If you are on an extended stay at the Crown hotel, say for a conference, then Quantro, across the street, will provide you with a quality dining experience that won't strain the expense account.

Fusion is, I believe, the word that describes the fare on offer here. I was a rather wary of this description, but here, at least it works - and how!

My missus and I have a habit of sharing every dish we order. Both of us enjoyed the 2 starters and the 2 main courses immensely. A salad of rocket with chicken's liver was livened by local black pudding and a well judged dressing. A similar salad of oriental crispy prawns benefitted from a tasty Thai style aromatic sauce.

Monkfish wrapped in bacon served in a crayfish sauce was nothing short of brilliant. Equally good was slices of Yorkshire lamb served with flavoured mash.

Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert.

Harrogate's arriviste status as a venue means that competition is stiff. Quantro delivers mixed messages visually: modest exterior, not especially welcoming chairs/tables, a huge mirror along one wall.

This, in absolutely no way, refleects the quality of the cooking, or indeed service.

£ 71 for two, including two cocktails and a bottle of Fleurie.

We have been coming here for many years for Saturday lunch - at least once or twice a month.

The food is consistently good. Modern English is, I think, the style.

The menu changes with the seasons. It is extensive, with the fixed price Menu Q , a "light lunch" selection, or the full a la carte. Or you can have a combination of all of the above - each dish is priced if you want to mix and match.

The staff are friendly and helpful, and most have been there for several years.

A lot of the customers are regulars like ourselves.

The chef and the maitre d' are joint owners, so it's in their interests to make sure the customer is happy - they certainly succeed in that.

I have eaten here many times over the last 3 or 4 years, both lunchtimes and evenings. The dishes are full of flavour with excellent presentation. Wine list covers all you should need, both variety and cost. Staff are attentive without being 'keen'. Part of me is loath to right how much I enjoy eating here, but I've kept quiet until now! Quantro is one of the best restaurants in Harrogate district (infact the best in my opinion).

The food was absolutely gorgeous! The staff were really polite and helpful, nice atmosphere and decor, tad overpriced (or maybe that was all the wine?) - should have ordered a side dish.
