This restaurant is an alternative option for the hotel guests who would like a change to the half board buffets during their vacations. Unfortunately you cannot escape the impression it is just a way for the hotel to cash in on their guests with a special offer of an extra 20 EUR for a three course meal served a la... More

What a stunning hotel, from the reception area to one of the many pools, it is hard to fault. Apart from being one of the biggest hotels in Gran Canaria it boasts charm and class. The food and drink, whilst not the cheapest, is competitively priced. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Only problem is the race for sun... More

We had dinner at Ambassador in the end of our holiday. The restaurant was stylish and the service was very good in the beginning. I am a light eater and seldom eat my plates empty, but this was the first time a waiter finds that so annoying that shows his annoyance to me. I decided to overlook his sour impressions... More

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
