The service was wonderful, and the decor is quite pleasant. However, the food was disappointing. As a starter we had the nachos, and they were not bad, but they needed more of the salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. Refried beans lurked at the bottom, underneath everything else . . . very strange. Overall, we've had better nachos. The mains were... More

Family visiting from far away so a fairly special occasion and in search of a regular good quality Mexican in Edinburgh as indicated by the reviews. Table not available till 9.00pm (Saturday 20 May) but we thought it would be OK. Brought a steak dish when my sister ordered chicken. She didn't complain but should have. Generally, surly service. Got... More

Love love loved this place. Was there in March with my husband who was in a wheelchair and my nephew for an early lunch. We found it difficult to find somewhere wheelchair accessible and gluten free for lunch. I stuck my head round the door of this place and what a surprise. The staff were fantastic. Two lovely Spanish girls... More

This is a small Mexican restaurant with just a few tables so book in advance. We had the best and tastiest Mexican food we ever had. The portions are generous. We had two large plates of nachos to start which were loaded with all the usual toppings. A few of us ordered fajitas which were sizzling with the steak still... More

We ate here on a Monday night last week, it is a very small restaurant and the tables are quite close together and when the door opens a breeze blows through the building. The service was a bit slow, maybe they are not geared up for the summer yet. The food was good nice flavours and good portions, I enjoyed... More

Really disappointed with the quality of the food. Bland and tasteless. Very surprised at the glowing reviews this place has received on TripAdvisor. The food certainly looked like Mexican food but the taste was completely off the mark. Stay clear.

We ate here the other night. We love Mexican and were so excited for the meal. The restaurant is popular and I would recommend booking; we saw a number of people turned away. Service in this place is not speedy. Staff appear very rushed, and it is really hard to get anyone's attention. When we were finally able to order... More

This is a tiny restaurant that serves first class Mexican food at reasonable prices. Inside it is a little cramped, but the ambience is really good. Hard to fault. We phoned to book in the late afternoon...walk-in may be ok, but it is busy because it is good.

Being a Fajita lover, and to be honest a petty huge fan of Mexican in general, my partner and I decided to visit Miro's Cantina last night as it was the highest rated Mexican on TripAdvisor. However, I'm sad to say that despite being hugely optimistic it definitely was not one of the better Mexican's I've been to. First of... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
