Description: On Walmgate, within moments of the city���s favourite tourist attractions, shops and sights, is Meltons Too. The sister restaurant of the critically acclaimed Meltons, Too is a larger, more laid back brasserie style affair. Set in an historic 17th Century building, the restaurant is full of character outside and in, where exposed brick walls and wooden floors are set with coloured chairs and wooden bistro tables. With a fresh, European flavour the menu uses regional and seasonal produce; offering brunches and lunches as well as dinner and a yummy selection of tapas for sharing. Meltons Too has been named the "best eating place of the year 2009" in the York tourism awards.

“An excellent place for a meal with fab real ale!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We have eaten here a few times recently and have found it very good. It is a nice bistro type place in York City Centre that also serves real ale. I like the way you can have 3 glasses of each type (a third of a pint in each) if you are not sure what to choose!

The food was always excellent quality when we went and we mostly have been for sunday lunches.
We have always found the service to be very good and you can either sit downstairs in the bar area or take a table upstairs for a nice meal.
We will definitely be returning soon!

“Lovely Food, will be returning again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Have been to Meltons too multiple times and the food is always delicious. I recently visited because I had a birthday club voucher entitling me to a free three course meal (there's no catch its great!). All the food we had was delicious and it arrived very speedily, the starter was at our table within under 5-10 minutes of ordering! The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting york.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

This is not a place I can recommend and will not be going back. They have a strange take on some traditional dishes which don't work. Service mediocre

“Our second visit & there will be a third!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

The atmosphere is friendly, we were not hurried, there is a good choice of food, there's something to suit everyone, prices are reasonable and staff pleasant. A great place for ladies who like to lunch!

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten at Melton's Too on a number of occasions and have always had a good meal in a pleasant setting. Visited with 5 friends and colleagues on Friday 29 November and had a very disappointing evening. We all chose from the specials menu, as the daily selection can usually be guaranteed to be good. In the event we were badly mistaken. The Yorkshire rarebit starter was soggy and tasteless and the merguez sausage tagine was seriously overlooked and dry. Above all, the service was awful. We waited 40 minutes for our main course, which was certainly not worth the wait. The restaurant was VERY full, but a well-established place like this should be geared up to cope with a full house, especially in the run up to Christmas. I am afraid I will not be keeping this one on my list of York places to go.
