Wonderful tapas and wines in a small restaurant just behind York Minster. Tall tables in the airy main bar room or more secluded, private tables in the restaurant.

We decided to give this restaurant a visit while on a short stay in York. As fans of tapas, the three of us who ate here agreed this is the best tapas we've had. The service was also excellent, and the staff were keen to recommend certain dishes and were knowledgable about what they were serving up.

Came here with my boyfriend one Saturday night and sat in the spot next to the window. Has such a lovely atmosphere, we ordered about 8 dishes between us as they were quite small however we were full! The wine is gorgeous, they don't rush you either as we liked to take our time with each dish - we felt... More

Visited last week with girlfriend and parents was blown away by value for money and quality of the food. Having visited barcelona a few months ago I can vouch for authenticity of the food.

Wonderful tapas here, have been on many occasions. Good range of vegetarian options and clearly labeled. The mozzarella and risotto croquets are so delicious (my boyfriend would recommend the Belly pork)! Everything is reasonably priced and made to a high standard, which continues through to the desserts as well, as this where some restaurants drop the ball. All the staff... More

Fully booked but managed to squeeze us in. Glad they did! This super busy place had a great atmosphere and the most tastiest range of tapas. Did order bottles of lager but the waitress gave us pints, which was not the nicest drink.

Visited with my girlfriend. Really like the look of the place and the building is very nice to look at too. Service was excellent, food was excellent, some of the dishes I think were a little over priced but we were both stuffed. Would like to come back in a group and try more of the menu. A must for...

Visited Ambiente on Sunday evening with two friends and we had a superb meal. The ambience was great, wine top class and the food fantastic. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Pablo was a particular star, extremely helpful and his choices were excellent. Highly recommend the sword fish, meatballs and sole. The Cava top price was as good as... More
