We went here on a recent stay in York. The food was really good. It was fairly expensive for two, with the bill being £109 although that did include 2 bottles of wine. (oops) The décor is ready for a make over which is why I only rated it 'very good' - on the food alone it would have been... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday last night, we ate from the al'carte menu and OH MY GOD it was delicious. Every mouthful was divine, washed down with a very nice Rose champagne!! You must visit here, you won't regret it :)

We took pot luck on 31 Castlegate for lunch, never having been to the restaurant before. We were in the area and just popped in - we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, and the service was good. Main courses are about £11 each. The restaurant is just outside the York Museum, and can be recommended.

One of our regular restaurants when visiting family in York. Very good food and excellent value, not to mention the attentive but not over powering service. Very comfortable atmosphere and good choice of wine. If you are in York and looking for a great meal, this is one of the top spots.

I love this restaurant! The food is excellent, staff friendly and efficient, and the early bird deal is brilliant. Well worth a visit ,and if you come by car the Castle Car Park literally couldn't be closer!

Nice ambiance in a high ceiling room. All the food we had was great. We also got the early bird special which was a good deal. The sea bass and duck confit were good to the last morsel. The staff were very nice and attentive.
