“Great food and staff”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We ate at the York Street for dinner last night and found the food to be outstanding . Good quality fresh food with a small but varied menu. Bottle shop down the street carries local wines and the York charges no corkage fee. We. Will eat there again this week.

“I have waited for this place to appear on these pages to write a review”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have eaten in this "Cafe" on three occasions, twice for lunch, and once for breakfast. At one of the breakfast sittings the front of house staff had a couldn't care less attuide. On each 3 visits, the food was very,very average at extreme rip of prices. I do not mind paying good money for good quality food, but you don't get it here. I have visited once alone and twice with friends. No more.

“Contemporary Decore but Basic Food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Maybe the York Street Cafe is new to town (we weren't sure) but we should have 'read' the signs when we arrived to dine- we were the only customers and other (nearby) restaurants were reasonably busy. We booked to have dinner because the menu looked promising and the cafe, itself, looked inviting and contemporary.

The front-of-house staff were friendly, attentive and obliging, With a few more customers, the place would have had a great atmsophere. The staff blamed the local 'film festival' for stealing their customers. There were plenty of diners in other restaurants.

Unfortunately, the food was a disappointment. Not the fine dining experience that we anticipated, especially given the menu descriptions and the prices. In summary, York Street Cafe was charging fine dining prices for very basic cafe food.Indeed, my wife described the food as being somewhat 'homely'. We should have also taken a hint from the dinner 'special' that was being offered- a beef stew that sounded like it could have come from the domestic kitchens of most Aussie households.

If you want very basic cafe food, our suggestion is to go at lunchtime when the prices are lower and more accurately match the standard of fooid being served.
