Amazing tapas dishes and a good range of sherry, staffs knowledge of choosing the right sherry for your personal taste was very helpful. Perfect if you want to have a taste of Spain in York. Would highly recommend.

This is very worth a visit. I love tapas. But this is not the standard "old favourites" sort of place. It's very different and very, very good. I asked about their menu - inspired through the cuisine of Jerez. Never been but must be worth...More

After reading the reviews we were really excited about visiting, unfortunately we didn’t enjoy ourselves as much as we hoped. The meatballs were tasty but very tough, the beef stew lacked flavour and the chocolate fudge cake was actually brownie. However the staff were great,...More

Wonderful authentic Spanish tapas. The food is always beautifully presented and tastes delicious. A real family favourite. The staff are really attentive. Would highly recommend as you can eat as much or as little as you like.

We stopped for a late lunch and what a lovely surprise... really tasty tapas with decent sized portions. Good wine list and flight of sherry definitely goes well with deserts. The octopus was very good and we enjoyed every dish. Worth a visit

4 vegans and 2 meat eaters on a bank holiday Monday evening went to Ambiente. Service was efficient and prompt. We were done in about an hour - no lingering and felt a little rushed even. The food was good. There are quite a few...More

Will certainly be returning to Ambiente at Goodramgate. We took some very choosy vegetarian friends, who, like us, absolutely loved the well-cooked, extremely tasty tapas on offer. And we appreciated the unusual opportunity to taste & try 3 sherries (with a bit of history/information about...More

Hi Shaun, Ambiente Goodramgate is around a 15 minute walk from Marmaduke Hotel. It's quite a nice walk and a relatively simple route: just walk straight down Clifton, which becomes Bootham. Keep going straight under Bootham... More
