Excellentl!!!

Lovely lunch today in relaxing surroundings. One concern is that the menu has no details about allergies or intolerances. Furthermore the really pleasant waitress had no idea which dishes contained gluten and came back from the kitchen with only two choices. I opted for Cajun chicken which was... read more

We have eaten at Wildes on three separate occasions whilst visiting York, once as a couple, once with friends and most recently as a large family group. Each time has been magnificent! It is now my 'must visit' when I go to York. All of the people we have taken there are now as taken with it as us. I... More

Wildes is a small central bistro. It can be found down an alley (known as a Snickleway in York!)that links Grape Lane to the historic Stonegate. Situated over two floors (the small upstairs seating area has views of the rooftops and York Minster). It is simply decorated with no frills but this adds to its charm. Although the menu is... More

Named for the famous wit, novelist and playwright, Oscar Wilde, this cafè bar aims to provide the kind of atmosphere and surroundings which Wilde may have experienced in bohemian France in his last days. Downstairs is dark, cosy and decorated in Art Nouveau stained glass. Upstairs takes advantage of a skylight to provide an indoor version of Parisian street cafes.... More

Our hosts for the weekend decided to take us to Wildes for a drink on Sunday as a stop during our exploring of York. Not sure what to expect we were very pleasantly surprised at the quaint eatery / bar. The food served at the tables around us looked so good and scrumptious that our impromptu drink turned into an...

Eaten here a few times now and the food has always been good. Had a warm chicken pitta with salad today whilst sat outside in the sunshine which was gorgeous! A lovely independent bar tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Also a great place to go with friends for drinks! Would definitely recommend!

Down in York for a couple of nights and ended up in Wilde's yet again. We have eaten here quite a few times now and never had anything but a really good experience. The service is really friendly and we love the atmosphere of the place.
