No Spanish tapas restaurant – whether it be in West Yorkshire or Basque country – would be worth its jamon Iberico if it didn’t have a comprehensive drinks selection to round off a small-plate feast, and La Casita Horsforth delivers in spades. A specialist selection from the famous wine-growing region of Rioja is flanked by Spanish, Italian and French vintages chosen for their ability to complement La Casita’s tapas selection, alongside a good selection of Spanish and international beers either bottled or on tap. A highlight for any fan of a good brew from the Leeds’ area is the natural Basque cider produced using wild apples and traditional brewing methods.
As for the food, it’s here that it becomes clear why La Casita is a favourite in Horsfoth and Leeds when it comes to the ever-popular culinary genre of Spanish tapas. Begin with aperitivos like Manzanilla olives served with rosemary, garlic and red peppers and small meat dishes combining artisan chorizo and jamon Iberico with all manner of ingredients (the duck breast with slow-roasted figs, honey and jamon comes recommended). The charcuterie selection is impressive, with enough combinations of authentic Spanish cuts to keep you coming back for more, while cheese selections, fish and vegetarian plates compete for your attention before you reach the restaurant’s delectable selection of deserts. La Casita’s Town Street address is highly sought after, with diners from Leeds and further afield making bookings far in advance – be sure to follow suite!
Great atmosphere, great place, wine flowing,, food perfect , and fab service, our party of six girls didn't want to leave !!! Will be booking again ❤️It x
The food here is brilliant and varied. The lamb was out of this world true melt in the mouth stuff. The gin cocktails were also brilliant.
Awesome Food - Tasted amazing! Good Portion Sizes - Probably 4 to 5 dishes per person would be enough Brilliant Staff - Very friendly and accommodating Great Venue - Chilled out pre bar with good drinks menu Spot On! Will definitely be back. Cheers!
Lovely food and atmosphere. Good offers during the week as well.
The staff were extremely welcoming and very efficient without being "in your face". We were recommended the Spanish Sauvignon Blanc, which was a really good choice - delightful fragrance and taste. We were helped to choose the six tapas we decided on, and again very good advice. The atmosphere was friendly, spacious and informal, and we loved sitting next to the outside walled garden with the doors open. The food, and the choice of food, was delicious! Amazingly tasty, well presented and actually very filling. We then had coffee and churros with chocolate and vanilla dips and oh my - I can't wait to come back for more of those. A fantastic evening, no pressure from the staff but there whenever we needed them. A classy place to eat. Thank you very much.
Amazinly good. Great explanation from waitresses on number of plates to order for the 2 of us. Some of the plates were expensive for what you got i.e. Fillet beef £7.50 for 2 mouthfuls. However very tasty. Will definitely go again but would order 2 plates at a time so don't all come out quickly. We wanted to slow the experience with a good few bottles of wine for date night. It was a tad rushed with the speed in which the plates came out & as some hot had to eat then. That said definitely going again. Great local eatery.
The tapas were good, with some dishes noticeably very good. The service was - in the main - excellent: friendly, professional and efficient, but let down slightly by the failure to bring the dessert menu we had requested. The biggest drawback for me were the dreadful acoustics - I assume the bare floorboards were a big factor in this and the echo from conversations was very pronounced, making it difficult to hear the people I was dining with. I live two minutes from La Casita and love Spanish food but - despite the good quality tapas and impressive service - would hesitate to go back due to the acoustics which undermined what would otherwise have been a lovely experience.
The food was amazing, we ordered 3 tapas each and finished with parfait, all lovely. The service was excellent, our waitress was very knowledgeable about what was in the tapas and took time to explain that as each dish was cooked to order, the dishes would come out to us as and when they were ready, which worked well for us. Can't wait to go back.
My third visit here and enjoyed it just as much as the previous visits. Love their gin and tonics! We wanted a cocktail that wasn't on the menu but the barman was happy to make it for us and made it really well! To eat we had chorizo in red wine, scallops, garlic king prawns, ham hock croquettes and padron peppers, all of which were fantastic!
Great food but the plates are edging towards the small size for tapas (in my experience) so order a good selection. Well prices however so try a few more than you might normally. The hake on pesto risotto was my highlight. My only real critasism was the lack of attention given to my table especially when trying to order more drinks or arrange for the bill to be brought over. All in all a great meal, thoroughly enjoyed.
Nice enough food not the greatest tapas I've had. The staff were ok but two different waitresses told us the specials of a bottle or wine and some ribs - that was it and we were told twice. Some of the dishes aren't great the green peppers were just half chargrilled & oily and 4 small prawns in another dish. We ordered coffe afterwards, I had to wait till way after desserts and after my friend had got hers - in the end I asked again for it. We were then moved from our table as it was booked again after us - this would've been fine if they'd have told us in the beginning not mid coffee, we were sent off to find another seat.
Lovely authentic food and great service. The dishes are served staggered but not so you have a long wait. We've been a few times now and each time had different dishes, each and every one has been delicious. Oh and the pink lemonade is highly recommended! We can't wait to return again! :o)
We went on a Saturday evening which we thought would be busy but it wasn't which we liked. The staff were very attentive and menus for drinks and food were brought to us.The service was efficient and the food delightful as the evening wore on most of the tables emptied so it became very quiet but there were some people at the bar.
La Casita was a generally good and clean. The Service was friendly and she was helpful. The menu offered a wide range. I thought it that the food was quite heavily marked up for hat it was. the food did lack authenticity and was too salty, almost so that it spoilt a couple of tapas dishes. Commercial experience, did I think I was in Spain, not a chance. However made a good night out with great company.
The menu seemed limited upon arrival however the quality of the food was very good. The service was excellent. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. My wife and I took our two children who are nine and seven, they were made to feel welcome by the staff
Had a delicious lunch with a friend to day. Food was gorgeous, three dishes each which was plenty and a big glass of wine finished off with lemon sponge for pudding. It's the third time I have been and not been disappointed once, staff are efficient and friendly. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Look forward to next time.
Poor quality control, one minut piece of goats cheese on the butternut squash salad, so complained and asked for another, incorrect potato dish served especially when all dishes needed to be gluten free! By the time these two dishes were served we'd eaten our other dishes. Finally dessert was served with the wrapping still on the mango parfait. Added to which no one in charge apologised for the poor service. Although food is very tasty, service needs to be taken in hand and someone needs to be in charge instead of student workers.
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, arrived to a welcoming reception, our waiter was polite,efficient and very informative and his service was excellent. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. The food was varied, of good quality and really tasty. This is my 4th visit, can't wait to return.
Went there with my family for lunch . The food was very tasty. Particularly enjoyed the meatballs, the roasted prawns, the chicken wings and the goats cheese. Only criticism is I would have liked maybe a tomato salad on the menu. Service was also very quick and courteous. Would definitely come again.
Food was really nice. It took a while to get our order taken and for the food to come out, but they looked quite busy. One of the best Tapas I've ever had. Just need to be wary that they bring out the dishes at different times. This was explained when we ordered. It just means that the food is fresh and piping hot
