First time back since lockdown: Ambiente had done a fantastic job at making the restaurant safe in the time of covid-19 I felt completely comfortable throughout. The service was fantastic and staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Overall had a great evening.

We always chose Ambiente for dining when in York. The food is delicious and the staff are warm and welcoming.

There should be an option available on the app to give a tip as cash tips aren’t accepted

We are regulars at Ambiente in Hull; love the food, the ambience and, in particular, the staff. The arrangements made under Covid19 in your Fossgate restaurant meant that we felt safe; the staff were very helpful and the food was, as ever, delicious. We will return!

Had a lovely time visiting this lovely city and this only added to the experience. Great atmosphere and friendly staff and prompt ordering via the app. Would prefer more connection with waiter/waitress but totally understand with Covid it has to be done this way. Would definately come again

We visited Ambiente as part of the EOHO offer and ordered a range of dishes to try and appease two adults and two small children. All were delicious – beautifully cooked, flavourful and a good portion size. Highlights included the Spanish meat platter (a generous spread of melt-in-the-mouth charcuterie), the Chistorra (a big hit with the kids) and the Merluza Frita. The hygiene system was very good, service was smooth and the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. If I lived closer, I'd eat here every week!

Great service, all dishes were lovely. Really organised with the extra work they have had to introduce due to the pandemic. Would 100% recommend going!

We were sat under an air con unit which was dripping, so I kept getting dripped on whilst on the restaurant and it even dropped on the food. We asked if we could move but the waiter went to check but didn’t come back! Also the service charge getting put on the bill at the end with no option to remove it is cheeky. Other than that lovely food and nice wine

I know in the current climate things have changed. But to have to down lowed your app, then order your own meal and pay for it before it even arrived is shocking. We ordered starters first that came half way though our meal and the dishes came so slowly and one at a time we found the whole experience very disappointing and will not be returning or recommending!!

We had booked this for my brother in laws 30th birthday. There was 6 adults and 3 children. Due to the pandemic we had to be sat on two separate tables which was fine. When we were shown to our table there was a large table that could have easily sat up to 20 plus people on including social distancing which we were just told bluntly no. Our parents were sitting on a table of 5 with the children and we were sitting on the table behind them. We were told that there was no menus and everything had to be ordered online which proved difficult to our parents who aren’t particularly very good with technology so we stood up and tried to explain how to order when the lady told us we had to sit down at our table. The lady offered to help them despite looking like she was completely run off her feet. Clearly struggling on how to use this app we again tried to assist them and the lady came running over and told us we needed to sit down as this was the law and we explained why we were standing up and the lady was very abrupt and rude which caused an argument in the restaurant. Could not make a comment on the food but the staff service was absolutely disgusting.

I came with 3 friends, and we had excellent service and delicious food. The staff were friendly, helpful and patient, and the meal was tasty. So thank you to everyone at Ambiente for giving us such a pleasant time.

Shame about the current climate resulting in a reduced menu but the food on there was good. I will say the albondigas was not as good as I have had previously here but everything else was spot on.

Poor quality food, Spanish x English style. I was expecting authentic dishes well cooked. I’m pleased we had the EatcOut to Help Out promotion otherwise it would have felt very expensive for what we were served. All round, a hugely disappointing experience.
