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.
We had a lovely time, I wish the atmosphere would have been more Spanish and the music more varied (it was the same music over and over). Food was delicious, staff could have been more on the ball but were very friendly and attentive. Great place!
The food was fresh and well cooked and there were some things we hadn't had before. Great choices for vegetarians and pescatareans which was good. Will definitely come again.
Excellent menu & choice
Our first visit but won’t be our last! Throughly enjoyed it
We had to ask for the bill 3/4 times and it took over half an hour for us to be given it even though the restaurant was basically empty
Lovely meal at Ambiente at the weekend. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. The view on the small balcony over the river is also lovely! As always with tapas it can get rather expensive but we both thought it was definitely worth what we paid
Wonderful lunch with my daughters
Amazing food at a great price with great service - couldn't ask for more.
It was a really lovely meal and the service was absolutely first class. The only thing which was disappointing was the paella rice pudding dessert. It just wasn’t right somehow? It was neither hot or cold - sort of tepid. The addition of coconut made it very dry, even with the fruit compote (which was very good) Just poor quality in comparison to all the other dishes. Would still come back, overall very good.
Fantastic service, amazing food, brilliant atmosphere. I will definitely be visiting again
Thank you for another lovely evening! Still one of our favourite places.
I've never visited before and have to say it's the nicest tapas I've ever had 😀
Lovely meal as usual, my only comment being that the mushroom dish was so salty that we wondered if it had accidentally been salted twice. Everything else was beautiful, including the wine.
Service great but menu lacking in traditional Spanish favourites. There were no churros on the desert menu which was disappointing.
Not the first time I’ve been here. I’ve also been to York establishment. Great food and drink. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. A very relaxed and enjoyable evening. A slight communication issue by the waitress meant the bill was not paid how it was requested, a simple mistake. Look forward to returning.
Really excellent meal and drinks thanks you. The dates with blue cheese and bacon are truly exceptional.....a taste sensation and the white sangria was divine!
Sorry for the negative comments, but we thought the food experience was very poor, very small portions even for a Tapas and actually very tasteless, so much so we left our meal due to the lack of taste The restaurant itself is very nice with lovely views over the river Total lack of value for the money paid Regards
Delicious, creative food, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Loved it
My daughter has just started working for your company, everything was perfect, thank you, came with my eldest son and my mother for her birthday, food, staff, surroundings, all contributed to a lovely lunch. We will return asap. Kindest regards. Sharon Hitchcock.
Great food and staff were friendly and helpful
Excellent service and food.
The food is stunning, atmosphere is great. The dishes we ordered came out at random times rather than coming out together and a long wait between finishing our meal and being asked if we wanted dessert. Overall though, I will definitely be going back and would recommend to others
Delicious food, new menu since last time we visited and was a great variety but everything we had was really really good. Lovely ambience & lighting (very important to not have really bright lights in your face!) booths and décor always lovely. Service friendly and efficient. One of our favourite places in Leeds.
Good food great service
Absolutely gorgeous tapas, lovely place & friendly staff...also great value, loved it!
