Myself and my boyfriend visited for the first time and we were blown away by the quality and creativeness of the food on offer. Service was also first class and the atmosphere was great .... the building is stunning and stylish. We will definitely be going back!

    We had the squid, sesame crab and prawn, goats cheese and oxtail dishes and all were lovely. Really good value with the 40% off january offer. Nice cocktails too, and friendly staff.

    The food was excellent, as was the service.
    My particular favourite was the oxtail, but the salmon, chicken, aranchini...all fabulous.
    Perfect level of attention from the staff, who were also very knowledgeable. A must visit

    Tasty food. However felt quite rushed during main course. All dishes brought out very quickly and mostly together(not all as hot as should be, so am guessing some dishes pre-prepared). Would prefer to have been advised to order fewer dishes and then order more throughout the meal if needed.
    Felt a real pressure to clear the plates to make room on table.
    The food was very different and all delicious.
    Wine list good.
    We were brought dessert list and asked for our orders immediately. We had to ask for a short break between courses to try and slow everything down.
    Nice ambience excellent food, attention to service requires a little work.

    Lovely cocktails and food!

    Would have been 5 stars other than the large noisy party of mums as we arrived but understand they need to have fun too!

    This is the best restaurant i've been to leeds- we've been back 3 times in the last month or 2! The menu is innovative with so many different and unique small plates to try and the staff have been so lovely each time we've gone back recognizing us so we feel really valued and wanted to go back again! The menu has changed since we first went which is great to keep up the variety and excitement however we missed the orzo courgetti dish and cod from our first visit! The atmosphere is great and it really is all about the food and experience and the attentiveness of the guys working there just made it all the better. The speakeasy down below is amazing below as well to end the night.

    Really loved this quirky little restaurant in the centre of leeds. A tad difficult to find initially. ..the cab driver had no idea...but enjoyed it once there. Good selection of wines at a reasonable price and a very varied menu. It's almost like a tapas experience but not Spanish themed. With the exception of the lamb breast all the dishes were good. Lamb was virtually all fat and was removed from the final bill.
    Staff great and atmosphere very good. Will definitely be back.

    I think the restaurant and bar themselves are beautiful and very well done. I liked the music and the ambience. However we were left waiting for our table for over 45 minutes (I had booked for 6 people at 8:30). When I booked I also had the option of a la carte or tapas... as we were dining with 2 vegetarians, 3 meat eaters and a vegan I didn’t think tapas would be a good option however I did see there was a good offer of 3 or 4 dishes and a glass of prosecco for £23 online. When ordering our food I was informed we could only do tapas option however did not get the deal I saw online. I had heard really great things about the food but to be honest we all found it a little lacklustre. The drinks were good though.
