My partner and I visited Ambiente today and received a lovely greeting, were promptly seated and ordered a lovely beer and excellent glass of red from a lovely waitress. We shared bread and oils to start which was delicious and then picked 6 tapas off the early menu (before 5pm). Unfortunately the food we then received was average at best,... More

Seven of us went for an evening meal and we all had a great time. The food was served promptly and with attention to detail. The only reason I've not given five stars is that one of my tapas courses never turned up! But that was a very minor irritation.

We visited as a family, the good was hot, tasty and there was something for everyone. Friendly service, did wait awhile for our Olives though. We will return 😊

The food was amazing - I had tiger prawns, sirloin steak and chorizo and potato - my wife had goats cheese, belly pork and chicken - all fantastic, followed by the assiette of... More

Visited as a birthday celebration for my daughter - on recommendation from friends. What a recommendation it was..... From the service on entering, the attentive, but friendly staff to the atmosphere and layout, first impressions were very positive. It only got better when we ordered the food. We ordered a range of mixed dishes to share (as is the Tapas... More

We ate here a couple of times recently. The food and service - excellent! It's small and quaint with a good atmosphere. The sangria was delicious. Can highly recommend it.

I don't have tapas much but we found this restaurant in York and it was very good! The steak and the prawn dishes were fantastic! Think we paid around £30 for 6 dishes and drinks and it's pretty much in the centre! Would come here again!

We had a really pleasant meal with great wine. It's tapas so of course it will be a little pricey for the amount of food but a good night and very helpful staff.

6 of us went for my daughters birthday recently. A pleasant atmosphere with friendly staff and a mouthwatering selection of veggie tapas.

Service: Our waitress was a friendly and enthusiastic lady. Clearly knew the menu very well and was extremely helpful and cheerful! Food: For three people, we ordered 6 tapas which was more than enough but if you're very hungry then maybe an additional one each would be good. I don't think I've had tastier green beans in my life!
