Had a fantastic first visit here. Felt very welcome on arriving and the service throughout our time at Tapa was excellent. The food was absolutely delicious. I particularly enjoyed the Ceviche Sea Bass which was light and refreshing with the citrus and fruit toppings. The...More

If you like variety, quaint atmosphere and good portions, this place was amazing. We went there with 16 and for $40 per person had so much variety, wine, and dessert. Delicious!

We have been visiting taps regularly for several years now. The £30 Rioja deal with choice of 4 tapas is excellent. The wine is always sooo tasty. Cosy relaxed welcoming atmosphere and surroundings. In short our favourite place to eat on the shore.

No matter where you are in Spain, a moments walk from the main tourist traps will almost always immerse you in the hustle and bustle of real Spanish life- busy bars and restaurants full of animated discussions conducted over fresh, homemade food. With this in mind, we selected our home of 19 Shore Place as the perfect venue to recreate this wonderful ambiance in Edinburgh.
