Description: It's all about a different atmosphere. It's about good food. It's about good service and attention to detail.So no wonder the long-established Sous Le Nez is one of the most acclaimed restaurant and winebars in Leeds. In fact, our award winning basement bar and bistro - in a handy, city centre location - has been providing mouthwatering food to Leeds diners for over 15 years. Our wine list is as unusual as it is extensive, and our lunchtime and evening menus are creative and very popular. And our portions are huge too!

Good consistant menu we have never had a bad meal in all the 20 years of dining. Good early bird blackboard menu of three courses and a half bottle of red or white per person. The staff are friendly, attentive, efficient and give a good service. A good night always guaranteed.

This was my third visit to Sous Le Nez and each time the food has been excellent. This time we ate in the evening. We got the early bird deal of 3 courses and half bottle of wine for just over £25. There is plenty to choose from and each of the courses was excellent. Being a French restaurant the... More

Beautiful food, beautiful place, beautiful company. It as perfect for us both, more relaxed than kendells and just reminds you of the benefits of a great city as opposed to a parochial little town.

Can't believe it has taken me 5 years to eat here. The food is amazing with such a fantastic choice of dishes - really spoilt for choice. The service is excellent, not in your face but very friendly. This is french food at it's best with the interior being typically french - not flashy in anyway, just nice. I will... More

This place is, literally, under your nose. It's at basement level, so you can just see the windows at ankle level as you approach. We had a brilliant meal: the quail scotch eggs were gorgeous! The venison beautifully cooked, the fish special yummy, pigeon breast with chorizo gorgeous, pork crackling a little soft, but everything else was perfect. Lovely cheese... More

I always go for my business lunches and recommend sous to friends. It's great for steak and fries, a decent glass of wine, through to brilliant fish dishes. Relaxed, friendly and knowledgable staff, it's probably the best restaurant in Leeds and then some. Top marks.

Visited with former work colleagues and used the early bird menu.Enjoyed warm salad with chorizo followed by belly pork for main and rhubarb parfait dessert. All excellent and good value, although missed out on the half bottle of wine as I was driving. I had not read reviews before visiting, but I can see that noise could be a problem.... More

Went with another couple for the early bird special. Drinks in the bar first, then order before 7 for the special deal. I had deep fried brie with red wine and mango chutney jus starter, pork belly entree and creme Brulee for dessert, all with a great rose wine. We used to live in Beaulieu sur mer in the Cote... More

Another fantastic visit to Sous le Nez last Saturday. The food was fantastic and the service just right all helped by two bottles of Crozes Hermitage which we’re superb.
