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!

Wonderful anniversary meal!

Last night was our first visit to Sous le Nez and will certainly not be the last. I decided to book a table for my wife and I to celebrate our 22nd anniversary after hearing Alan Bennett recommend it last year when he held an 'Afternoon with...' show at the Playhouse. Everything was perfect... read more

Service really slow; the cod dish was basically a large piece of cod on a pile of mash with cheese sauce. So disappointing when you could have done better at home. Waited a very long time for them to clear table. No dessert offered, tried to catch waiters several times but eventually gave up. Bill was wrong - overcharged by... More

Can't fault this wonderful Cuisine Modern french restaurant. Every time we go the food is great, the service authentically french - and everything is near perfect. Went for the early bird this time - limited menu but plenty of choice and great value including half a bottle of wine.

We recently visited Sous Le Nez for a wedding reception and enjoyed a fine meal in the restaurant. Service was excellent from arrival to departure. The food was excellent too. Couldn't be faulted and that went for everyone in the wedding party. Outstanding choice of wine with a menu that ran to 60+ pages from recollection! My only minor criticism... More

This restaurant is packed with atmosphere, it looks as though it hasnt been decorated in a while, but what it lacks in decor it more than makes up for it in ambiance.

You can never proof anything. However, after visiting this restaurant I and 3 other colleagues had bad stomachs all night. When I spoke to the Manager he stated that the food was fresh and the cause must have been an 'office bug'. Strange really, as we all had the same dish!!!! I go to many business dinners in Leeds, but... More

With your table of eight, all were served the same dish, yet only a few of members raised a complaint and it is of our understanding that these work separately from the rest.
