Highly Recommended

The food at the Engine House is lovely, you get great service (with a smile) and the staff are more than happy to help/assist whenever required. A great venue for food and a nice relaxing place for a dring after work :-) Would recommend to anybody.

Wonderful food especially the chicken and the steak. Ambience is wonderful as they have music but it is not too loud and is easy to hear each other talk yet it still has a buzz feeling. Great service. Don't miss this 'find' Nice outside area in a square. It is behind the Cross Keys Pub if you are driving.

A generous well cooked breakfast with the best scrambled egg ever. Pleasant unusual interior and cheerful friendly staff. The lunch menu looked good, so will certainly call again for that. The cafe is in an interesting surrounding area of Leeds with the river and Dark Arches round the corner.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to: an absolute delight. We were allowed to try different wines before buying a bottle (a very good Malbec). The starters were gorgeous (I would highly recommend the prawns), the Pave steak was the best steak I've tasted bar none, and the desert was damn good too. Fantastic staff, nice atmosphere and...

First went here in 2009 after descovering the venue from a free hi-life diners card and I ate the tastiest steak I have ever had and from 2009 till now I have not tasted a steak as good. Pros: Food quality Portions Service Building has a certain charm Cons: This venue has stopped me ordering steaks everywhere to avoid disappointment.... More

My Girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get a last minute booking at the Engine House Cafe for a meal on Valentines evening. We have eaten at pretty much every well know restaurant in Leeds and wanted to try somewhere new with a good reputation. The positive reviews on here and the fact we had not tried before were...
