Absolutely fabulous experience. We eat out in Edinburgh a lot and this is one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in a long time. The tapas was tremendous, a special shout out to the black pudding and goats cheese dish, the best I have ever tasted. The sangria was delightful and the staff were so nice and friendly. I have nothing to say about what needs improved, says it all really, first class 10/10.

First visit to this restaurant and we were delighted with the ambiance in the restaurant which was small and very busy great atmosphere, even better food, would recommend the meat croquetas with black pudding, the chick pea tangine which was a special. Friendly and helpful staff.

Tapas 3 was a fantastic treat for me and my 14 year old daughter. Lots of choice and everything arrived quickly and was delicious. Staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. It was a little out of the way but well worth the walk for somewhere busy but not over-crowded and reasonably priced
