My friend and I asked for directions to York Art Gallery from someone working locally and said we wanted to get a snack as well. He recommended we try this quirky and quite lovely café/restaurant. The walls are covered in sheet music, the furniture does not match but it all works for a great ambience. As it was a cold... More

We popped in here on the way to look around York Minster, and could not have been happier. We both had soup, my wife the Tomato, and me the mushroom and aubergine from the specials. Both were delicious. The ambience was very cool and relaxed, and we liked the sheet music wallpaper. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking... More

I popped in here for a quick coffee between meetings and found myself not wanting to leave! The coffee was delicious, and although I didn't eat, the food that other customers had looked amazing and fresh. The interior is quirky and homely - sheets of music serve as wallpaper, with vintage posters and photos dotted around the walls too. It... More

The ambience in this quirky restaurant/cafe is quite something. Old music books on the walls, instruments everywhere and classic jazz music playing. Dim and fairly quiet. Good selection and very filling (we had three courses). Good value, not top notch food but well presented and effortlessly done. Attentive staff and able to easily wander out for a good stroll within... More

We arrived at Cafe Concerto expecting a lot - the reviews are good and we Brits are a fussy bunch! The restaurant is lovely and big and there are plenty of tables but one look at the menu made me realise why it wasn't busier. The prices are crazy! £3.60 for a large (read 'average sized') glass of orange juice... More

Amazing food. Sausages where so good. Local and really nice. We had the vegetarian lasagne too which was also great the white wine that was recommended by the lovely waitress was also really good ! Highly recommend restaurant is slightly crammed but adds to the atmosphere I guess.

visited between Christmas and New Year which is a busy time in York and managed to get a table in this charming cafe. Friendly staff. Nice pots of Darjeeling and Green Tea with very good home made scones. The food looked very nice especially the breakfasts. Will return in the future. Love the old musical scores decorating the walls. Nice... More
