Welcome to Kendells Bistro - French Restaurant

Kendells Bistro is opposite the Leeds College of Music, part of the thriving arts district in Leeds City Centre next to the West Yorkshire Playhouse, BBC Leeds and the new Northern Ballet Dance Theatre.

Kendell's Bistro is a casual Informal place to dine with the main focus on quality of food, wine and service within a French bistro atmosphere.

It’s relaxed, informal, no waiters topping up wine glasses after every sip, or sneaking up behind you with a six foot pepper mill. Cloth napkins but not starched, blackboard menus open plan kitchen, intimate cosy candles flickering friendly without pretence. In fact we are so French we don't have a service charge and we don't charge for bread either!
