“Rude staff serving mediocre food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

I have been twice now, despite hearing horror stories I gave it a fair trial. The staff were rude and we felt couldn't wait for us to finish. The food isn't brilliant and they couldn't even make a Marguerita.

“shocking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

The restaurant looks great and is in a fantastic spot. However, my girlfriend and I sat for an hour and twice asked for our food before discovering they had lost our order. They promised us a free glass of wine to make up for it but didn't bring that either. We only ordered fish - it arrived 70 mins later and was cold. I might forgive this in a busy restaurant but there were only 6 tables of diners. A truly shocking experience.

“Cool bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

The reviews were so good here I thought they might be written by friends and family but it is all true. The food is top quality. The atmosphere is just right for French bistro. The service was a little slow given that it was half full ( mid week) but very friendly all the same. It is not as cheap as some reviews suggest but is worth it. Highly recommended ( no relation).

“Excellent attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

Visited for the first time last night for my partners birthday. They'd organised a little surprise which was a lovely touch. The food was outstanding, one of the nicest places I've eaten in Leeds. The service was superb. The food is v good value if you sit down before 8 midweek. Lovely decor too. Will be back soon for seconds!!!
