Spanish

Pintura translates as ‘work of art’ and our aim is to paint an authentic portrait of Spanish tapas using traditional recipes and artisan ingredients combined with bold and modern flavour combinations.

Located in the heart of the city centre in Trinity (behind Marks and Spencers), we are set over four floors with vibrant décor evoking the feeling of San Sebastiàn and an intimate outdoor seating area.

    After booking this restaurant through OpenTable and receiving an email to confirm my booking only 2 days before, which I confirmed I would be attending. To travel and turn up for the restaurant to be closed and looking as if it had for some time! Not what was needed when trying to celebrate a birthday and therefore had to quickly find somewhere in Leeds at prime time on a Saturday night to eat!

    We arrived at the restaurant only to find it in darkness and closed, no notification from them to say it was closed, ruined our anniversary evening as trying to find a table in Leeds on a Saturday evening without a reservation is near impossible

    When we arrived the restaurant, it was closed. There was no sign on the door or any message sent to us from the restaurant. In fact we received a message the day before, asking us to confirm our table. This is clearly not a serious establishment, as they do not see fit to let their customers know that they have closed.

    I was appalled to find Pintura abandoned on the day & time I had booked a table. The restaurant had obviously closed recently but not only was I not informed, but I received an email only the day before asking if I was still planning to take my table. Open table have now asked me to review a restaurant that Is closed. Ridiculous. Have they gone out of business??

    Lovely food, well explained by a knowledgeable waitress. Tapas style of delivery explained ( if you didn’t know how it worked you’d be eating cold food) offered specials and bin end wines both of which were delicious. Thoroughly recommend 😊

    Having read impressive reviews of La Pintura I was expecting high quality, authentic Basque dishes in a cool restaurant with excellent service. Unfortunately, this was not what I experienced. Following a warm and professional welcome from the maitre d’ we then had a 10 minute wait for our cocktails and a further 15 minutes before we asked if we could order food. The tabla casa was in fact delicious and well presented, though showed no culinary skill - merely good choices of cheese and charcuterie. The brandade de bacalao barely tasted of fish at all (perhaps a smoked fish would lend a stronger flavour); the sweet peppers (from a jar) and the burnt edges of the toast completely overpowered any flavour of cod. The arroz de marisco was topped with delicious prawns (though still with head and shell on) but I’m glad I had my reading glasses with me to spot the tiny rice-sized slices of calimari. Worst of all was the patatas bravas, a Spanish basic - most of the cubes of potato were burnt on the outside and still crunchy raw in the middle. A particular Basque technique perhaps? This was a wedding anniversary meal out for us which involved sorting out babysitting, taxis and a train journey. La Pintura was a real let down. I can’t believe they offer a ‘gastronomic experience’ so customers can learn to replicate this food. The chef must have an opinion of himself even higher than the prices and as misjudged as other reviews.

    Really nice food in a convenient location. The staff are very helpful and friendly. But the food was fantastic. We went in on a Sunday evening so it was quite quiet. The staff happily went through the menu for us, having not been before it was good to know what was on the menu. Well priced for what it was as well so would recommend this to anyone who wants tapas in Leeds

    My husband and I booked a table here before going on to Leeds Grand Theatre. We started downstairs in the bar while we waited for our table as we were abit early. If you love gin then they have an extensive selection of gins. I tried a blueberry gin which was gorgeous. We were shown to our table on the 2nd floor. The service was excellent and we were looked after by a lovely young man. We ordered two starters from the special board. First they ran out of one of them and we were offered an alternative but then the second one had run out. To make amends we were given alternatives on the house. We started with gambas in tempura batter which were especially nice. We went to have a sweet potato dish which was the nicest sweet potatoes we had ever eaten. A crispy pork dish and another prawn dish with rice. All were freshly cooked and were excellent. We finished off with chocolate cheesecake and coffees. All in all a very enjoyable experience. We will definitely be returning.
