“Faultless !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Had a fantastic six course tasting menu, which was specially created for the Tour De France. First course consisted of Yorkshire Ingredients, ending with dessert from Paris. Everything about the whole experience was faultless, the front of house was both welcoming and informative, and the chef came through and chatted to us at our table. Excellent choice of wines, at reasonable prices. The £30 set price is fantastic value for the standard of food. Will definitely be back.

“Best in york”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Le Cochon Aveugle has been under new ownership since the early spring 2014. The chef (Josh) is cordon bleu trained by the Roux brothers. The restaurant is intimate with a lovely atmosphere (the photos on trip advisor with the piano are out of date). There is no menu to choose from as it is a tasting menu of 6 courses at £30 per head. I have been three times now, twice with my husband and once with friends. Each visit has been more than excellent. The food is superb, with a huge amount of thought put into the menu, the atmosphere is a delight and the service is perfect with helpful descriptions and a well read pace. The optional 7th course, of coffee and hand made chocs, is an experience in itself with the most fantastic 'at table' coffee machine. This is the best restaurant I have been to outside of London. Can't wait for my fourth visit!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Top drawer food and service makes Le Cochon Aveugle a must visit for locals and tourists.York is gradually improving its range of restuarants and this recent addition is most welcome.The six course tasting menu on the night of our recent visit was excellent and well balanced.The wine list is small but offers some good value regional French wines.All in all hard to fault and very competitively priced.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten at. The quality, price and friendliness of this very intimate restaurant will be hard to beat. The 6 course taster menu was truly excellent, every mouthful to be savoured!! We will be recommend it to everyone we know who visits York.
