DINE AT HOME - Or if you fancy doing a bit of the cooking, then enjoy our Dine at Home option. Available for collection every Friday from Ambiente Tapas Fossgate or for delivery within York Ring Road, it's perfect for a family of four or for a couple over a few days and includes one of our fabulous paellas to share, five tapas dishes from a selection of ten tapas and a bottle of wine, all for only £50!

The orders will be packaged up in foil containers and the paella will come as a 'kit' form with all the ingredients and instructions ready for you to cook fresh at home. They’re made to be enjoyed over the weekend, but are also freezable for later enjoyment.

TO ORDER YOUR DINE AT HOME, VISIT AMBIENTE-TAPAS.CO.UK/DINEATHOME

Ambiente boasts two completely unique tapas restaurants within the city walls, each with an extensive sherry and wine list. Goodramgate, near the Minster and Monk Bar, is the oldest and fittingly housed in a listed Georgian building, while our younger site on Fossgate sits perfectly at home on York's destination street for discerning diners. We have been delighting regulars & newcomers alike with the city’s favourite tapas since 2014.

With a contemporary, stripped-back industrial feel, you’ll find a spacious, stylish and energetic restaurant in our Fossgate site with an open-theatre kitchen on the ground floor (just take a glimpse at the passion we put into our food ~ no microwaves here!). 

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 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.

Whether you’re coming in for a relaxing lunch or with a group of friends on a Friday night, expect a vibrant and welcoming dining experience.
