Best tapas restaurant in Leeds. Food is delicious, cocktails amazing and the staff and atmosphere are perfect. Highly recommended, cannot wait to go back soon.
My first visit with a group of friends for a birthday. I have to say this is already now my favourite tapas in Leeds and would definitely recommend. Love the venue, small and cosy and the food is fresh and very friendly staff. Can’t wait to visit again.
Excellent great food good menu. Nice good priced wine list . Service excellent . Great atmosphere good crowd . Wine and service . Afogato fab not rushed
Very welcoming, staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the courses. We were entertaining clients who loved the experience, we had a great evening thank you
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,
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.
We visited at 6pm on Wednesday evening the restaurant had a lovely vibe about it. We were warmly greeted and then seated. The service was extremely good and they recommended a few dishes. The food was of the highest quality and very well presented when served, I’d certainly recommend the fish and chorizo dishes. Overall this was an authentic tapas experience and certainly the best I’ve had in Leeds. I will return again.
Great atmosphere, great food and great service! Can't fault the restaurant and the prices were pretty good too. The food was full of flavour and not too greasy, my only feedback would be that it would be nice to have a few more vegetarian options that don't have animal rennin in them (but I still felt I had enough to eat while I was there!)
