Ambulo - Millennium Gallery
Need to book at 7:01 AM?
I would not recommend for the Bottomless Brunch which I had, I would recommend for lunch/drinks
Excellent service food & a lovely dining experience.The breakfast was amazing.
We would definitely recommend.
The Shepley family
This venue is noisy but attractively laid out. The staff very keen to be helpful. I had the Nordic salad which was as fresh and attractive as possible. All in all a good experience.
Ambulo is a nice, informal dining option. The Nordic bowl was nice but small portion. Coffee very good. Disappointed with recent change in opening times as we liked to visit after work - this is only an option now on one evening per week.
Delicious food, not very generous portions, shame no table service but ordering at bar ok but had to pay as we went not when we finished
Food was good. Quality ingredients. Surroundings dull, service ok. Had to look for someone to ask if we could be seatedand how to order !
Always feels like style over substance. Built for social media rather than customers.
Great food, very good service we all loved it. We ate at 6 on a Wednesday evening and staff couldn’t have been more attentive and gave advice on wine to accompany the food and explained the menu in lots of detail.
Fantastic food, the crumpets with guacamole were great, as was the hake with brown shrimp, but the standout was baked leeks with goat cheese. All the food was well beyond expectation. The ambience is light and airy, music pleasantly quiet, cheerful service. I have recommended this to all my friends.
Loved the decor and all the attention to detail. The staff were welcoming and topped up our water when needed without us asking. The food was good. We went for an early tea with the kids. They enjoyed their food especially the mac & cheese. I wonder whether the menu is better suited to lunch rather than tea. Will definitely go back for lunch.
Efficient and chilled vibe at the same time. Beautifully decorated. Appropriate for both families and work lunches, overall a perfect place to visit on a trip to Sheffield no matter the occasion! Food is spot on too.
Great atmosphere and great food and drink. Staff were first class too.
We had a very lovely breakfast, booked a table in case the nice weather brought the crowds, but it was actually so nice and quiet. The stuff and the food were outstanding, and it was the best place for a goodbye before catching a train at the station!
I only descoved the gallery cafe had changed hands recently (I used to avoid it) I have eaten lunch there
3 times in the last 2 weeks, at last we have a worthy gallery cafe I just love it, and so do the friends I take along with me. A fab dining experience, the menu, the environment and the wonderful staff can’t be faltered. Thank you all at Ambulo.
The food was very good and the waitress was very knowledgeable when asked for explanations on the ingredients. Will definitely go again
We had a great evening and the service was fantastic.
Love Ambulo! Fantastic food, staff and it’s our four year old’s favourite place to eat!
Second visit in 2 weeks and improving already. Very tasty food, quick service and a great new choice for pre theatre dining in Sheffield
Excellent service, lovely food but think that some dishes are over priced for the amount you have to eat. I don’t have a large appetite but was still hungry after eating the new leek & feta dish. Consider serving with bread as needed to mop up cheesey remains. Please bring back the jelly & icecream. I’m diabetic on insulin & it’s ok as not too many carbohydrates compared to other desserts.
Perfect pre-theatre meal. The smaller plates meant we could try a bit a bit of everything we fancied. The staff were helpful and attentive - highly recommend!
Third time I have been to Ambulo recently. Ambulo is a lovely, airy, welcoming space underneath the Millenium Gallery. Staff are really lovely, friendly and helpful. Food is great: the falfal patty is huge and packed with loads of goodness. The sticky toffee pudding is wonderful, the sponge very light and the toffee sauce to die for. All topped off with a scoop of creamy, tasty vanilla ice-cream. I love the fruity Carpe Diem smoothy. Definitely my go to place in Sheffield city centre for a leisurely lunch.
We had a really lovely meal at Ambulo on Sunday. The food was excellent as was the service.
The only problem was that it was so cold in the restaurant, if this could be addressed it would be a straight 5 🌟 review.
A strange place: it isn’t quite sure what it is or what it wants to be. Is it creative high-end dining? Or is it a canteen? The result is that it falls somewhere in between and doesn’t quite work. The space is lovely, but the furniture poor. It is too uncomfortable and cheap looking for the price of the food. The food is good, but confused by the new ‘sharing plates’, which are more in keeping with a high end restaurant.
