We’ve dined here several times and we are always impressed with the quality of food. Tonight the anchovies, croquetas, biltong and chicken skewers were just outstanding (the other dishes we had were amazing too) We literally cannot stop talking about it! The service is second to none and the lovely small dining area creates just the right atmosphere. I hope it never changes, we just love it! Thank you Indaba

I love this place. It's just right in every way. Not too small, and not too big. Food is excellent with the right ambience. Not an obvious place to go to - a bit tucked away. But one not to miss if you are in Edinburgh.

Absolutely loved our night out at Indaba. Its a lovely environment, when we walked in we were immediately greeted cheerfully and then looked after very well. Food was delicious, and plentiful. Enjoyed the wine too. Will definitely come back, most likely with more friends.

I booked at 5pm fir a pre theatre show. So it was very quiet, hence the ambience was a little stark. However service was prompt, very informed and very pleasant. The tapas we shared were delicious. The garlic prawns done to perfection, the patatas bravas delicious in a spicy sauce. Lovely little restaurant.
