Description: Having forged a fantastic reputation for culinary excellence over the past twelve years, independent business no8 offers an exceptional dining experience in all of their outlets in the beautiful city of York along with a dedicated outside catering team that works across Yorkshire panning special events. We believe that outstanding fresh Yorkshire produce should be the star of the show. Our beautiful bistro is located on the hustling and bustling Gillygate, a street full of independent shops and restaurants which leads into the heart of York. With our intimate front room, spacious garden room and hidden garden that basks in the York Minsters shade and overlooks the city walls it is the perfect place to come and savour all York has to offer. With local art work available to admire or buy on our bistro walls you can sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious meal. Whether you're popping in for breakfast, brunch, a leisurely lunch, afternoon tea or a tasty dinner, we know you will love the unique feel, friendly team and delicious home-made food.

“Amazing little find! Excellent restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2016

What an amazing little place. We visited here for lunch last week during our trip to York. A great value lunch at £12.50 for 2 courses. The gin cocktail was fantastic too. I had the Pate starter and the meatloaf burger, both of which were fantastic. The burger was melt in the mouth with homemade chips, absolutely fantastic food. A lovely little place with a great atmosphere. The staff were very knowledgeable about the beer choices and the menu in general. I wish we had room for dessert but the 2 courses were more that enough. I will definitely be back here on my next visit to York.

“The numbers game”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2016 via mobile

It's said Indians invented numbers but Cafe No8 is British influenced, compact unpretentious.
Soup of the day a beautiful beetroot, orange and sage, with artesian bread. Roast lamb cooked to perfection the veg a lovely selection with fab roasties it's easy to see why Cafe No 8 figures so high on Tripadvisors lists.

Cafe No 8 is a ten out of ten place wish I had room for a pud.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2016 via mobile

Situated in York Art Gallery - although you don't need to visit gallery of you just want the cafe.

Small cafe offering good menu selection. Great range for light lunch or a quick snack. Everything is made to order and is fresh.

Staff pleasant and location is perfectly central ie close to Minster.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2016

Great tasting food, especially the main course of steak with a wonderful balance of roast shallots and a white sauce. I would explain the first course as experimental,looked like a dessert but in fact was a very light starter of salmon and beetroot with horseradish. Certainly a taste experience that one.
A very attentive service throughout, a full restaurant and good atmosphere.
