Such a nice, cosy little place with good food and a great atmosphere. The staff were all friendly and warm and clearly enjoy what they do. The tapas was delicious and the sangria was almost too good! Definitely worth a visit.

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.
