All the food is awesome, if you like fusion cuisine and good cocktails, this is the place! The restaurant is one of the best in the city. Modern and lots of people between 25-50 years old. Parking can be difficult from Thursday to Saturday but they have ballet parking available.

The food was very good as was the service but what stood out the most to me was the ambiance. It has a nice indoor dining area, indoor/outdoor covered dining area, and then these cool couch type seating areas under the trees and rope lighting hung from branches with tall hearing units between them. It was beautiful at night. Great... More

I went for dinner with a friend from out of town as I wanted him to try the best food Guatemala has to offer. I am a fan of Ambia and for every single business lunch I go there. I ordered the Aguacate Textura which offers avocados prepared in three different ways. Amazing go ahead and order it. I also... More

Ambia is one of the nicest places in Guatemala City, and one of the priciest, too. Most of the seating area is covered, but integrated to the forest behind it. Sophisticated preparings, innovative combinations, excellent service, they all come together for a nice dining experience... but be prepared to pay for it! If planing to go on Thursday thru Saturday,... More

I went there on a weeknight with a couple of friends and we had a really great time. The staff is extremely nice and will do what ever possible to make you enjoy your visit. The prices are okay, the food quality just above the scale but the portions rather medium sized, as it is a fancy place.

The place is very nice, and the food taste very good. It is a very pricy restaurant. I think the fish that my husband and I ate made us sick...Well someone told us it was not a good idea to have fish in a non-coastal city...

I visit the lounge at least 4-5 times a month if not more as I favor a couple of their drinks, the ambiance and the service. The food however has not been consistently served and the standard for me varies from average to good. Only after speaking to the chef and asking for certain combination of high end ingredients which... More
