There were toys and colouring books to keep them amused when not eating. The food was delicious and they have a comprehensive dairy free and gluten free menu.

No matter where you are in Spain, a moments walk from the main tourist traps will almost always immerse you in the hustle and bustle of real Spanish life- busy bars and restaurants full of animated discussions conducted over fresh, homemade food. With this in mind, we selected our home of 19 Shore Place as the perfect venue to recreate this wonderful ambiance in Edinburgh.
