Travellers' Choice
Our newest and largest venture, Cafe Andaluz hopes to bring a little bit of Spain to George Street, Edinburgh. Sharing tapas is a great way to eat socially and we make our dishes fresh and as varied as possible. All our dishes are prepared using the best raw materials and are all prepared on the premises. Our wines are sourced solely from Spain and our Sangria is made from traditional recipes passed down through generations. Our staff will always be available to offer advice on menu choices and recommend some of their favourites.

This was our first visit to cafe Andaluz but won’t be our last. Having previously lived in Spain we were really impressed with the authenticity of the tapas as well as the range on offer. We chose 6 to share all of which were excellent....Staff were very friendly and efficient.More

Great food and lovely service, I really can’t fault it that part. However out of all of the restaurants I’ve visited since the new Covid restrictions, this is the one I felt most unsafe in. Sadly we went on a Saturday night which was fully...booked, tables not physically distanced well enough, so noisy, large tables of drunk people screaming and falling over (and I really doubt were from the same 2 households), people not wearing masks when moving around. It’s just such a shame for what used to be a favourite of mine but I’m unsure if I’ll be back soon.More

Once inside this restaurant , you realise it is surprisingly large and oviously popular. Hostess and servers were all very friendly and efficient. Food was of a high standard. Tables , floors , toilets, in fact everywhere, felt and looked well cleaned. All current restrictions...were adhered to. Advisable in these times to book in advance as chances of being able to walk in are slim.More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
