Driven by instant instinct we picked Ambrosia for lunch when visiting Valletta, and it was a good choice, indeed. A small Italian restaurant located very centrally it offers seating inside and outside, too. There is a selected menu available for lunch (a wider choice for dinner, as we were informed), but it gave us enough freedom to select. Highly attentive... More

We were recommended to visit here for a special meal. We sat outside, we had the Rabbit, it was good. The food here is quite pricey even when compared to the five star hotel we were staying in just up the road. So for that you want good service. Nobody asked if we were enjoying the meal, nobody came to... More

Chose this restaurant from a guide book and was not disappointed. The food was varied, well priced and delicious. We sat outside enjoying the ambiance of Valleta. There was an excellent choice of meat and pasta dishes, also the dessert was superb so make sure you leave space for this! The service was also very friendly and talked us through... More

Chose this restaurant at random and felt very lucky. Sat at an outside table for lunch in an attractive alley on a hot day but with good shade. A relatively short menu on a chalk board but we were all extremely happy with our main courses and particularly the excellent desserts. As well as tasting great the food was very... More

Possibly had one of the best meal in a while at Ambrosia. Ended-up after looking for a place to eat. The menu is on a black board outside. The choice is relatively limited compared to other restaurants (maybe 6 starters and 6 mains) but quality over quantity! I ordered the tortellini with porcini mushrooms as a starter, then braised rabbit... More

Pleasant indoor/outdoor cafe. We were lucky and just wandered up as a table outside became vacant, but would recommend booking. We shared a serve of calamari, had a couple braised rabbits, couple glasses Maltese white wine and bottle water. Cost us Euro 59. Well worth it.

The risotto starter was perfect and while the calamari wasn't all that filling, it was great as well.

When you're new to a city it can be difficult to find a restaurant that ticks all the boxes for that perfect evening; great location/beautiful view, relaxed ambience, well-paced & friendly service, great value, confidence in cleanliness & food hygiene & most of all, delicious food & drink selection. Every restaurant has its good & bad days, difficult & pleasant... More
