Ambiente Tapas

Serving gourmet tapas in one of our four vibrant, yet relaxed restaurants is what Ambiente is all about. We’ve put our Ambiente stamp on things as our tapas is not like you know it! It’s inspired by tapas served in traditional Spanish ‘tabancos’ and influenced by tastes and flavours from around the world.

I love eating tapas with friends as you can all order stuff and share

Cosy Club

The Cosy Club gets my vote too, they have menus for all dietary requirements, cocktails are really nice, price is great, staff are great and its a really lovely venue in town

LT, June 2018

I love Cosy Club. Spent loads of time here with mum friends in the first 6-7 months as the soft seating area is so feeding friendly and there’s a decent baby change. Pretty spacious too so suitable for groups of 5 or 6 with prams. As the babies are getting bigger it’s a lovely place to eat as a family, the staff are so helpful with the little ones. The food is good too and it feels more “grown up” if you want to feel like an adult for an hour! There’s colouring stuff provided for older kids too

Filmore & Union

Relax and take in the calming atmosphere in our stylish York restaurant. Housed in one of York’s oldest buildings, our ground floor health cafe and juice bar and elegant first floor restaurant offers Californian-style, healthy, naturally-wholesome dishes and gluten free cakes. We’re dog friendly too – so bring them along on your next visit! 100% Gluten free afternoon tea available.

Filmore and Union is my top choice, they were really lovely when I was breastfeeding and are very accommodating, baby changing a little snug but it is a very small building.

Giraffe – Vangarde

A world of spices and colours, sizzles and smells. Of secret recipes and even more secret ingredients, passed across tables in noisy restaurants and down through generations. Flavours we can’t even describe. In combinations you wouldn’t believe.

SF, July 2018

Pizza express!!! My daughter and her friends loved this when she turn 7!! They made their own pizzas to eat, including throwing the dough as high as they could, tried and tested ingredients and toppings & played party games. I dont think it was extortionate either to be honest!! Xx

Located within the city walls, opposite the Grand Opera House and only a stone’s throw from many local attractions including the Jorvik centre. Having benefited from recent refurbishment, Prezzo York boasts cool contemporary decor and the stunning fireplace adds to the welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant’s amazing central location makes it the perfect place to dine with family and friends with private dining rooms available upstairs for larger parties.

I always found Prezzo great when Poppy was little (and now too!)
I took her there on my own one time and she was creating so much I couldn’t eat my lunch so one of the waiters came over and played with her so I could eat, safe to say they got a hefty tip from me that day xx

EP, Sept 2018

My little ones love prezzo and it’s kids eat for £1 during the holidays they get 3 courses and a drink
