Absolutely faultless, we went as a group of 8 for a birthday dinner, the service was outstanding, the food was sit was heavenly!! The pan fried seabass fillet on a bed of butternut squash and sage risotto was cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour. Between the 8 of us we ordered quite a range from the menu and everybody... More

Try this place, it has a wide seafood selection (plaice, oysters, fish soup, Nidderdale trout, scallops and prawn salad) which we made our selection from. I had local trout, perfectly cooked and served, with a green salad, while my wife had the scallops and really enjoyed them. We had a crisp sauvignon to go with them, and an espresso at... More

The new owners seem to have restored the D&M's status as a great little eatery after it went downhill for a while.

The restaurant came recommended and we were not disappointed. The three seafood appetizer sampler was a generous portion and an excellent way to start the meal. Overall the food was very good though pricey. The old world ambience was very appropriate to the historic town and helped make our visit to Harrogate special.

This is my second review. It is back to its best. It is rated about 60th in Harrogate, and, frankly, there simply are not 59 better restaurants. There may be a few, but not many. Good in every way.

Fantastic fish restaurant that never tires. Wine list is reasonable and the menu varies. Traditional decor, but a lovely atmosphere.
