Excellent and helpful staff. We visited on one of the hottest days of the year however the staff were composed and helpful and we were placed next to a window. We were not rushed and the food was brought in good time and was well cooked and a great experience- we would definately recommend.

This was by far the nicest tapas I have ever had, my partner and I got 6 plates to share and a starter to share, which was by far enough to keep us full for the rest of the day. I shall be going again next time I visit York and will defiantly be recommending to friends and family.

Love love Ambiente. Grew up in Spain and this is probably the closest you'll get the the feel of places out there. The staff are all very friendly and are generally Spanish too. Some of the dishes on the menu isn't actually Spanish (strange!) but it's all very tasty. Went this evening and enjoyed as ever. Only small point today... More

Whilst in York for the weekend we visited Ambiente for an evening meal. First impressions were great and we really liked the quirkiness of the building and lay out. We are both big tapas fans and the food was fantastic, service was good and all in all we had a lovely experience. 4 stars rather than 5 as a couple... More

There are a Couple of Ambientes in York and I had mistakenly phoned the wrong one, but they sorted that out quickly. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable, particularly about the wine list; sherry is their specialty and we accepted their guidance. It was excellent. The different tapas dishes were beautiful, an excellent salad, meat balls, quesadillas among them.... More

Came here with my boyfriend for the 1st time. We are a big fan of Tapas and when we found this place we decided to cancel on a restaurant that we had booked for later on that evening. I am so glad we did! The food was amazing, service was excellent and our waiter was very attentative. I couldn't fault... More

Three of us went out for a celebratory tapas. We ordered a good bottle of Rioja some starters and main courses. Despite the restaurant not being full the service was slow. The starters were very good. When the main courses came I could see the way the waiter was transferring the for from the tray to the plate he had... More

Brilliant meal, as always, in this lively restaurant. Love the sherry 'flights', which are a great way to sample different tastes. Staff are always very knowledgeable indeed about what is on offer. Food is right up my street, which is why we return time and again.

We were after a quick dinner as we had plans for the evening and they were more than accommodating. We were both recommended delicious wines and a lovely muscle special that was on that day. Each dish was incredible! We only wish we had more time there for dessert! If we visit York again we would 100% return for more!

Thank Kim P
