Ambiente Tapas

Inspired by Spain's laid-back dining style, we are a vibrant, energetic and welcoming tapas restaurant.

Everyday 11.00 - 22.00

Inspired by Spain's laid-back dining style, we are a vibrant, energetic and welcoming tapas restaurant. Situated in the ‘home of independents’ on Fossgate, we serve tapas-style dishes influenced by seasonality, Spanish cuisine and our chefs’ creativity.

Our food is cooked fresh and at the point of order – you won’t find microwaves in our kitchen! And our menu features all of the city’s favourite mouthwatering tapas dishes - think Morcilla (a Black Pudding Scotch Egg), caramelised chorizo and potato, patatas bravas (vgo), calamares and croquettas. We also cater to the full list of dietary requirements and have an abundance of vegetarian and vegan options available!

We’re ethically minded and source locally where possible – our chicken and eggs are free range, our seasonal Padron Peppers are grown locally in Wiggington and our meat and poultry is sourced from Yorks’ ‘Butcher’s Block’.

If you’re after a drink or two with your meal, then you’ve come to the right place. We have over 60 wines by the glass, specialise in sherry (and have sherry flights if you’d like to try out a few different styles) and have several beers on tap as well as cocktails, cava and soft drinks.

“We proudly stock a large range of sherries by the glass, from dry finos all the way to sweet Nectars, and are confident we can find one that you'll like (we view it as a challenge!). Just ask your server for a recommendation.”
