About Topolabamba Edinburgh
Edinburgh’s new authentic Mexican Restaurant! We’re taking classic dishes and street food sourced from our extensive travels around the main regions of Mexico and introducing them to our home town! Ever tried cactus before? Or what about fish tacos?
Brilliant meal, will be back.
Great food with speedy service - love the street food idea. Plenty choice and variation in the chilli level. Great service from Andrew!
Food was very spicy (hot). There should be options to order a milder version of the dishes.
Great food. It was really slow to get our order taken when we first went in but then the food arrived very quickly. Would be great to have a bit more choice on the margaritas. Seemed to be lacking a non-fruity one on the rocks with a good tequila.
Very easy to book. Relaxed, social atmosphere. Extremely helpful and honest service, so we didn't order too much. What we did have was great for sharing. Drinks good value for West End. Margaritas fantastic. Easy to choose tasty vegetarian and fish options. Also not too spicy if you don't want heat.
Simply my fsvourite place in Town to enjoy food!
Wonderful atmosphere and fantastic food at reasonable prices.
Always look forward to our visits - fab food and frozen margaritas! Love the decor and music too.
Noisy, fast (but only in the beginning), food very processed not fresh, meal served in seconds then we were abandoned thirsty, margaritas were not good. Felt like a chain mentality and I’m not planning a return visit. Non authentic.
Staff, food and ambience absolutely great. We had the small plates which everyone dug into and had a great evening. The cost for food and wine was very reasonable. Probably my favourite Mexican in Edinburgh.
Only ordered 2 courses but was stuck in the restaurant for over an hour. Waitress basically ignored us for the whole visit, sat with dirty plates for our desserts for 40+ minutes. Drinks had run out long ago. Dishes didn't come out at the same time so partner had to eat his meal 10 mins before mine came. Ended up having to ask at the bar for our bill because the waitress ignored us. Food was ok, have been to Glasgow branch and their service was good. 100% would not come back to the Edinburgh branch, have never felt so neglected as guests in a restaurant.
Wonderful food. Order came very quickly. Friendly efficient staff. Will definately come back.
Great Service, staff were very attentive. No frozen drinks available, food was excellent. Will return again.
We had a fun evening. The cocktails were amazing as was the tapas food.
We were pestered continuously after our meal feeling like we were being rushed out the door, not near closing time and plenty of vacant tables to accommodate others!
Lovely food. Nice atmosphere. Did seem a bit rushed and small plates everywhere. Table wasn't big enough for 4 people with 3 dishes each to try as recommended. Could have done with more time between plates coming at us. But we ate it all and would go back.
Topolabamba - fun to say and fun to eat and drink there!
Service was sooo poor. The staff were lovely and friendly, but from the beginning service was poor. Drinks missing, food missing, took a long time to get seen to order food - and it wasn't even busy! Had to ask about missing food twice. One member of the table ordered prosecco and was told to "try it as it looks quite flat"... then why service it?! Then brought bill and charged for a bottle we didn't order... so disappointed. I've been previously when it's been much busier and had a great time! This was poor.
Disappointed with the selection of white wine.
Nothing to add
Fantastic evening again! Fab food & service.... Dave was the highlight of the night! I’ve left a review on TripAdvisor
The food was amazing as always. Tasty and very fresh. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. I love it here.
This was one if not the best meal we had while we were in the UK. Very impressed with the atmosphere and the food offering. Every item we ordered was outstanding. We will be having lunch with you again tomorrow based on a unanimous vote or our 4 family members. Wonderful restraurant concept and noticed all the details throughout the restaurant that created a truly unique dining experience.
Whilst the general dining experience was very good and staff were superb, we are always very disappointed to see Halal meat. If we weren't meeting others we would have walked back out. As it is not clear through current labelling whether an animal slaughtered by Halal methods was stunned prior to having its throat cut open, we will not be returning to your restaurant.
