Came six years ago and loved it but took us a while to come back. Best restaurant in Leeds for atmosphere, service, food and value. Le boom!

I went on a Thurs evening with my teenage sons on our last night in Leeds. I'd expected it would be busy but it was packed at 7.30. A good mix of families; larger parties & couples. Not too noisy, we could talk without having to shout which makes a change.

Struggled a bit with the blackboard menus until sons helped out by taking photos for me to view. Many delicious things. Snails; bone marrow.

Service was a mix of novices & the more professional. Jess was knowledgeable, friendly & a true pleasure to meet.

I found Kendells Bistro on trip advisor, I was looking for something different for our first anniversary. It was in the top 20 best restaurants in Leeds and with it being French I couldn't resist so I went along to their website and made a reservation for a Saturday night. I left a little comment mentioning it was a special occasion but didn't think too much of it. We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted by the owner who wished us a happy anniversary. We were seated right in the corner so we were unable to see their black board service, however the waitress kindly took a photo of the menus for us, they seemed to do that for most customers. The service was fantastic, the waitresses were all so friendly and polite and even had a little laugh and a joke with us. We received 2 glasses of complimentary bubbly to celebrate which I thought was very thoughtful. The food was outstanding, very nearly Michelin star I thought. The prices were what you would expect to pay for such a nice restaurant, the overall bill came to £52 which included 2 mains, 2 sides (which were ordered separately, the mains we chose didn't come with sides) 2 drinks and a dessert to share! We also received free complimentary home made chocolate desserts. Absolute 5 star and would visit again for another occasion.
