Although it has a high score on Tripadvisor and also the Malta guide recommends it, we weren't satisfied with this restaurant. When you enter, you see a sober place, fit for a business lunch/dinner, but the menu is written on a blackboard on the wall. Then you get the service of an exclusive restaurant, although it's not required. The waiter... More

A firm favourite although the limited menu has stayed the same for a while so a bit tired of the choices. Small intimate atmosphere and great place to spend an evening with friends. Quite pricey with wine and three courses but a good night out.

Enjoyed a great dinner sitting inside the restaurant. French influenced Mediterranean menu. My cheese soufflé was excellent followed by wonderful glazed pork belly. Varied selection of wine at reasonable prices. Ambrosia has a slightly more formal air than some nearby restaurants but we engaged with all the staff including the owner/chef with whom we had an interesting discussion after service... More

The food (we had a pasta dish and a risotto) was very good but overpriced. The restaurant has a pretentious air about it, not helped by the aloof waiting staff. We felt ill at ease with the service, which was very fussy (an unsmiling waiter repositioned items of glassware and cutlery on our table at least three times without uttering... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here during our holiday in Malta. We have visited before and we always enjoy the wonderful, fresh food and Maltese wine they serve. The menu isn't extensive - it's all on a chalk board on the wall - but there's something for everyone. Thank you and we will return on our next... More

A cozy restaurant with a limited number of covers (maybe because it was too chilly / windy to serve dinner at the outside tables) but busy, very popular (obviously some returning customers) with a menu board showing the starter and main course options available - this would suggest the menu changes regularly depending on the available ingredients. Service was delightful... More

I liked their simple straightward lunch menu with not too menu options. I had the prawn and mushroom risotto. Firstly they brought out what I think was rabbit liver risotto and immediately my waiter came and retrieved it even before I had registrted it was not the right dish. That dish wasn't even on the menu. My waiter gave me... More

First time having a lunch at this restaurant. Sat outside to enjoy the sun... Party of 3, ordered 1 stuffed squid & 2 sea bass. I had the squid. Delicious!!! My colleagues had the same opinion of the sea bass. Desserts were good too.

One of our first dinners in Valetta on a brisk night. I had a wonderful pork belly with honey dish. And although my husband enjoyed his linguine with prawns, he convinced me to share with him, because he loved the pork belly, too. The soft comfy chairs were nice after a day of walking around the city.
