We were delighted to find that rather than having a limited early bird menu,we could choose whatever we wanted from the a la carte. Plus although we were supposed to be out by 7:45pm, we were allowed to linger over our (complementary) coffees and brownies. The meal itself was outstanding. Local ingredients superbly cooked and creatively combined, the 'loose chicken... More

After a gap of more than 20 years we decided to give York's allegedly best restaurant a try.Being constantly in the top food guides, it must be doing something right after all! So, firstly, the food. We all found the January menu rather underwhelming. Nevertheless, the choices proved to be ok - nothing, though, that elicited murmurs of approval. My... More

We are regular but not frequent visitors to Meltons and have been for years. Every time we have visited the food has been excellent. We make a point of visiting pre Christmas for a treat and have never been disappointed. Last night was no exception. After canapes and amuse bouche I had mille faille of squash with labneh and granola.... More

Melton's is one of the restaurants in York that we keep going back to because everything they've ever done for us has been done to perfection. Their food is excellent and they're really friendly too. Be sure to ask their advice on which wine to go for as they want you to enjoy everything. They're just off the up and... More

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

Not v impressive from the exterior and the interior coud do with updating. The food mebu is quite limited in choice but the wine menu makss up for it. The food itself is what this place is about. Absolutely lovely and nothing to complain about. Worth a try and the food is reasonably priced for the standard

We ate here recently and I must share our thoughts and recommend Melton's to others. The restaurant is located a short walk from the city centre and is very nicely decorated. 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.
