Celebrating a couple of family birthdays, Skosh is a go to choice for special occasions. We had several plates, which were served as and when they were prepared, rather than arriving all at once. It’s a tapas type experience but none the worse for that....There wasn’t a weak dish, each was tasty and designed for sharing with your fellow diners. Skosh is a popular York eatery, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to get a table without advanced booking.More

Lovely restaurant - considering the standard of cooking, it is a relaxed and informal place to eat. There was a real range of ages there and it was full. The food is delicious - small plates but we had plenty to eat. Each dish comes...separately so you can take the time to enjoy each dish. Beautifully presented and very very tasty. Would definitely recommend to allMore

Really delicious food - my other half is not good at sharing food so was slightly concerned about how it would work out. They bring each dish out separately so you have time savour each course. Innovative and beautifully presented food we had more than...sufficient to eat. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and we hope to returnMore

We’ve heard such good reviews of Skosh, and they are all correct. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and the friendly and knowledgable staff advised us and served us beautifully. The food more than lived up to expectations. We enjoyed...the fact that the dishes weren’t all served at once (the restaurant specialises in small dishes and recommends you order 6 or 7 between two people), but were brought out gradually so you could savour the food and enjoy it at its freshest. All dishes were delicious, with original and very carefully chosen flavour profiles. A real dining experience. We will definitely be going again.More

Visited this restaurant as a surprise from my wife to celebrate my 50th birthday...if there was a restaurant in heaven this would be it, quite simply the best night of food I’ve ever had and will live long in the memory.

Excellent. Tasty, light, super balanced flavours. Enjoyed every morsel of every plate. Exactly how I like to eat. Great service and very good value for the level of cooking.

Brilliant in every way. Service you can’t buy with genuine and infectious enthusiasm for great food. Every mouthful packed with flavour, had to go congratulate the kitchen for making our weekend. Unbelievably tasty dishes across the board and legendary cocktails. And not crazy prices (unlike...Roots). You will not be disappointed!More

Food was delicious and service was great. Chocolate & Olive slice was a highlight, though everything we had was amazing. Would definitely return.

Ate here last night for my husbands birthday (had to book months in advance). As always, every dish was fantastic and the flavours totally superb. We had 8 small dishes including 2 deserts, Each of them were beautifully presented and the combinations of items on...the plate mixed perfectly. Can't fault this place and its our go too restaurant for any special occassion.More

Went yesterday for lunch. Absolutely perfect in every way. Informal, relaxed ambience combined with spectacular and imaginative food. The presentation of the food is stunning. The highlight was the duck which is served as pate, a confit dish and breast. Skosh is clearly on a...Geordie bucket list as everyone seemed to be from Newcastle! Our waitress Jasmine was lovely and very good at her job.More
