Description: Situated right in the centre of York on one of York's oldest snickleways this chic and stylish cafe-restaurant resides in a grade 2 listed Victorian building.The building is classically double fronted and from the front door you are lead into a a modern minimalist space which has 34 covers and features stylish tulip tables with deceptively comfortable panton chairs. During the day the restaurant is light, bright and airy and in the evening is candlelit for more intimate dining.

I've been into de'Clare many times. This Saturday I had the roast vegetable salad and although not disappointed on the taste I thought it was overpriced at £8.25. The dish was only a bit of green salad leaves accompanied by a few pieces of roast vegetables and a few shavings of cheese. It needed more roast veg!!

Tucked away up a Snickleway (look for Superdrug and brave the alleyway) this is one of York's best cafe bars. Truly exceptional Spanish cuisine and cake worth getting fat for!

This is one of my favourite eating places in the city and it's been a well kept secret by the locals. Time to share the secret with the tourists guys...brunch, lunch and tea for the day trippers and dinner on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday for our overnight visitors.

Well worth searching out.

The whole experience of an extended lunch with the family on a Shopping (urghh!) day just did it for me.

I don't intend to go through every morsel we ate plenty of others have already done that, suffice to say that everything was as close to perfect as can be imagined.

Service was first class, Restaurant was spotless, it really does need to be experienced, so do yourself a favour.........

Don't really understand why this place isn't busier on a Saturday evening. Tucked down a side street in the centre of York it's a refreshing change from all usual tourist haunts.

The jamon iberico to start with was sublime and the tapas dishes that followed were delicious.

We finished with a chilled glass of fino sherry and a Catalan cremé pudding.

This is probably our favourite place to eat in York - highly recommended!

We spent the night in York and looked through TA for a place to eat, we found this place and after a search using he app we arrived down a side street.
We were glad we did because quite simply this was the best tapas we have had anywhere.
The food was tasty and to a high quality made by the Portuguese chef
The menu was varied and the food and service was fantastic.
They even bake their own cakes and bread.
Take it from us we can be fussy but this was the real deal.
This place should be packed every night
Highly recommended
