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.
It was a pleasure experience dining in Ambiente Tapas.
Fantastic service, amazing food and most importantly, great staff! My husband and I called to see if there was space for us at lunch time as we were on our way home and pass Ambiente, fortunately there was space on the front. This is one of our favourite restaurants, always so welcoming and accommodating.
Amazing meal, really enjoyed. Great food, great drinks and lovely atmosphere!
Great food cooked to perfection and brilliant service and value for money
Excellent food and service the best I’ve had in a long time. Both FOH and BOH on the night were a credit to the business.
Gorgeous food as ever. Staff were lovely.
Great food as always!
Would prefer a few more options on the menu
Really nice experience. Lovely waiting staff and fast relaxed service, delicious food, and a lovely location. Some dishes on the menu a tad pricey (the bread for instance!) but you certainly get what you pay for
Amazing food and great atmosphere
Fantastic meal. Great good , great service and a lovely setting - what more could you want!
The team were super friendly and lots of fun, went out of their way to provide great service, cannot compliment them enough
Since the reopening of the terrace this is my second time at Ambiente, as I love the food and drinks, but most of all, everyone is lovely and friendly. Excellent service but most of all, everyone very attentive to social distance and wearing masks properly. Is nice to feel safe in time like these ones and to be able to enjoy amazing tapas and sangria!! I will come back soon!
Table advertised looking over river. Ran out of various drinks. Requested specific order for food waiter forgot, forgot drinks too he apologised 8 times as a minimum. Service was appalling he didn’t give a dam about us, not young or trendy enough. He was surprised he got the service charge and that was only because the person paying was too nice to not pay it It was a birthday party not made special. Value for money would have scored higher but waiter got it wrong. Food was amazing, lovely
Phenomenal service and delicious food. The focaccia and sherry flights made the entire evening. Mark was very accommodating and was a fountain of information regarding anything on the menu. The tables were filled but food came quickly and nice and hot. Will definitely be coming back again.
Great food, very friendly service. 4th time here and will be back again :)
Service was bad. I asked for a second glass of wine adn been told that it was impossible because the kitchen closes at 10pm. It was 9:38....
Patatas bravas was truly exceptional, far better than other tapas places. Sad there was no Moroccan lamb - but it was the last day before lockdown, so I was actually pleasantly surprised that you did have lots of choice still!
Brilliant food and service! Cant wait to visit after lockdown 2!
Not my first time coming here. As always Amazing amazing food. No faults with food, service or atmosphere. Is a little pricey as the bill adds up when you order several dishes but a great treat from time to time.
Brilliant service and the food was delicious, will definitely be coming back!
Fantastic food and service,this was not our first visit and wont be the last
A lovely birthday treat and a bit of normality in these strange times. Very safe and lovely environment with attentive staff thankyou
