We had read so many great things about this restaurant. This was one of two (1800) that we wanted to try before we left Santorini. They are only open for dinner.

We had our dinner outside to enjoy the view, unfortunately it was also one of those extremely windy (and chilly) nights. The food was incredible although during the meal, one of the water glass spilled some water into my wife's duck dish. The waiter took the plate away and returned with it completely removed. The only thing was that they had to heat up the duck a bit more and it slightly overcooked the duck in the process. This is quite reasonable since I wouldn't have expected them to throw it away and serve us a brand new portion.

Despite the wind, the experience of watching the sun set over looking the water and the hill side is one we will never forget. It is an incredible experience that we will remember for a very long time.

We had dinner at Ambrosia in April, so it was too cold to site inside. The ambiance inside is a bit dated, but I expect the outside tables to be a lot nicer.
The food was ok, but not fantastic, compared to some of the other restaurants in Oia, while it was quite a bit more pricey.

My fiance and I had a wonderful dining experience of our lives. The restaurant is situated on the side of the cliff with a spectacular view of the sea and backdrop of a picturesque sunset. By far, it is one of the most romantic restaurants. Despite the chilly weather early in the travel season, our waiter offered us blankets for outside dining. It is a quaint little place with heavenly views of the sea. It is bar none one of the best place to enjoy the sunset. The food is also amazing with the dessert that is dreamly delicious.We definitely recommend this place and look forward to returning.

Loved the elegance of the cliff-side restaurant, and the food quality was excellent, particularly the seafood. Just know that the famous sunsets in Oia don't really apply this early in the year--still very beautiful with impeccable service.
