This place is a great find, lovely authentic Mexican food rather than the usual chain type Mexican which a lot of people will be used to! The restaurant is a small, cosy and welcoming place. Staff are very friendly and the place has a generally...More

Lovely quirky restaurant with good quality food that manages to survive on being open just a couple of days/week. I had Chicken Fajitas which I’d normally expect to come sizzling on a separate platter but they came on the plate with some very small wraps,...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
