Wonderful little restaurant tucked away on the outskirts of Chapel Allerton. Traditional Spanish tapas and bar. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. It's a bit cosy, but if it was any bigger it wouldn't be the same atmosphere. Would definitely go back - there's...More

Been here once before and enjoyed the food, but this time, myself and a friend became unwell after eating here. No other reason why both of us would be sick.

This was our first visit to this lovely tapas restaurant. We were shown to our table by Shaun, the manager who went out of his way to explain the menu. The food was excellent and I can say without any doubt that after working in...More

Anniversary early evening meal. We have limited experience of tapas and this restaurant is outstanding in so many ways. Very welcoming, outstanding and knowledgable service, varied selection and very well cooked. Good value for money and we will certainly return and take guests. Thank you...More

No I'm sorry, it has very steep stairs to get to the restaurant downstairs. You can ask to eat upstairs as it has wheelchair access but its very busy!

Tapas from my Grannies Recipes in a hand built bar and restaurant we made ourselves. We like to think we have brought a little bit of Spain, a traditional taverna, with us to Leeds. With Live acoustic music every Tuesday in our cosy downstairs restaurant, and music through out the week. Pablo and Yeyo offer as authentic Tapas as it is possible to find in a unique little restaurant. You can relax in the bar after a hard days work, or maybe outside and enjoy a glass of specially selected Spanish wine.
