Quirky and charming

We really chanced upon this restaurant one lunchtime. It's very central, tiny, family run and has a really warm, quirky feel about it (for example, previous guests have written comments on the walls). The menu is limited, but local.

We really chanced upon this restaurant one lunchtime. It's very central, tiny, family run and has a really warm, quirky feel about it (for example, previous guests have written comments on the walls). The menu is limited, but local. The food was excellent, with the rabbit casserole being particularly good. Very good value.

So far just twice we've managed to visit this place but now we are sure that will be going more often. At first sight, looking at the interior you are confident that they will take care of you well as the place is very cosy and almost every table has some privacy. The food is very tasty, minestra homemade style!... More

Never fails to delight. Food invariably delicious, fresh and varied. Excellent friendly service and great choice of wines. I return again and again. Well done Chris and family.

A warm atmosphere in a family restaurant. We particularly enjoyed the pasta and the pork belly with an excellent sauce. Deserves to be much higher up the rankings.

Ambrosia is a welcoming and cozy restaurant in a central location. You won't get a menu, rather you'll see the dishes written up on a chalk board - and there's plenty to choose from. Our meals were excellently prepared, plentiful and delicious. The wine list was extensive with reasonable prices. We were here for dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere, the... More

Food was cooked to perfection, we had the goats cheese souffle and asparagus salad to start, both lovely, light and fresh. For mains the veal milanese was melt in your mouth delicious and the veal cutlet was extremely tender and came very well presented with tasty vegetables on the side. Highly recommended, great staff and lovely family who run the... More

Hard to tell from the street but it's nice inside. I wasn't too hungry and just had the prawn risotto, my wife had rabbit. It was very good, service was good too

I hadn't visited Ambrosia in years - and to be honest, my experience there had been a good one. The atmosphere and decor have changed considerably since. It's darker and gloomier although quite cosy. I had forgotten that they had no menus, just daily specials listed on a board. It was very difficult finding something which wasn't too heavy to... More

If you are looking for a good lunch, Ambrosia can be a choice that will not disappoint you. Had to opportunity to experience their good food but would like to see a better selection for vegetarians.
