Mediterranean Tapas Restaurant and Sherry Bar
Inspired by the Mediterranean way of eating, Zoe and Tim wanted to create a vibrant and friendly tapas restaurant where people can enjoy small plates of delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. Here, and at the sister restaurant on Goodramgate, they are famous for their wide range of sherry, wine and vermouth.
Food is cooked fast and fresh, and at the point of order with typical dishes including meatballs in chilli and lemongrass sauce, fried goat’s cheese with honey, fennel and beetroot and caramelised chorizo with potato. Not many people know that the kitchen team at Ambiente Tapas bake the bread in-house, their Padron peppers are grown and pickled in nearby Wiggington and their meat and poultry is also sourced from York’s ‘Butchers Block’.
“We serve Spanish food with a Yorkshire twist.”
