Café Andaluz – Moroccan magic!
Just opened with a flourish and a touch of Moroccan magic, Café Andaluz is located at 10-11 George IV Bridge, Old Town, Edinburgh.
Featuring many bespoke features made in Morocco, the new venue also boasts a huge china bull as a central focal point.
Owned by Di Maggio’s Restaurant Group (DRG), Café Andaluz is situated just a short walk from Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile and close to the National Museum of Scotland. The new venue is spread over two floors with views of the castle.
Tony Conetta, DRG Director, said: “We were proud to open our fifth Café Andaluz restaurant and our second in Edinburgh. This is a great location in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
“We commissioned the creation of a china bull, which is a feature within the restaurant. The decorative lights, mirrors, carved benches and panels were made bespoke in Morocco for the restaurant. The decorative plates are a combination of Spanish and Moroccan and the wall tiles are all from Spain for an authentic look and feel.”
Cafe Andaluz offers an extensive A La Carte menu featuring a full range of vegetable, meat, fish and shellfish tapas dishes, plus freshly made paellas. Familiar options such as the Spanish tortilla and calamari line up alongside dishes such as king prawns in a saffron and coriander batter; baked aubergines and pork cheeks in a red wine sauce with shallots, thyme and garlic. Also on offer is a set menu, ‘Menu Especial’ available daily at published times.
Cafe Andaluz is also a great choice for large groups as tapas is made for sharing, so diners can book the ‘Menu Del Dia’ which provides a varied selection of tapas dishes preceded by a sharing plate of mixed cold cuts and other Spanish treats at a fixed price.
With a carefully selected wine list and a list of cocktails, old and new, there is something for everyone.
The venue is the second Café Andaluz in Edinburgh and part of a growing family of Spanish tapas restaurants that also encompasses Glasgow and Aberdeen.
