Great food with a Maltese feel eg: stuffed quail and braised rabbit. Only a few tables so book ahead. Very good service and a cosy atmosphere.

What a lovely, quirky, charming restaurant this is, very small so a reservation will probably be needed in high season. We loved our dinner which was served by a very friendly and efficient lady (the proprietor?) The menu was unusual, food was beautifully presented and of excellent quality. The wine list was reasonably priced. We certainly recommend trying it.

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

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
