La Mula Obstinada closed down a while ago after attempting to pick up from where Tapas Tree and ESI had tried previously.

I've been trying to phone this restaurant to book a table for about a week now but the phone just rings out. I'm trying to use a Groupon Voucher but have now read that it has closed down. I will be contacting Groupon tomorrow for a refund.

We have been trying to call this so called restaurant for days to book a reservation for an Itson voucher. Phone just rings and rings with no answer. Website also not working. What a joke!!!

Turned up with an itison voucher after booking by phone at the end of August to discover it has shut up shop. No signs or notice, although it still has it's big branded beer barrel outside the entrance if anyone wants it?

Didn't Visit. Like others on Trip Advisor, we bought the itison voucher deal in early June. Tried to make a booking to redeem this week but phone just rang out; also discovered the restaurant website server is 'down'. E-mail to itison confirmed La Mula is 'closed due to unforeseen circumstances'. Whether it will ever reopen is anybody's guess. Itison are... More

Nice setting. Welcoming staff. Good enough service. Reasonable priced wine, though with only a choice of one white and two red. Then there was the food. Overall, very average small portions with a couple of low points. Overcooked deep fried calamari, thin bean stew ( more like a sauce), minute portion of pork in mushroom sauce, (perhaps the mule's revenge... More

I cannot understand some of the vitriolic comments made about this restaurant. My wife and I have just returned from having an evening meal there, courtesy of an itison voucher, which we had purchased. We found the service to be excellent, the food, although not michelin starred, was perfectly edible and the red, house wine was very drinkable and reasonably... More

Never written a review before but i am that disgusted by this place i felt i had to sign up to Tripadvisor to warn others. Went to La Mula at the weekend with a couple of friends, the food in general was disgusting (apart from the potatoes, credit where credit is due, haha), however, bad food isn't where it ends!...

We live very nearby La Mula but had never been. It is a lovely venue but the food is really not up to scratch. We had chicken and chorizo scures which were heavily burnt yet still served to us. We also had the previously reviewed prawns, peppers and calamari. All of which were pretty dull. I could have microwaved better.... More

I'm only grateful that the waiter was very nice and friendly, and that we had paid for our lunch with an edinburgh's great deal. I'm sad to say that the food was in edible to the point of feeling actual pity. There was no choice of wine, the olives we had for starter were so garlicky they were quite revolting.... More
