We dine all over the place and orinally being from Auckland are accustomed to fine dining.

Ambria is simply wonderful we dine there regularly and it is 'almost' always consistent.

We travel extensively & dine only at the best restaurants. To be fair, Katikati is small and has few eating establishments; nevertheless, we thought Ambria's reputation fell flat. The meal was good, not fantastic, the room was chilly, and the service was poor - our server spent too much time with patrons she clearly knew personally. We found it a bit pricey for what it is.

Passing through & only just noticed this place. We were not disapointed, the entire experience was excellent, the service, the food, the view & good value as well. This will definately be our Katikati stop when we are next through there. Highly recomended.

Was the twins birthday and the food and service was a complete experince..
Regardless the size of the groups that were also prestent all the diners were treated as individuals,truely a welcoming site in small town hospotaility

The portions sizes were great and we found that the meals were priced accordingly.

We will be back to sample the rest of the vast menu..

Came into this restaurant by chance , and was advised that it was fully booked on a Tuesday night , but they could slot me in if i was finished in 1 hour
So I was given a table on the deck
Had Pizza Garlic bread as a starter
then a pork cutlet,,,, Divine , the sauces and accompanying vegetables were to die for
The taste of the different vegetables was divine, roasted spring onions tasted just like leeks, the sauces and the stuffed apple were just excellent , the flavours all enhanced the meal
Staff were all very young but did their jobs very well, nothing appeared any trouble
Finished with a coffee as i didnt have time for dessert
Wine and beers appeared to be all Lion based , hence they may have a Lion arrangment
When i paid the bill I was advised they had discounted my main course as on Tuesday nights they do a 2 for 1 meal deal , so they didnt think I should have had to pay full price
That was totally unexpected and any other reastaurant would have said that was my bad luck if there was only 1 person
All in all a place that I would revisit nd would also recommend
