Interesting menu and with the tapas concept of small plates of differant exciting dishes allows you to try many differant things from the menu in one sitting. Really relaxed atmosphere and great service. Cheesy chips and mayo can not be avoided!!
Expected high end tapas, like any meal if you have some disappointment you naturally think more about the cost.
Great food, great service, great place! Can't wait to go back!!
A really fun evening with friends, with delicious food, beer and wine.
Its a real shame. I booked this restaurant after discovering an article on the Guardian website, recommending it. I thought as we were visiting York for the weekend, it was a surprise for my partners birthday. I can't fault the food, we had a roast, and the food we had was very tasty, but not very big portions and my meal was cold. Our waitress forgot to get our drinks twice, and our mint sauce arrived half way through our meal. The ale was very nice too.
We came away after struggling with a wonky table, feeling deflated and still hungry.
I was dispaointed and didn't feel the review on-line correctly described the experience.
Great and knowledgeable staff
Good place to meet friends, have date night or a good girly lunch/ dinner.
Choice of gins.. . Amazing
Great little gem, would recommend to anybody, will definitely be visiting again. Plenty of choices as it is all small plates. Great services
This was our second visit . The food was lovely and our waitress was a delight .
However overall my experience was spoilt as I stumbled when descending the stairs . As a result I have had two visits to hospital with a badly sprained swollen ankle .
Great service , lovely staff, selection of local guest beers , very good location near York Minister
Reasonable value and the music was good, but overall a pretty average experience. Service was slow, the tables aren't really big enough for the small plate sharing concept, and the food, although decent, could be summed up as above average bar snacks. Would be a good place to drink with something other than crisps & nuts on offer alongside, but not a place I will hurry back to for a meal, there are better genuine tapas places in York.
Perhaps expectations were too high given the quality of food on offer in Harome versus this place.
Great little place, cosy atmosphere, lovely tapas food, very relaxed.
Excellent menu, slightly out of the ordinary. The service was excellent, thoroughly recommended
Quirky restaurant serving great food. Staff friendly and helpful, menu seasonal and interesting
Well below standard of mr p’s other establishments. Would not recommend.
Absolutely great restaurant, very relaxed yet exceptional food;
We sat downstairs. It was too brightly lit and there was little ambience. The red wine list was limited. They let us taste three off the menu and the only decent one was £44. The cheese and meat board that we shared was rather stingy and I could have sworn the olive oil they gave us for dipping was vegetable. I asked for something better and they came out with a delicious peppery oil. So why didn’t you give us that in the first place. I’ve dined on many many occasions at mr perns restaurants this was very disappointing. Such a shame.
Food was very nice, setting was brilliant and the staff were amazing, thoroughly recommend
The veggie options were limited and dull, the table we were given was a window bench sat on the same side, the meat and fish dishes were very good just need to put that level of attention and creativity into all their cooking, expected so much more,
Great food, fab location,
Great place with great food and drinks. I’ve been here and to a number of Andrew Perns’ other restaurants and think they are fantastic. Well worth a visit.
A quirky place with lots of character. Sharing of small plates - had advice as to how many to order so didnt over do it. Portions didn't look big but were filling. Plates came to table bit by bit. Hot and tasty. Crumble for pudding was delicious.
Chose a merlot - was a Greek wine which waitress recommended and was a great choice.
Great wee place that would suit couples, friends and older family groups.
AMAZING!!!!!! Honestly one of the best places we have ever been. It's truly phenomenal and we can't wait to return
Lunch with a friend, great food
I will not be returning to Mr Ps. The restaurant is very small and cramped. We were seated at a bar table which was not very comfortable to sit and eat at. The waitress service was average which slowed as the night went on. Overall a poor overpriced evening with meat that smelled off, old brown cauliflower cheese and the venison taco texture resembled dog food. Very disappointed.
Good service and food never rushed nice atmosphere good wine
Had a great time. Wonderful food, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Perfect.
We were a bit disspointed given the origins (star) and the on line buildup. We think the Yorkshire puddings were pre made and then reheated and the pork was chewy. As we left we walked past a renowned fish and chip restaurant a few doors away and commented that we should have eaten there for half the price. Maybe it as because we were first in as it opened at lunchtime.
Beautiful food, interesting and diverse menu. The staff are fantastic and all the dishes are delicious. Incredibly good value with the 3 small dishes for £15 deal. We went for a birthday / anniversary meal and it was every bit the special evening we had hoped for. An excellent spot for any foodies out there.
Really unique place with amazing food and not too pricey. Highly recommend.
After false start as our booked table wasn’t available for 25min, the dining staff were apologetic and great service thereafter. Food was delectable and a good time was had by all
Food was tasty and, apart from one dish that was forgotten, served quickly. Not really enough room for all the "small plates" on the table. Unfortunately my wife spent the following early hours visiting the loo and I had the sweats (no it wasn't excessive drinking). A lively place, more for casual groups than romantic special meals. Staff were friendly.
Great food in a cosy environment. Some food came a bit quick but we weren’t rushed out. Could do with sorting the draft from the front door but otherwise a great culinary experience, especially for couples and small groups who appreciate great food.
Just ok really. The concept is great but enjoyed only 2 out of the 6 smaller plates. The other 4 were just ok. Especially disappointing we're the pheasant based scotch egg and Haute Hot Dog; well cooked, but lacked seasoning and flavor. Did enjoy the pesto and Stilton risotto.
Great atmosphere and very quirky. Food was inventive and good.
As always, Mr P’s did not disappoint. The Burns Night specials were fantastic, and in particular the Cullen Skink which was one of the best I’ve had. The staff were attentive and engaging, without being ‘in your face’. My only surprise was that it wasn’t busier - I’m not sure why, as it was great!
Another lovely evening with great food, staff and music x
Excellent service, outstanding food. What is there more to say?
Lovely lunch sat by the window people watching. With delicious small plates that were not brought all at once but with just enough time to eat before the next came along.
The food was really good, excellent, without fault. I would say that the service and staff competence could be improved. I've eaten her a few times and unfortunately that has been the case each time.
A wonderful eating experience! Will definitely be returning. Food was lovely, service was excellent and a wonderful choice of gins. What's not to like?!
Our only grievance was that we were initially sat by the door, which let in a cold breeze everytime someone entered or left but we were soon moved to a more suitable table, when asked.
Staff were friendly and very helpful.
Had a fabulous evening celebrating my husband’s birthday.
