A well thought out tapas bar and restaurant. Caters for gluten free and other dietary requirements, with good sized portions well cooked. Good value sherry and wine by both glass and bottle. Certainly not your standard tapas location!

We arrived in York on the Sunday evening for our trip to the races lasting 6 nights. We were shown to our table and asked if we wanted the bread and other sharers including roasted charred chillies covered in salt. Bread came with virgin olive oil with balsamic in the bottom. Then we all chose 2 meals each with a... More

As a student, my favourite place to eat in York for a number of reasons: - Price is suitable for most people, definitely within student budget - Staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble - Quality of the food is outstanding. It's a great place to go for those who haven't tried tapas before, or those who already... More

This is a very busy restaurant so my first recommendation is to book in advance if you want to eat at this restaurant. Atomsphere is good as it is very busy and people seems to enjoy themselves Food is nice but .... Certain dishes were made to our surprise (in a good way) but one dish in particular we were... More

We went to ambient as a group of 12 and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and attentive x the food was gorgeous and really good value for money x they even packed out leftovers up for us so that we could take back to our apartment for friends that were joining us later

Will definitely be back here! The food was impeccable and the price was great - 52 pound for the two of us with 7 tapas dishes, a jug of sangria and a beer. Service was a little slow at times but staff were always around, I think they were just quite busy. Used to go to la tasca for tapas... More

I have been here a lot! My boyfriend and i went through a phase of frequenting! It can be as expensive or inexpensive depending how much and what you order. Personally i think this place is better than the fossgate branch as it is more secluded and you are treated like a values customer instead of just another customer, plus... More

We decided on tapas during a day visit to York. The food was all fresh tasted lovely and seemed very authentic. Our son who is only 4 struggled to eat the food but that was probably our fault due to our choices. They didn't seem to have a separate kids menu which might have helped but understand in a tapas...

This was our first time here. Im glad we booked as the restaurant was full on Saturday night. There is a wide selection of tapas with complimenting wines to suit everyone's tastes. Service was good too. Will definitely visit again.
