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.
Amazing friendly family run restaurant. Lovely seeing, feels just like a little taverna. Really good vegetarian and vegan food too. Can't wait to return soon!
Lovely food served in a relaxed setting, fantastic service and super friendly staff. Wide choice of food to suit all tastes. Will visit again soon.
Amalthea is the best restaurant in Leeds by a mile. I love the family atmosphere and the food is outstanding. I can’t sing it’s praises loudly enough and take everybody I know there. Halloumi with cinnamon and honey is a revelation.
