SquareMeal Review of
Ambiente Tapas Fossgate
Competent and comfortable, the staff at this small, independent group of tapas restaurants know their stuff and are happy to pass on their enthusiasm to their customers. Chill out with a glass of fino sherry or a sangria (with a nibble of fine Serrano jamón), before tucking into classily served favourites, from deep-fried seafood bites and seared tiger prawns in confit garlic to traditional Spanish potato tortillas and caramelised chorizo. Those who want something a little more substantial can settle for paella (there are several different versions), with churros and chocolate or Spanish cheeses with quince jelly to finish. So popular have these haunts become that booking is essential, especially at busy times, and groups are encouraged to stick to set menus.
