I really enjoy dining Spanish style and this well recommended restaurant had proven difficult to reserve a table at previously. My wife and I were lucky to get a table for 4 of us just over 1 week ago and we had a most enjoyable...More

The food and service here is terrible, my wife and I went a few weeks ago for some simple tapas dishes when they arrived everything was frozen cheap food tasteless and unappetising. Couldn’t even attempt to eat a few of the dishes after trying them...More

El Bareto is a little out of chapel allerton...but only a short walk up to the main bars. I have eaten there twice and had amazing food and would definately go back. The last time was a little unorganised with the ordering. We were asked...More

Best tapas food around, tastes as good as the tapas you have in Spain. Something for everyone, lovely cosy feel to the restaurant and wonderful atmosphere. Would 100% recommend.

Wooden benches and stools with shabby thin cushions do not make for a comfortable dining experience. They may fit in with the rustic decor but do not encourage you to linger (perhaps that's the point). Food average ranging from heavy-handed crude flavourings to rather bland...More

Always feel so lucky to have this gem locally. Just great food and a lovely house red. Can’t afford to do it all the time but not a bad way to spend a Wednesday at 6 o’clock!

I have been here twice now, both for special occasions and have not been let down. The waiting staff are always there to help you with your choices, it’s quite funny to feel you are being marked on your ordering skills! The food is always...More

No I'm sorry, it has very steep stairs to get to the restaurant downstairs. You can ask to eat upstairs as it has wheelchair access but its very busy!

Tapas from my Grannies Recipes in a hand built bar and restaurant we made ourselves. We like to think we have brought a little bit of Spain, a traditional taverna, with us to Leeds. With Live acoustic music every Tuesday in our cosy downstairs restaurant, and music through out the week. Pablo and Yeyo offer as authentic Tapas as it is possible to find in a unique little restaurant. You can relax in the bar after a hard days work, or maybe outside and enjoy a glass of specially selected Spanish wine.
