Very pleasant experience. Wide choice of dishes, well presented, served at just the right speed. Excellent choice of wines, reasonably priced, and served at the right temperature.
Outstanding food and friendly service. Great location too. Especially recommend the crocettes which were better than any experienced. Chorizo in red wine also a hit!
Lovely meal on saturday night. Food and atmosphere excellent and great staff. Definitely will be recommending to others and will be back again. V happy.
Our first visit to this lovely little hidden gem - the restaurant is beautifully laid out & we were greeted pleasantly. Soon served drinks & food orders taken from the well balanced menu. The wine we ordered was delicious and good value too. The food was stunning - very tasty & each dish was cooked to perfection and came in good time. Nice staff and lovely atmosphere made such a pleasant experience that we hope to repeat again very soon!
Fantastic! We're regulars at La Casita in Ilkley and Horsforth, but this was our first visit to Leeds City Centre.....Great to find the same high standards apply. Excellent, friendly service. Food amazing as always :-). Braised Ox cheek deserves a special mention - incredibly tasty and tender. I have to say again though the 'Panes' starter is disappointing compared to what it used to be. Bring back the warm mini loaves - they were amazing!! Also, I don't really like the black olive tapenade, but just personal choice. Overall, another lovely visit to a branch of La Casita - The best! Looking forward to trying Boston Spa soon,
Saturday afternoon, not too busy, so I asked if I could switch to a table nearer the window from my corner one & they were happy to do so. Service was very good throughout - asked about Wi-Fi and was provided with the password promptly. We were given plenty of time to decide on our order. The food was delicious, especially the pulpo cervice, and the cocktails top class - perfectly chilled and filled to the brim espresso martinis. The gin menu is also extensive plus they use Fentimens as a mixer, so you know your drinks won't be ruined by sickly sweetener! Would definitely go again.
Have been to La Casita in Ilkley several times and have never had any complaints, so decided to try the one in Leeds as we were going to the theatre. The staff were lovely and very friendly, there were four of us and we ordered the recommended number of dishes each. Can't complain about any of the dishes except the scallops it looked like they had sliced one medium sized scallop into four. This made a very small dish, we have had this in Ilkley and always been happy with the size of portion. We did not complain as we were with family and did not want to spoil the occasion and also as I said everything else was perfect.
Food was excellent, really tasty and we felt good value as we had the lunch deal, 2 tapas for £9.00. Overall service was good but the restaurant was slightly let down by a manager, who hadn't served us rushing us to finish our meal. We had booked a table for 13:30 and weren't told that there was any time restriction on the table at the time of booking, we were then told 15 minutes before, having just ordered desserts that we would have to leave at 15:00. After complaining they apologised and allowed us until 15:30 but it was a shame that our meal ended on this slightly sour note...
Such a lovely menu filled with a great selection of meats, cheeses, fish and veggie dishes. Personal favourite was the Lubina! Boyfriend loved the beer selection! It was fantastic service and a really nice atmosphere. Dishes come out bits at a time, and first out was the patatas bravas. We both said that we would have wished that it came later in the meal, but it all got eaten and each dish was delicious! Thank you, we will definitely be back!
We had a delicious meal at La Cassita. My favourite was the Aubergine dish. Being vegetarian I had a good choice on the menu. our only problem was we ordered too much ! We started with bread and Balsamic vinegar which was gorgeous, then had no room for everything else we ordered. The patatas bravas is a generous portion so should have left the bread, but it was all very tasty. Service was great aswell.
