Romantic, great view, and good service. The restaurant is located on the main walkway so it is an easy find and travel by foot if you are staying in one of the nearby hotels. We were not disappointed at all! Try the octopus with fava puree appetizer.

Truly fine dining, with first class service, incredible views from a small terrace, and food to die for. Try to book the table in the southeast corner of the terrace for an unobstructed view.

Nice and romantic view but food disappointing. The fish was undercooked and the waiter was grumpy. Did not even bother to complain. Expensive and not worth it.

I had booked this restaurant prior to our holiday, on the recommendation of a website called Santorini Dave. We weren't left disappointed. I asked our receptionist to confirm the booking and have champagne placed on the table for our arrival, as it was our first anniversary together. When we arrived we were placed at the front table with the best... More

Right in the middle of Oia, very small, tiny tables very close to each other on 2 tiny terraces. Food ok, wine very good, service excellent. Fabulous view included and reasonable priced.

We spent two weeks in Greece for our honeymoon, and Ambrosia was hands down the best dining experience we had. The food was fantastic - we had grilled octopus, risotto, and another fish dish and we are still raving about it. The atmosphere was also memorable - perched on the Caldera with beautiful views. There are not many tables which... More

We were recommended this restaurant as it was suppose to have spectacular views of the sunset... IT DID NOT! We were not able to see the sunset really, the restaurant essentially is on the opposite side of where the sun should be. When recommended this restaurant we tried to get a reservation, we were unable to originally. We were under... More

So to start with the location, they are just off of the main square in oia and you walk around to the back where you find the restaurant with a bottom terrace, top terrace and indoor seating. I would recommend make a reservation on the top terrace which has a great view over the caldera. The restaurant is very romantic... More

I was wary of this restaurant because of the mixed reviews but decided to give it a shot anyways expecting overpriced food but an amazing view. Booked in 6:30PM reservation to catch the sunset. Not a bad dining experience, but extremely overrated. When we arrived, we realized that almost EVERY restaurant in Oia has great views and Ambrosia, while it... More

We recently spent 4 days in Oia and had chance to look around many of the restaurants and bars in the village. After a very enjoyable first night at the Ambrosia my wife was keen to go back and sample more of their menu. On both nights we had a very pleasant meal without it being anything amazing. The food...
