It's not quite the south of Spain, but it's the closest thing to it. In fact, this is where Scotland and Spain meet.
Cafe Andaluz brings Andalusian culture right to the heart of Scotland, with the authentic and sophisticated tapas bringing customers back for more every time.
The famed Spanish cuisine comes to life at Cafe Andaluz, with all sorts of delicious smells and vibrant colours coming together to create a thoroughly memorable experience, not to mention a scrumptious meal on top of it all.
Whether it's just a light snack or a full-blown occasion for all the family, this stylish restaurant caters for all.
Hungry customers can begin the evening with the renowned Platos Para Compartir, or sharing plates, with the likes of Serrano ham, Iberico chorizo, Spanish tortilla and manchego cheese all on the menu.
A more substantial tapa may be the fish or chicken and pork paellas, but with meat tapas such as croquetas and albondigas available, you are undoubtedly spoiled for choice. Mouth-watering vegetable tapas is also on offer, and with the acompanamientos, or sides, of flavoursome bread, crispy fries or succulent olives, there's simply no end to what you can pick and choose from.
And when better to arrive than in December, where the Menu de Navidad represents the perfect Christmas meal for all to enjoy, creating one giant festive fiesta that will make you feel like you are floating through life in the south of Spain.
With five restaurants located throughout Scotland, there is simply no excuse not to get out and try this amazing delicacy.
Glasgow City Centre and famed West End play host to one each, with one restaurant in Edinburgh Old Town and one in the New Town, while Aberdeen City Centre completes the list.
Make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment, you aren't the only one who will be keen to tuck into some tasty Spanish cuisine!
