Great service, delicious food and a lovely rooftop terrace in the sun
Food was fantastic and staff where very friendly and very informative
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 !!
Food was first class definitely book again
First time visiting, we found it hard to find the entrance as it was covered by a Kennedy’s gazebo 😅 fab meal, cocktails and service will deffo be back!
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.
Fabulous as always
Great service and food. Recommended.
Loved it, would definitely visit again!
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.
AMAZING FOOD! Brilliant service and drinks we will be back soon!
Children’s food took too long to come as from sister restaurant Food was average Chicken thigh dish was very oily and unpleasant and meatball dish average However cheese and meat beautiful Staff were lovely however
Brilliant food, friendly staff, cute outdoor dining space.
Considering it was heavily raining and cold, we were warm, dry and really well attended to. Would def return and will recommend. Thank you.
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.
Great service, food was fantastic with a lot of variety. Doorman was very welcoming and easy to talk to and Anna our waitress for the evening was very helpful and friendly! Will be coming again.
Really incredibly excellent food, and the wine is lovely. The service was very quick and also friendly, would definitely recommend.
Excellent service, tasty food and massive portions.
Lovely waitress, shame we haven’t asked for her name. Very attentive to our requests and very friendly chatty with us.
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.
We love coming back to Sontano. The staff are great, the drinks are amazing. The atmosphere this time was perfect, being on the roof terrace was a genius idea. Thanks guys
This was our first visit to Sotano and we loved everything about it. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to visit again.
Absolutely fantastic food and drink, cannot recommend enough! Fully recommend the calamari...
Had a lovely time the food was amazing, heaters kept the outdoor area really warm too! & the staff were fantastic
