“Excellent solo breakfast on a whim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

As I live very close I've been intending to visit Conlans for a while, I was passing this morning and entered on a whim very close to opening time. The welcome was warm and although I was fancying poached eggs on toast I was tempted by the eggs Florentine. I had recently enjoyed this dish at the Star Inn the City but this was superior. The dish was hot, the eggs were obviously "happy" and the hollandaise sauce was delicious. I had a lovely chat with the owner and thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast - going back tomorrow evening to try out dinner.

“Deightful and delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

We were visiting York for our daughter's 21st birthday and had researched this restaurant as a good place for breakfast and brunch and we were not disappointed! Debbie, who served us was so accommodating and really patient with our requests (as we wanted to smuggle in a birthday cake without being seen!). She really looked after us and nothing was too much trouble.
Three of our party had eggs benedict and it was delicious - the eggs were so fresh and so yellow! My husband had the breakfast roll and everything was cooked to perfection by Chris the chef!
Lots of choice for all meal options and I believe they are open in the evenings.Very reasonably priced. No need to go all the way into York city centre for a delicious meal!
Thank you all - my daughter had a lovely day!
This restaurant was a real find and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

The service was personal and very kind and attentive (she asked us where we wanted to sit, free bread basket, no problem with a jug of tap water).
The food was gourmet and delicious (but the portions were still good).
And the 2 course for £12 (or 3 for £16) makes it incredibly good value!
I recommend this place to everybody!!!

“A super meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had been recommneded Conlan's by a friend and she was so right! (Thanks Tracey!)
We had a wonderful meal here on a very wet evening but the welcome was exceptionally warm and the food simply delicious. I really don't like chips and never eat them however the way they cook them at Conlan's was just perfect, so light and fluffy - the best chips I've ever!
But the best was yet to come in the pistachio pudding, such rich chocolate and utterly wonderful!
Thanks to everyone we had a great evening and will certainly be back for more superb food and as we can walk from home we are saving the planet too! :)
