Delicious Spanish food and excellent service with lovely atmosphere in an old, well-maintained building. We had the suggested tapas for beginners and it was delicious. The crème brule was also delicious.

Nice restaurant. We had the Tapas special, a selection of 3 tapas for £9.95. Good selection to choose from. However menu did not live up to expectations. Lightly dusted Hake came as heavily battered deep fried. The hake was the last dish of mine to arrive,. Everyone in our party had just about finished their food before my last dish arrived. Disappointing.

We saw this restaurant while wandering around York during the day and liked the look of the menu, but were put off as we thought it only had limited seating on high stools sat around barrels. However, when we walked past in the evening we realised this was the bar area and there was a separate restaurant upstairs. The food was amazing and being Tapas you could order as much as you wanted. After having a large lunch, this was ideal for a light meal. We ordered breads with oil, followed by 4 tapas dishes, which were all excellent. Given that we also had a bottle of wine and shared an amazing cheesecake, the whole bill only came to £45, which was fantastic value for the quality of the food. We'd definitely visit here again.

My family and I enjoyed a beautiful meal in Ambiente, Fossgate. I was expecting it to be very quiet as it was a Monday evening but was pleasantly surprised at how buzzing the place was. Every dish we had was delicious, I particularly enjoyed the fish dishes which were so tasty. I would recommend Ambiente for any celebration and the service couldn't have been any better. This is how a dining out experience should be!

We had booked a table for 8:15 but table wasn't quite ready for us so had a drink at the bar for about 15 minutes which was fine, but it was extremely busy with people waiting and eating that it felt very small and cramped. The restaurant wAs full and tables quite close together so felt very busy. But on the plus side the food was delicious and couldn't fault any of the dishes we ordered, the waiting staff were efficient and food arrived within a short time of ordering. We would return.
