We went back after 25 years. Was my wifes favorite resturant.
It was as good as our memories
I love it here. It is classy, intimate, professional and serves great food! Not to be missed and perfect for a special occasion.
Lovely experience for our wedding anniversary from start to finish. Attentive at the bar when we first went in, pouring our wine for us.We were taken through to our table. We had a 3 course meal and each course was to die for. Again staff very attentive. Would highly recommend as not expensive, meals delicious and courteous staff. We will return
We loved this place. Great food and wine. Very quiet when we dined there, but deserves to be packed out.
Excellent food, excellent service, very friendly professional staff. Best Sunday lunch in the area!
Beautiful food, very attentive service, lovely atmosphere. Just a perfect dining experience
Excellent Staff, Excellent food, Excellent service, Excellent value for money. What more can I say!!!
Best Sunday lunch we've had in a restaurant for a long time. The beef was gorgeous and the whole dining experience a pleasure.
Excellent meal with attentive staff. The chef clearly knew what he was doing. We will be returning soon!
Beautiful food, impeccable service, lovely surroundings. Would definitely recommend.
Verry attentive Staff who could not be more helpful.We went for Sunday Lunch and found it very good.
Great menu, great venue, great food and great environment. Would I recommend? I already have! Fantastic! Thank you very much.
excellent meal and reasonably priced wine - no significant problems - all four of enjoyed the meal
We were very lucky as we caught them on a very quiet afternoon. So we had the whole place to ourselves.
Friendly and efficient service without being too intrusive in our evening. Exceptional food which was good value for money from the evening menu. The surroundings were lovely.
Fantastic place to eat; would highly recommend. We booked for a birthday treat and the food was excellent.
Have visited the Tontine many times and have never been disappointed - until now. Restaurant was very quiet but it still took one and a half hours to complete a 2 course lunch which was pretty ordinary. Now off our list of preferences
Incredible food, definitely worth the 2 AA rosettes! Service perfectly balanced, relaxed but attentive
We had a great Sunday roast with the our family of 4, and they let our dog sit under the table in the lounge, as advertised. Excellent food and excellent, friendly service.
We have been wanting to visit The Tontine for over 15 years and it didn’t disappoint!
Amazing staff and service, great food and lovely surroundings.
Would definitely recommend this place and we will be visiting again soon.
Really nice food and wonderful attentive staff. Would recommend.
I chose to go to the Tontine as I used to go there as a child with my parents and I wanted to show my friend how lovely it is.
We received a warm welcome on arrival and we were seated in the bar area and we ordered drinks. The waiter who saw to us was wonderful. Very polite and helpful, friendly but professional.
We moved into the restaurant and had a table by the window which was lovely and we ordered our lunch. As it was a special occasion we order the Chateaubriand for our main course which was probably the best I have ever had. The starters were also very nice. I had the Smoked Duck with hazelnuts and rhubarb and my friend had the beetroot & fennel risotto. Again the service was perfect.
Our desserts did not disappoint and I had the lemon posset with raspberry coulis and my friend had Affogato which she told me was fabulous.
Having worked in the hospitality business for over 30 years I suppose I am quite picky about where I eat but I have nothing but praise for the Tontine and we will certainly be back soon
Beautiful place. Excellent service. Unfortunately the main meal was over seasoned with too much salt. I did mention this after my meal and did receive a sorry.
Amazing from start to finish!! And thank you to Alex, who looked after us.
Very nice Sunday lunch with excellent service. Food was lovely although one of us had a lot of fat on beef. One of us had chicken in forestiere sauce and said it was absolutely delicious. One of us had whitebait starter and it was best he can ever remember having. Lovely ambience in the bistro and you would never know it was so close to a main road. We will definitely return.
We eat out a lot and this is easily our favourite restraunt. The ambience, the food and the service are all excellent.
Very pleasent staff and good ambience . Delicious food.Nothing to be critical of !
Spoiled for choice with the menu, and the set menu was excellent value for money. I had the risotto followed by the sea bass and both were cooked to perfection. Lovely selection of drinks and beautiful atmosphere in the lounge whilst waiting for our table. Staff were very polite and courteous, and made the experience even better
Food was lovely, a little on the expensive side but really good quality ingredients however the service could have been better - drinks not topped up, ordered drinks that didn’t arrive and a fairly long wait for mains but maybe a one off as I’m sure they’d had a very busy Sunday service!
Best Sunday lunch I have ever had!! It was perfection!! Staff very polite and pleasant I would definately recommend this wonderful restaurant
Good Sunday lunch....excellent service....apart from Luke warm carrots and parsnips all good
Lovely lunch and brilliant staff! I had made a specific seating request to make a family member more comfortable and they were brilliant in accommodating this - thank you!
We (a party of 6) really enjoyed ourselves. On arrival we would have appreciated an aperitif upstairs in front of the fire in a more relaxing way. The small bar downstairs where we had pre lunch drinks has slippy high leather bar stools alright for youngsters but not so grand for the 60/70+. The food was very good, my whitebait starter was enough with good sized whitebait well cooked. Fish soup very tasty, not thick enough, and i like my fish submerged in the sauce (not placed on top) and served with a thick rouille sauce, grated Gruyere or Parmesan cheese, along with garlic toast or croutons. (traditional Bouillabaisse) For dessert ice cream was yummy. Yes we will go back as a party or a couple. Loved that you didn't get chucked out as we had a few more drinks and a bit of craic.
Very enjoyable Sunday lunch experience. Have been here for around 30 years when staying in North York. New ownership but attentive service excellent & most importantly food to die for
Excellent service from the staff and the food was extremely good.
Excellent food for the lunch menu, and very good value. Lovely ambiance in dining room with log fire .
Food and service were both outstanding, the restaurant was very busy which made it a bit noisy however this did not detract from the excellent service
Great staff and excellent food.Cosy by the big fireplace.
We thought the place was lovely and the food good, a few things spoilt our evening . Firstly the service was poor and slow we had 2 people in our party waiting for utensils whilst the other two had their food and one person's sweet didn't arrive we had to ask for it. And secondly we had a lovely cup of coffee at the end of our meal but we're not offered a refill. Also it was sad to see so many wilting plants throughout the restaurant area. The head waiter was very good and attentive but unfortunately some of his juniors were less on the ball. Shame.
A very pleasant lunch. Notwithstanding its proximity to the A19 it was nice and quiet in he dining room.
