Favourite in Leeds

Love this place. Enveloped in lovely, delicious warmth from the minute we walked. Great comfort food, french-style. Friendly staff, quirky decor and cosy cooking will keep me coming back.

After an initial shock of the Restaurant not having our table allocated due to an administrative error they found a table. Overall ambiance was very nice, not too crowded at the table, nice cold bottle of French Beer. Things were moving along nicely, Calamari to start with Garlic Aoli very nice, Lamb Rump with more peas than i have ever... More

Kendells Bistro is the ideal restaurant to celebrate special occasions in lovely, candlelit surrounding with beautiful food. I’ve been to the bistro twice now, a year apart, both times for my partner’s birthday. Our last visit was for his 30th so we were joined by both our parents. We weren’t disappointed and neither were they. It was both parents first... More

I really love Kendell's Bistro - I think it's completely unique in Leeds city centre and provides a genuine French experience. However the last time we visited we seemed to be rushed through the meal - a shame as it was my partner's birthday and I had booked the table a long time in advance. This sort of ruined the... More

Thus restaurant has no fixed menu so you need to check the blackboards which can be awkward but the waitress used our mobile phone to take a photo of the boards. There is masses of choice and all the food was wonderful. I had a brilliant beetroot and goats cheese tart and followed this with a delicious salmon encrute. For... More

Had a fantastic meal for my 30th birthday. Complimentary sparkling wine, a beautiful meal from the tea time menu (which was fantastic value at £27 for 3 courses and half a bottle of wine!) and a birthday present of petite four! Wonderful hidden gem in Leeds.

We were staying Leeds this weekend with friends and we looked on trip advisor for places to eat.....soooo glad we chose Kendalls. Such a gorgeous French restaurant with a real Mediterranean feel to the place. Lit by candlelight made it extra special. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. So many delicious dishes to choose from you really... More

Nice restaurant with friendly staff. Food is delicious, but you need to pay the price. To me it was bit expensive. But may be that's just me whining.

Food great but how disappointing to spend £180 for 3 people and be told to vacate the table after 2 hours! Seemed to be in total disaray tonight. What's happened to my favourite restaurant. Management not interested.

You wouldn't know you were in Leeds in this beautiful hidden away secret...food and atmosphere absolutely wonderful. We tried the early bird menu as well which is excellent value for money
