Authentic Spanish cuisine, tasty tapas, fine wine and a warm rustic atmosphere come together to create El Quijote, one of Edinburgh's most popular dining establishments and a shining star in the city’s foodie scene. The chefs at this local hotspot utilise the very best meats and cheeses sourced directly from Spain, while making use of regional and seasonal produce whenever possible. Owned by a group of Spanish friends, the restaurant aims to recreate the feeling of a Spanish pub and serves dishes that aren’t commonly found in Edinburgh’s Spanish restaurants. Popular mains at this Tollcross restaurant include the caldereta de venado (venison stew), the bartolitos (king prawns rolled with bacon and cheese) and the choco frito (fried cuttlefish served with salad and lemon). Book your table in advance to get the most out of your dining experience at El Quijote on Brougham Street.
Delicious food, very friendly and helpful staff and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. Very busy pre-theatre. Had tapas but Looking forward to going back to sample some of the main menu dishes.
Had an excellent meal. We asked the waiter to bring a selection of food of his choice for the 6 of us to share and he did us proud. Every selection was great especially the pork cheeks. Will definitely be back.
Very tasty food and efficient, friendly service. We had a selection of tapas with the patatas bravas and the chorizo apuljarra being particularly good. Keep up the good work.
