Best Spanish Restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh



The selection of Spanish restaurants in Edinburgh showcases produce and cooking styles from all corners of Spain. Andalusia is well represented in a couple of small, family-run restaurants as well as in the larger chains, while produce and influences from Galicia, Castile, Valencia, Madrid are also in evidence. With some restaurants offering a more modern take on tapas and others opting for the menu and style of a traditional bodega, there’s lots to choose from. Glasgow-style tapas can run from rustic, gritty blood puddings to flamboyant creations in silky sauces, from high-end dining to a colourful lunch in an earthenware dish. The best restaurants in the city mix culture, creativity, fine ingredients and adventure with a good splash of Iberian charm.
