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!

Best Spanish food restaurant in Edinburgh. The service is outstanding. The quality of the products, the variety of the menu (including a fine selection of wine) make of this place the best in town!

Just had a great meal at La Sal. Food was beautiful, probably some of the best tapas I've had in the UK. We were treated so well, the waiter (? owner) was brilliant with us and the kids. It was my son's eighth birthday and even though we weren't making a big deal of it, the staff heard us toasting him and brought out cake and ice cream complete with candles and a happy birthday song. It made his night. I really can't recommend this place enough for good Spanish food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Fantastic authentic tapas, generous portions and friendly owners. Cava was a real hit, along with the lovely house red! Just what we needed on a rainy cold Edinburgh night!

Brilliant evening, staff welcoming and friendly, extremely knowledgeable about food on offer. If it's your first visit to La Sal the waiters will guide you through choices and amounts of food. Would defiantly recommend La Sal for it's food and ambience we had a very relaxed evening.

My husband and I think La Sal is our favourite restaurant. It's intimate, friendly & provides excellent food. So, if you want a romantic meal out, you can't do better than La Sal.

Slightly off the beaten track in Edinburgh, but well worth a taxi ride. We made a reservation for my fiancée’s birthday. The tapas is rustic, and of high quality. We had a selection of meat, fish and vegetable dishes, and all were excellent! A bottle of Rioja, and a couple of traditional Spanish desserts (one served with a birthday candle) rounded off the evening nicely. The staff were excellent and obviously take pride in their food. If you enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine, you won’t go wrong here!

If it was not for the Fringe Alba FLamenca having a show I would never have found you, Lasal. Fantastic non stop show well done to all. Great authentic Tapas restaurant. I found you on Google booked a table you confirmed by Email and reminded me on the day by email. I will be back fantastic service, great food and not enough time to try all dishes. I will spread the word you are tucked away in Howden Street have great character and loyal customers well done to your team

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.
