Have been to ambiente a few times - drawn back by the truly delicious food. It used to be a bit of a hidden gem - back streets of york and a little out the way but no longer! And unfortunately it getting busier hasn't improved it. Never being able to get a table in a Saturday without a reservation... More

We visited the Goodramgate restaurant. Cosy setting. A fantastic range of tapas items, and more than just your standard tapas fayre, particularly for the veggies. We also sampled several different sherry types which was a really enjoyable and interesting experience. Service was excellent, very friendly and the staff were very knowledgable about their sherries. Would strongly recommend it.

Went here for my partner's birthday, having never been before. Seated and ordered quickly, the rosé sangria is really good. We were warned that with them being so busy, food may take a little longer to get to us, which we appreciated and didn't mind. However, we ordered tomato bread to eat while we waited for our main tapas dishes,... More

A lovely evening at Ambiente on Goodramgate. From the welcome as we wandered in to the service from the excellent and friendly staff. No booking but got the last table. Great selection of drinks from Cider to great wine and sherry while we decided what to order. Staff explained size of portions so we could work out what we wanted... More

Lovely place, very quiet mid week in January, which for us was great. A small selection, though nice food. We chose the vegetarian platter for two, which is great value. The service just needs to be a little better, though well worth the wait for the fantastic taste.

Visited Ambiente on a Monday night, needless to say it was quite quiet! The restaurant is very cosy and has lots of delicious looking dishes to try. We started out with the sharing meat platter which was extremely tasty and we were convinced to try the sherry tasting glasses before opting for our usual bottle of wine. The sherry wasn't... More

Ate here for dinner one Friday night. We hadn't reserved but they were able to squeeze us in for a table in the bar area. Good selection of tapas- both traditional and more unusual! The patatas bravas were delicious as were the calamari. Would recommend

I love this place! My partner booked this as a surprise on our weekend break in York because we love Tapas. Mainly because we like an excuse to try absolutely everything. Although the menu wasn't that big I loved everything on it. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and feels quite intimate. If I ever visited York again, I would... More

Visited Ambiente with my wife on a Saturday afternoon after a recommendation from a friend. We sat in the bar area and ordered tapas off the bar menu and one dish off the restaurant menu. Whilst the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful in suggesting what to have, unfortunately, after an hour's wait one of our dishes didn't arrive despite... More
