We arrived a lot earlier than our booking and it wasn’t a problem to squeeze us in. The food was fantastic, we will definitely be returning!

Would have preferred to not be sat next to the manager doing the staff rota whilst we were eating dinner. Surely there’s somewhere more suitable than front of house?

Lovely food and have been on numerous occasions however the food that was brought out to us on this visit was only just warm, I can imagine it had been left waiting for too long before being brought to us, disappointing as we had always rated this as our favourite restaurant in the past

Very enjoyable meal for my birthday, the food and service was spot on. The belly pork and the sausage meat and quails egg tapas were particularly good.

The service and food was very good. Two of my friends had never had tapas before and they thought it was very good and the lamb was very tasty.

Unfortunately I brought friends here who were visiting from London. Although some of the food was excellent other dishes were not so good at all. When we arrived one of the chefs must have burnt something and the whole restaurant filled with an air of smoke. The craft beer was awful and we had to get them changed. The service was good and all the girls that waited were lovely and attentive. Unfortunately the food was just not as good as I’d expected.

We had a wonderful time at Ambiente ... we had a few people in our group with specific dietary requirements and we were very impressed with how the team catered to their needs and provided individual portions excluding dairy / meat. Great experience - thank you for making us feel special for my friend's hen party :)

We had a very mixed group with children and adults and found plenty of choice and all cooked deliciously. Our waitress (the one studying mental health at uni was excellent - thank you for a great evening.
