“Great environment and delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

The food was delicious! We had the calamari in pesto and had their fresh catch of the day, definitely one of the best restaurants we ate at while in Santorini. One caveat to the restaurant, the owner/manger seemed selective about the customers, granted that many that were there had made reservations through the hotel, he was selective about his walk-in's. If you want to try the food here, I'd highly suggest asking your hotel in making a reservation.

“Amazing views and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

The view is just amazing, food is excellent, and service is great. This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or just to have a great meal with one of the most beautiful views you will ever see.
This restaurant only has about 10 tables that look towards the Caldera area of Santorini, so make sure you reserve with enough time.
I made the decision to reserve at Ambrosia the night my wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and it was definitely the perfect choice.

There is one slight issue and its the fact that they have few seating hours at night time. Because it is a very small restaurant, your 7:30 pm dinner will most likely end abruptly at 9:30 as the staff will start speeding things up to make sure they can seat those who have the 9:30 reservations. Make sure that you reserve during the sunset hour which is incredible. We just got back and sunset was at 8:35pm, but I am not sure how it changes during the year.

“Up to standard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Very good food. Excellent service. Enjoyable atmosphere. Best food I've had so far on the island. Only thing lacking was a cocktail list. Would recommend.

Stay away from 1800 if your looking for a meal as nice.

Be sure to make a reservation

“Good food, great views and very expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Of all the restaurants along the main drag in Oia, Ambrosia seems to be the most elegant. It clearly positions itself as a highly upscale restaurant. The waiter was knowledgeable and the service was good. The views are spectacular although the outside seating area is tight. The food was good but the prices are comparable to top tier restaurants in any major city. We enjoyed our meal. However for the value, I would think twice before going back..

“Unable to book”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I've emailed 3 times requesting a booking for my upcoming trip. No one has replied to me, and there is no other way to contact them except for email. Has put a bad taste in my mouth for visiting this restaurant, so will look elsewhere.
