For a place that doesn't feature a great deal on the internet it's quite a hidden gem. The food and service is good and value for money.
If spending the remainder of the evening downstairs in the bar then ear plugs are necessary!

Brilliant food and even better service. Took a group of visiting colleagues here to sample 'yorkshire' food and it got rave reviews.

Absolutely amazing food. Excellent quality, great Yorkshire take on tapas, flavours are fabulous. Service is really good, very friendly and all good value for money, prices are very reasonable for what you get.
Music from the bar downstairs is played loud enough to enjoy but but not too loud to be able to have a conversation.
Highly recommend this place. Loved it

This place is a great venue. We ate early at around 8pm, the service was excellent, and the food was amazing, I particularly enjoyed the curry tapas - so many flavours. The music being played was also my cup of tea, blues/funk, and made our visit a real experience. Highly recommended.

The Yorkshire tapas is placed above the blues cafe bar round the corner from Bettys in Harrogate. It’s a small restaurant with around 6 tables and usually a couple of members of staff. The food was lovely and Yorkshire inspired but was a bit on the salty side with some of the selections which did put a downer on the food. Alongside asking 3 times for a drink and not receiving it the entire time sat at the table as it was forgotten and therefore going the whole meal without one. The staff were pleasant and overall it was a nice experience but one I may not return to.

I can't review as they couldn't fulfil our booking. We were told we had "booked too late" on arrival and had about a 40% chance of getting a table if we waited 30 mins. So if you want to go suggest calling rather than booking via OpenTable!

Not what we were expecting when we arrived. It's a busy pub downstairs but upstairs was much quieter and the food was amazing. I can recommend the bloody Mary's also....

Amazing place!
We sat upstairs in the booth facing the window. The music was on downstairs and we could hear it at the right volume, it wasn't too loud. The staff made sure we always had drinks.
The food was perfect , large portion sizes than the typical tapas.
The atmosphere was lively. We didn't go anywhere else we stayed there most of the evening!
Would definitely reccomend and will be returning soon.

This is my third visit to the Yorkshire tapas and yet again was highly impressed. There wasn’t a dish we chose that wasn’t delicious. The menu is really quirky with a twist on Spanish tapas, we were all wowed ! We will definitely be back again on our next Harrogate weekend.

The food was excellent, the service very friendly and efficient and the beer was equally good. A very pleasant place to spend a lunchtime.
We walked down from Harlow Carr through the Valley Gardens so the location was excellent, I would highly recommend it if you want a pleasant stroll and good food in the Harrogate area.

Knowledgeable staff, good drink selection, particularly gin and warm welcome.
There was a relaxed vibe and the live blues band playing downstairs added to the atmosphere. Perfect for a casual night out ...and the small plates were perfect for sharing and trying different styles

Nice place to be and the guy serving was friendly. Really enjoyed the background music. The food though should have been better. Everything was heavily over salted. The garlic bread had so much salt on it we couldn’t eat it. Perhaps the wine list should be extended too with a cheaper offering as they were all priced at £19.95 which I feel is too expensive.

Superb Yorkshire take on classic Spanish tapas - Yorkshire Chorizo, taties braves & lots more! All delicious & v well presented. Friendly, relaxed staff & a casual venue above the famous Blues Bar in Harrogate - live music below in the bar but not obtrusive at all.
