Amalthea began life in proper DIY garage startup fashion in the suburban Leeds suburb of Adel as an online deli, introducing organic and fairtrade foods sourced from independent Greek producers to a UK audience. The success of the venture saw entrepreneurs and passionate Greek foodies John and Georgia Papatzikakis and Eva Chatzopoulou expand to add a cafe and bistro, adding chef Constantine Tsapanidis to the team and leavening the mix of imported Greek ingredients with fresh produce from local Yorkshire farms. The result is lively cafe and bistro-style restaurant down The Crescent off Otley Road and a menu packed with gourmet sandwiches and sweets, pies and snacks that pair well with traditional Greek coffee, well-known Greek dishes alongside modern and experimental creations. For casual dining or your next plate-smashing celebration, be sure to book in advance.
I went with three friends to this lovely restaurant. The meals we ordered were all excellent, authentic Greek dishes, the waitress was extremely helpful and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. I cannot recommend this place enough!
A super evening, welcoming staff, lively atmosphere, excellent choices on menu and superb food. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you to all of the staff.
As always, excellent food and excellent service. Love this place !
