If you ever want to make a reservation at Ambrosia take my advice and just have your hotel book it for you. They don't take reservations by email or if you call them directly. So save yourself the hassle and have the hotel call and reserve. Also note that Ambrosia doesn't have a sunset view. I had read a lot... More

If you are well-prepared for a rude manager, play a game of guess-what table, sitting on top of other partrons, sip a bowl of 1:5 diluted lobster bisque and try a well-cooked, well-presented white truffle prawn risotto with illusory white truffle, please read on...... We pre-booked a table for three about 7 weeks before and asked for the 7:30 sitting.... More

My husband and I decided to visit Santorini for our first wedding anniversary. We thought it would be nice if we did some research and book a table at a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We discovered Ambrosia and noticed the magnificent reviews it got from customers. I decided to send a couple of e-mails enquiring about the restaurant, however... More

My husband and I happened upon this restaurant without reading any reviews. Interestingly, we had been admiring this restaurant as we dined at another place the previous evening. Our impression had been it must be only for newlyweds. It appeared everyone was getting personal attention, the couples were dressed beautifully, and the setting was amazing. But of course, we just... More

Came here in the hope that it would be what we expected despite some negative reviews. A pure romantic setting, attentive staff and my wife described the food as the best she has ever tasted, 1st class restaurant in my opinion serving 1st class dishes. Tremendous.

This isn't your ordinary Santorini restaurant. Recommended by both a friend and Gourmet Traveller the food was a notch above the others in the area. The menu was good and the waitstaff knew their stuff, acting like it was a five-star establishment. Highly recommend.

Extremely tiny restaurant with tables nearly on top of each other but worth a visit. The meal was delightful, and very large. The local rose wine we tried from Santorini was very good and suited the setting perfectly, especially on a warm July evening. Go early =, before the sunset, to not only get a table before the tiny space... More
