Eating & Drinking Guide

The picturesque and colourful Victoria Street is home to the equally vibrant Mariachi. Sitting just up the hill from Edinburgh’s Grassmarket, it offers the perfect place to get the party started with space for 100 diners, a private party room for hire and an outdoor patio ideal for sipping Margaritas and other cocktails. The menu is a selection of the expected Tex-Mex favourites – nachos, burritos, tacos, fajitas and enchiladas – with a selection of fillings including chicken, shredded pork or beef. There’s also a large grill section with steaks and burgers, all served with a Mexican twist. Portions are very generous but look to the starters and salads for some lighter options including corn on the cob coated in chipotle mayo or the citrusy fresh king prawn salad with just a hint of chilli. Mariachi extends a warm welcome to everyone, making it a city centre hub for celebrations.
