Description: Wonderful Downstairs cellar bar. Unique in so many ways with a real stone floor. The upstairs dining room boasts panoramic views across the bustling small town of Holmfirth. The atmosphere offered in both of these areas is second to none in the Holme Valley.

Little restuarant in the centre of Holmfirth. Lovely atmosphere just a little disappointed with service from beginning to end and food wasn't cracking. Worth another go just not in a hurry

Thank you for reviewing Les Caveaux Tapas & Wine Bar. I can only apologize that you felt in your opinion that the food and service was not up to its usual very high standards. As you can see from the majority of our reviews your experience is unusual. I do hope this will not put you off coming back to give us a try another time and allow us to make sure the next time you review Les Caveaux Tapas & Wine Bar that you tell all about how you cannot wait to go back!

Kind Regards,

“slipped a long way since our last visit”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visited Les Caveaux a few years ago and it was outstanding. We knew it had changed hands but we were still dissapointed with the food we were served. It was Christmas Eve but the staff manged to fit us in. The staff were the best thing about the place really friendly and attentive.
We orderd our food and after a short wait it arrived. Sadly many of the dishes were not very good. A garlic and lemon chicken was grey and unappetizing. The meatballs were dry and a bit stale as though they had been left under a hot lamp or for a few hours. The patatas bravas had little sauce and there was no spice to it. One of the dishes i had orderd they had run out by the time the order got to the kitchen which was fine so i orderd some chicken wings. They were very nice coated in a little honey but they were advertised as hot and spicy - they were more hot and sweet.

The menu has a nice range of options on it and portion sizes were large but id find it hard to recommend based on cost and quality of food.

Firstly thank you very much for your review. All feedback good and bad is always welcomed by me! As owner if people such as yourself who don't have the greatest experience do not tell me or review in this way it is difficult for me to implement the changes necessary to get all aspects of the dining experience correct.

Since your visit i now have some new members of staff in our busy kitchen and the menu has also changed. On the positive side it is great to hear complimentary feedback on the standard of my waiters/waitresses who are very carefully selected.

I do hope you are not put off coming back to try us once more as i can personally guarantee that these problems have been rectified!

Kind Regards

“Lovely tapas”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Visited with a small group of friends just before christmas. I was expecting more atmosphere & other customers so a little disappointed that it was quite empty & lacking in atmsophere. The staff were a little inattentive and not too interested however we had the 'party' menu £19.50 each. It was a good choice. Lots of variety and plenty of food which we all enjoyed. However due to the lack of atmosphere we moved onto to another bar when we finished eating. A shame really as it could be a super venue for live music which I was expecting given it was a Saturday in the run up to christmas.

“Fabulous atmosphere and food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've been to Les Caveaux a few times, but not for a very long time. I decided to introduce my girlfriends to the wonders of Holmfirth and we dined their last week. I really wanted to eat downstairs (even though for a table of 7 it's a sqeeze), but I knew that and was happy to cram in under the eaves. The service was brilliant, the food just kept coming and there was a guy who turned up with a keyboard and made the experience even better.
Really good value for money to.
TOP TIP: Go for the chefs special, which is everything on the menu for £19.50, but pace yourself, there's lots of it

“Great food, poor service”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Arrived at 7pm for a pre-booked meal. Spend 20 minutes waiting to be asked for any food (bread and olives would've been fab!) Amazing food came out very quickly- Olives that had been ordered didn't arrive but were added to final bill.

A real shame as with good service this place would be superb.
