One of the worst dining experiences ever. I took friends to dinner to Ambar, and we were unpleasantly surprised to find that food portions equals the child menu - the waiter told us that at least three menus equals one “normal” menu. We ordered three...menus per person, and everybody stayed hungry, shocked, and not happy with the food.More

Never a miss. Although there are similar restaurants along the same boardwalk, be sure to choose Ambar. The standard of the food is extremely high, and the decoration of the plates is artistic, so all the senses are satisfied. The whole staff is amazingly friendly,...and we were lucky enough to bump into our favourite waiter Ivica. This guy is really something, a wondeefully mannered young man. You can trust his recommendations and enjoy a good few hours!More

I was on a business lunch and we ordered so called Ambar train (different meals coming on be after another). The service is extremly slow and the quantities are like for the babies. After 2 hours I needed to leave and had to have another...lunch. By the way, the food is of a very average quality. Won't be coming back for sure.More

We ordered sausages and crispy calamari - both were not more than just edible! Crispy calamari were dry with virtually hardy visible traces of tartar sauce underneath. Cream cake was even worse! Instead of a well-known cake with that name, with raspberries (mentioned in the...menu!), I was served three super-hard sugar-glazed miniature pieces of pastry with less than a spoonful of custard cream and a whiz of cheap raspberry syrup. Terrible! This restaurant used to serve good food, but now should be avoided at all cost! It si a good place for drinks during the day.More

Great small dishes, very tasty and they don’t stop coming when you take the all you can eat menu. We asked Johanna our waitress who was great, to stop bringing them out probably after the 20th dish. All of them nicely decorated and served in...different dishes. The price for 2 meals, 4 beers and a large bottle of water was under 50€.More

This is a restaurant by the river with helpful staff and fabulous food. Considering it's a "tourist" place alongside other river restaurants the prices are not expensive at all.
