Great service food was great. Kids enjoyed it too. Only thing I say the tomato topping on the bread was bit salty but otherwise very good. Definitely will be coming back

Visited on a cold wet afternoon, the guys did a great job at trying to keep us dry, they would benefit from bigger brollies. Had a great meal, food was fantastic and the waiters were so happy to be back at work. Can't wait to go back possibly indoors.

The weather was cold and rainy. Due to covid restriction the dining experience was outside. However the staff are friendly and service was excellent. Food was very good especially the paella which warmed us right up. Would love to revisit again but preferably with indoor dining post covid.

Very positive and flexible in both booking in and providing the meal . Very personable and informative service and excellent , well prepared food . The menu was pleasingly wide given the COVID outside dining restrictions. Many thanks for a great luck for our family.

Nice atmosphere & good service but the food was pretty average & lots of the dishes were extremely oily, overall I was disappointed with the quality especially considering the prices.

Great food and portion sizes for tapas. Lovely staff :) only wish there had been heaters/blankets and definitely cushions on the metal chairs which were quite cold to sit on!

A great first meal out after the latest lockdown. The menu is slightly more limited than usual but the quality was first class.

Service from Louise was amazing, she was so lovely and positive despite it raining half way through our visit! I would consider investing in some kind of awning if you are looking into dining out front of the restaurant as its unfair to expect staff to work outside without proper facilities. There was only 2 umbrellas too so it was lucky there were only ourselves and another table. Despite that our food was lovely and again service from Louise and the other staff member was great!

Wonderful efficient friendly staff who all were smiley, chatty and a credit to your restaurant. Found you by chance while meeting up with son and little granddaughter aged 3 and baby in a pram. They were so helpful. Amazing food loved by all. Little granddaughter aged three recommends you and loved her first taste of tapas. We willl be back.

Unfortunately we weren’t able to attend our booking due to York going in to tier 3 lockdown on NYE. One of the kind employees at Ambiente was able to call and tell us the unfortunate news as well as welcome us back in the future which was a nice gesture. Looking forward to returning once lockdown is lifted :)
