“Greek Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

A good range of authentic Greek food. It must be good if its got people in it all day and the Greeks use it at night.

“Above average tavern for holidaymakers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

It is really a place of fair standards for a dinner or lunch if you are holidaying in the area. The service is good and the food is fair. There is a wide rage of selection of dishes starting from cold and hot starters, pizzas, pastas, meats and so on. I am personally always taken a bit aback when confronted with such a wide range of selection for it is an indication that the place is 'good at everything' but is it good at anything particular? Being around so many taverns and eateries in Crete my expectations are rather high and I can unmistakably tell which one is authentic (unique Cretan family-owned feel and ambiance + fantastic food) and which one - works more towards the tourists. So I would rank 'Ambrosia' as 'above the average' for the holiday makers and tourists in Crete. You will not be disappointed but will you be impressed?

“Great Sunset View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

A typical Cretan taverna - great! The mousaka was more potatoe that aubergine based, but still lovely.

“Typically Greek!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

We were staying in Goldmen Bay but fancied a change towards the end of our holiday. Food ambience service all excellent, with beautifully mannered cats who sit very quietly waiting to see if you might just treat them with a scrap or two! Thoroughly reccommend... Try it. Squid was excellent as was the omelette which hubby had - enormous!! YAMMASS!!

“Nice atmosphere, great food and lovely cats!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We went to the Ambrosia 4 times during our 10 day holiday and enjoyed every visit. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the food was really good and, being "cat people", we enjoyed the company of about 4 cats who waited very politely for odd scraps from anyone who was feeling charitable. Highly recommended.
