“The best and most poular restaurant/taverna in Skala Kallonis”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Ambrosia Taverna is neaely always full which speaks volumes for the food. We dined here 3 times times and on each occasion our meal was great. The cost was very reasonable and the service was relaxed and pleasant. The taverna is set on the Village square in the centre of this small resort so you "People" watch as you are eating.

“Best Taverna in Skala Kallonis”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

In our view the Ambrosia Taverna is the all round best taverna in Skala Kallonis. It is in a nice located on the village square where you can "People Watch". The food is very authentic Greek cooking and everything we ate during our 4 meals was delicious. Prices were very reasonable and the service was good conducted at the right pace.We did not feel rushed whilst eating here. It does get very busy so sometimes you may have to wait for a table..This is was you call a Typical Greek taverna that you see on holiday programmes. it is not at all commercialised and dining here is like going back in time.

“Set on the Village Square; Good Value”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Ambrosia Taverna is set on the lovely Village square in Skala Kallonis on the Greek Island of Lesbos. It has a nice atmosphere and the service is friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful, freshly cooked and nicely presented. A good choice of both meat and fishes dishes are available. The price is very reasonable and the red house wine was extremely palatable especially after the first glass. The house white is, in opinion, not up to much. This taverna is probably the most popular in Skala Kallonis and if you do arrive there by 8 o'clock you may have to wait for a table to become available. We dined here on several occasions and can thoroughly recommend it.

“Ambrosia-The food of the Greek Gods”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

There are not too many restaurants in Skala Kallonis but the Ambrosia far exceeds all in its food quality,standard of service and cleanliness. I have travelled extensively in Greece and Turkey but never tasted a Moussaka like that serve up at the Ambrosia. There were a variety of Greek dishes to make the mouth water. The desserts were gratis and invariably tasty and mouth watering. We enjoyed the red house wine which was priced quite favourably. The service was cheerful and efficient, particularly so as the waiters/waitress had to repeatedly climb steps to service that part of the restaurant that occupied a terrace on the other side of the road. The owner was,perhaps a little eccentric,but he kept a watchful eye on food quality and service. To miss eating at the Ambrosia is an experience wasted.
