Lovely restaurant, nicely decorated with indoor and outdoor covered seating. Food was very tasty, good ingredients and the wait for food was minimal. Staff where also friendly.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal as a couple. The staff were friendly and efficient. Our starters came promptly and were lovely - garlic mushrooms and deep fried Brie. We opted for the chateaubriand to share. It was delicious, the only slight negative was we asked...for it to be cooked medium/rare and dit was definitely much more medium - however, it was such a nice cut it still melted in the mouth. We finished with selection of 5 cheeses - amazing! I can’t indicate it’s particularly good value - very few places in York are - but the food is top notchMore

Delicious. We had the set menus and picked the steaks from it. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the peppercorn sauce was the best I've had. Flavia our waitress was brilliant and she made sure our anniversary was extra special with a few surprises. Many...thanks!More

Went to this upbeat restaurant after being recommended it by a friend, what a great place it is. Vibrant atmosphere, wide and varied menu and cocktails to die for. Food and drinks are reasonably priced, the service both friendly and speedy. There is both seating...inside and in walkway "outdoor" area, be aware that the entrance to this place is not obvious when you approach it as I walk past it once before finding it.More

Just ok. Lamb shank excellent but chicken risotto only 4 small pieces of chicken disappointed. Creme Brule very hard thick crust did not taste right.

This Restaurant was recommended to us..despite saying it's open until 12pm...it is not...10pm...so at 9.40pm. Our bill was thrown on the table despite us even not having finished our wine or wanting coffee and not having asked for the bill !!! ..food was very good...but the service spoil the experience...yes apologised but not good enough..you would think having been closed for a long period of covid you would be had if the business right now ...word of mouth is all I will say!!!More

I am sorry, I don’t know what is meant by open table. When we visited there were no outside tables available due to COVID restrictions as this was where people were queuing to be seated.
