Yesterday I had a lunch at ambrosia near the Fix metro station. The service was fast and polite. It is mainly a greek restaurant with local and regular customers. My preferred dish is the Kleftiko (spicy roster beef) and Kokoretsi. I visit it frequently with friends or alone.

Eat here last week and the food was wonderful Returned a week later ordered the same food and i had to send it back it was nothing like what I had received the week before. I found the staff did not want to know and with a shrug of their shoulders at me I moved on elsewhere to eat

The sort of place that used to be so common in Greece where for little money people could go out, enjoy themselves and eat like at home without having to do the dishes afterwards! Simple, honest and a taste of Greece, enjoy and smile!

Type of no-fuss place. I read other reviews and almost didn't go here... This is the type of place where you probably need to stand up for yourself a bit to make your order etc. known. We sat outside by choice, and it started raining, but the lovely older waiter man came out at perfect times to take our order,... More

Good value and lots of classic Greek dishes. Large portions - don't over order. Not a lot of ambiance - don't go here for a romantic dinner - but great for a group of friends especially if you want to make a lot of noise!

We really really love the food here. I thought it was authentic and value for money. No touts which is the other bonus point! Quick, no nonsense service. We liked this so much we came back twice.

We found this little taverna very close to our hotel. The food was very tasty and we got big portions at low prices. We especially recommend the lamb chops. It is for sure not a fancy restaurant but if you want to eat some realy nice food at low price, go for it!
