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.
A lovely evening for my daughter's birthday. For a small family business couldn't believe the extensive menu. Food was delicious and the service great. Even put up a banner and balloons for birthday. With the decor and music felt like a little piece of Greece in Adel. Would definitely recommend and will be back again
Great food and friendly service Good atmosphere Very large and varied menu Easy parking Bring your own bottle Nice starters Lovely souvlaki Very well priced
Great little place to eat! Took advantage of the special offer before 6.30pm. Forgot to take our own wine but enjoyed everything all the same. Food fantastic and different ...... Will definitely be returning before too long. Service very friendly and can highly recommend you give it a try.
