Went in for my birthday lunch, very good it was too. Tasty, fresh food served by a person interested in making sure we enjoyed it! Very casual way of dining, keep on ordering until you're full!

I'd read good things about this tapas bar /restaurant and am always on the look out for decent local places to eat. Late lunch on Monday seemed a good time to try it out... had received an offer by e mail 3 dishes for under a tenner. Got there to be told we could only use the offer in the... More

Ambiente Tapas is a truely authentic, delicious, tapas restaurant set in a lovely environment. The service is excellent and menu choice both interesting and varied. The flavours in the dishes are amazing, (especially the serrano wrapped dates with almonds), the portions are just the right size and extremely reasonable in price. Leave room for the desserts though ! I would... More

We were very impressed with Ambiente. There's a good & varied selection of tapas on offer (my favourite was the pigeon breast!) & the portions are just enough in size to satisfy without making you overly full. The restaurant had a nice, busy atmosphere when we visited & the staff were friendly & helpful throughout. It's definitely somewhere I'd recommend... More

The food is very delicious and there is variety in the menu. Anyone can eat there meat lovers, vegetarians and pescetarian. It is... More

Visited again and the food was lovely and not too expensive. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and great sherry. The only downside is that they rush you. They brought our second course before we'd finished our starter - that happened last time too. Slow down a bit...some people need a rest between courses!

Have eaten here last year when we stayed in York, and had no hesitation in booking again this year. We were shown to our table, and given ample time to peruse the menu, and order some drinks. The food was wonderful yet again, we have a sharing platter to start, and then two meat, fish and vegetarian tapas, and I... More

We were expecting a great meal in view of most previous reviews. In the event, the tapas were unexceptional and we all found most of them very salty. A second bottle of wine we ordered didn't materialise and at the end of the evening we were given a unitemised bill so could not be sure what we had been charged... More
