This is a Guatemalan modern restaurant, nicely decorated with beautiful furnishings and tables neatly placed. The food is a Guatemalan – International fusion, with flavors from several continents. Variety of dishes to choose from. Seafood, steak, pastas, salads, risotto, desserts, etc. There is a very nice outdoor area with tables, surrounded by trees and a beautiful garden. There is also...

We ordered different things and all of them were excellent. We stayed after, dance, sang and had a great time. We sat at the lounge area and it was somewhat uncomfortable to eat, I recommend getting a table so that you could enjoy eating and then move to lounge area. Overall it was excellent and a fun night.

Embassy friends we were visiting chose Ambia for dinner on our last night in the city, and we had a superb meal. It was very quiet because it was just a couple days after new year's and a week night (in fact, one of the only other parties there was another ambassador and his family), but the service was excellent...

The seating area is outdoor and outdoor-indoor so the restaurant atmosphere is excellent. The carpaccio was excellent. My duck was beautifully presented but the salsa was a bit overwhelming. Service was solid, which is good as the prices are on the high side.

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
