Café Andaluz opens in Stockbridge as it celebrates 21st birthday


Café Andaluz has opened its third venue in Edinburgh, and its seventh across the UK, with the launch of Café Andaluz Stockbridge. The Raeburn Place restaurant arrives as the brand celebrates its 21st birthday this year. It first opened its doors on Creswell Lane in the West End of Glasgow in 2002.

The new 120-cover restaurant will remain rooted the brand’s signature Spanish style, with a light and bright interior, and will serve up an Iberian-inspired tapas menu from breakfast through to late in the evening.

Area manager Ailsa Reid, who has worked with Café Andaluz for 15 years, said, “Stockbridge is a vibrant area with a fantastic culinary scene, and we couldn’t think of anywhere better to open our third venue in Edinburgh. We know Andaluz’s Spanish flair will be a welcome addition to delight diners and families for years to come.

“Right from day one with our first venue on Cresswell Lane, we have set out to create restaurants that are part of the fabric of the neighbourhoods that surround them, with generations of families returning time and time again. We’re excited about bringing that same magic to Stockbridge.”

She added, “We opened Café Andaluz in Glasgow in 2002 to create a fun, family-friendly restaurant inspired by the best Spanish cuisine that ignites memories of holidays and dining overseas for so many Scots. Just six years later we arrived in Edinburgh, and this latest opening will bring the stable to seven locations across the country – including our first English venue in Newcastle.

“We never dreamed it would be so popular when we started, and to have now served more than seven million people is truly incredible. Cafe Andaluz strikes a chord with the public, and we hope its enduring appeal – fun, accessible dining rooted in Spanish culture – will continue for decades to come.”

Founded in 1985 with Glasgow institution Di Maggio’s, the DRG now serves more than 26 million diners every year at restaurants including Café Andaluz and Amarone, as well as Anchor Line, Atlantic, The Citizen, and Cadiz.  The group opened Barolo 15 years ago, taking over from Glasgow Italian institution L-Ariosto.
