We had a very enjoyable time, the food and service were excellent. Only negative comment is your app. Points from a previous visit had not been added, so I asked your assistant if she could amend. She said it had been done but is still not showing on the app. Will try again next week when we visit your Goodramgate restaurant for the paella offer. This would be our fourth visit to Ambiente in 6 weeks, so obviously you are doing things that appeal

Muy bueno! Ambiente was recommended by some friends, and we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed all our dishes. We asked for Pimientos de Padron, and were told these were not in season, so not available. Another good point that you only use seasonal produce. Staff were all very pleasant, and it was an enjoyable evening.

This was the first time we had been to Ambiente during an anniversary weekend with our young children so wanted to go out for a special lunch. The food was amazing, particularly the croquettes and macaroni cheese and the service was quick and friendly. Highly recommended.

Too long before dishes came out. My husbands meat dish came out on its own 10 minutes before anything else (I’m vegetarian) and my main veggie dish came out about 30 minutes later quite a long time after our initial dish. To say we were only a table of two I was rather disappointed.

We pre-booked and as I’m also tune fed (visible to all as tubes are a facial view) and we were not sat away from people (which happens often) and we were made feel so welcome. When it came to ordering the young man didn’t directly look at me when asked I’d we had any food allergies which again is normally addressed to me! The food was fantastic especially the pork with poor man potatoes and skirt of beef. We over ordered (of course) but my only problem was the description of lightly fried prawns and squid, I loved the previous prawns which were in garlic and not deep fried and unfortunately I was unable to eat them. Apart from that we had a fab lunch.

We had a very lovely meal - so fresh and tasty. Really wish I'd tried a dessert sherry. Maybe next time.

Another fantastic evening. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were well looked after by the diligent and helpfully friendly staff. Drinks quality and variety was good. The food was as good as ever, served and presented well. A real find was the dates stuffed with blue cheese and wrapped in ham - magnificent. Can't wait to visit again. We had a wonderful window table which was great.

Lovely food but it's the second time in a row we've visited and had our order messed up. This time we were given 2 of one plate and my chorizo dish was missed out entirely. We didn't want 2 of one plate and I didn't see the point in waiting for one lone dish when my friends had all finished eating. Also couldn't hear a word any of the servers said! Lovely food though.

Being the 1st Saturday in the New Year it was fairly quiet hence the 3 stars for atmosphere. It’s not a cheap place to eat but the food was excellent. Will definitely return

Really good, we've been before and the food was still as good. Service excellent. However, I emailed to ask for some cava for my boyfriends birthday when we arrived, they said they would preorder it for us. No one mentioned it, nor his birthday. Bit of a shame really.
