We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening during an overnight stay in the city for a graduation. It was a lovely quirky place with quite a buzzing but relaxed atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We all had starters and mains and we all found them to be well cooked and presented showing imagination with flavours... More

This is such a nice restaurant, tucked away but well worth visiting. It has a great balance between friendly, relaxed and seriously good food. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being overbearing....not many get that right ! We all had excellent meals (pulled pork scotch egg is a must) and was very reasonably priced. Look forward to returning... More

Decided to try this place based upon trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Its a great little find hidden away in the city centre. Nice atmosphere, great food and wine. The service is very fast and you are not left waiting for long before the next course arrives. The portions are a good size hence you are not... More

Found by accident as we were on our way back to the hotel - an A-board sign directed us down a little alley into a courtyard where the restaurant was situated. Had the 'B4Ate' menu and it was stunning! The assorted cheeses starter was to die for. Every part of the meal was an explosion on the tastebuds! Don't miss... More

Lovely venue with very friendly staff and superb food. We all chose different choices and were all very pleased . The atmosphere and warmth added to the experience. The name of the restaurant and how it was chosen added to the interest and was enhanced by all the clock faces on the walls all showing eight o clock. Delicious lunch... More

This was all booked by my Hens, quirky lovely restaurant, the food was top class, and Prosecco too match. Service was excellent, and was so hard to choose what to have, they have many daily specials as well as the normal menu. When I am in York again, I will visit in a flash again

Visited over Christmas and we had the steak and wine deal which was 2x steaks with chips and salad and a bottle of red wine for £38. We found this to be good value for money and also had starters which we enjoyed. Only criticism if you could call it that is that the food came out a bit too... More

We've been here on 4 occasions in the last couple of years after finding it tucked away next to Nandos in York. We've had 3 dinner time meals and one evening meal. It's not a large restaurant and the menu is not very big but there is a good selection for everyone. I've had the steak sandwich, Caesar salad and... More

We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Excellent service and outstanding food, a must recommend for anyone visiting York. I had the three course pre-fix (available Mon-Thurs). Another positive was the portion sizes, excellent value for money. I've never been so willing to rate a restaurant 5 stars. Enjoy!
