Early evening visit the 2 course special offer is very good deal A reasonable choice The arrival service was very brusque But the ordering and delivery of our food was great Shame they serve frozen chips and there's no ambience Very brightly lit and a bit run down

We were visiting York last weekend with family and decided to have dinner somewhere close to the Minster. We were greeted by lovely and helpful staff, the food was well cooked and tasty (the desserts are very nice), and the atmosphere was warm and calm. Had a lovely evening - will be coming back the next time we're visiting York!

Just had a sumptuous three course meal. Delicious. Very pleasant staff, good quality food. Very adult ambience with unobtrusive music.

We came across Michael's Brasserie, I think what attracted me at first was the cheerful ambience from the outside. Sadly the same couldn't be said for when you actually go in. You walk straight into what can only be described as a dingy... More

If you want a good hearty breakfast then look no further than here... from a full english to a sausage and bacon ciabatta. You will not be disappointed!!!

But we were grateful that they had a spare table! Service was average to good, but the food was excellent, and in a lovely setting very close to the Minster.
