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.
Absolutely horrific experience. Alarm bells should've rung when we saw the staff eating crisps behind the bar... We ordered our food only to be told that 3 dishes were unavailable, would've been nice to be told when given the menus. Both make and female toilets were dirty, broken seat in the ladies, overflowing waste in the male. The restaurant looked grubby and there was litter on the floor. The food was awful. Prawns served with vein still in, Polenta chips dripping in oil, as were the prawns in batter. The fish platter was horrendous, gone off foul smelling fish flakes... We sent it back and it was deducted from the bill. I wish we'd walked out at this point. Table water wasn't brought until midway through our meal, the Estrella was flat and had a stale odour. The only decent tapa was the chorizo & potato, but we all felt queasy after the fish... The place felt like a rudderless ship to be honest, even the kitchen looked a mess. I eat out a lot and this was up there with the worst meals I've had in years. We won't be going back. The York restaurant in Fossgate was amazing in comparison....
The restaurant was lovely , nice atmosphere . Food really good but small portions compared with other Tapas places we’ve been before . The servers forgot our drinks but still put them on the bill. Overall a nice experience .
Apart from the restaurant being inexplicably quiet, the food and drink could not be faulted, and the service was superb. We will be seeing you again soon!
My second visit to this restaurant. Friendly staff and food is out of this world.
We were a large family group of 14 dining on the set menu with one vegetarian among us who was extremely well catered for by the staff and kitchen without any hassle whatsoever. Thank you.
Tapas was really nice selection and good value for money. Very filling and fresh. Only disappointing thing for us was the service. Appreciate that it was a busy Saturday evening but it had a negative impact on our overall experience. Although it sounds picky the food was almost too fast, after ordering it was at our table in around 5 minutes.. 10 minutes before the drinks we ordered arrived. When the food runner put the first lot down we had no plates or cutlery on the table even though this was a booking. He didn’t stay at the table long enough for either of us to ask for them or did he pay attention to the fact we didn’t have any. Overall, the experience was nice but we would wish for better service if visiting again.
Lovely tapas in comfortable surroundings.
Lovely lunch on my birthday!
I visited you yesterday Saturday the 9th of November for a birthday meal and wow it was gorgeous and we’ll definitely be back
Disappointed not to have a paella. Was never told or informed it would have to be pre booked Otherwise a very good meal
One of my favourite restaurants in Leeds. Delicious tapas, my fave is the chorizo & potato - should make the sauce into a drink! Also lovely wine & sherry. Good service and reasonably priced
The quality of the dishes were poor in comparison to the York branches. Disappointing consider my partner and I love ambiente!!
Perfect evening, every member of staff went above and beyond. The food was plentiful and every bit was delicious. Everyone had a great time. Would definitely recommend.
Had a lovely night, great service and amazing food!!! Will be back again soon.

Excellent! We have been before and love this place. best Tapas in Leeds,
We had a lovely time here as always. The food was delicious as always, we tried more plant based choices this time and the green beans were probably our favourite part of the menu! Our waitress (Laurell I think?!) was awesome, friendly & attentive she really made our night so much better. Massive thanks to her and to everyone for a lovely night.
