“Get one of the balcony tables!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

The whole experience at this restaurant was sitting on the balcony overlooking an amazing view. The service was also excellent. And the food was of course quite good too. But mainly you'll remember the view - definitely sit outside. We had no problems with reservations (only made a couple of days before) and getting seated on time. Charming, romantic place! Visited August 2012.

“Good food, great view from the terrace.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

This is a stylish restaurant overlooking the caldera with very good food and efficient service. The outdoor area has the views, inside is a cosy cave house. We really enjoyed the dinner (only slightly spoilt by the volume of the music).

“Romatic and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

A candlelight dinner on the side of a mountain facing a volcanic view so the food could be ok but it wasn't. The food was some of the best on the island. Good, good and good. Wonderful service also. Make reservations during the season. We were lucky and able to walk in but it was after sunset. All things revolve around the sunset in IA.

“Very important to book it right ! Or don't bother going there !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Everyone should note that there is only 3 tables ( for 2 ) with views of the caldera described on there website .

With this in mind before our visit we went to the website , to get the phone number so we could book the table we wanted , and also get the address.

After a quick look through the web site , we found that the only address offered on the web site was " located near the main Church " .
I am a devout atheist , So I can't tell the difference between a church , a synagogue or a mosque , conveniently in the area where the restaurant is supposed to be according to google maps there is 2 " church religion buildings " I had no idea which one was the main " church religion stop/station" , and the restaurant is near neither of them , we found the restaurant by asking 2 shop keepers to direct us , ( the first guy , with a smug grin on his face said " ambrosia ? Yeah it's near the main church " .... Ha ha ha ya douch bag ) ... As you walk the path which has all shops there is a square , if you are standing in the square facing the caldera , it is to your left just out of the square , there is a faded sign at knee hight which says "ambrosia" on it , you will only see this sign if you are walking south to north , as it is on the north wall of the stairs facing south .

They did not offer their phone number on the web site at all . To book you needed to send an email , we sent an email 2 days before and specifically asked for a table " on the edge of the balcony , one of the tables with un obstructed views of the caldera please ? " . We got no confirmation or response . So we turned up at the time we booked for , when we arrived and saw that all the tables we wanted were taken , we advised them that we had booked , they claimed to have not received the email .... We weren't happy but decided to stay .

All of that said , by the end of our meal ( and wine :-) ) .... We were extremely satisfied with the service , listen out for the exceptional waiter who answers every request with a big smile and " of course I can you that ! "

We thoroughly enjoyed the amazing food was easily the best food we ate on the island
