NEAR Five minutes to the Pleasance

Iggy Campos made his home in Edinburgh a long time ago, but his menu hints strongly at his Spanish roots. A typical starter might be the stew of baby squid, clams and mussels with garbanzo alioli while the mains might contain options such as the fillet of hake on crushed green-mustard potatoes, pan-fried crayfish tails, capers and saffron. Igg’s goes big on fish dishes but also makes the most of Scotland’s land-based goodies with dishes like the pan-roasted Highland venison with slow-braised oxtail, red cabbage and boozy prunes. While Iggs is aiming at the top end of the market, next door is his jolly Barioja tapas bar which is particularly good at catering to large dining parties. Iggy is a wine enthusiast and it shows on the list.
