Went to lucia Beverly on Tuesday and gave it a 5. Came to York last night and equally as good. Cant fault it. Risotto was perfect and that's no easy thing.

We stopped by for a meal on Saturday evening. I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and this time my hubby and I brought my niece and her hubby. We had to wait for a table however as usual we didn't have to wait for the full length of time initially expected. Great choice of tapas to choose from... More

Me and my boyfriend went to York for my 21st birthday weekend... We had read such fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor that we decided to give it a try, having never been to York before I was clueless on where to go, but I have to say that the drinks and food were just spot on and definitely faultless. As the... More

Was recommended as a good place to have cocktails with good food. Busy but got a table for cocktails upstairs good choice on the cocktail menu. We're seated to dine downstairs after about an hour. The food was delicious and served fairly quickly.

We have eaten at Lucia's in Beverley before and thoroughly enjoyed our experience and so we decided to give the York restaurant a try. It has outside seating which is not all that common in the city centre. We chose a selection of tapas dishes and were so disappointed. This was the poorest tapas I have eaten any where, with... More

We went upstairs to the cocktail bar and had Agee up there before ordering food. The cocktails are fantastic as are the bar staff, really chatty and friendly. Food was good and arrived within 20 minutes at the most. Loved it, will be going again
