At the first night my husband and I had a delicious pasta with shrimps and my son ate a huge steak with rustic fries. On our second visit we had a... read more

After a long day on the road we dropped into Ambigú. Relaxed atmosphere, great food, nice service, and a view of the beach.

We called without a reservation just after 7.00pm and managed to get a good table.This was a Saturday night and the restaurant quickly filled up with large family parties.We had prawn curries with potatoes and the portions of prawns was truly generous.Whilst the curry was extremely mild we did enjoy our visit.

I've been to Ambigu a couple times and the food and service is good. I've had the pizza and pasta, both very good. Atmosphere is casual but not too casual and you can bring kids.

We were a group of 6 - 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children (1 & 3 years). Everywhere else seemed to open at 8pm but Ambigu opened at 7:30pm which was necessary for the children. Extensive menu, wonderful meals, nice surroundings and reasonably priced. And if you show them one of those yellow maps that most hotels and hostels... More

Checked the lonely planet for a nice restaurant in Puerto Madryn. Picked Ambigu, from outside it looked inviting, but once entered, the waiter didn't show much of interest. Service was very quick and very commercial. We didn't finish our starter, while the main course was already on the table. Ingredients didn't taste very fresh, we suspect they were deep frozen....
