About Amalthea Greek Cafe, Deli & Bistro

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.

Excellent food as ever, with the usual friendly and attentive service we have come to expect. One of the best restaurants in Leeds...would highly recommend to anybody who enjoys Greek food in an authentic setting.

A very cosy restaurant with lovely food and staff. My daughter is very picky when it comes to food, but she ate everything yesterday. Wish You a success in future, and hope we will have the opportunity to visit You soon.
