The place was very nice, but the food did not relate with the price. Went for a special meal and left quite disappointed. Dont get me wrong, food was nice but perhaps it was too expensive.

Ambassador is one of the rare gourmet restaurants in the area. Amazing is that prices are at the same level as in those where most of the tourists rush with lower service level. New Year's Eve Gala Dinner was even better experience. Perfect menu with well chosen wines and on top of that a bottle of Taittinger Champagne. More info... More

I'm fortunate that I get to travel quite a bit and to eat at some great restaurants. But this isn't one of them despite the fact that it obviously sees itself as one of the top dogs in the area. There's a pretentious and superior air about this place that is not justified by the overall experience. The food is... More

We have been in this restaurant for several times and never fakes. This is a great restaurant. The service is very nice and the food is amazing. They had changed the menu from the last time we were there and continues to surprise. Great from start until the end. We missed just the degustation menu they got on the old... More

While staying at the Costa Meloneras Hotel I tried their flagship restaurant, the Ambassador. This is a very good restaurant, probably the best in the Meloneras area. This is not a place for jeans and runners so don't expect chips and burgers. The meal and the chosen wine were excellent. There is a comprehensive menu and wine list and while... More

We have stayed 8 times at this hotel, and the Ambassador has always been an ambient restaurant with good food and wine at very reasonable prices. (Top wines are cheaper here than in the neighbouring wine store, ex. Valbuenea No. 5, Vega Sicilia Unico). However, this year we were disappointed. First visit on arrival day was ok foodwise, but no... More

For 20 euro's each on top of our half board cost we had our anniversary meal in Ambassadors. Formal environment with food of a "fine dining" quality. Food and service were both very good and well worth the money. A special mention however must go to the young lady waitress who's name I can't recall. After consuming our champagne my... More

We booked this restaurant as we were residents in the hotel and the restaurant generally gets a good rating. We may have been unlucky. Food was average for a restaurant of this type. It took one hour fifty minutes from sitting down for the main course to arrive. A middle aged lady at a nearby table complained very loudly about... More

The Ambassador restaurant, part of Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort & Spa, is an excellent choice to dine & wine on property. During our one week stay we dined once at the restaurant. It gives a VERY nice change to the half board. Supplement €19,99 a person for a wonderful evening with friends. Interesting à la carte menu with great choice... More
