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.
Interesting tapas and particularly like the choice of sherry, great that information on types is given. The whole parry of 4 enjoyed the food, drink and ambience. As near to Spain as we could get!
Lovely food and very friendly staff but the service was very slow.
We had a really lovely visit, the atmosphere was relaxing, the service was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. Would definitely come back again, it was a really enjoyable experience. Thank you.
I was quite disappointed with our evening. One of tapas was forgotten and although the kind waiter was very apologetic and gave me a free one , it should have been noted that all my friends ordered two or more tapas and I only received one. Also once I finally received my dish the chicken was very dry and not very tasty I ate it though as I was very hungry after waiting so long . It was quite disappointing but the waiter was very kind and great that he took it off the bill but won’t be returning in a hurry!
The prices have increased and the menu choice is not as good as it used to be.
My friends and I had a lovely, leisurely lunch, with great food and wine, and friendly service, in beautiful surroundings.
Excellent service very attentive & food was lovely.
Thank you for a fantastic evening. The food, service and vibe upstairs in the restaurant was brilliant. We will be back soon!
£71 for 5 plates of tapas and bowl of olives, 1 125ml rose wine, 1 coke and a shandy, is in my opinion extremely over priced, the tapas itself wasn't authentic tapas as stated on your menu, we will not be returning
As a continued fan of Ambiente from when it first opened, I'm becoming disappointed with the constant revisions of the menu and the incessant need to take off the most popular and tasty dishes on the menu. The Chorizo Y Potatas is now back but just like tar, rather than the sweet, delicious sauce it used to be. The Albondigas is now with a 'meh' sauce, which used to be with a light, fragrant thai-style sauce. The mushrooms that now just have a lump of greasy blue cheese, rather than the delicious taragon sauce they used to be. I could go on, but please just be true to the original menus and ideas you had. They were the best. By all means add and change some dishes, but please take advantage of returning customers who love your staples. I had promised friends staying with us all of the above things, and instead got £100 worth of food that tasted all the same.
My sister and I had a very enjoyable evening, wonderful food, wine and great service. Thank you Julie
We have never been disappointed by the food here, and this was no exception. Great food, excellent wine. We ordered too much because it was so tempting and couldn't eat it all. Roll on next visit
Having visited the restaurant several times in the last 3 years, the service, quality of the food and atmosphere has been first class. I shall definitely be visiting again next time I am in York
The paella (in particular) was lovely and there was plenty of it. Really helpful, engaging staff and very reasonable prices. This is on my list of places to revisit in York!
Aubergine fritters were a little underdone and flabby, everything else delicious
Lovely food and a great choice for pescatarians. We also liked not being rushed: the dishes came 2 or 3 at a time, just right for sharing between our group of 5. Staff were very friendly. Thank you!
As always another super meal at Ambiente, Goodramgate. Never disappoints.
excellent food and great wine, friendly service and relax atmosphere
Have eaten here before. My wife and I Visited during York restaurant week and chose 3 tapas each for £11.95pp. All 6 tapas were delicious and filling and we had a bottle of red wine to accompany it. This was easy drinking and reasonably priced. We visited on Tuesday lunch and there were 4 other groups/couples in at that time. Good value
Excellent service, beautiful food.
Really enjoyed our meal here - the staff were great and the food was fantastic.
I've eaten at the Fossgate Ambiente many times and really enjoyed it, but I was quite disappointed with our meal at the Goodramgate branch. The vegetarian sharing platter (£11.95?) did not match the menu description - the artichokes were not griddled, but were cold and looked like they were from a jar, and the "roast vegetable salad" consisted of a couple of rounds of aubergine and courgette. The whole thing was very sparse, although the tapenade was good. The bravas in the Fossgate restaurant are usually a good portion, but here it looked as though just one or two small potatoes had been sliced up and fried. The bravas sauce and aioli were tasty, but again, the portion was so meagre that it felt like very poor value for money. The other dishes we ordered were better - the pan catalan was very good and the coliflor marroqui was a creative vegan option. The service was quite good, although the wine was very slow to arrive. The brown decor in the downstairs room was really turgid and the whole place felt a little tired. It's a pity because I know that Ambiente does try to be a creative and accessible restaurant, but I feel this particular one has lost its way somewhat.
All the waiting staff were lovely and the food was delicious! Thank you!
