Delicious quality seafood and great service
The deal of £15.95 for 3 courses was excellent value as there was a good choice of starters and mains. The pistachio cheesecake was also very tasty. I have been to the restaurant for the a la carte which is much more expensive but also totally worth it, but I would say that the service provided on the deal is exactly the same as when I have dined a la carte. Staff very friendly, helpful with the menu and accommodating, eg I wanted a vegetable side and give my brother the chips and they happily switched things around to suit us. The cocktails are a must-try - the Bloody Gin is a twist on the Bloody Mary and delicious.
Great food and better deal
I have been meaning to go hear for a while but haven't got round of it so was delighted when I could finally make it. I went here as part of the Dine out in Edinburgh deals being promoted by a number of different restaurants across Edinburgh. The restaurant is beautifully decorated although it was a bit cold, especially when the heat from neighbouring restaurant hits you when you go to the loo. As part of the £15.95 deal I have the king prawns (£3 supp) and the mussels both of which were very good! I am a big fan of seafood and the quality of the food here was very good. As a bonus on our deal we got a portion of praline cheesecake for pudding which was nice but probably wouldn't have again if I went back. All in all a 3 course meal for 2 people (we both had soft drinks) came to £39.95 so it was very well priced and I would definitely like to make it back sometime soon to try some other things on the menu.
Seafood restaurant in Edinburgh city centre
Opened in the summer of 2016, Cadiz is a cosmopolitan seafood restaurant on George Street in Edinburgh city centre. The menu takes much inspiration from the Mediterranean and the decor wouldn’t look out of place in a smart harbour restaurant in the South of France. Stripped stone and beach hut wooden walls mix comfortably with seafood-themed art and fashionably recycled storm lights. Both the cocktail and wine list reflect the menu’s emphasis on seafood.
Scottish seafood with Med flavours
With menus which feature Shetland mussels, West Coast langoustines, Mull scallops and prime Scottish beef steaks, Scotland’s natural larder is well represented at Cadiz. The restaurant aims to offer flavours from the Med and further afield but, as the name suggests, there is a definite lean towards Spanish flavours. For instance, the chicken liver pâté is infused with Oloroso sherry while a dish of grilled salmon is accompanied by a chickpea, chorizo and red pepper casserole.
From shellfish bisque to the whole lemon sole, seafood takes centre stage but the steaks, Iberico de Bellota ham and Spanish tortilla offer alternatives. A lunch/pre-theatre menu complements the a la carte.
City centre transport and attractions
Cadiz is a first floor restaurant above Cafe Andaluz on George Street. There is limited on-street parking. The tram line and the city’s major bus routes run along nearby Princes Street. Waverley is the nearest train station. Edinburgh’s main shopping streets and many of the city’s major attractions are, at most, a fifteen minute walk.
