Lovely, cosy little bar and restaurant. They had an extensive drinks menu for every pallet. And the food was delicious! We sat out on the terrace, it was pouring down outside, but did not even notice. The area was dry, warm and very relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for any occasion, but particularly an intimate date with someone special !!

Sat on the roof terrace with a friend, enjoyed delicious cocktails recommended by our server and equally as delicious tapas. Decent value for money. Would highly recommend.

Lovely evening, great service and very tasty food - best tapas in York by a country mile. Big fans of the ‘old’ indoor basement venue but very impressed with the new outdoor set-up.

Food was delicious and brilliant portion sizes so great value for money. My partner is Spanish and since we can’t go visit there, it was lovely to have an authentic experience to remind him of home. Only thing we would say could be improved is the alioli, it tasted more like garlic mayo. Still nice but not quite the same.

We picked Sotano initially due to the promise of a heated courtyard - and whilst that did exactly deliver, we had the added bonus of thoroughly enjoying our visit. Food was delicious, staff lovely and not badly priced at all. Just one minor point was that it would have been nice if the food could have been staggered being brought to the table, rather than all at once. If we are back in York, we will definitely visit again.

We were really impressed by everything at Satano. The staff were brilliant, the food was outstanding - probably the best tapas we've eaten - and we were kept warm and safe. We'll certainly be booking again soon.
