La Tasca [map], John Street, should help you to get
in a romantic mood as this intimate Spanish restaurant
is always packed with couples. With 33 different
kinds of Tapas, you can share dishes with your partner
or go for a huge and heart-warming Paella and keep it

Alternatively, head to Brio [map], Commercial Street,
which offers a truly tempting dining experience. Brio
is frequented by the wealthier people of Harrogate so
expect to part with a lot of cash.
Here you can choose from a real mixture of Italian, Chinese, Thai and just about every other
kind of food the masterful chef chooses to put on the
menu and then sit back and enjoy some of the best cuisine
you’ve ever tasted.
Biro is particularly perfect for those heading to Harrogate
