2 for 1 at Sotano

Discover a hidden gem of a restaurant in the very centre of the historic city of York with the brilliant Sotano. Nestled along the famous cobbled street of Little Stonegate in the very heart of York, Sotano brings the flavours of Spain to the table, albeit with a modern twist. Just steps from the iconic York Minster, Sotano dishes up an exciting menu of Spanish and Mediterranean style tapas and sharing platters to a mixed crowd of locals and tourists.

Head Chef Carlos Martinez Otazo offers an inspired menu of cleverly crafted tapas, drawing upon his South American and Spanish roots. Wonderfully fresh ingredients are used, many of which have been locally sourced and some of which have been imported from Spain. The tempura squid rings with aioli are divine whilst the salmon and chorizo burger on artisan bread with pickled cucumber is a sensation. The Jamon Iberico Mantanegra is carved to order and a true luxury to the taste buds whilst sharing platter of Spanish charcuterie meats and cheeses are the perfect sharing dish and accompany a glass of fine wine to perfection. Finish off with classic churros topped with melted chocolate or a Catalan Cream.

Speaking of drinks, Sotano doubles up as a great little bar serving classic cocktails, craft beers and one of kind gins along with a superb wine list featuring many Spanish varieties. Exposed brick walls and stylish leather banquettes create the perfect look bringing the character features of the building and modern design together in perfect harmony.

Important Information

Please note: The tastecard discount is not available throughout December.

    Pleasant Basement tapas bar next to Kennedy's on little stonegate. The tapas dishes were nicely done, tasty and different, although seemed comparably expensive. However this was balanced by the tastecard 2 for 1 offer. After the bread and oils starter two dishes each were quite adequate. "
