Situated in a refurbished warehouse building, Tapa’s interior incorporates traditional Spanish colours with a classic ‘Bodega’ feel of stonework and natural furnishings. The restaurant is on Shore Place in the northern part of Edinburgh and is a welcoming venue with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Tapa is wheelchair accessible and can cater for gluten-free and vegetarian diets.

Authentic Andalusian & Spanish fare

The head chef at Tapa is from Seville and passionate about Spanish and Andalusian food and the freshness and authenticity of ingredients used in the kitchen. Some popular tapas dishes at the restaurant include the homemade oxtail croquettes (buñuelos de rabo del toro); the battered hake fillet with a pea & garlic salsa (fritura de merluza); and their aubergine crisps drizzled with honey (berenjenas con miel).

Other traditional favourites often on the menu are the slow cooked beef & pork meatballs (albondigas a la jardinera); the Spanish potato & onion omelette with spinach & melted Manchego cheese (tortilla con espinacas); and chorizo sausage girdled with homemade tomato salsa (chorizo a la plancha).
