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.
We’ve visited Goodramgate’s Ambiente a few times now and always had excellent service and delicious food. However last night the service was only adequate, the waiter seemed to be more interested in going over and above for other tables forgetting our water, taking order for mains, check backs after food. There were quite a few key dishes missing which wasn’t the servers fault but it’s a shame when it’s tapas and you’re really wanting to try certain dishes, hopefully we’ll get to try the lamb and mushroom dish another time. It was a quite Sunday night so I guess it’s just not been as good as previously, but it was still fine.
Food was excellent. Service was a little slow, but we had plenty of time and it was worth it for fresh cooked food. There were four of us and and we all enjoyed it.
Extremely expensive cider. £8 a pint, but otherwise great food and atmosphere. Friendly staff. We will be back but avoiding the cider.
Excellent food service and value - thoroughly recommended
Delicious food and amazing service. We will definitely visit again when we are next in York.
Lovely meal and good service
Still one of the best restaurants in York! Food is incredible, service is friendly and welcoming and for the quality of food the price is incredibly reasonable.
Superb tasty food, great selection too. We have been several times before, the fact we keep coming back says it all!
Wonderful food and excellent service
Amazing food and service!
Table was ready when we arrived, I had asked for a table upstairs and that was provided, Service was very good, Kind regards Paul
One of our favourite restaurants anyway but thought that this was one of the best meals we’ve ever had there! Everything was just divine!
Food was amazing and staff we’re also very helpful and friendly. Will definitely come back when I’m back in York
A party of four came last night for my birthday, having been to both restaurants before was really looking forward to it. We arrived on time and taken straight away to our table. There was only two other parties in at the time but it took 30 minutes for someone to ask if we wanted a drink. 30 minutes later the drinks arrived and we asked if we could order straight away as we were on a time limit and had already been there 30 minutes. It took a further 15 minutes before someone came for our order. The waiter apologised, took our order and we asked for ice to go with the wine but it never arrived. Our order was wrong when it came, we asked for two different potato dishes but got two the same, we asked for toasted bread and got normal bread. We told the waitress, she apologized and said she would change. When the toasted bread eventually arrived it was too late as we had already eaten. The fish kebab smelt extremely 'fishy' not pleasant at all, so we left it. We couldn't have desert even though we were there for over two hours as we were running late. The bill arrived and this was wrong also. Our friends wanted to complain but as it was my birthday I didn't want to fuss. I now think we should have as I thought what a waste of 110 pounds. It's the first time I have never left a tip. Other people came in after us and there was lots of staff came on but at the time we went there wasn't enough on. It was such a shame that our evening was ruined.
Excellent tapas. Aubergine fritters outstanding.
As per usual, and I have been saying this for years now, the standards at Ambiente are superb. Wonderful menu, beautifully cooked dishes, fabulous range of quality drinks and attentive and knowledgeable staff. What more do you want?
A good evening with friends
We are getting more adventurous and ordered a dish of fried aubergine that turned out to have a tempura-like batter and to be very tasty, also some kind of regional Spanish sausage with an excellent sauce on a bed of finely mashed potato puree.
Have been a few times, this is my favourite out of the two restaurants in York.
Have eaten here twice and both times excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will certainly recommend it and will eat there again next time in York.
Lovely meal, excellent service with thoughtful touches, we’ll definitely visit again.
An excellent evening with fantastic food and service. The food is absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back again.
Great food as always. Thoroughly enjoyable evening brilliant setting and staff would recommend to anyone.
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here with my Mum last Monday (a belated Mother’s Day treat). The tapas selection we chose was delicious, the service attentive and so polite and Mum is looking forward to recommending it to her friends (praise indeed!) Thanks for a lovely experience.
I took a group of people who had not been to this restaurant before, everyone was stunned by the quality and variety of tapas. Gorgeous food, courteous service absolutely perfect. Thank you.
