About El Quijote

Authentic Spanish cuisine, tasty tapas, fine wine and a warm rustic atmosphere come together to create El Quijote, one of Edinburgh's most popular dining establishments and a shining star in the city’s foodie scene. The chefs at this local hotspot utilise the very best meats and cheeses sourced directly from Spain, while making use of regional and seasonal produce whenever possible. Owned by a group of Spanish friends, the restaurant aims to recreate the feeling of a Spanish pub and serves dishes that aren’t commonly found in Edinburgh’s Spanish restaurants. Popular mains at this Tollcross restaurant include the caldereta de venado (venison stew), the bartolitos (king prawns rolled with bacon and cheese) and the choco frito (fried cuttlefish served with salad and lemon). Book your table in advance to get the most out of your dining experience at El Quijote on Brougham Street.

All of us (3) enjoyed 9 different tapas dishes. All the dishes were very tasty, including cheeses, cod, calamari, padron peppers chorizo and pork cheek stew. Service was very good. Would not hesitate to come here again.

A small, intimate Spanish restaurant, with friendly staff and an interesting menu. Good choice of dishes available in various portions. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the choices we made. The wine list was excellent and all from Spanish regions. Good value and most enjoyable.

Excellent food, excellent service. We have not enjoyed better salmorejo outside of Seville (where some of the staff are from), Sancho (ratatouille with chorizo and egg) delightfully seasoned, the calamari was tender, and the tarta de Santiago with cafe con leche was a perfect finish. We will probably come back before we leave Edinburgh, and hope El Quijote will be here when we next return.
