Where: 276 Canongate, Edinburgh EH8 8AA Scotland
Review: Great dinner of delicious tapas. Very small venue so I recommend you make reservations. We did the same day so that was easy. The service was friendly and excellent. Fun vibe with waitstaff in PIGG t-shirts and kilts. The assorted charcuterie board was wonderful. And an assortment of delish meats and cheeses.”

Review: “Visiting Edinburgh but staying in Leith, randomly went here on a Saturday night (lucky enough to get a last minute booking ) Tapas was lovely, and a very nice Rioja for a reasonable price. Friend I was with spent many years living in Valencia - and she rated the food - so high praise! Had an acoustic guitarist playing which was a lovely touch. Definitely recommend”
