I was dubious when I first heard Andaluz was going to be a Tapas restaurant as Edinburgh, in my opinion, has failed to produce a Tapas restaurant of a good standard so far. However, Café Andaluz is conveniently situated opposite my work and since it opened two weeks ago I have been itching to give my new local a try.

Cafe Andaluz is quite deceiving – from the outside the restaurant looks small and cafe like but I was shocked as to how big and spacious it was inside. I loved the décor –bright and funky colours and each table has its own separate booth with plenty of space for you and your dining partner/s.

Service was fantastic – friendly, very efficient and very knowledgeable in regards to the food menu.

The food and prices, unfortunately, were a little bit of a let-down. When we first looked at the menu it was very appealing and there is certainly lots of choice for both meat lovers and vegetarians. My friend and I went for four tapas dishes (approx £5 each). When they arrived the dishes were nice (if a little tasteless) but quite small – I was left feeling quite hungry afterwards. The bill came to £15 each (with small glass of wine each and tip) - perhaps a little on the expensive side.

Overall, Café Andaluz is a very welcome addition to the Tapas scene in Edinburgh. I would return but I wouldn’t recommend to those who are after a really big feed!

3.5 from irishphat (61%) on July 24th, 2008 (9 years ago)

Just had lunch here with 2 others. Rang ahead - nice cosy cushioned seats down the back (didn't fancy the tables in the front at all). Nice quality menus and fittings. Clearly they've looked into getting decent kit for the joint.

Ordered soft drinks and 3 dishes each along with plenty of bread. Lamb meatballs (spicy), creamy mushrooms, beef and rocket with parmesan, king prawns (my fave) and lots of other bits and pieces. I thought it was very tasty and straightforward. Very simple (isn't that the whole point with tapas).

My favourite was the mussels and close second being the beef and rocket. Whole thing for 3 with soft drinks and tip (meagre - we didn't have the same person for two parts of the meal - felt a bit impersonal, service was fine but forgettable) cost £50 on the nose.

We had plenty of grub, I thought the dishes were fine in size - could possibly had a lidish extra each.I'd go again certainly as it's a great option on George st.

Ps - there's some sort of counter in the front that looks vaguely like a coffee shop bit. This needs further exploration on my next trip.

For now 3.5 but I may revisit and revise my grading on this so far pleasant joint.

I was pleasantly surprised with Cafe Andaluz when I visited on a busy tuesday night. While yes, the portions are a bit on the small side, generally the cooking was up to scratch. We ordered 6 plates of which one was really bad (DIRE Patatas Bravas), 2 acceptable and three really rather nice. Scallops are probably a risky choice in a restaurant like this, but they were actually terrific: two fat, fresh perfectly cooked specimins with creamed leeks and crispy proscuitto - delicious value for under a fiver. Other standouts were goats cheese with orange glaze and black pudding with apple and onion chutney. Less good was marinated chicken with a yoghurt dip which was completely inconsequential and cynically portioned and priced at around a fiver. Prawns with chilli and garlic butter were a tad over-cooked and probably frozen - the butter bland. Desserts did their job just fine, but lacked any flair.

OK, so big chain tapas joints are never going to be anything special, but this was certainly better than some Ive tried (I'm looking at you La Tasca). £50 for two for plenty of food, a bottle of house wine (WAY overpriced red vinigared grape water at £15) and coffee isn't too harsh I guess. Its not authentically Spanish AT ALL- there were just as many asian and Italian dishes as there were Spanish and the decor is more Bedouin than anything else, but its none the worse for it.

Worth a look, especially for the Scallops.

Had dinner here 2 nights ago for a friend's birthday and it was not as good as I expected. The portions are small, even for tapas, although the taste was good on most of the dishes. Service was pretty good. I think it's somewhat overpriced for the quantity of food, but wouldn't hesitate to go back for a coffee in the front section as the decor is nice.

Went here for lunch today. We had an amazing experience. Food was fantastic, I've never had such wonderful mussels! Loads to eat and a couple of drinks each and the bill was cheaper than we anticipated. A lovely atmosphere and great service. We will definitely be back!

I went here shortly after it opened on a deal with 5pm - I think it was £15 per head for a glass of sangria, three choices of tapas each and a dessert. We could choose one veg, one fish and one meat dish each so had a good selection between four of us. I though pretty much each dish was fantastic - particularly the baby octopus and the beef carpaccio with wasabi. It was a while ago so I can't remember every dish but these were two stand outs! We were all stuffed after that but still wanted to squeeze in a dessert. I had a truly enormous creme brulee which was delicious (but cold, am I the only one that prefers it warm?!) and then a coffee with amaretto. We all then rolled down the road very full and very happy. The service was also great and there was a good atmosphere. Would definitely go again.
