More about La Sal, Edinburgh

Spanish cuisine is famous for sophisticated tapas made to be shared among close friends and family. Edinburgh’s La Sal has taken inspiration from this by creating a cosy and elegant space for guests to indulge in high quality Spanish tapas and an extensive wine list. Nestled on quiet Howden Street, the heart of the Old Town, La Sal has an array of dishes that will tantalise the senses. We recommend sampling the selección de vegetales de navarra (a platter of artichokes, asparagus and piquillo peppers), tortilla de berenjenas( a delicious cheese and aubergine omelette) or paying homage to both Spain and Scotland, the huevos rotos con morcilla de burgos(layers of potato, onion and peppers topped with egg and black pudding).

Walking distance from Arthur’s Seat and the National Museum in the UNESCO heritage listed Old Town, La Sal also caters for large groups and offers a set shared menu, perfect for sampling all they have to offer. With an enticing wine list on offer, this Edinburgh hideaway is a must-visit destination for foodies and Spanish lovers alike. Book now to secure your spot today!

Food fantastic as always. La Sal serves the best tapas in Edinburgh in our opinion. good service, lovely wine. Our only gripe was that the serving of jamon and manchego was very small for the price. That aside, we highly recommend it.

We had tapas which were delicious & food authentic. Star of the dishes was the garlic & chilli prawns. We had 4 tapas dishes which was ample for two ladies & left enough room for divine marsapone cheesecake & tart. Wine selection very good & staff very helpful. Definitely worth a visit & the 10min cab trip from st andrews square. Definitely recommend & look forward to another visit.

The service was friendly and efficient and more importantly the food was authentic Spanish and delicious. La Sal feels like eating in a family's home in Spain.
