Popped in for a quick bite to eat and drink. Just ordered chorizo and cabbage, lamb tangine stew and some bread. Decent portion size and filled us up. Food was great tasting and friendly staff. Worth a visit

This place describes itself as dog friendly in bar area. However, judging by staff reaction...it's kind of dog friendly...if no one is in there and they need your money... but if busy dogs are most definitely not welcome. Tried to book a table in advance but it was obvious our custom wasn't welcome

We visited the restaurant last night and had a really fantastic experience. The food was really fresh, tasty and great portion sizes for Tapas. We especially enjoyed the MORCILLA. This was so tasty and was cooked to perfection. I had a selection of different seafood and again was all cooked really well and was a taste sensation. The best part... More

Friendly staff and a good medium sized range of dishes, including a set menu for those who still haven't gotten round to trying Tapas yet (why, why haven't you?). Dishes were prompt to arrive and very very tasty. The pork belly was delicious and a little spicy and the aubergine fritters melted in the mouth. Would go again without hesitation.

Visited here at the begining of February. The food was really delicious, the choice of dishes was great and the service so helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, just wish I lived closer so I could visit more often.

Came here as we were looking for tapas and this was right next to our hotel. It's just around the corner from York minister as well. There's a downstairs bar area with restaurant seating at the back and upstairs. All the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. We ordered five tapas dishes and a side snack. This...

This is an exceptionally good tapas restaurant. The atmosphere is modern and the tables are not too close together. Though there were a lot of clientele, the noise level was low. We ordered 3-4 tapas each and had plenty of variety and volume of food. Everything was well-prepared and absolutely delicious. We did not have to wait very long after... More

We were so lucky on our visit to York....the sun was out and having walked round the walls we dropped down on to Goodramgate and bumped straight in to Ambiente Tapas Bar, what a little gem, we were greeted very warmly and shown to a table upstairs where our adventure in to Tapas began. Totally blown away by the different... More
