Very cosy little place always busy and a little noisy but food is always perfect staff are great. Don't forget your glasses as menu is on the wall all though you do get a pair of binoculars to use . A little expensive but you pay for what you get, would definitely eat here again but need to book well... More

Went here on a very rare date night with my wife, the place looks great the food was nice but the prices were very expensive for what you got. Only cost £20 more for 5 people to eat & drink at Estabulo next door & we were all full up afterwards.

Very good food. My onion soup was as it should be in a French restaurant and the rest of the meal was also of a high standard. They can really cook like the French here. The waitresses were charming and efficient (it is not common to get both together in the UK!) There is an interesting and unassuming introduction by... More

What an absolutely brilliant place. You step from the streets of Leeds into a Parisienne paradise. An idyllic setting whether you want a romantic evening, a catch up friends or a celebration party. The food is simply delicious and absolutely heart warming. We were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary and were treated to champagne on arrival and a sweet assortment... More

We were asked if were celebrating anything and when I told them it was my partners birthday we were given 2 glasses of complimentary champagne. I loved the décor of the bistro, plenty of French artwork and candles dotted... More

This is one of my partner and my favorite restaurants in Leeds, this time we came with my parents (dads 68th :-) and my dads sister who was up from London, we knew it would be perfect as it has such a beautiful atmosphere. Whenever we go the staff are a delight, you feel special without being bothered. They're attentive... More

We travelled to Leeds for a weekend away and my Husband booked Kendells for my birthday. We both really loved the ambience and the friendly greeting we got when we arrived. We were given complimentary fizz since I was celebrating, which was a lovely touch. The menus are quirkily written on a large blackboard and the waiter went off to... More
