Dining here twice during our stay in Valetta, the first time we had rabbit, which we really liked, the second time we ordered veal, which was less enjoyable. Nevertheless I would recommend this Lonely Planet recommended restaurant - but you do need to book in advance. Many of the best restaurants in Valetta are small & it is therefore difficult... More

The menu is on a blackboard, can be a little hard to see/read. Cheese souffle starter, large enough to share was nice. My wife had two large fillets of sea bass, a generous portion which she enjoyed, initially I ordered the braised rabbitt which wasn`t to my taste and they kindly changed it for the pigs cheeks which were very...

Informal little restaurant serving quite superior local dishes. Friendly, helpful service. Good local wines. It was our first dinner in Valetta and we enjoyed the feel of the place from the moment we walked in.

everything's just great here. Reasonably priced, worth every cent. Book to avoid disappointment. Unusual but great interior decor. Super service, very friendly and attentive. I've tried the pigs cheeks and they are the best. Period. Veal was incredible And the steaks are great. Love this place enough to be a regular

Passing by at lunch time we decided to give it a try. Air conditioning was attractive. What a pleasant surprise. There were only a couple of tables taken, but by the time we ordered every table was full. We shared the pasta and it was delicious and just the right amount of food. Friendly service, interesting decor and ambiance.

We sat outside and enjoyed a really good meal of stuffed quail a da cheese soufflé. The wine was Astarte Vermentino and delicious on a warm night. The service was attentive and informative. A most enjoyable experience

Visited this restaurant at lunch time midweek. Sat in a corner with my family on a small table - in this very quaint restaurant nestled in a side street of Valetta. On arrival the restaurant was quiet, and in not time at all filled up with 'local' business people who appear to have made the eatery their "local". The food... More

Ambrosia is one of those "off the beaten path" places that has eclectic mirrors hanging off the ceiling and graffiti messages written on the walls. A family business with the brother cooking and the sister running the front of the house with two young entertaining staff, Chloe and James. The menu is small but superbly executed particularly the sea bass... More

Brilliant, brilliant food. Earthy, deep, full of flavour. Wish we had eaten there more than once! Lovely service.

Happened upon the place by accident and maybe we caught them on a bad night but service was indifferent and food nothing special. Certainly would not go again
