Very nice place with the following reasons to definitely pass by there:
- very friendly staff
- small, quit place right next to the Minster with a great view of all passing-by-people
- food is TOP. Perfect quantities, very tasteful and most important: local dishes
- Limited menu but everything on it sounds marvelous. Recommend for sure the 'York chocolat cake' as dessert.

Not to miss!

Thanks to TripAdvisor yet again, we found this wonderful place right by York Minster. It bills itself as a cafe by day and a bistro by night. As a small place, it offers a limited menu, but everything is delicious, locally sourced and beautifully prepared. We stayed in a nearby hotel and there were many restaurant choices in busy York, but once we tried Bennett's, we found it hard to go anywhere else for a meal. Their scrambled eggs with smoked salmon were a perfect breakfast, their roast duck breast with Parmesan mash and mixed vegetables were an exceptional dinner, and their sticky toffee pudding was one of the best I've ever had. Service was always pleasant and prompt. No one enters or leaves without a waiter holding the door with a warm smile.

We visited for dinner on the 9th May after booking that morning. We decided to book after reading the feedback on trip advisor. The welcome we had was warm and friendly and the food beautiful. We both had the fillet steaks. All their food is locally sourced and of great quality. If visiting York then add to your list.. Well worth a visit and good value for money.

Having really enjoyed our first evening meal at Bennett's, we were equally impressed by our second. We visited Bennet's on May 7th, I has the duck and my husband chose the sea bass risotto. Both were excellent in every detail, as were the starters and puddings. The service was very good, both friendly and efficient. Once again we experienced a lovely evening enjoying the magnificent view of York Minster.
