About Ambiente Tapas Fossgate
An independent Mediterranean Tapas Restaurant & Sherry Bar
Welcome to the website for Ambiente Tapas Restaurant & Sherry Bar. We are a small independent restaurant company offering contemporary gourmet tapas in the centres of York & Leeds.
To complement the food offering we stock a range of over 50 sherries & wines by the glass to be enjoyed either with your restaurant meal or with a lighter bite in our bar areas.
You were very helpful about the table booking and advance ordering. I loved our round table. Food was excellent and service hit just the right balance.
Probebly the best tapas me and my wife have had. We loved everything we ordered. When we return to York we will most definetly be returning to Ambiente, Fossgate. Kindest Regards Ryan O'Donnell
The food was top-notch, no complaints - all our favourites were spot on. The pitcher of White Sangria however was frankly underwhelming and disappointing. There was only a few lonely ice cubes a couple wedges of lime - we had to ask for additional ice because it just didn't cut it. For the record, White Sangria typically also contains mango and orange slices, in addition to lemon and limes. We felt it literally did not match the stated price. It took a while for our check to be delivered and payment taken, however I understand a party of 25 meant things were busy - just important not to neglect your other customers.
Great friendly helpful staff.
Great eve, atmosphere and fab food
Wonderful food and service. Highly recommend.
Great food, great service, we'll definitely be back :-)
Food was amazing and the service was excellent. Highly recommended.
Excellent and friendly service
Really delicious food and sangria, at good prices. My boyfriend and I shared 6 dishes between us and we were completely full after! All the staff were really friendly and it was no trouble at all that I have an allergy and so some dishes needed adjusting. Will be visiting again
Excellent meal and very efficient helpful staff
We had not been able to come for a while because one of us is recovering from knee surgery. We booked for a quiet time and requested a downstairs table - same floor as loo for use by people with disabilities. It was actually our 25 wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed our lunch. Ambiente always produced a good range of dishes for vegetarians and non-veggies. We had some of our favourites to share. We also allowed ourselves some puddings as it was a special lunch - they were good. The new knee is still recovering so we will continue to need to come at quiet times for a while but it was lovely to be back.
First visit and the food was stunning, definitely going back
We'll be back
A great meal, thanks
fantastic meal and service, we will be back
The food was amazing! Would defiantly recommend!
Had a window seat which we really liked. The waitress was particularly good. Had a most pleasant evening.
The quality of the food was excellent. The service was friendly but it took 25 mins to get our drinks, which is quite a long wait. The atmosphere downstairs is much better than upstairs- which was where we were sat. A nice meal.
We waited 45 minutes for our food to be cleared and to be able to ask for the bill, despite us trying to get their attention. The best food ever, and I love it there. I just didn’t enjoy waiting and waiting.
Always a warm welcome. Great place to eat in York
Love it ...£20 for a Vegetarian platter (to die for)to share with one tapas and two lagers ...perfect tea time meal .Great staff courteous friendly ..Highly recommended 🤨
The food we ordered was, in the main bland, greasy, overcooked and tasteless. Squid, Prawns, Chicken is what we ordered. We visited on Saturday 29th June. The air conditioning was apparently dripping water and could not be switched on so we were very uncomfortable. I accept this isn't necessarily within your control, however this does not account for the poor quality food.
