A lovely setting in a little square. There is a real buzz about this cafe. Good menu, with good quality local food. All fresh and all delicious. Waiters are not especially friendly, but they serve efficiently. Hence the four stars rather than 5. Generous portions that we ended up ordering too much food. They happily wrapped up all that was...

We loved sitting under a large umbrella between green hedges on sides on a hot evening. We ordered village/greek salad (mediocre at best in terms of the ingredient quality, almost no herbs and no vinegar), pork steak (overcooked but good flavour) and a fish (good). The prices were higher and food less good than what we encountered on Crete in... More

We found this restaurant by accident, however it was awesome. Their meatballs are amazing and the staff understood English fairly well and have accomodated their menus with pictures to help tourists. We made a special trip back for a second meal.

We actually were trying to find another restaurant (#6 on tripadvisor). We went to the other restaurant and didn't care for the ambiance - i'm sure the food was good. We had walked by Ambrosia and noticed it was really busy - always a good sign. Wow, we were impressed. The staff was good (enough) but the prices/food were awesome.... More

It is a few years since we visited Ambrosia and we were not disappointed - the food was just as good and reasonably priced. It was very busy with both locals and tourists.Very handy for Sygrou Fix Metro

We wandered up and down this street and passed by several hip looking bars in favour of what looked like a more traditional Greek taverna on our last night in Athens. The food was plentiful and fine, though nothing special. The atmosphere was unremarkable with mainly tourist clientele and a TV playing soccer for the waiters to watch. A motorbike... More

Food was really very good and priced affordable. I had the chicken gyro. Waiter was very friendly. Location was fine and atmosphere was good. The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy our dinner outside.

Food was affordable and really good. Best bread we found in all of Athens. Calamari was just good, but the feta (Greek salad) and Taziki and gyros were wonderful. We tried other places but kept coming back here day after day. Fried/ grilled cheese was wonderful. Try lots of items... I bet you will be back. All the local residents... More
