Ambiente Goodramgate

About

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 the younger site on Fossgate sits perfectly at home on York's destination street for discerning diners.

For cosy, intimate dinners for two or family outings, Goodramgate's your gal. The relaxed, Andalucian-inspired tabancos-style bar allows for a spontaneous lunch or glass of wine overlooking the street, and the more formal restaurant area is the perfect spot to spend a leisurely evening sampling back-to-roots Spanish fare. 

If you're looking for a more contemporary, stripped-back industrial feel, head to the spacious Fossgate. There you'll find an open-theatre kitchen on the ground floor, stylish modern urban decor and a streamlined menu of the city's favourite fashionable tapas dishes - think Patatas Bravas and Calamares. This venue suits large parties and those who want to strut their stuff on a Friday night.

The full menu is served 11am-10pm Monday-Sunday, and additional lunch offers are available Monday-Friday:

Fossgate's Tapas Rapido menu features 3 tapas for £11.95 from 12-5pm
