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!

This small Bar Grill just a short walk from Leeds Station is big on choice, quality and service. All I said on arrival was ;I'm Gluten-Free' and I was given a full Menu for Starters and Main and side dishes. For desserts there were 4 choices pointed out to me. Choice was wide and the meals excellent, the service too.

First the good bits. Sous le Nez deserves 4 stars for food quality and the excellent wine list. The quail egg scotch egg starter was delicious - crisp non greasy crumb, tasty sausage and perfectly cooked egg. The venison was tender and the accompanying sausage a good counterpoint. Panacotta wobbled beautifully with ripe strawberries. BUT - there are too many... More

Do not be baffled by the underground setting to this restaurant. Sous le nez provides great service and the food isn't so bad either. I'm quite a snob when it comes to french food (as in I have high standards) but this place provided a humbling experience. Although the taste from the food didn't explode in my mouth, I was... More

We were visiting Leeds for our son's graduation. So we decided to try and have an early dinner somewhere. We decided on Sous Le Nez because we'd been there once before some years ago, and we'd liked it then. We weren't disappointed. I went for the early bird special, about £25 for three courses. Great choice, seven or eight per... More

Another fantastic visit to Sous le Nez following an evening at the opera. We love the fact they serve later than the usual 10pm you find in lots of places, so that we can enjoy a great meal after the theatre. Food was delicious, as always, and the service is second-to-none. The staff here are really friendly, welcoming and professional.... More

We were part a large party for a birthday, but even so the service was good, food came out hot and was very tasty. We chose from the TDH style menu for about £25 per head, there was plenty of choice. Really nice setting and well suited to romantic meal for 2, small gathering or large party. No wonder it... More
