Romantic quiet restaurant

by banana70 Online Now Jun 27, 2007 at 4:41 AM

Hello
We are going to York for a night away from the kids in July. Have got the hotel sorted but thought it would be nice to step out to a restaurant in the centre for a lovely quiet romantic meal. This is the first time in 4 years we have been away for a night so don't want to get it wrong. What are your tips. We eat anything, the ambience is the more important thing! Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hm...it is the quiet aspect I'm trying to think about...For me, most places are romantic since I met my husband in York, but somehow I doubt that you will want McDonald's brunch after a night out pubcrawling together, nor head to the suburbs for a curry :)))

    This is a well known one:

    Another top one is this (with French influences since the owner studied with Roux):

    Pubs are hardly quiet but the best pub food is probably served at the Royal Oak which also has cookery classes (see my York page).

    The Lime House is a prize winning one:

    Apart from that, St William's College which belongs to the Minster is a very cosy place if the weather is good and you can dine in the lovely courtyard:

    St. Williams is very good - I was there last month.Slightly expensive but classy.
