    This is a hidden gem in Leeds!. Beautiful food, Great Atmosphere, Hot Latin Music!.Brilliant service! Highly recommended!... If you're looking to celebrate with friends this Restaurant is the place to be. Join in with Latin dancing later on! We will definitely be returning! Excellent Service! Thankyou Columbiana!

    Went for the pre-theatre menu. Good value for money and good portion size. Arrived when hardly anyone in but soon filled up with good ambience. Would go back.

    Small & cosy. Had the pre-dinner menu which was good value although the portions were small and wouldn't satisfy some appetites e.g 2 meatballs for a main course. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.

    Lovely food at Casa Columbiana! We really enjoyed our meals and on our next visit would like to try the A la Carte menu to sample some other delicious dishes!

We say…

Praised as being one of the most colourful eateries in town, Casa Colombiana is an authentic Latin American coffee house, restaurant and bar situated in the Grand Arcade; perfectly situated for those visiting the Grand Theatre & Opera House, with a pre-theatre menu readily available too! 

Relaxed and with a feel-good holiday atmosphere, Casa Colombiana is a friendly and comfortable setting that can cater to all. Terracotta paint, warm lighting and plenty of greenery combine to bring a sense of summer into the city, whatever the weather outside. The restaurant is full of character, with Spanish music playing in the background that sets the scene for the food itself. 

For starters, favourites include the patacones con carne, fried plantain topped with pulled beef, and the papas fritas chunky chips with homemade salsa. If you fancy more than one, sharing platters are a great feature of the menu that allow you to try lots of dishes: the mixed platter featuring chorizo, empanadas, grilled chicken and mini arepas is a great choice. For your main course, go for the arroz con camarones, prawns cooked risotto style, served with fresh salad, or the house special dish bandeja paisa featuring minced beef, chorizo, belly pork, plantain and rice topped with a fried egg and avocado. There's also a set lunch menu and a pre theatre menu, perfect for those day tripping in the city or going to an evening show. 

Don't miss out on the authentic drinks on offer on the menu: postobon manzana - Colombian apple juice - and Guarana - a tonic fruit drink - are just two of the eclectic soft drinks on offer. There's also a range of beers of offer, including Aguila, Devassa and Quilmes. Not forgetting Casa Colombiana's signature Colombian coffee, roasted and ground on site!

Complete the Casa Colombiana experience with a visit to their upstairs cocktail bar: here they host salsa classes as well as DJs on weekend nights and the occasional live music set. 

An authentic and exciting dining experience with a welcoming atmosphere that will encourage you to take your time and soak up everything the restaurant has to offer, Casa Colombiana is a hidden gem that should definitely not be missed if you're in Leeds.
