Last night my other half and I had a wonderful meal at Melton's. The menu is a bit beyond our budget (main courses start at £16.70), but the lunchtime and early bird offer (2 courses for £23, or 3 courses for £26) makes it more affordable, and it's nice that you can choose anything from the menu for this price....

Melton's food was possibly one of the best restaurant meals I have ever had. My partner and I both ordered scallops and then pork with a bottle of wine. Each time our food appeared, the head waiter would explain the various elements on our plate so that we knew what we were eating. Fantastic food and will definitely be returning... More

The menu is fantastic and the service is second to none. We chose the 5 course Yorkshire Taster menu, with the wine flight. The food really is fantastic and... More

Simply the best restaurant in York. The staff are friendly and know exactly which wine to go with what you've ordered. The food is excellent and presented beautifully. The fact the food is locally sourced is an added bonus. Would definitely recommend and return.

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!
