Great place. A mixed review this time. Fabulous food. Perhaps the food could have arrived a little slower or staggered. We felt that we didn't have enough time to relax before the next food arrived so it was perhaps a little mor rushed than last time we visited. However, it was very busy so there is certainly no criticism at... More

This really is a gem of a restaurant,friendly staff,great atmosphere and excellent food. As a fan of Spanish food I am often underwhelmed when trying Tapas restaurants but not here, the food is of the highest quality and authentic. If you've not been or not tried Tapas give this place a visit, you will love it.

I would advise booking as it is quite small and easily fills up. We had a good meal here - the padron peppers were the highlight (salty, tasty but different). The rest of the tapas were very good but not exciting: lemon king prawns, haddock and prawn croquettes and salmon and goats cheese on bread. We also had two dishes... More

Love this place, a real traditional Spanish tapas restaurant run by excellent Spanish staff. The food is beautiful, full of flavours and an excellent choice to choose from. Very good value too, less than £50 for the 2 of us and that included drinks. This was our second time her and we'll definitely be back again.....

I'm always a bit dubious about Tapas as my grandmother is Spanish, but El Bareto is the best one we've ever been to. Situated on the outskirts of Chapel Allerton, it's pretty hard to notice unless you know where you're going - it hosts a small seating area outside which is great for summer evenings in the sunshine. Inside, at... More

Wow wow wow, impeccable service. Shaun was fantastic, very helpful and explained to me and my partner how the menu worked along with the suggested number of tapas. Now the food, the food was the best food that I have ever had in my 35 years on this planet. Very good quality, very flavoursome, like a taste explosion in my... More

Me and my friend visited here after driving past it several times thinking that it looked like a little hidden Gem. We ended up going back the week after because it was just that good! We ordered lots of little plates to share and we were not disappointed. The service was great, the wine was delicious and the food was... More

Really great place to go, a hidden gem on the edge of Chapel Allerton... Had a drink at the bar to start, great selection of wines and beers available. Then escorted to the restaurant downstairs, lovely atmosphere and great ambience, had a laugh with the waiter Sean who I thought was outstanding. Really good food and lively small dishes to... More

Really enjoyed my 1st visit here and will definately return and recommend to others. The service from Shaun was excellent, advised us on the menu and he even recommended that we remove some items from our order as we'd have too much food (6 greedy lads after a few pints think they can eat a lot!) This was very good... More

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.
