We took a short taxi ride to this place from city centre. We were warmly welcomed and service was attentive and friendly throughout. The food was superb - flavours fresh and vibrant from crab starter to a magnificent hot raspberry souffle to finish. All choices we delicious. We highly recommend it!

Very nice food, fresh, tasty and very well decorated! The atmosphere was very nice as well! Definitely recommend it for a special night out! Just keep in mind that the portions are quite small, especially for the main course.

Really great restaurant just outside the main centre of York. A fantastic tasting menu and accompanying wine flight really showed off the seasonal ingredients.

My boyfriend and I booked a table here for Valentine's Day and it was honestly, the most amazing experience I've had whilst dining! The service was immaculate, I could not fault it. We ordered the tasting menu, which was advertised as 5 courses with a wine flight - we ended up having 7 courses due to canapés and nibbles! The... More

this is a real find - great food, awesome menu using locally sourced materials and a wine list that has to be almost unique !!! Fortunately we had an expert with us who picked white wines from both Portugal & amazing Greece, that was just beautiful. The service was exemplary and the knowledge of the products and wines was astounding,... More

Our small party enjoyed eating at Meltons on Saturday night. Great to find somewhere of such a high standard in York. We had the most delicious food all beautifully presented. The wine list was good too so we ate and drank very well indeed! The service was friendly, quick and efficient.
