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!
Excellent food and service and friendly staff. The early bird menu on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday tea time is very good value. A good selection on the menu.
Lovely variety of food. Chorizo popcorn and Daube beef were my favourite. The salted caramel parfait was delicious and the staff were great. Cocktails were great too.
Really Amazing food reasonably priced and plenty to choose from and good sized portions plus they have really pleasant staff i would definitely recommend to anyone
Lovely food, reasonably priced and good service, would definitely go back if I can get in which is difficult if not booked weeks in advance
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
Excellent friendly staff, at the bar and table, gorgeous food - even better because it was early bird! This was the second time for me and the first time for my friend but we're hooked! Recommending to all our friends.
Food was lovely but service could have been better. The waitresses, whilst polite, were not very attentive, possibly because several different staff members served our table at various points through the evening. I'd give the benefit of the doubt and would visit again, but wouldn't go a third time if the service hasn't improved on the next visit.
The food was amazing as always but the service was appalling. We waited 20 minutes in only a half filled restaurant with no attention until I got up and found a waitress and asked her to take our order for drinks and food. There was no apology and actually she wasn't very friendly at all. The rest of the service was about ok but continued to feel that other than bringing plates to the table, waiting staff do not understand the nature and skill of service. No one ever asks if you've enjoyed the food or for feedback, no one offered us a bill without being asked, half the staff seem incapable of a smile.
A lovely birthday evening, the wonderful came at short intervals which was better than it all coming at once, that's how you're supposed to eat Tapas. The waiting staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you, enjoyed the rose wine. Would recommend it.
Local restaurant, warm welcome, friendly, well priced and unusually quiet. Good selection of beers complementing a broad choice of tapas, well presented, albeit everything seemed to arrive within minutes leaving the table crowded, when a more relaxed pace would have been welcomed. Worth checking out.
Food was amazing and some really different tapas choices, décor is lovely and the atmosphere was really relaxing. Staff were great and happy to make a mojita, even though it wasn't on the menu.
Great food, lovely choices and friendly staff. The music was a little bit too loud for lunchtime though and the service was a bit too slow for a lunchtime (it took us well over our lunch hour!). Would definitely return!
Lovely food and fantastic wine. Every dish was truly superb! The bottom of the restaurant does have an empty vibe and perhaps the layout would improve this but cannot fault this restaurant!
Great that somewhere like this has opened in Horsforth, the food was delicious and lots of options. Only thing I'd criticise is that whilst extremely tasty the portions were small (even for tapas) would definitely go again though.
If it was purely for the food I would give them 100%, just not sure about the dining layout, it was quite loud! It felt a little like a large dining room with everyone sat next to each other trying to shout over table next to them.
Am absolutely fantastic experience, food was sensational and the service impeccable. We couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Our lovely lady who looked after us is a credit to the restaurant.
Second visit and each time I was equally impressed. Amazing,well presented food which arrives at just the right time! Extremely knowledgeable and helpful waitress Amanda,lovely authentic and peaceful atmosphere. Love it.
Great food, excellent service and a good atmosphere. Two of us shared eight dishes which was just about right. Along with a couple of drinks and a coffee the bill came to £59. We'll certainly be back.
Superb food, welcoming staff, early bird is a genuine bargain. Red wines by the glass were both good value and went well with the food. First visit and seriously impressed.
Good atmosphere and food. Tapas tasty and well thought out and executed. Like that they serve a piece of strawberry on their glasses of prosecco. A welcome addition to horsforth.
Food was delicious, and it came out as soon as it was ready which was good as we didn't have to wait too long, it was fresh and it was a nice steady flow of food.
Great food but a little noisy due to loud customers in echoing surroundings. Really enjoyed the meal. The staff were helpful and attentive though service was a little slow at the beginning. Would definitely go again.
Second time here and enjoyed it as much as the forst. Fantastic food, the mushrooms, scollops and red wine chorizo are highly recommended and finished with a delicious cocktail!
Great food and service, really tasty. We were just sat by the window which was a bit cold and had to wait quite a while for the bill. Otherwise I'd highly recommend this restaurant.
Third time of visiting - still not disappointed! Fantastic tasting, fresh dishes - I'm a fan! Early bird is especially great as it gives such value for money.
Lovely, tasty, well presented food in warm and inviting surroundings. There was a good atmosphere with attentive, caring staff. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family
Excellent food, one of the best tapas restaurants in Leeds. Strong wine list, very good service and a convivial atmosphere. A very welcome addition to the Horsforth scene
Great choice of tapas. Food and presentation was excellent. Nice relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Music was fab too. Blueberry Gingito was amazing. We will definitely be returning.
first time we have been, service was excellent as was the food. had a great time. good value for money. will certainly go again in the near future
Great food ,lovely place, thoroughly enjoyed every part of the evening. No complaints and no hesitation to recommend to family and friends. Have already booked to go again.
Very nice food albeit meat portions a bit on the small side and expensive for tapas. Wine reasonable and good quality but must say the pudding filled me up more than the tapas.
Went here last night for the first time and was very impressed. Was a little worried knowing what used to be there before but excellent tapas and a wide choice of dishes!
Great food and great price although drinks were pricey . Lacked a little atmosphere for a Spanish restaurant, some bsckgroung music woukd have been good but overall we had a great meal!
Great service and good food! A little bit of confusion with what we ordered but the rest of the food was worth it! Would go again!
Really good selection of food - good modern atmosphere - went for a birthday meal with friends, fast service and good value for money, would recommend
Amazing experience. The food was top quality, fresh and absolutely delicious! Will certainly be returning. We chose the house wine and it complimented the food perfectly.
The food was delicious, there was a relaxed atmosphere. we received an excellent, helpful and friendly service. Would visit again and would definitely recommend. Thank you.
Best Spanish tapas we've ever had. There was an interesting selection of dishes on the menu. Very attentive service.Staff helpful and knowledgeable. Buzzing atmosphere.Would definitely return.
Amazing tapas, great choice of drinks, lovely atmosphere, good value for money, lots of options for vegetarians and gluten free. We'll definitely be going there again!
Excellent La Casita, Lovely food at resonable prices, Staff were so friendly and Knowlegablea bout the food they were servering.. Certainly is well worth a visit
Great menu and excellent food which was well presented and very tasty. The service was a little on the slow side but didn't spoil out experience. We will definitely be back.
Food is excellent but it took us over half an hour for our order to be taken (including drinks) and when the food did arrive we had to remind them that we had ordered wine. Clearly a disconnect in drinks orders as the table behind us seemed to have similar complaints
Fantastic lunch with 2 friends. Lovely mixture of tapas, fun staff and sensational dessert. Staff were very attentive and offered advice on portions and tastes.
Great tasty food, with a lovely atmosphere. Loved the one ilkley and this is just as good. Moderate prices but worth it! Just go :)
