Good authentic restaurant with very helpful staff who stayed open despite some of our party being delayed. Fajitas, enchiladas, refried beans, etc, all excellent.

If you have been to Venezuela and loved the food (which we have) and you are in Edinburgh (which we are) then you will love this place. Pictures don't do it justice

Food is wonderful. Think the (usually boring) Mexican which is everywhere and give it taste and character. And extremely good value. Staff was charming and attentative. Will certainly go back. One caveat: if you order a Margherita be sure you specify salted or sugared glasses....More

I've been here a few times and it never disappoints. Lovely South American food in a cosy setting. The food is lovely with some really interesting choices. Friendly South American staff too. A from favourite in Stockbridge.

We were recently in Edinburgh for a long weekend and were staying around the corner from the Sabor Criollo. I am usually suspicious of South American restaurants outside of South America. They are almost universally poor, but we decided to give it a try anyway....More

It was my husband's birthday and we found this nice little restaurant while on a trip to Edinburgh. Within 3 hours of dining at Sabor I experienced violent vomiting and felt very ill the following day. 24 hours later my husband had diarrhoea and vomiting...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement

They have a small menu and I don't recall even the mention of gluten.
