Good food, great service, ambience a little quiet. Seating was a bit uncomfortable unfortunately as we were outside. Comfier seating and a little more room to manoeuvre at the table would’ve been appreciated. I understand things are a little different at the moment, however, with covid restrictions.

Very nice bottle of Sauvignon, but otherwise the food relative to the prices was poor. It was clear from the shredded mixed salad leaves served with every dish that the Chef’s culinary skills were fairly basic. Portion size in certain dishes was too large. Drinks menu was limited as proven when requesting an accompanying drink with dessert, we overheard a nearby table requesting Champagne to be told the price of the only bottle available House Champagne. With lockdown lifting Restaurants really do need to be ready for a public ready to be wowed and ready to spend.

Our favourite restaurant in Whitby in ‘normal’ times and it did not disappoint under current restrictions. Everything about this fantastic intimate restaurant is simply wonderful, food amazing and staff so very helpful and pleasant. The courtyard is warm and welcoming, just brilliant! We will be back again very soon 😘

Absolutely fantastic service, food and setting - this was for a 50th birthday, and I was so pleased we found it - would 100% re book at Mademoiselles, will look forward to the inside opening up again, too as it looked amazing.

We honestly could not fault a thing, every mouthful of our three courses, were delicious.

Thank you to the staff, for everything.

Food was OK, but not outstanding.
Little competition in Whitby, so probably one of the best by local standards.
Expensive for what it was, especially for the area.

We loved this restaurant. Great atmosphere and great service with help on wines and food options. Food was delicious. We couldn’t leave a tip for the staff as no tip on card - cash only. This was a shame as I’d have liked to say thanks to the great service

A lovely atmosphere and decor. This small family run restaurant is one of our favourite restaurants in Whitby. The menu is small but carefully chosen and we found plenty of choice. Everything we tried was superbly prepared. Very friendly and great service.

Restaurant beautiful outside & inside too . We were shown to our table , the top was very wobbly & in danger of tipping up . The waitress said she’d mentioned it a few times to the boss ! Luckily another table was free . Only one glass of house wine left , so hubby had a beer to start then the one glass with his meal & me a tonic . Started of liver parfait was nicely presented but overpriced at £10 ... I had lentil ragout served with sourdough which was dry . Hubby ordered a venison steak , he got 5 small disks of meat in an overpowering sauce with mash and a few parsnip shavings , very disappointing at £28 . We didn’t bother with deserts.
The waitresses were lovely, very polite and efficient but I think they should be smarter , one had faded black jeans and white trainers .
We couldn’t check the bill before we paid , so had to rely on the print out afterwards , the house wine was £6 on the black board & we had been charged £7.50 .
We did notice another diner also checking the board after he had his bill , another couple also had a wobbly table .
I know times have been tough for restaurants & we try to support the small independent ones .
We were really looking forward to trying this restaurant but we were left feeling underwhelmed & wouldn’t return.. the prices compare to the star but the overall ambience and food unfortunately doesn’t, so we won’t be returning unless things improve.

Nice place to dine. Very good atmosphere. Food is tasty, simply presented. The menu boards were a bit clumsy, but more hygienic than picking up a menu during the pandemic. The service could be improved to make it the dining experience better.

Absolutely amazing, not sure there is a better place in the area at the moment. The atmosphere, the attention to detail, the ambiance is lovely the service is top level yet not intrusive. The food is perfection, the Coq au vin was as good as any I have had in France or anywhere, the wine list is very good. Without doubt my favourite place. In 2 minds about posting this in case it gets too popular.

Have been a regular here since they opened. Notwithstanding COVID, things have changed a lot. The menu is probably a little more expansive and the food well prepared and presented. Nothing new there. The service could have been better. Of the three young ladies at front of house only one seemed to be fully trained but all were very polite and helpful. The huge choice of Gins has gone - I was offered Gordons or Hendricks, and the wine list is quite limited. Those who went in its early days will remember the quaint glasses of many styles. All now gone. Having said all of this it was still a very pleasant lunch and well served. The room was cold. COVID rules were very strictly followed by all staff - which is very comforting. Finally, the price is just on the high end of the balance when compared with quality. We'd still go again - it still has a charm all its own.
