“A game-changing restaurant for residents...and visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

In new hands since Jan 2014, Le Cochon Aveugle really sets a new standard for eating out in York. The genius is in the format, if I can use that word about such a welcoming and delightful restaurant. Six courses for £30 is a great deal, meaning that you can indulge in many different and imaginative tastes while knowing what the bottom line is going to be.
We advise on booking that we don't eat meat or foul, so the menu is tweaked for us and we have never been disappointed. Also, the 'fixed' menu changes more or less weekly, so you revisit without any chance of boredom.
This is my kind of restaurant: intimate but informal, creative menus without overworked food and a warm, professional presence front-of-house.

“Fabulous, as ever - excellent food, lovely people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Having thoroughly enjoyed visits to Le Cochon last year, I'd been very keen to try it in its new incarnation. Clearly picking up on hints I hadn't even realized I was dropping, my son and husband booked a table for mother's day. The menu was very cleverly put together, perfectly executed, and at a very reasonable price. Service was, as ever, professional and friendly. This is a truly cracking team: exceptionally lovely people, who are passionate about what they're doing, and are doing it very well indeed.

Essentially, this is an independent restaurant, which thoroughly deserves support and success. If you're local, you probably already know about it. If you're visiting, this is a 'fabulous little place we found' type of restaurant.

Four of us went on a Wednesday at 7 ,by 9 it was nearly full so I would say booking essential An excellent , eclectic small range of unusual spirits and wines

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

This is certainly one of the best restaurants in York. They offer great value for money with a sophisticated 6 course dinner at 30 pounds. We enjoyed the very friendly service and the romantic atmosphere.
Forget restaurant chains, there are great individual restaurants out there like the "cochon aveugle" that are just waiting to be discovered!

“Unique for York”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Beautiful restaurant hosted by 2 very clever young individuals who have embraced the need for something unique within York city centre. Only 14/16 covers allows a personal touch to a beautiful bijou restaurant serving fabulous small tasting plates very well priced.
