“Perfect Lunch”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Having read the excellent reviews my partner and I just had to try Dyls on our visit to York last weekend. We were certainly not disappointed. Dyl's is a quirky riverside cafe offering lovely lunches and drinks. We opted for a soup and a toastie, both of which were delicious, accompanied by a small beer each. The seating area both upstairs and down is small but there is a great use of a compact space.

Hopefully we will visit again in the spring or summer and be able to make use of the outside seating area overlooking the river. There were blankets provided for anyone wanting to sit outside when we visited but it was just a tad too chilly, especially as we were having lunch.

Give this place a try if you are visiting York.

“Lovely cafe by the river”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Went to find Dyl's after reading such good reviews. We wanted to sit inside but thought the first floor was a little too much of a squeeze to sit comfortably. The wine, bread and olives were great - quality sauvignon blanc! We returned for the same the following day - sat outside and watched a boat race on the river.
Would be even better if they moved to bigger premises, with their unique style I am sure it would be worthwhile to expand.

“Excellent place by the river!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Good food, excellent service and atmosphere. It's the best place in York to be in on a sunny day or for a coffee after work!

“Best Hot Choc in York”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We stopped here on a winter walk to have a nice warm drink. It's a wee place (had to leave the buggy at the foot of the steps outside), but lovely and cosy and the staff were lovely with my two little ones. The hot chocolate here, isn't made with powder, but with wee bits of chocolate. It's so rich and yummy.
If you want to sit outside on a cold day - they've got plenty of seating and blankets! A great idea.

“A gem!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

One of the best cafe/tapas place in York! We enjoyed the tapas plate with a selection of cheese and ham, fantastic bread and spicy olives! All with a great view of the river Ouse! Keep it up! Prices reasonable for the quality and quantity of food.
