    Ate at Ambitions last Thursday evening. As always the food was excellent and more than plentiful. All the trainees were very attentive and anxious to please. As always the evening was more than just about eating. There is an added excitement to the evening in the anticipation of the different ways the food is to be presented. Congratulations to all those involved for their enthusiasm and attention.

    On 26.04.18, a group, eleven i think of ladies had a meal in the restaurant. The service and food was excellent. We were rather a naughty group as we moved round from our seats so we could talk to each other. The staff were wonderful and took it in their stride staying both friendly and professional. On behalf of the ladies i say thank you for a lovely evening. Mary

    Lunchtime - 3 courses, coffee and soft drinks for 2 people - £27. Excellent value. Decent portions. Nice atmosphere, table staff attentive and polite. Citrus salad was delicious, burger absolutely spot on although could have done with a bit more sauce. Black Forest Gateau much lighter than usual, which was perfect after a big meal. Stuffed chicken was beautifully cooked and the ratatouille very tasty. Overall very impressed - thank you very much!

    Expected great things as I’ve been to other college restaurants but was not impressed. The restaurant is very nice but there was no silver service. No choice of bread rolls, it was white or nothing, although they were ok. The starters were good and the main course, apart from the roast potatoes with the pork, they had either been kept warm for a very long time or were reheated. The desserts were laid out on a table, in the restaurant, we had to choose our own. None of the staff knew what the desserts were. I, unfortunately, chose my favourite, creme brûlée, big mistake. It wasn’t cold, obviously, and was runny in the middle but worst of all no crunchy topping......... disaster. Shan’t return in a hurry

    For a training establishment Ambitions Restaurant is exceptional. Given it’s situated in Great Yarmouth the focus is sharp and on target for the restaurant trade which is central to the town’s main industry. Weave been eating there for over six years now and have never been let down. This time we took friends there for dinner and even though it was the start of a new academic year the standard of food and service was superb. These are young people starting their final year so you’d expect a degree of inexperience but the level of professionalism in the kitchen and in the “front of house” should make these young people and their supervisors proud. The food is of a truly high standard and it’s so good to see young people striving to be good at “customer service” it is so refreshing. I would recommend Ambitions to anyone visiting the Great Yarmouth area during the academic year.

    My other half had already treated me to a big weekend for my birthday before the actual day so I was somewhat surprised that on the actual day she also took me out to lunch. We had not previously eaten at Ambitions so I didn't know what to expect. The front of house staff were clearly nervous and unsure of themselves, hardly surprising given that they were all students. Nevertheless they did come over as polite and friendly. They were being helped out from time to time by tutors as it was still early in the year. The food was all well presented and nicely cooked. Canapés to start were dainty and tasty. The starters were generous and delicious. The soup before the main was enjoyable. The desserts provided a delightful finish to our meal. We ended our visit with a coffee and found that nearly two hours had gone by without us noticing. The standards are very high and any of the kitchen team could have been working in an ordinary restaurant already. I expect some of these students to go on to much higher levels.

    I was a guest this evening at a dinner to celebrate the launch of the newly formed East Coast College. I have to say that both food and the service were excellent! It was a pleasure to meet some of the Level 3 students at the end of the evening and to have the opportunity to congratulate them on the quality of every dish that made up what was a splendid meal. The students are a real credit to the catering department at the college - well done to all concerned!

    Had wanted to visit here for years. Opportunity came and I was more than pleased with everything. From the welcome received on arriving, courteous and attentive service from all the staff. Very professional manner. Meal was outstanding, imaginative and beautifully presented. Value was amazing. Can't wait to visit again.

    Had the most delicious meal here today. Thank you to everyone you all did so well. I enjoyed each of my courses immensely. Food was lovely and hot and presentation was beautiful. The carrots were the best I have ever tasted too. Not used to eating such good food at lunchtime...i had to go home for a nap! �

    Visited for lunch for the first time today. The food ranged from very good to superb, the latter worthy of high end restaurants. The students were attentive and keen to provide a good service. The restaurant prices are very reasonable compared to most restaurants, and don't be put off by it's training role. These are the chefs, fronts of house, etc of the future and are under the expert tutelage of the staff, who ensure high standards are maintained.

    Very good waiters, polite and although a bit nervous confidence will keep coming. Food portions were very large, perhaps a bit less would be better to prevent food waste? Or automatically people should take it home? Food was great, service quick. Only two learning points- courgettes need to be thinner in the fritters as they were a little raw. The desserts maybe should be served with a coulis or a few berries for decoration as you would get in a 'Standard'restaurant. Bright catering careers ahead for the students :)

    I Visited the Ambitions restaurant as part of an event that the college had arranged (50 or so guests). I can honestly say I was hugely impressed. From first impressions the restaurant looked clean and very inviting inside with good decor. They hold a 5* food hygiene certificate too. The staff are very polite and tentative without being in your face or harassing, they had just the right balance. We had a 3 course meal for lunch. The portion sizes were incredibly generous. The 3 courses were served quickly (especially given the number of people), tables were cleared promptly and food was served hot. Each course was very enjoyable and well presented. I had beef for my main which was so tender and cooked to perfection. I can quite honestly say the students provided a better service and much higher standard of food than some of the expensive restaurants I've been to recently. I would highly recommend eating at Ambitions and supporting the students. I am looking forward to returning for an evening meal (which I believe can be booked on Thursday evenings) as I do think this is a real gem of a find. My only criticism is that I felt the toilets really let the rest of the building down. They don't seem to reflect the high standard in the rest of the building.

    Visited as part of a group having a special 6 course meal with each course representing a different country. Not much space for a large group assembling for pre dinner drinks (everyone crowded around the bar). Trainee chefs, waiters and waitresses were pleasant and very enthusiastic about their work.Most of the dishes were introduced and described by the chefs responsible for creating them. I particularly enjoyed the bean soup from Cuba. The food was well cooked and beautifully presented. The complete meal was very filling and I found it difficult to fully appreciate the various mini desserts presented for the last course. An enjoyable evening nonetheless.

    Avery warm welcome. We were attending a function which filled the Restuarant. Obtaining pre dinner drinks was difficult to order from the bar due to the numbers and system employed for payment. Each course was described fully by the chef before it was served. Service was very professional, friendly and efficient. All the 6 courses we were served were very tasty, nicely presented and hot ( our menu was included international - a very good selection of quality dishes , all complimentary to each other). Ask students in this training restuarant were conscientious, "on the ball" and very professional. Our meal was very, very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

    Our first time at the restaurant for a Rotary event in March - we have now added this to our list of great places to eat. From the welcome at the door through to the final course, every aspect of the evening was a pleasure and great fun. The food and service were of a very high standard at an exceptionally reasonable cost. If you have not experienced a meal at this training restaurant attached to Great Yarmouth College, you must book - the young students and staff will not disappoint.

    A group of 24 ladies went to Ambitions for an evening meal . Really lovely starter, and the main course was lamb absolutely tasty, rather slow bringing the vegetables, but in all a great dish of food. We would have like the desert of our choice, but they ran out of the lemon tart. But it was a very nice meal, we all enjoyed going.
