My wife and I often visit York and have seen this restaurant slightly hidden just off a busy side street several times. On a recent visit to York we decided to have lunch there and had a really good and very reasonably priced meal. I had chicken and chorizo pasta which was slightly spicy and very tasty, and my wife had chicken and mushroom kebab which was cooked to perfection. Both main courses from the a la carte menu were less than £10, desert, coffees and half a litre of house wine brought the bill to £33. The service was friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was almost full, and it was great to be able to sit outside under the heaters.

Food was excellent quality just a shame about the service.
Asked to sit outside and made to feel like we were a nuisance. When ordering a drink- tuts and looks given that made us feel uncomfortable. Food given to us in force not placed in front of us and when we ask to speak to someone about the service the supervisor came over and spoke to us in front of the staff in question and said all she has had previously is positive comments and was very dismissive. She had no idea how to handle the situation. No comment on our service today. We then asked for the bill which was thrown at is by the supervisor who we made our complaint to. Overall bad experience at a restaurant we have all previously enjoyed and has made us question if we would dine again!

A nice restaurant tucked away in a side street. There is a heated courtyard to eat in and some brave diners were eating outside on the damp February afternoon that we visited. There is a nice ambiance to the place. The price is reasonable and the staff pleasant and efficient. We had a sharing platter of cured meats, and a seafood pasta, mushroom and chicken pasta and risotto dishes. All cooked well and tasty. The place is child friendly and we had a leisurely meal without feeling hurried. Would recommend.

It was a busy lunch and for a Monday that's encouraging. Service was really good. My partner had a burger a little dry & rather char grilled but in a fresh bun. I had a steak sandwich which was nice but a small amount of steak. Both came with frozen chips. It was inexpensive & prompt so left a tip. Not remarkable but fine.
