“Lovely batter !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Wanted to try this place after a recommendation and it was lovely. Good menu but we had gone for fish and chips and were not disappointed. The fish was beautiful with a lovely light crisp batter. The service was superb and even though we were not sure how to get back out on the A64 to York we were given spot on directions. Now we have discovered it we will be back and hopefully have room for a pud !

“Don't be put off by the location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The food is much better than a McDonalds - freshly cooked food, friendly service. The outside looks bland, but it is really good inside. If you are travelleing between York & Leeds, go there! Message ends.

“Excellent Fare!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Triton's is on the way out of York and is part of the services incorporating a filling station and McDonaolds.
Although primarily a fish restaurant, the menu is fairly extensive with a good choice of alternative selections.
I ordered haddock and chips which has a choice of beans, peas or mushy peas and buttered bread (£11.00 with a pint of coke)
The meal arrived in a timely manner and was piping hot.
It was absolutley delicious and a far better choice than McDonalds!!
Staff were very pleasant and the overall ambience is excellent.

Well worth a visit and I will definiately return when next in York.

“Good food and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We had of course fish and chips but the menu is very large and some-thing for every-one.
The desserts are a huge surprise in a restaurant like this: what a choice and look wonderfully fresh. We had a pavlova and lemon meringue tart, both were excellent.
So our advice is to leave room for a dessert :-)

“A HIDDEN GEM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

My son and I are in the middle of a 2 week road-trip around Great Britain, when we happened to chance upon this restaurant on the A64 West of York. The food here was simply divine! So much so that we're coming back for more. Excellent service from all the staff including the owner who told us with pride how she gets the best fish & cooks it in the best oil. There was a lot of emphisis on the importance of acquiring top quality products with top quality cooking. So if you don't mind paying a couple more pounds for food that by far outwieghs the standards of your average "chippy" then this is the place to come. In my opinion, this restaurant has something that most businesses don't have... real integrity! Truly a hidden gem!!
