Ambiente have two tapas restaurants in the centre of York. The original one is located close to the Minster on Goodramgate, with our newer restaurant on Fossgate - York's main destination street for discerning diners.

Our Goodramgate site is perfect for those looking for a relaxed meal for two or smaller groups of friends. It has an intimate restaurant area as well as an Andalucian 'tabancos' style bar overlooking the street. Enjoy a quick bite to eat, a glass of wine or spend a leisurely evening sampling our gourmet tapas.

Our Fossgate site is larger and has a contemporary, stripped back industrial feel with a theatre style kitchen on the ground floor to create a unique dining experience. With a generous restaurant space for 120 diners, we are certain we can cater to all your needs.

Both restaurants provide a wide selection of tapas including old favourites like Patatas Bravas and Calamares alongside some new dishes that explore our interest in fusion. In addition to our main menu we also offer a daytime Rapido menu featuring 3 tapas for £10.95, available between 12pm and 5pm Monday to Friday, and an extensive sherry and wine list.
