About Ambiente Tapas Leeds

We offer an extensive range of tasty, innovative Spanish & Mediterranean themed dishes served in a stylish & contemporary setting - with a hint of rustic charm thrown in.

Our menu presents a wide selection of tapas which sees old favourites like Patatas Bravas and Calamares alongside some more unusual dishes that explore our interest in fusion, Albondigas (meatballs) served in a creamy lemongrass & chilli sauce, or our Morcilla (blackpudding) scotch eggs being two such examples. Whatever your likes or dislikes and regardless of how adventurous you are, we are confident that we can guarantee a really memorable dining experience at Ambiente. In addition to this we offer a daily Lunch & Brunch menu which features our own interpretations of classic breakfasts from around the world, alongside some more familiar old favourites.


Our range of mostly Spanish wines is extensive and includes organic & vegan options. Our selection criteria for these wines is always based on quality, so you can be confident that whatever your taste one of our wines will fit the bill.

As for our espresso-based coffee, we use a combination of freshly roasted & blended Arabica beans from York's own Coffee Emporium with a classic Italian La Spaziale espresso machine to produce coffees with an outstanding depth of flavour. All our teas and hot chocolates are fairly traded too. But don't take our word for it - come & find out for yourself!


We are committed to offering a comprehensive choice to vegetarians & vegans as well as meat eaters, and we can also cater for anyone with specific dietary requirements (gluten free, dairy free etc) - just mention as you book or when you come in and we will be pleased to go through our menu with you.

Amazing first visit. Warm outside and just a shame the air con couldn’t have been better. But staff were great even after I stupidly forgot to apply the code for half off. Well done to the team

First time. Food was really nice with the pigs cheek being a stand out! Service of dishes was brilliant and timing was perfect despite having a full restaurant. Hats off to the team there!

The service was great and ordering on line was made easy. However, the food was only ok and the portion size was disappointing for the price and yes, I know it’s Tapas!

Every dish we had at ambiente was absolutely delish! We visited as part of the eat out to help out scheme and can honestly say even when the scheme is over we will be returning as the food, service and atmosphere was superb. We had a couple of questions about ordering via the new app but every member of staff we spoke to was so lovely and helpful! Can’t wait to come back

I have only scored 4 stars for food and drink and atmosphere due to the restrictions placed on the restaurant during the current pandemic. The restaurant has to follow social distancing which reduces the atmosphere. A reduced menu is also in operation which is understandable.

Food and drink was lovely . However, ordering was not straight forward. We had gift vouchers and using them was particularly difficult. We needed different online codes each time we ordered a drink or food. In the end there was still around £10 leftover and we were told that Ambiente would contact us to arrange sending us the surplus. Unfortunately that’s not happened. The staff were helpful in the main, especially helping with a gluten free order, but the fact that they have not been in touch to arrange the remaining value of the gift vouchers is disappointing.

On line ordering a bit awkward to adjust to but now I've done it won't be a problem to do again. First city centre evening out since lockdown but felt safe - covid management arrangements the restaurant have in place is reassuring. Food and service all very good - as usual.

Service was good, food very average for what we were charged. Also found a hair in the chorizo sausage and was only offered another round of tapas (after we’d finished our meal) staff were very apologetic but left it at that. Forced to pay service charge before receiving any service, obviously wouldn’t of paid it after the hair situation. Can’t blame the waiting staff they were all very polite/ apologetic/ friendly. I blame management & the chef. Won’t be returning here unfortunately.

We had a lovely lunch. The food was really nice and the service was friendly and efficient. It was my daughters 12th birthday treat and she loved it. My only slight downside was the banana bread doughnuts which were quite stodgy and not as tasty as I had hoped but that might just be personal taste. We will definitely come back to your lovely restaurant. Really enjoyed it. Thank you

First time out since March and was delighted with our visit. Took advantage of the eat out scheme but even without it the experience was great. Lamb stew was amazing but so was everything else. Happy with everything.
