Melton's is not the sort of place that you would easily notice. it is in a plain, quiet residential area and doesn't, itself, have the looks that would appeal if you didn't already know something about it. But don't be fooled by appearances this is a friendly, welcoming restaurant providing really good food. This might look like a just a... More

Can fully recommend this restaurant as they accommodated a group of 5 of us. So many different flavours and innovative takes on traditional dishes. All ingredients were fresh. Looks nice and clean as well. Service good as well

Visited Meltons for a post graduation lunch on a very hot day. Delightful restaurant with great air conditioning. The food was absolutely sublime - I had a wonderful lovage and parmesan bread and butter pudding as a main and the puddings were utterly delicious - especially the raspberry soufflé. Very friendly and welcoming service and the prices were extremely reasonable.... More

Oh the bliss of a restaurant that puts the same effort into its vegetarian meals as the others! Excellent food, both veggie and otherwise and great value lunch deal especially when it includes home made bread, water and an amuse bouche. Pleasant and efficient service and only a few minutes walk from the Castle. Would definitely recommend.

Brunch on a Sunday morning should be a leisurely affair but not this slow. The service at Melton's was awful although the waiter was very helpful. I know we were a large group (well 9) but we had booked a table well in advance and there was nobody else in the restaurant. The order was taken and our drinks arrived,... More

Our group of four had four excellent meals. Great fish, great pork, great everything. The service was low-key but attentive, and very knowledgable. The wines were good too. This is one of the best restaurants in York.

Small restaurant outside city walls. Food was not overly ambitious, was well prepared and tasty. Service was friendly. Wines were attractively priced with useful recommendations. Price was very correct.

In York for the day and wondering where to eat lunch for a change, I picked Melton's from the GFG. It's a bit of a walk from the city centre, and I must admit if I hadn't been looking for it I'd have walked straight past. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at about 12.30, which worried me slightly.... More

Nice out of the way restaurant serving up delicious food! We dined at Melton's on a Thursday evening and enjoyed each course. Our hostess was very knowledgeable about wine and each menu item. We eat at some of the best restaurants in London, and Melton's is right up there with big city dining.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner but we would have preferred a bit less imagination for each item. We suggest that people review the menu before booking to be sure the unique preparation suits their tastes.
