Visited as part of a couples break in York. Had an incredible meal with some interesting and well-explained food. The wine pairings were also excellent (we particularly liked the Lebanese red!).

We decided to go for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course was very tasty and meticulously served. The wine pairings were inspired - quirky and imaginative combinations. Service was excellent with insightful commentary on the rationale for each wine pairing.

Dishes are imaginative and most ingredients are locally sourced. For regular visitors there is also a "birthday club" that gifts you a free meal every year during the month you were born. Nice quiet atmosphere and attentive but unobtrusive service.

We used Trip Advisor's recommendation for a local restaurant near to our caravan park in York. A lovely atmospheric intimate restaurant with very interesting artwork on the walls. Food was first class and service was excellent. We intend to return

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.
