Rafael's Bistro

Based in Edinburgh's Stockbridge, we have been serving fine Spanish cuisine with a modern twist for almost 15 years. Come join us and enjoy the flavours of Andalucia in the heart of Scotland!
Having worked in some of the most prestigious Scottish hotels and restaurants, Rafael established his own business in 2001, combining his passion for the flavours, spices and delicacies of his Andalucian homeland with his decades of culinary experience.
The result is possibly the most welcoming restaurant in Edinburgh, offering the ambience of España in the refined surroundings of Stockbridge.
