“Organised Chaos!!!!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

My husband and I dined here for his Birthday, last time we ate here we dined inside due to the wind and coolness etc. Arrived last night and we're kept waiting by a bunch of amateurs, eventually an English woman approached us, my husband asked if we could eat inside only to be told "No!" we had come a long way in a taxi so had little option but to stay. I was handed a pashmina, but due to the wind the candle kept blowing out, I couldn't read the menu, we waited 20 minutes tp get a drink and order wine. The food was cold due to the out door temperature. The final insult was the bill was wrong. (Overcharged us) I then had to ask for our change whilst my husband went to keep the taxi. Eventually the waiter returned and I explained that normally my husband and I were very generous with tips but due our experience I could not tip that night....he shrugged his shoulders, no apology and walked off....We won't be back!!!

“Relaxing by the sea”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We had an enjoyable evening at the Ambiance restaurant. On our arrival we were shown to a table overlooking the sea. It was quite windy that evening so the staff were supplying blankets for extra warmth. The staff were excellent and very attentive. The local wine was very good and so was the food. We were very impressed with how the restaurant was run and would recommend a meal at this restaurant.

“Best place to eat in North Cyprus”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We regularly holiday in Northern Cyprus but this was the first time at Ambiance. We found it through Trip Advisor and thought to give it a try. The food was excellent, the service very friendly and the location spectacular. Highly recommend this restaurant especially to non-locals, although even the locals we spoke to had been there or knew of Ambiance, and all because of the level of quality. $€ reasonable for what is served. Will definitely return during next trip.

“Lost the plot!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We took friends to Ambiance on 18 May - what a disaster! They were hosting a corporate event and obviously could not cope with that and dinner bookings. The Maitre'd spent the evening running around like a headless chicken (literally) and the staff were totally disorganized. This lady also had an unprofessional way of speaking to guests. We sat with our dirty plates for 20 minutes after we had finished eating and had to ask three times for our second bottle of wine. Understand Tracey is 7 months pregnant and not working. When we asked Metin why the service was so bad he replied "the service is bad because we are very busy"! He did not even deny the service was bad. Despite this the food was good but it left a bad taste to the evening. Let's hope Tracey plans to employ a Nanny so she can get back to running what has always been an efficient and super restaurant. We did get a glass of brandy on the house, but then doesn't everbody?
