About Tapa

Specialising in high quality Spanish cuisine, Edinburgh’s Tapa is a food-lover's haven, and well worth a visit if you have a penchant for tasty plates of tapas and big glasses of delicious Spanish wine. The team here are a passionate bunch and go to great lengths to ensure everything is sourced from the best local and Spanish suppliers. Meaning, you can expect to find organic and free-range Iberian meat alongside vegetables from Scottish suppliers, for example. Located in a converted warehouse on Shore Place in Leith – a stone’s throw from the Shore and Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre – Tapa is one of the best when it comes to Spanish fare, and as a result bookings are essential.

More about Tapa, Edinburgh

As we mentioned, Edinburgh’s Tapa is set within a converted warehouse which features white-washed walls, high vaulted ceilings and flashes of colour reminiscent of its Mediterranean heritage. Honestly, from the moment you step`inside this Leith restaurant you will be reminded of an old-school Spanish bodega. Also boasting two individually-styled dining rooms, Tapa is perfect for intimate meals for two as well as larger group celebrations. Now, as for the menu…

To begin, we suggest that you pay Tapa a visit with guests who you’re happy to share with. It is tapas after all! Kick things off with the signature beetroot gazpacho and the jamon y queso platter loaded with Spanish ham and cheese. The menu is then broken down into meadow, sea and land, and we advise getting stuck into each and every one of them. Some of our favourites include the sea bass ceviche flavoured with citrus and aji, topped with mango and pomegranate; the slow-cooked, red wine-infused chorizo and the pan-seared peppers topped with sea salt. If you’re anything like us, by now you’ll be positively ravenous at the thought of dining at Edinburgh’s Tapa. So, head to Shore Place in Leith and find out what the fuss is all about – you won’t be disappointed.
