Wasn't too sure about here, but read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go on a Sunday evening. It's a big venue, so could have lacked atmosphere especially on a Sunday night! Had a pre dinner cocktail which was good. The venue looks as though it's from the 30s, it's been done very well. The food... More

I have eaten here several times over the years and the food is always excellent. Last night was very quiet, the quietest I've every seen but it was Sunday evening! We still received great service and great food. For both the starter and main I are fish and it was delicious. The quality and the presentation is wonderful. I always... More

It is a great restaurant so why 4 stars. It is noisy and the fact that it is full of chatting people means it's going to be noisy but please turn the music down! The building is wonderful - Art Deco pastiche but extremely well done. Friendly staff and good food. I had exceptional belly pork with black pudding and... More

Notwithstanding the less than glamorous location Bibis looks smart and upmarket whilst inside it is a Tardis of a place but still with plenty of intimate corners. Definitely a cut above the normal city centre Italian. It was so good we went back the following night and did not need to spend a fortune on either occasion for a super... More

Booked a table for 20:15 on a Friday night but arrived about an hour before to sample the cocktail lounge. The decor of the whole place is stunning. The place was packed with drinkers and diners, some large groups as well which always leads to "boisterous" behaviour, so it was quite noisy. Atmosphere good though and prices at the bar... More

Good place to go, nice inside, clean toilets, interiore classy without being tacky. For such a big restaurant the food is good. Waiters are nearly all Italian who do there jobs well. You can see whats going on in the kitchen, which is always a plus, very polite and friendly. I always go there when I am in Leeds, used... More
