Meltons is my top choice in York for consistently excellent & elegant food. The room itself is small & intimate without being cramped; staff are efficient, well-informed & charming. The menu always presents imaginative seasonal choices, & locally-sourced suppliers are named, which is a nice touch. On a recent visit, the salad of beets, leaves & soft goats cheese was... More

Ate here on a Saturday night from the Early Bird offer. Great service from start to finish, personal service, excellent choice of food and wine. Food presented beautifully and excellent quality. Highly recommended and much better than other restaurants in town. A must!

Meltons is slightly off the main tourist drag but I ventured the walk there tempted by other reviews. I am glad that I did. Two of us had an excellent lunch from an interesting menu. All well cooked and presented. And good value too. It was not however very busy so the atmosphere lacked buzz. Maybe it perks up in... More

A pleasant evening dinner of subtle charm by the front of house and delicacy from the kitchen. Our return to Melton's and the upstairs room with only five tables gave a more intimate atmosphere to a birthday treat. We were seated directly but then had a short wait for a drink from the bar. Food from a reassuringly short menu... More

Great food, great staff, great wine, great atmosphere. Wonderful evening. We went for a birthday celebration and the owner guided us to our table where a prearranged bottle of bubbly was waiting for us along with a few tasty nibbles. No grumbles what so ever.

Meltons is one of York's best dining experiences. If you like the Blue Bicycle then I advise you to try this restaurant to. Great bistro cuisine and an excellent wine list. The waiting staff are attentive and very personable. I've also been here for lunch was was also a great experience although I think this restaurant is better suited to... More

We have visited Melton's once a year for many years, and I think the place gets better every time. We were a largish party and had the upstairs to ourselves. The meal was perfectly paced, the wine was good and the very helpful staff were patient and pleasant. The stars of the night food wise for me were the ham... More

Had a meal there last night, couldn't fault any thing at all. Thankfully, we were upstairs in the quieter part of the restaurant as it was very busy (and this on a Tuesday) downstairs. we all had different food which universally was good plus being well presented and served. All the staff were helpful and knowledgeable, not a trait you... More
