Lovely food, very helpful service - gave us a good idea of how much to order but wasn't too pushy. Would certainly come back.

Great tapas. I always forget I'm not in Spain, and want to speak Spanish.

Our party was a group of seven, we chose 3 dishes each from the main menu, however on reflection we do not think we received all our dishes, i.e. a salad ordered was definitely not provided. We were obviously distracted by chatting and catching up with each other and we realise should have mentioned this at the time of payment. It worked out at an expensive meal per head, with hindsight we wish we had been given the option of the 'set menu' which is offered to larger groups. This would have worked out considerably cheaper.

We chose ambeinte for a hen party of ten. Everything was managed beautifully and professionally vie email as we were visiting york. All the staff were helpful and polite and even had time for some conversation around serving courses, which were exceptional, we had a set menu and aside from some vegan issues the rest of the party were spoiled for choice..there was simply too much food even for ten hungry hens. All beautifully presented and well laid out but it could have had a bit more atmosphere for our group just because it was a hen party. They let us decorate the seating area and were so helpful in providing selotape for banners and an outlet for an emergency phone charge. We will definately return for the rest of their menu! Thank you for having us and thankyou so much to the staff for their service and organisation prior to our visit and during our time there. Muchas gracias for a bonnita noche mi amigos/as

We had a brilliant meal for 14 people on a hen party. Our waiter (sorry I don’t know his name) was fantastic and the extra allowances made for member of our party who were vegetarian and gluten free were really above and beyond. The food and rose sangria was unreal. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks!
