  • Adam M.Great tacos. Reservation is a must though otherwise wait for a table across the street at bon vivant with a cocktail and they will come over when it's ready.

  • Anthony KBest Mexican in town. Bit of a British twist on some of them (lamb and mint). And the cocktails are overly expensive but you can bring drinks over from Bon vivant opposite.

  • James IFavourite restaurant in Edinburgh, really cool, great food. Bombers and guacamole are the best I've had. They don't take bookings so be prepared to wait in the pub over the road for a table.
