We say…

Platillo’s restaurant is located on the vibrant and beautiful Leopold Square; the premier destination for diners across Sheffield. With such a wealth of restaurants beckoning guests in from the cold, it is not always easy to choose a venue however; Platillo’s is a good place to start.

Bursting on to the scene in 2009, Platillo’s won ‘Best Tapas Menu’ and ‘Restaurateurs Restaurant of the Year’ that very year. Since then, the restaurant has gained a huge loyal customer base who flock to the restaurant daily to enjoy the delicious Mediterranean and Latin American-inspired tapas on offer.

The restaurant itself combines a unique blend of rustic and highly modern décor. The exposed floor boards add a rustic twist to a room decorated with bright citrus colours. The effect is welcoming and warm as exposed brick work is broken up by blocks of zesty yellow, vibrant reds and soothing greens. With a separate lounge bar area complete with comfortable leather seating, Platillo’s is brilliant for relaxing with a drink and a couple of tapas dishes or going for an all-out feast with friends and family.

As a tapas restaurant, Platillo’s offers diners the opportunity to choose a large number of small plates to share within the group, or to enjoy as an individual with several dishes per person. This gives reign to an abundance of flavours and lends itself to party bookings where dishes can be brought out over a period of time; encouraging sharing and creating a vibrant atmosphere.

There are five sections to the menu which includes breads and dips and mezze plates, meat, fish, skewers and a huge array of vegetarian dishes. There is also a choice of set menus where you can let the experts do the choosing for you as you relax and let Platillo’s take you on a journey of flavours. From the meat section, dishes such as cassoulet, a hearty pork stew with Toulouse sausage, chorizo, confit of duck, cannelloni and berlotti beans in a  tomato sauce; or the spicy lamb tagine are excellent choices. The red mullet escabeche or pan-fried seabass are must-tries for seafood lovers and grilled goats cheese, stuffed vine leaves, Moroccan spiced sweet potatoes and Greek salad are just some of the options available for vegetarians.

With a ‘share what you love’ ethos, Platillo’s Sheffield is perfect for large groups of friends and parties to enjoy delicious flavours and try a bit of everything. With a refreshing and fun dining concept, Platillo’s will reward you with a fun atmosphere, plenty of conversation and a memorable meal, every time.

    Overall:

    My daughter picked this restaurant for her graduation celebration. Leopold Square is lovely little Oasis off the main shopping street in Sheffield. There is a downstairs bar, where we got pre-meal cocktails prepared by a lovely chatty lady bartender. The restaurant is upstairs, where the staff were also very friendly and helpful. We had a selection of tapas, all of which were very tasty. The house red wine was good and very reasonably priced for a restaurant. The only downside was a very restricted dessert menu, but it wouldn't deter us from going again to Platillos in Sheffield.

    Overall:

    had the early bird menu on a busy Thursday night at platillos, 3 tapas dishes and a dessert for £12. I love tapas so much as it is a wonderful way of trying new dishes without commiting to one thing. The lamb tagine was to die for and the patatas bravas wernt bad either! Slight downside was that they didnt have the cheesecake i wanted but not too much bother. Decided togo for the baklava which i had never had before and it was beautiful. Probably very bad for the body but it was delish! good evening, good food and a great atmosphere
