Al Bivio

The Lenz, Hornbeam Park Ave, Harrogate HG2 8RE, UK – 01423 870005

Really nice food and friendly staff. Just in a slightly weird place so quite quiet. If it was in a better position I am sure it would be busier every night .

Great tasting food at a very reasonable price. Enjoyed lunch here.

L'Albero Delle Noci

31 Cheltenham Cres, Harrogate HG1 1DH, UK – 01423 565806

We went here for a treat for my birthday. We don't often have Italian as my husband is Italian and restaurants over here don't tend to meet our expectations... This is a very small restaurant so I would suggest booking in advance to ensure a table. If you want a quick meal this also isn't the place for you... the food is cooked fresh and is VERY nice. I would definitely go back here to eat.

The best Italian food I've had in Harrogate thus far. Very welcoming staff. Although they don't have a kids menu, they will create a dish for your children. Don't forget to try the specials board - some of the best meals I've had here are I've ordered off the special board.

Quantro Restaurant

3 Royal Parade, Harrogate HG1 2SZ, UK – 01423 503034

A great place to eat, lovely food and attentive staff. Would recommend as an option when in Harrogate. Nice vegetarian food too.

We have just had a delicious meal, 3 courses, beautifully presented, and served by very pleasant staff. A window table, so great people watching thrown in! A lovely evening.

Really enjoy going to the buffet here. The food is delicious and there is always a wonderful selection, plus it's great value too. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and attentive. Highly recommended!

Good food and service, very nice setting


7-11 Cheltenham Parade, Harrogate HG1 1DD, UK – 01423 560674

Awesome food, awesome service and awesome vibe. Nothing about this place is normal - its all awesome. The food is to die for, the service is always prompt, helpful and delivered with a smile. The owner really cares about the food and you enjoying it. Take their recommendations or be more adventurous and ask for something off-menu. Never had a bad experience. The other curry houses in town lack any depth and dishes all seem to blend into one flavour. Not here, they are all different and enriched with flavours you rarely find elsewhere. Enjoy.

I have had 2 courses at Shalimar; the first a set 3 course meal with the family which was great in taste, quality and quantity for the price and the second off the main menu. Both were extremely tasty and delivered with speed, courtesy and great customer service. Shalimar has a great atmosphere and there is always a friend face there smiling to welcome you! I definitely can recommend this restaurant!

Woodland Tandoori

158-158A Hookstone Dr, Harrogate HG2 8PF, UK – 01423 819666

Excellent takeaway. Well priced, and never a bad dish. Good range of options, including plenty of vegetarian choices.

Probably one of the best and most reasonably priced takeaways in Harrogate. Where else can you get a donner on nan for £3.50. Good size portion that would cost £6 - £7 elsewhere. Currys are great value too and some good and different options from the usual types. Delivery is always within the timescale with polite and friendly drivers. Phone orders through as Just Eat will rip you off with a service charge on all orders.

Visited 2 nights running whilst at a conference in Harrogate. Food was good. Staff pleasant. Overall experience was high. It's a chain and so the menu was predictable but they did what they do well.

Popped in for a week day late lunch with the family, the staff welcomed us in and were very helpful and friendly. W we had someone who was in training as a server and they did a sterling job. Really pleasant for a Tuesday afternoon. Thank you.

Zizzi Harrogate

1 Station Parade, Harrogate HG1 1TB, UK – 01423 408376

Absolutely amazing service and incredible food. Nice to see the people who work there having a laugh, creates a good atmosphere. As well as working hard. Didn't wait long for the food. All around amazing service.

Good Italian food with a varied menu and good gluten free alternatives. Our 2 year old ate well as did my mum, who is a celiac, (the gluten free stuff). On a side note, the kitchen lost our order resulting in us waiting ages and the head waiter halved our bill despite me not making a scene. Great recovery! Would still recommend without discount. Taste card accepted on weekdays.

Vivido Restaurant

16 Cheltenham Cres, Harrogate HG1 1DH, UK – 01423 566453

This restaurant is very my recommend, first come to this place the waiter is very friendly and humble. all in preparation from the start table to the size of some people, the opening menu, the main menu until the cover menu. Of these steps are each step in asking about: the taste of food, the portion of food and services provided. At that time we together with my sister came to eat here by ordering spaghetti. For a decent price, a little bit spend deeper. But you will not be disappointed to eat here, according to the price paid for the food. It is suitable for family meals, office friends or relatives who visit your place.

