Dinner

Lovely cosy restaurant, beautiful food, friendly service from Chef/owner. House red wine delicious. Perfect final night dinner, found quite by chance.

I booked a table for 12 people after my civil wedding. The food was great as always and the service was impeccable. I've been going to Ambrosia for years and the food has never declined in quality. It's truly my favorite restaurant in Valletta. The dishes are simple, well prepared and cooked to perfection. Well done!

Food was superb with excellent service and good wine. Reasonably priced for such good quality. Very attentive staff who explained the daily menu in an accurate and detailed manner. Beautiful interior decor - although we took the opportunity to dine outside due to the lovely weather.

Nothing can detract from a 5 star to this treasure of a place...the service is inconspicuous yet efficient, the place is cosy and comfortable, and the food is simply sublime.

Saw Ambrosia recommended in a guide book as well as trip advisor. We weren't disappointed. Very generous portions, both of us had the rabbit stew which was absolutely delicious - not a dish we often find in England. So impressed with starter and main courses we had to have desert too. Staff, especially the waitress were very friendly. Perfect start... More

Didn't go with any expectations. When we got to the restaurant, the delivery man who came with the Gozo asparagus was just leaving. If it was to be any fresher, we would have to pick it ourselves. Food was well prepared with extra marks for anything that had to do with vegetables which were prepared as well as I have... More

the travel guide recommended Ambrosia. The whole experience was special. We were early but were met by 2 of the very friendly chefs. The waitress was exceptionally pleasant and helpful - everything was done with a delightful smile. We had slow cooked rabbit and walnut stuffed quail cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The sauces were brilliant. The restaurant is... More

First night in Malta, and I feel like I've been treated to something amazing. Had this place recommended to me by the owner of our hotel. It was quiet when we got there but we did wander in a little late (for us, anyway). As a matter of fact, Valletta seemed pretty quiet as a whole. Aaaaaanyway, I ordered the... More

Wanted to try this place but the opening times were inconsistent with the actual open times so we didn't get chance to try it. Very disappointed.
