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

Charming little sidewalk restaurant, bookings recommended. The menu changes depending on what is in season. I had the quail and my partner had pigs cheeks. Both dinners were nice, but not as outstanding as we had hoped for, having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. The service was friendly, and overall it was a pleasant experience.

Part deli, part shop but certainly doesn't play at being a quirky yet very pleasant restaurant. Turned up after have a couple of drinks next door at "Oliver Reeds" The Pub. Sat outside at a table with my partner and two children,and very lovely it was (not even sure if they had indoor seating?). The menu is small, but supplemented... More

Small, but good. Nice ambience and service and good food. Not cheap, but value for money. I like the menu on the blackboard, and the informal atmosphere.

Had a very pleasant lunch in this small rustic restaurant (approx. 30 covers) just a couple of minutes from Palace Square in the centre of Valletta. Reception was genuinely pleasant and friendly, and service was attentive but not intrusive throughout. There was no printed menu, as it changes daily, according to what is fresh and available in the market. Everything... More

Ambrosia is one of our favourite restaurants in Malta's. Yes, it has a limited menu like all the better restaurants around the world and the chef does everything on that limited menu very well. We tried and loved everything on the menu as we eat there on a regular basis when we visit Malta. And like all good things in... More

The number of tables is quite small, so it is best to reserve. The menu is not displayed outside, which might be off-putting for some, but it is quite wide ranging and changes on a regular basis according to availability. Great portions and excellent quality served by pleasant and friendly staff. Interesting décor and great atmosphere. Perhaps, a little more... More

The food here was wonderful! the service was good, didn't have to wait long for our meals either. It is more expensive, but I don't mind paying more if the meals are great and these were!