Excellent food and service. We called in after a conference near by and the staff were very accommodating. Would love to come back. Staff very friendly

Amazing decor inside and a great dining experience. Food was of a very high standard, bit you would expect that for the price you pay. Staff were plentiful and extremely attentive. There is so much to take in when you dine in surroundings as interesting as these. Worth a visit if you are in the area as it is probably the most lavishly decorated restaurant I have visited yet!

Really interesting building to have a restaurant. The food was great. The staff were lovely and I had an excellent time.

Cheung Won Restaurant

Taste of China

6 Knaresborough Rd, Harrogate HG2 7SP, UK – 01423 889676

Salt and Pepper combo box are amazing. Enough for 2 people for sure.

I have just taken part in a few Pad Thai Boxes, plus a few sides. So please read on... Firstly, I have used Taste Of China for 20 years. Secondly, prawn crackers were not expected and not delivered. Why fill up on these free items that detract away from the true quality of food that you are about to indulge on! Thank you for not sending me these hunger & taste bud destroyers! Thirdly, I have eaten at many exclusive Restaurants in many countries and I have been served food that was 10x the price of what I paid tonight. The food I indulged on this evening was first class and 9 out of 10. I say 9 because perfection doesn’t exist! but this food was truly amazing this evening. To summarise the above, please try Taste Of China, I highly recommend them. Please don’t order at 7pm on a Saturday evening and complain your free prawn crackers were cold!!! Be respectful and understand that it’s difficult to be perfect under pressure!!! Enjoy your next order....

Gianni's Brio Restaurant and Pizzeria

40-42 King's Rd, Harrogate HG1 5JW, UK – 01423 553953

We had made a reservation and were shown to our table as soon as we entered The drinks waiter appeared almost as soon as we sat down and brought a huge basket of mixed bread with our drinks. We ordered our food including dough balls as a starter to share and was amazed as this huge basket of savoury doughnuts appeared a short time later. Our main courses came swiftly and my steak was cooked to perfection and my wife's chicken dish was huge. The food was plentiful and of excellent quality, the only problem was we were too full to try a desert. Everyone was friendly and attentive and made my wife's birthday meal extra special.

Authentic Italian. Great food, nice cocktails. The waiters were attentive, friendly with nothing too much trouble. We will be returning.

Two days in a row at Sukhothai restaurant. The atmosphere was The food is excellent. A hot green curry with beef went down well with egg fried rice. The pad prik gang topped with king prawns and noodles was a great meal. Vegetarian spring roll a Good starter. No room for dessert.

I am never overly happy after eating at Sukhothai. The staff are great the location itself is nice, well maintained and clean but the food I feel ia always not quite up to par. On my last visit I tried a prawn curry ans although OK it felt overly hot for a one chilli rating and also the chilli oil was visibly separating from the cream based sauce. I will likely go back to Sukhothai but I do hope I have a better experience with the food next time.

Wonderful pub in the heart of a beautiful town. We both had a local beer which was amazing! & then chose from the menu, all the meal choices were freshly made traditional British, plus vegan & vegetarian dishes! Totally amazed by the whole experience! First British pub i have visited in many years of living abroad. We loved it! 😊🇬🇧💗

A very nice comfortable laid back pub! Good food, a wonderful selection of cold beer !! Great service !!!

The Coach & Horses

Great pub. Their etiquette page on their website gives a good idea what to expect. A good range of beer, gin and whiskey to be enjoyed in an environment designed to be sociable. Great for meeting and catching up. Don't expect food on Saturday night. Saturday is for drinking.

Pleasant 'proper' pub, friendly staff, small but good menu, fresh food, good atmosphere.

My “Holy Grail” draught Bass, very hard to find these days and here it was in perfect condition! Really nice old pub with lots of atmosphere, friendly staff and charming knowledgeable Landlady. Good selection of 6 cask ales, tad pricey but worth it. It’s nearly 300 miles from home but I’m looking forward to my next visit.

Traditional Victorian gas lighting and a wonderful atmosphere! Good selection of drinks..quirky beer garden...bring your dog! Made several visits over the course of the weekend...return trip being planned soon..
