So to start with the location, they are just off of the main square in oia and you walk around to the back where you find the restaurant with a bottom terrace, top terrace and indoor seating. I would recommend make a reservation on the top terrace which has a great view over the caldera. The restaurant is very romantic... More

I was wary of this restaurant because of the mixed reviews but decided to give it a shot anyways expecting overpriced food but an amazing view. Booked in 6:30PM reservation to catch the sunset. Not a bad dining experience, but extremely overrated. When we arrived, we realized that almost EVERY restaurant in Oia has great views and Ambrosia, while it... More

We recently spent 4 days in Oia and had chance to look around many of the restaurants and bars in the village. After a very enjoyable first night at the Ambrosia my wife was keen to go back and sample more of their menu. On both nights we had a very pleasant meal without it being anything amazing. The food...

We stayed in Oia for 7 days and tried different places for dinner. Ambrosia served us the best food we had. It was more refined than other places and the service was pretty good too. On the down side, the tables are standing very close to each other so your romantic dinner and your privacy are somehow limited. It is... More

It's a small restaurant with good service and a nice menu. Not fantastic, but ok. We liked the calamari and the octopus with fava beans. The view is georgeous and service very good. A bot pricey, as are most things in Oia.

Never, ever in my life have I sat so cramped on top of other people. The food was ok, I guess good for "Santorini standards". Mille feuille of Aubergine was not very good. The Haloumi should have been cooked/grilled a little longer to extract more of its beautiful salty flavour. The cheese sauce on top was just odd. Fava beans... More

We went here after hearing many wonderful things about it and it is very good; however, we felt it was reaching for a high end dining experience and it just didn't deliver. The prices were the highest of any restaurant we went to in Santorini, we were somewhat crowded in our table, and it was also the only place in... More

Service was abysmal. Good food, pretty setting. But when waiters disappear the meal turns sour. There is no reason to abandon a table--happened that multiple couples on our level were left hanging. Too much money for such treatment.

Recommended by Lonely Planet and the hotel we booked a table for 2 to see the sunset and enjoy fine dining. The restaurant was pleasantly and romantically decorated with jazzy background music and a rose on each table. Our table was situated with a breathtaking view on the Caldera. The staff was friendly and offered suggestions matching our food and... More

The food here is superb and the service excellent. We ate here whilst away in September 2016. You do need to book in advance because this is a very popular venue
