We could not have asked for anything better for our Christmas reunion 🎄🎅. There were four of us and we settled into a nice corner and to start with we ordered the house wine (white and rose), which were so delicious we ordered more! We ordered from the 5pm menu which was varied and suited all of us - £16.95 for 2 courses, which was well worth it - great value!
The waiters were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our starters and meals were a selection of the most amazing tastes of fish, pork, vegetables and sauces. Very well prepared and cooked food, all piping hot when they arrived.
My friends succumbed to desserts, with one stating that the salted caramel sauce with shortbread bites was "the best dessert she had ever tasted"!
We were more than happy with this restaurant and would have no hesitation in recommending it. The music and atmosphere were ideal. Location good, but would have travelled for the standard of food and service!
Please open a Cadiz in Glasgow!
Our go to restaurant when in Edinburgh. Superb food, service and value. South African wine - second cheapest on the wine list was very good too. Is there any space to open above Cafe Andaluz in Glasgow as I don't visit Edinburgh on a weekly basis.
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.
