We went to York to watch Tour de Yorkshire and ate at Ambiente. Next time Ambiente will be the first stop and we will be in no hurry to move on. First class food with a good veggie choice for one of the family. Super service despite being very busy. The kitchen had over-catered by a couple of items and... More

Went with friend's on a Friday night. Great food, engaging staff but the coffee wasn't quite.....right; a small quibble over an otherwise fun evening. Will be back.

Firstly the belly pork is something to start a war over! The rest of the food was amazing too. Fair to say I could have eaten the whole menu. We went there on a Monday night and our food arrived really quickly and the service was excellent (and cute). Would thouroughly recommend if you're looking for really tasty tapas and... More

This place never disappoints. Had dinner here with my recently and although we were squeezed into a table at the bar it worked fine and wasquite fun. There is always too much food to choose from on the menu, all of interesting and well cooked, and the wine and sherry selection seems to get better each time.

Excellent food, excellent wine, lovely staff, what more can you say! Wide selection of tapas -style dishes or shared plates. Very good wine list and an amazing selection of sherries! Going back tomorrow.

Visited here several times now and the food is always delicious and the most helpful of staff. Please will you open one in Hull or East Riding? Hull is going to be City of Culture in 2017!

We were on a mini break to York for a couple days and decided we fancied Spanish/Tapas and did we find a little gem in this place! The food was delicious, the chorizo and potato dish was to die for, so much so we're planning a day trip to York just to go back here!! Reccomend it to everyone I... More

I hadn't pre-booked so it was my fault I had to sit in the bar. The restaurant has a nice style but lack of attention to some details; no legroom at all at the window seats, no coat hangers etc in the loos, nice looking serving plates/ shells that are awful to eat from etc. With no idea of the...

We ate in Ambiente Fossgate last time we came up to York and enjoyed it so much we couldnt wait to return. Unfortunately its so understandably popular it was fully booked but we managed to get into their other place at The Monk Bar. The food was equally as good and the service exceptional, we were sort of talked into... More
