We had many fabulous meals at the original El Gato Negro in Ripponden but this was our first trip to Leeds. Very clean & COVID secure even checking that we were all from the same household. I like the idea of the Sunday lunch platter and while it was very tasty it was a bit short of veg - especially some greens. The mushroom Wellington was also delicious but quite pricey at £13 for 2 portobello mushrooms. Love the restaurant, the menu and the food but there’s a lot of great quality competition in Leeds and you’re going to need to assess your prices and be more creative with your offerings to get people to come back repeatedly.

We visited previously shortly after you opened and weren’t particularly impressed but we decided to give it another go and we’re pleased to say the food was much improved on this occasion. The prawns in particular were some of the best we’ve had.

Always tasty tapas. Just the right level of service (helpful but not intrusive), and the covid-19 measures seem good, but the main thing is the delicious food.

Our food came very slowly and some of it was colder than I would have liked. We complained at the end to a manager and she handled the complaint really well and gave us our drinks for free which I appreciated. I would have preferred if it had been acknowledged before this that our food was arriving slowly and if someone had apolosiged rather than waiting until the end after we had eaten.
