El Cartel Roxburgh


Casera Mexicana at Roxburgh

Escape to the colourful streets of Mexico without leaving the enchanting Old Town at El Cartel Roxburgh.

Located just off the Royal Mile, this hidden gem beckons those seeking vibrant Mexican flavours and a lively atmosphere. Their tacos and antojitos are influenced by their favourite taquerias, cantinas and street side carts to bring you a real taste of Mexico, all served with an extensive range of tequila, mezcals, cocktails and their famous frozen margs.

Although Edinburgh is home to more than one El Cartel, Roxburgh is the best suited for all manner of parties and get-togethers. With an extended bar area, you can book for drinks only (but we bet you won’t be able to resist ordering some dishes to go with them). The open plan restaurant benefits from flexible seating throughout, as well as fantastic views over Waverley Bridge. Discover the hidden garden and sip on their Summer Especiales whilst enjoying the very best of the Scottish summer.
