Waitress was very helpful and friendly however we booked the table for 5pm on the same day and the manager told us we had to vacate by 7pm which wasn't a problem because we are quick eaters and don't like to linger. He told us again upon arrival and then the waiter reminded us that we needed to order AGAIN... More

To begin our meal we ordered a flight of sherry each with nuts and olives. After a few minutes of waiting the sherry arrived with an apology that they'd run out of olives. Who has ever heard of a tapas bar running out of olives! The nuts did not appear until we asked again for them. They'd clearly been forgotten.... More

We were a party of six, made up of some rather fussy eaters, and all enjoyed our meal. A very impressive selection of tapas, more than enough to suit all appetites, the aubergines especially were fabulous. Would happily go again.

A lunch time quick couple of tapas turned into something special. As all good days are, there were no plans to stay here but once immersed in the menu and wines we had a lovely afternoon spent casually sampling the tapas whilst also imbibing in a leisurely vino or two.

Dinner for 4, including 2 vegans. Having watched Wales narrowly lose, headed for Ambiente and were not disappointed. Quickly to our table, and although we were moved on at 9.15, did not do too much to spoil our evening. Food was fab and great to see our vegan guests were well catered for - it makes such a difference. Mixed... More

Couldn't fault the food as it was very nice, however I ordered more drinks when the food arrived, but even after asking where they were three times they still did not arrive until after we had finished our meal, bit of a let down

After having the best Paella I'd ever had almost a year before, I returned to Ambiente for lunch and sampled the Tapas menu. It was sensational. Without a doubt the best Tapas restaurant I've visited in the UK.

Thank Alan M
