Best we've had outside of Spain

Went here for Saturday lunch with the kids and we all loved it. Loads of choice so something for everyone. Had the flight of sherries - something I've never had before which was also very nice. Will be coming back!

Excellent tapas. Decent variety of choices, and all our choices but one (which was the swordfish which was dry) were outstanding. Nice, informal atmosphere a couple blocks from the Minster. Sangria's were too sweet for us so we just switched to a nice Rioja, but we would definitely return. Booking certainly helps as they fill up fast.

I visited here with my husband on a recent visit to York. We went for Sunday lunch. We had 5 tapas which we shared. They were all really good price was good as well. The restaurant decor is lovely I loved the seats covered in sacking. There were tables and chairs outside on the day we visited. Will definitely be... More

Nice place with subtle decor and a good atmosphere. Two great starters especially the calamari. We went for paella for two - it was quite tasty but the presentation could have been better. Sherry done very well in "flights". Taster of three different types with tasting notes. If we had gone for a different main, I suspect I would be... More

We went for a birthday meal as we love paella! We ordered the chicken and chorizo paella and expected to wait at least 35mins as it takes a while to cook. Possibly an hour after we had ordered the waitress came to explain that there had been a problem with our order printing, so the kitchen hadn't even started cooking... More

We'd passed Ambiente Tapas on our walk into town from our rental apartment at Monk's Bar and having only eaten Tapas at a local restaurant in Portobello, decided the fact that it was always very busy was a good sign! We tried to get a table on the Wednesday around 7pm but they had nothing until at least 9, so... More

There were no tables in the restaurant which on a Monday night before school hols assured me this was a good place to eat, The Spanish manageress explained the same menu was... More
