    good services nice food,beautiful as well, we spent a nice time on father's day. it's a pity that we have only one day in York and would like to try some sea food so we didn't follow the Father's Day special. (It's two 8oz steaks and a bottle of wine) the desserts are nice and I like the peanut very much. Nice girls there to help us. Thanks a lot. "

    Tastecard introduced us to this small restaurant whilst we stayed for a couple of nights in York. We were warmly welcomed. We had the most wonderful goats cheese mousse with warm figs to start which was a marriage made in heaven. Our main course was fillet steak with chips - very good but we should have been more adventurous. Delicious puddings - panacotta and peach Melba with raspberries cooked 3 ways. Good, and very fair priced wine list - we had the Chilean Malbec and two glasses of La Fleur. First rate coffee. Would certainly return and would definitely recommend. "

    Restaurant was too warm. Starters were ok but too expensive for the amount you got. The mains were a total rip off though, I had the pork fillet and got just 2 bits of pork for £16! My girlfriend had the lamb rump for £18 but this was a bit fatty and we've had much better lamb at Bistro Guy in York. We were so disappointed that we skipped dessert, good job I had tastecard because you'd have to be insane to pay full price at this place. "
