Tapa Edinburgh

Whether it’s the blast of warmth that welcomes you as you step off the plane, the guitarist in that bustling side street bar you chanced upon or the very last meal of your trip, we wanted to create an atmosphere in Tapa that was evocative of our most vibrant memories of Spain!

From Michelin starred restaurants in Madrid to roadside cafes in Sanlúcar de Barrameda we celebrate the incredibly diverse range of ingredients and stunning dishes that we’ve experienced on our travels through Spain by placing an emphasis on small, artisanal Spanish producers and ingredients almost impossible to source out with Spain.

This is our experience of Spain and we look forward to sharing it with you very soon!

Love Dan, Greig & the Tapa Team

Tapa Edinburgh 82


Tapa is inspired by our lifetime love and appreciation of Spain and Leith, our home, has centuries old Spanish connections. The Port of Edinburgh Salamander Street in Leith is a stone’s throw from Shore Place and once housed the spectacular Edinburgh & Leith Glassworks.

Leith’s growing whisky industry combined with the alcohol that flooded into the port in the 18th and 19th centuries, meant that it was bottles made in Leith that the casks of sweet Spanish Sherry were destined for! Indeed, our first ever flat in Edinburgh was just round the corner from Salamander Street on Cadiz Street, so, when it came to choosing a home for Tapa, it had to be Leith!

From the high vaulted, white washed walls & flashes of red to the seductive rhythm of Spanish guitar & redolent aromas of garlic toasting, we want you to close your eyes and be in Spain!
