Great food but cold service

We had dinner Ambrosia and our verdict was that while the food tasted wonderful, the service was professional but cold. You don't feel that they appreciate your patronage very much. That minus one star from them. We had quail, which was so tender that it was like melting in your mouth. The risotto... read more

We really enjoyed our supper at Ambrosia. Well prepared food, stylishly presented. Service attentive. All the guests were smiling and happy - and the waitress looked after us very well. This was a second visit - so they are consistent too. We have been disappointed eating out in Malta in recent years, but Ambrosia was faultless. We recommend the boneless... More

We dined here on 1 July Was charged 18 euro for a goats cheese soufflé that was dry and more like a muffin than a light soufflé. It came with some rocket. Not great vfm at all Left feeling ripped off However the lamb shanks was very tasty

This is a cool, atmospheric little place that is known for deserts (which I didn't have the room for, dammit.) But the rabbit dish - wow! They make their gravy with juniper berries and dates, and an extra spice that I want to say is cumin, but regardless, I wanted to bottle the sauce and lug it home with me.... More

We had another excellent meal in this lovely restaurant during our recent stay in Valletta. We shared the asparagus starter and then I had the roasted salmon and my husband the vitello milanese. The dishes were excellent washed down with some local wine. I had read a previous comment about the cheesecake being fantastic and we gave it a try... More

Gorgeous food but leave a bit of room for the best baked cheesecake ever! Top quality and attentive service, and the cherry on the cake that makes Valletta a place we'll return to again.

We had a wonderful meal at Ambrosia and I'd definitely recommend it. The restaurant is on a street with several restaurants in a row. This was our first evening and we were all satisfied.

We found this restaurant in our guide. The menu was poor. The food was not tasty . I ordered the duck but the meat was very hard . We paid 78,25 € plus tip for 2 persons with starter , main dish, dessert , one glass of wine and one bottle of water.

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!
