“busy little place”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We came across this place by accident while walking around trying to find somewhere to eat. We were really lucky to get a table as most of them were reserved. The place could of been filled about 3 times over with the amount of people they had to turn away because there wasn't any tables available. We had nachos to start which came with all the trimmings and steak fajitas for main. The food is really scrummy and staff are great. Nice little place but probably best to book first.

“Fantastic Food full of flavour.”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were glad we kept walking almost the full length of Rose street and found this cracking restaurant, and as i like mexican food we thought we would give it a go and theLunch menu looked good. This place may be small but i think is better than the bigger chains as the food was obviously homemade. We had a starter of mixed dips and tortilla chips and the dips were delicious. I had the Carne Enchilada which was great and full of flavour and with a nice nip to it, my wife had Borrego Con Miel which she said was great and i can confirm as i had a taste of it, and to finish off well it had to be Churros with chocolate dip YUUUM. We would definitly come back my mouth is watering thinking about it, its a pity we are not local but heres to the next time!

“Best Mexican in Edinburgh”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

Came here because of TripAdvisor and was very impressed. Its small so booking essential. I really enjoyed the variety of the menu, the quality of food, the staff, the ambience. They have a specials menu as well and a choice of three types of fish. Its miles ahead of the other Mexicans in Edinburgh.

“Authentic and delicious”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We came across Miro's Cantina as we walked along Rose Street and decided on impulse to give it a try. Initially we were a little concerned upon walking in as we were the only customers; however we were given a warm welcome and soon had drinks and menus - as it happened the restaurant got much busier later on, we must have been ahead of the rush!

We ordered nachos to start with; the staff advising us that a small plate would be sufficient for both of us to share (refreshing not to have people upselling or offering us extras!) - and it was. Portions for the main course were ample as well; my spicy chicken fajitas were delicious and served with fresh tortillas and plenty of fillings.

Our one issue was perhaps our own fault - my girlfriends chilli con carne enchiladas were very spicy (to our tastes) which perhaps we should have expected but it would have been nice to state this on the menu (or perhaps to offer dishes made a little milder on request); however that isn't to take anything away from the quality of the food which was amazing yet the price was excellent value.

From start to finish the service, atmosphere and food were fantastic.