The service is disjointed, the staff are nervous. We were walked to our table silently, the menus placed down without comment. There were more staff cleaning tables than serving, our drinks orders were taken after 15 minutes with our food order... It’s odd. Highly instagramable, but the real life experience needs to catch-up with the Instagram one.
Great food and location. Choice covers all tastes and age groups. Perfect part of a visit to the art gallery and wider Sheffield attractions
First time not the last!
Ambulo is an excellent addition to Sheffield. The food was amazing, service excellent and atmosphere perfect for a Friday evening. We had 3 sharing plates and saved room for the sticky toffee pudding and custard tart
The menu is eclectic and all of the food I had was REALLY tasty. The venue itself is just a bit bare and lacking in atmosphere. It's all a bit white and not very cosy.
And the waitress was highly efficient but utterly robotic and lacking in charisma.
Absolutely delicious food, great service for a work lunch. Really recommend for something way above the norm in terms of menu and atmosphere. It was a bit chilly inside on the day of my visit, but otherwise flawless.
We went at 7.30pm and were sat next to the windows. We probably should have moved as we were all cold but thought we’d warm up and it was a hassle to move as there were 8 of us!
The adult portion wasn’t enough for a 12 year old who had spaghetti but had to order potatoes too as he was still hungry. We did ask what the portion sizes were like but were told it was a decent portion so we only ordered mains. Can I add at this point that we aren’t greedy people!
We did tell the staff as we were paying so as advice really. On the plus side, the lager on tap was lovely!
Food as delicious, service extremely good. Eaten there 3 times. All good but quite pricey.
We visited Ambulo on Saturday night. It was an absolutely fantastic experience - everything lived up to what we expected (and more). Everything, from the service to the food itself, was faultless. Will definitely be coming back - thanks!!
This is a very nicely designed, light space, noisy but not too bad near the windows at lunchtime. Fresh colour scheme and lots of space. Service was friendly, professional and helpful. The food was excellent. We shared a main course of hake with XO beurre noisette and brown shrimp which was extremely good and the sticky toffee pudding reclaimed it’s place. It was probably the best sticky toffee pudding I have ever eaten, light sponge, caramel sauce just on the right side of burnt and a delicious ice cream. High chairs available. I would definitely go back.
Really enjoyed my lunch at Ambulo, so glad we chose it. Service was absolutely excellent, food different and excellent and ambience relaxed and friendly with people of all ages. Makes the most of the location as well, good window seats. Great lunchtime venue, will try evening soon!
Fantastic! Great food choice, not just the standard menu you’re offered at 9 out of 10 other places you visit in the city centre. At the same time a kid friendly menu that went down a treat. Staff were also brilliant with my three year old son.
Fabulous aubergine dish just spoiled a little by the flatbread being impossible to cut. The dish was actually on top of the flatbread rather than at the side. Preferable to have the bread separate so it could be eaten with fingers!
Great pricing especially on the wine.
Shame the custard tarts weren't individual like pastel de natal or pasticcioti
We will return for lunch and keep it on our list of regular haunts!
Had the Korean Fried Chicken Crumpet. Batter was anaemic and chicken was greasy underneath. Also a little bit pink. Can't fault the atmosphere, but some softer lighting in the evening would be appreciated.
I had the cauliflower salad and a cappuccino. Absolutely amazing flavours and excellent quality of coffee. I had to wait to be served whilst 3 of the waitresses/waiter were talking whilst I was holding my baby. They apologised. Looking forward to trying other dishes.
The staff and service was good but the food provided was not worth the money; lack of flavour, poor quantity and not presented very well. The rabbit was bland and most of it was just bone.
Nice. Slightly underwhelmed as expected a bit more. Neither a cafe or a restaurant really. Attractive setting. Could do softening acoustics. Feel like menu could do with a few more options... I had the Korean chicken crumpet. Chicken was delicious. Crumpet a bit dry & heavy & smothered in way too much chilli sauce. Not that hot but totally dominated. A little pickled garnish or something make it - felt like something missing. Ordered custard tart for the rhubarb ice cream. Didn’t taste of rhubarb at all. Tart was very creamy & yummy.
Delicious food, perfect coffee and lovely wait staff, my third venture into Ambulo in just one day and each visit was excellent.
The fish finger sandwich was tasty but the string fries weren’t what we expected. So that meant the meal didnt seem as good value. Staff were friendly. The cafe is family friendly but I would have really struggled to breast feed on those seats /couches so we left and went home instead. Decor was really nice.
