4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had read very positive review on TA and wasn't disappointed. Excellent food, including some lovely fish options on the menu. Very welcoming and friendly service. The restaurant was busy, but still felt intimate with two of us there for dinner. Above average price point, but absolutely worth it for a special occasion or treat.

Don't go expecting chips which I'm sure you won't! A lovely intimate place to eat with a great atmosphere. Make sure you go knowing that it is on the expensive side but then you do get what you pay for. The food was delicious. Wine was just perfect. All in all a most enjoyable meal.

What an amazing surprise - this place should have a Michelin Star. Imaginative food, beautifully presented. We were there for the Early Bird meal and it was fantastic value. Excellent service and ambience,

The food was excellent and exceeded my expectations. A simple menu with clear ideas on refinement and balance. The waiter and wine list, which is encyclopaedic, accommodated me amply and the lack of pretentiousness in such an exceptional family run restaurant meant I was a very satisfied diner.

I adore this restaurant and it is my first choice for special occasions even though it's 60 miles away. Food is Michelin star standard without the price tag. Staff are incredibly knowledgeable and super friendly . For such a beautiful fine dining restaurant they really make my young children welcome, who have visited since they were babies in high chairs... More

This is a small, family run restaurant, not far from the centre of York. We booked a table due to the positive comments on Tripadvisor and were very glad we did. The staff are lovely and the owner really knows her wines and is very helpful. The food was really lovely, and we both had the hake with peas and... More

We visited last night for dinner and were blown away by the food and value for money. The little extras such as canapés (we didn't order starters) and a little dish of desserts (after we had ordered desserts) were lovely touches. Such a shame we live in London as we'd love to visit again. Definitely a must visit for anyone... More

We had a 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. It was of a great value and amazing quality and presentation. I have nothing wrong to say about this place. The staff is very knowledgeable and polite. They answered all our questions and were very attentive. The peas purreé was divine and very original dish.

Thank sis10077
