A little gem just nicely tucked away from the centre but easy walking distance, I was recommended visiting and now I am doing the same...... great friendly service and awesome tasting dishes from a small yet plentiful evening meal menu.. a must book in advance place though, people being turned away on the evening ... that says it all !! Black pudding & ham hock croquette starter was amazing, served with a perfectly cooked poach egg and grain mustard creme fraiche.. 14 hour feather blade beef was melt in the mouth, served with bubble & squeak and horseradish cream and amazing beef jus, Pork belly with pork bonbon and fondant potato with quince was also amazing. Desserts were no different, amazing and tasty, lemon posset with rhubarb compote and Eton mess ice cream was a real palate cleanser, while the dark chocolate delice was rich with the booze cherries and the most amazing licorice ice cream...., Easily 5 star rating from me ......

One of our most memorable meal during our trip to UK was in this tiny little cafe around the corner from the main touristy attractions. This humble place serves beautiful food. The waitress was lovely and friendly. Love the horseradish cream and beetroot as the starter. Very aromatic and enjoyable. The risotto was damn perfect. The roast with gravy and yorkshire pudding was heavenly. It was the beginning of our love affair with Yorkshire Pudding as it was so inspiring.

Fabulous food in a cozy atmosphere. Amazing steak. Great service and very friendly staff. The black sesame ice cream was delicious and unique. Recommend for an elevated dining experience in York for a great price.

Describing it as bijou would be to do an injustice. We were in a group of five and we were treated very nicely by loving and warm staff. Between us we ordered a variety of menu items and all of us left happy and contented with such a beautifully presented and delicious meal. This is not something that suits an average student budget, perhaps more for the parents of students visiting. Located in the heart of York, with great decor and high ceilings, gave it an ambience that will last for many memories. The walls were festooned with a number of photographs which were very interesting. I can thoroughly recommend the fish cakes for starters.

A true gem! This small and cozy bistro gave everything. The lighting and ambience well thought out. The menu all looked delicious and we struggled with what to choose! Our choices didn’t disappoint. Food excellent, well presented and delivered by the friendliest of staff. We had a really lovely evening and highly recommend.

This was not our first visit to cafe no 8, we often book when we visit york. We didn’t have starter, both of us had the lamb, this was beautifully cooked, one criticism was we would have liked more veg ( one small piece of carrot and one small sprig of broccoli) and no option it seemed to buy more veg. We both had the chocolate and black ice cream dessert, this was again another beautifully put together dessert. This place serves beautifully cared for food with excellent service.

A delightful bistro with a small but perfectly constructed menu. It was difficult to decide on what we wanted to eat as all the dishes sounded wonderful. The fishcakes and lamb dishes were truly delicious. Looking forward to returning.

We booked in advanced and spent a great night. We were seated in the backyard room and it was cosy and relatively quiet. The food was good and we went for a mix of seafood and meat. I definitely recommend the banoffee pie that was really good.

Busy small restaurant where the welcome is friendly and the food simply amazing. Yorkshire Lamb main was a feast to the eye and delicious. Prawns were a delight and the deserts well, don’t miss them as properly made and home made.

We had a wonderful lunch today! I’ve often walked past this restaurant and have been tempted for years! So we decided to give it a try! We didn’t need to book and was able to get a table straight away. The staff were friendly and attentive. We chose a main and dessert each and weren’t disappointed. The food was fresh and steaming, and full of flavour! It was beautifully presented and was so delicious! You can’t fault anything! We will definitely be back again to sample the rest of the menu!!
