About Ambiente Goodramgate
Ambiente's York restaurant is situated just inside the city walls close to the Minster. Laid out over two floors, the restaurant specialises in Mediterranean inspired tapas dishes alongside a comprehensive range of sherries & wines.
Unfortunately a poor experience here. Restaurant cold and lacked lustre in atmosphere. The patatas bravas were cold, the prawns overdone and tasteless, and the cauliflower was burnt, oily and heavy. Maybe it was because i dined on a monday night?
A delicious meal in a lovely restaurant :)
Superb food and service as ever, some of the best tapas I have tasted
Generally excellent though unfortunately one dish was cold.
Took 8 middle age men from different parts of the country to this restaurant and asked the staff to entertain us. The variety of sherries were novel and the food plentiful. A great evening.
Great food at a really reasonable price and the service is great too!
Superb food very authentic tapas.
We had a really lovely time. Great service from the staff and lovely food but it is such a shame that you no longer do the small dishes of paella. That was always a staple to our order and have to say we left the restaurant feeling something had been lacking from our meal. Please bring that paella in small dishes back to your menu!!!
Great food friendly
Very tasty tapas , particularly loved the calamari and the service was spot on.
We hadn't been to the Goodramgate Ambiente for quite a while but having had such a lovely time on Saturday we will go there more often. The staff were all lovely and friendly, we were served with wine and food quickly but were not rushed. The beef cheeks were my favourite - beautiful flavours and very tender. The spanish sausage and goats cheese were amazing too. The atmosphere is cosy but vibrant, the only very small criticism would be that there is nowhere to wait for your table if it isn't ready where you are not in the way, we sat at a bench and had a drink while we waited but we were constantly in the way of staff who were trying to do their job. This was only a very minor thing as everybody was very nice and we didn't need to wait too long, we were also given a delicious sharing platter while we waited, I just felt sorry for the staff having to constantly squeeze past, maybe one less table would do the job?
Lovely food and a nice atmosphere. Great place for a bite to eat.
I have never been keen in Tapas but my visit last Saturday changed my mind. The service was helpful and swift and despite being in the company of three men with healthy appetites there was plenty to eat! Thank you.
Great food and service. Excellent vegetarian tapas options.
It was my partner's birthday. She is gluten, wheat and soya intolerant. i advised them of all these fact when I booked but they handled them with great aplomb. The food was great! My partner was so impressed with the Millionaire Chocolate Pudding that she said she would be happy for it to be her last meal. This was our third visit and it was the best out of a very good bunch. Thank you
Absolutely delicious tapas, as always at Ambiente. We keep coming back so it must be worth the 3+ hour round trip from home! Definitely recommend. Nicest goats cheese I’ve had anywhere and the Chicken Marrakesh was to die for.
Great place o eat, excellent value, fast service.
Fantastic food and setting
The kitchen must have been having a difficult day. Service was very slow and the food was luke warm. The smoke alarm went off which was somewhat disturbing, although the staff handled it in.
Food arrived swimming in oil. Would not recommend
Our favourite Tapas restaurant in York
Everything was fantastic. I recommend bringing a pen so you can mark on the menus when ordering, particularly if you have a large group sharing tapas.
A delicious meal, it was hard to limit our choices to three as we wanted to try everything! Although a larger table would have been better to fit all the tapas on. Next time we'll have to leave room for desserts!
We had a lovely evening. The waiter was a little too enthusiastic about impressing us, and a lot of his actions were unnecessary. The food and wine were excellent.
