Please recommend best restaurant - special occasion!

We will be staying at the Cedar Court Grand early next year. One night's meal is already sorted, but we want to go somewhere 'special' for the other night - cost no problem, just want a really enjoyable evening with excellent food. We could eat in the hotel if all else fails - any opinions on the hotel's restaurant? Thankyou!

Have paid for our room for 2 nights, so won't be changing hotels. Just want restaurant recommendation for one of the nights. Thanks.

We still recommend Middlethorpe above as a special setting.

Our eating review would now out of date from the past, but not the place.

Other many York restaurants are in TA reviews for York.

Most are based solely on most numerical reviews for ranking status,

I'd recommend Ate o clock or J Bakers.

I certainly wouldn't recommend Rudding Park - it's nowhere near York, and having lived in Harrogate for many years there are better places in the town.

Meant to add - if you are looking for somewhere in York city centre for lunch, Abiente Tapas is really lovely. Very good range of well priced tapas dishes, lovely old building, pleasant service.

We just had 4 weeks in the UK and the

meal we had at J Bakers was one of the best.

2nd for Middlethorpe.

York has lots of good places but lacks tremendous.

Pipe & Glass is very good but is 45min each way.

We ate in the Cedar Court Grand and it was very good.

For a special occassion would suggest Blue Bicycle or J Bakers and possibly Meltons.

You can walk to all of these from hotel

As already mentioned the Blue Bicycle is an excellent place to eat.

We like a nice French Bistro called Rustique it is in Castlegate very popular you must book.

There are literally hundreds of restaurants in York you are spoilt for choice - you will most likely see somewhere that catches your eye as you walk exploring the city.
