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!

Sous Le Nez has been open for many years and due to the fact that Leeds has so many restaurants now I think this gem is often a forgotten option. We went for a group dinner on a Thursday evening and there were about 4 other tables occupied. The menu choices are excellent, the staff attentive and the food delicious.... More

We went on the 21st August but only booked the day before and we were warned it was the last, and worst, table they had. Actually the siting of the table wasn't really bad and the service was first class. The food was first class as well and the atmosphere, although lively, was relaxing. Despite the restaurant being very busy... More

A friend and I had spent all day walking in the Yorkshire Dales and returned to Leeds early evening ravenous for food. Despite having a pretty full list of evening reservations we were given a warm welcome and served efficiently and promptly. The food was of a very high standard.

I had venison, my wife, duck breast. Both were nice, although in both cases we would have preferred them a bit more undercooked. However I suspect this has more to do with local customer expectations than a real quality issue. Wine list quite impressive, with interestingf and not overly expensive cellared wines.

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and thought it worth trying. We weren't disappointed! The experience is authentic French and the food is wonderful. It's not cheap but it was so good I didn't really mind - I just couldn't quite stretch to £225 for a bottle of Dom Perignon! We would make a point of going again when... More

After having several friends recommend Sous le Nez en Ville when we were looking for a nice restaurant in Leeds we decided to test those endorsements. A lovely little place with a great atmosphere, and we had a table in our own little alcove, very romantic. All three courses were excellent (only complaints were things not quite to our taste...

We had dinner here for our third anniversary. It was a Tuesday night and it was busy - we hadn't booked but they managed to seat us. The service was excellent, and the food and wine were divine. I had rare beef salad for starters, peppered tuna nicoise for my main and deconstructed black forest gateau for my dessert. It... More

Had a lovely meal here on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy and waiters rushed off their feet but service was still OK. The food was lovely although rather expensive. I would have awarded it a Very Good status but had to mark it down due to the accoustics. We were seated at the far end of the restaurant... More
