Reviews of Restaurants in York

Our most recent review:

Five star rating image L'antica Locanda Italian Restaurant

Great food, a great atmosphere and good service from a friendly host. All this and more makes for a fabulous night out in this small authentic Italian restaurant in the Shambles.

Five star rating image Meltons

Elizabeth Forbes says she had some great food for a reasonable price here, but shame on the waiting staff. Every time I have gone it has been top quality. 5 out of 5, one of the best in York in my opinion.

Five star rating image Rustique Restaurant

David siad it was worth top marks and good value. What more do you need from a good restaurant? Jane said she loved this spot. Also Mrs Woods tells us that here time in York was topped of by a great meal in this French styled establishment.

Four star rating image La Tasca

Ruth says she loves it and will be going for her next anniversary! Also Steve said he had a Top Night here.

Four star rating image Old Siam York - Thai Restaurant

Tony Bennett was most impressed but was pleased they booked the table. Many reviews consider this to be one of the best Thai restaurants they have eaten in. It has a great feel and smell as you enter. When the food comes, it is even more of a delight.

Four star rating image Delrios Italian

A Saturday evening and the place was full of chatter. A splendid meal of good food, great service. a good choice of wine was all to our liking. We will go again for sure, but miss out the cheese board next time.

Four star rating image Middlethorpe Hall Restaurant

Although the food is still great, Denise says it was not as "Divine!" as it used to be.

Four star rating image BoBo LoBo

Four star rating image Ate O'Clock Restaurant

Mandi had a meal here and had to write in about it, she made it sound very tempting as a choice of places to eat in York.

Three star rating image The Go Down Restaurant

Good portions, reasonable food, pleasant service, good value for money. This will not be a great meal but it should be good. Dry main courses and mysterious congealed cinnamon masses didn't help to be honest. Could do better. I think we might have hit them on a bad day.

Two star rating image The Mogul Tandoori

A late night tandoori can be had till very late here. Not bad, especially if you are hungry after a drink at 1am.

Two star rating image Silvanos

Change of location and change of ownership. Unfortunately this service and food still need to be much improved. 5 people on a quiet night the experience could have been better.

One star rating image Russells Restaurant Stonegate

Poor service and poor food when I went last, sorry and the bad reviews keep on coming in. A true gem, NOT!

The Maltings - Details of this pub that serves good pub food, real ales, imported beers, wines and malt whiskeys.

The Spurriergate Centre - Restaurant with good food, housed in a 12th Century church with beautiful stone and stained glass features.

Five star rating image J Baker's

Unfortunately this restaurant closed in July 2013. Farewell to the best Bistro in York. It had a good selection of modern English and European cuisine on the menu, using fresh local produce.
