Description: Our newest and largest venture, Cafe Andaluz hopes to bring a little bit of Spain to George Street, Edinburgh. Sharing tapas is a great way to eat socially and we make our dishes fresh and as varied as possible. All our dishes are prepared using the best raw materials and are all prepared on the premises. Our wines are sourced solely from Spain and our Sangria is made from traditional recipes passed down through generations. Our staff will always be available to offer advice on menu choices and recommend some of their favourites.

We went here on a Tuesday night and managed to get in without a booking. We were greeted by a pleasant waitress who took out drinks orders after showing us to our seats. The restaurant has a Spanish/North African design to it, as you would expect, but is realy comfy and has a great atmosphere. The menu is quite extensive and has things to suit most tastes. As there were two of us we decided to order the dishes in groups of 3 so that we could share and managed to get through 2 full sets of lushness before being forced to surrender to our bulging bellies. The I had a pudding because I could. Can't fault the place at all, if you're in the George Street area of Edinburgh then this is well worth a try.

Very nice food and wine, chicken thighs obviously been marinated, very spicy patatas bravas and a well rounded, slightly oaky rjoja!

The offer of the day was 3 x tapas plus dessert for £14.95 but not wanting a sweet we picked off the a la carte menu.......adding up to £12.55 and despite having made this clear and then not being offered a pudding the food bill came to, yes, £14.95 - not that it's the amount involved but the principle behind an English accent not being there for any other reason than they're a tourist!!??

I wanted something different for my birthday and settled on Cafe Andaluz. We, my wife and I, had not been there before and were impressed by the size and decor when we walked in. The service and food did not disappoint either, the service was prompt and efficient without any rush, the portions were mor than adequate for sharing and were delicious. We would recommend Cafe Andaluz to anyone looking for somewhere different. We will be back!!!

The food here is great. A big selection of Tapas with decent portion sizes. Very busy at the weekends so advisable to book. Not a place for a quiet romantic meal, its really buzzing. Good service. the food is delicious,(and reasonably priced) can highly recommend the chorizo and andulucian black pudding mmmmm! The only critisism is the price of drinks £6.45 for a glass of mojito....think this is to cover the cost of the flight to havana to get the rum!
