This is a great little place with good food and really friendly staff.
Lovely food. Great service. Hi Georgia from Rosa AMAZING COOL
A great place, with a lovely authentic atmosphere and delightful food
We had a lovely evening with our friends at Amalthea: food delicious and atmosphere very pleasant
I have never been disappointed in any of my more than 12 visits to Amalthea. I have always enjoyed the food, the service is friendly and the staff attentive, the ambience is great and reminiscent of a Greek island. I want to note especially the food - as, after all, this is a restaurant/bistro. The menu is exciting (a little too long perhaps, but that reflects the chef's desire to show his talents!) and changes regularly, or probably evolves through the year and the seasons. There's the Greek standards but also dishes that even I (a Greek) had not tried before. Gems from regional cooking traditions. All well executed and using the best local ingredients. The meat dishes are outstanding! Only "complaint" is the absence of a drinks licence. Choosing a good wine to go with your meal should be part of any culinary experience.
Love this new addition to the eating choices in North Leeds. This is a really attractive restaurant and made all of us reminisce about past meals in Greek tavernas on holidays spent on sunny Greek Islands. A very extensive menu and all 4 of us would rate highly the choices we made. I can personally recommend the mini spinach pie starter (mini by name but not by nature) and the very tasty pork loin special which defeated me in the end but I got a doggie bag to take home for a very grateful Labrador! Lovely staff who are attentive and cheerful. We will definitely be visiting again soon.
I'm afraid that the extensive and tempting-sounding menu didn't live up to expectations. Whilst my lamb kleftiko was reasonably tasty, it was accompanied only by a salad garnish and rice. My husband's pork kotsi (shank) had identical accompaniments, and according to the menu had been 'roasted with Cretan orange-infused extra virgin olive oil'. I asked my husband whether he could taste the orange, to which her replied 'a little'. The evening had started well - entering a cosy, attractive bistro, with deli goods ranged behind our table. Also, my husband's starter of green beans in a tomato and herb sauce, with pitta bread and cheese was enjoyable. Unfortunately, the wait for this and all other courses was far too long - even making allowances for Greek service! Also, we had ordered some olives to nibble on whilst waiting for my husband's starter - these didn't come until his starter was delivered. The desserts too were disappointing, with my "black cherry cake: consisting of a small square of unexciting plain chocolate cake, with a few cherries, drizzled with a honey dressing. The coffees we ordered came a very long time before the desserts, meaning we had no coffee to drink by the time the desserts arrived.
Our return visit was just as enjoyable as our first + 2 friends there for the first time were equally impressed & will be back. The "service" can hardly be called service, as it is like friends coming to the table to ask what we'd like to eat. Just so friendly, and the food really excellent. In order to manage a delicious dessert, two starters instead of a starter & main work well, so able to enjoy the lemon cake. A lovely place, lovely people & we'll be back soon. Thank you.
A nice, warm and relaxed bistro. The place it self is quite nice , with the sun , bathing the inside of the bistro from every side . The waitress , Georgia, is so friendly and kind. The food quite tasty and authentic . Try the almathea salad , and kolokythokeftedes. The sweet bureki needs to be less sweet , it’s sweeter than I expected for a starter , but that’s personal taste. The soutzoukakia and the Ithaca chicken were also nice. The desserts amazing. You need to visit.
Very impressed. Don't know why it's taken us so long to visit. However we have recently moved to the area so will definitely be back. Staff very friendly, service brilliant. The food is extremely good. We had the meat Mexer for two. Wil try the seafood one next time. Wonderful atmosphere and ambience. We went when it was snowing but as soon as we stepped inside we felt like we were in Greece. Would definitely recommend. Think we will become regulars
