This is a fantastic little bar/restaurant. No frills but a fantastic atmosphere, unlike anywhere else in Leeds. The food Is great. You can sit in the restaurant downstairs and have a full meal or simply snack on tapa in the bar upstairs which is always our choice.

We visited El Bareto for the first time with another couple based on their recommendation. The place has a real cost and authentic Spanish feel to it, it didn't feel like we were in Leeds at all! All the staff were really helpful and friendly which definitely went with the vibe of the restaurant. It was really easy to order... More

My wife and I made our first visit here last week and will definitely be going back. You are greeted with a great selection of premium Spanish beers on draught and some excellent Spanish wine. The barman/waiter (possibly owner?) was extremely friendly and welcoming and we were seated within 5 mins at our table. The menu is well laid out... More

Been hanging out at El Bareto for nearly 4 years now. I really love it. Specially the selection of Spanish beers. Recently added Alhambra 1925 which is a great strong beer. All staff is kind and very customer orientated. Food wise, yummy Spanish tapas with an English touch to meet all tastes. If you go to El Bareto, you very... More

The food was great atmosphere was good and price was fair similar to all the others we have eaten at all within £10 of each other. We will definitely book again and... More

My boyfriend took me here on Valentines Day and it was absolutely superb. From the minute we walked in we were welcomed with a wonderful "hello". The food was spectacular and what completely made my night was the live music provided by a female singer and a male guitarist. Although, I do think this was only because it was valentines... More

Having visited 5-6 Tapas restaurants in Leeds, this is probably my number 1. Very authentic, small, dark tapas restaurant which makes you feel like you are in Spain! The dishes we had were perfectly cooked and very very tasty! Great portions (especially the potato bravos!) and not too badly priced- although we did splash out on the steak and blue... 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.
