We booked dinner after reading reviews. We both had the taster menu with the taster wines. Everything was amazing, the food, wine and service. We will definitely visit again.

Had a fantastic dinner.We hadn't been for a long time and were simply amazed by the quality.The confit salmon starter was definitely worth going back for and the hake with Jerusalem artichokes worked well.Baked quince with brown bread ice cream and walnuts was another stand out dish. The restaurant is a short walk from the centre of York and certainly... More

I have known Meltons Restaurant for many years and recently I needed a venue for a celebration. There would be 9 of us and I needed somewhere I trusted to deliver great food and top notch service. I spoke to Lucy Hjort and she outlined how the evening could work. She offered their upstairs room as a private venue and... More

We booked a table using their online booking form and as a special request asked to be seated at right-angles which when we arrived had been duly noted - thank you. It was a Thursday evening and only a few tables were occupied. We chose the taster menu - five courses plus amuse bouche. Good wine list. Excellent service. The... More

Don't be put off by the less than grand frontage - the food is exceptional and so are the staff. Beautifully presented cuisine with lovely flavours and a great wine list to complement it all.

We have always had fond memories of our previous visits in the early nineties and were delighted to find that their values are still the same. The innovative presentation of their dishes is however, at a level rarely found in a suburban restaurant offering very reasonable prices. Pigeon Wellington and venison in chocolate sauce were both outstanding but there was... More

It's been a couple of years since we went to Melton's. Now living in France, I was interested to see how they would measure up against French cuisine....the answer: very well! Beautiful food, expertly cooked and presented. A wonderful complexity of flavours in each dish, accompanied by the owner's choice of wine. We went for the a la carte choices,... More

Moments from York racecourse and the River Ouse you���ll find local gem, Melton���s. Picked up by all the major food guides, and the only restaurant in York listed in Egon Ronay's Top 200 Restaurant's in Britain, Melton���s menu is Melton���s menu is an immaculate collection of local and international dishes using fresh regional produce. Mix that with Melton���s friendly, warm service and it���s easy to see why this charming restaurant has remained a local favourite over the years. Sample the delights of local duck with five spice and soya, steamed rice and pak choi, or flavorsome mussel risotto with anise air.
