Set in the heart of the Leeds financial quarter, All Bar One provides an ideal refuge in which to take time out from the hurly burly of everyday life and indulge the senses. The restaurant's airy and contemporary interior is matched by the food, which combines the best qualities of modern and classic cuisine, prepared with skill, dexterity and care.

Our friendly and attentive waiter guided us through the menu, which provided global inspiration. We shared some world tapas plates, which were just too good to miss. The first offering was chargrilled lamb and courgette skewers marinated in soy, ginger and chilli. These were joined by fantastic tiger prawn skewers deep-fried in a coconut and wasabi tempura with a chilli dip. Finally, a Mediterranean flavour was evoked by the tapenade of olives with lemon and garlic on ciabatta, topped with a confit of peppers. It was a great start to the meal - beautifully cooked and presented, and clearly crafted from fine ingredients.

High standards were continued when we moved on to the main courses. A roasted flat mushroom and halloumi burger with aubergine and spiced tomato paté and relish was my companion's selection, whilst I had a 10z rib-eye steak, aged for 28 days and served with Café de Paris butter, confit of slow-roasted tomatoes and crispy fries. From the well-presented and thoughtfully balanced wine list, the Barolo Antologia, with its rich apricot, prune and cinnamon tones worked well.

Strawberries with clotted cream and Pimms syrup and chocolate brownie and marshmallow skewers with chocolate sauce rounded off the evening perfectly. We then reflected, as we sipped our cappuccinos, that there are few other places in Leeds where you can enjoy such a fine meal and service.
