Visited while staying in Edinburgh but don’t think we would rush to go back. The cocktail was nice but thought the Chimmichanga chicken and cashew was very bland and the pecan pie was pretty tasteless as well and the pastry was too thick. Staff were...More

We've been coming here periodically for many years. We love its intimacy and quaintness. The food was good, not amazing. I had baked fish which was fresh and zesty. My wife's vegetarian flour tortilla a little rubbery. Pecan pie for dessert was average. What disappointment...More

This place is a great find, lovely authentic Mexican food rather than the usual chain type Mexican which a lot of people will be used to! The restaurant is a small, cosy and welcoming place. Staff are very friendly and the place has a generally...More

Very friendly service. Starter was dips with Nachos. A large number of nachos but became boring after a while. Mojitos were interesting. Red Wine came cold but the waiter sorted that out. I cannot remember what the main course was so it obviously was not...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
