The best restaurant on Kalamaki strip. Everyone welcoming, food lovely and waiters very friendly. No hesitation in recommending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again August 2015 (eighth year running)
We visited Kalamaki between 10 July 2013 and 17 July 2013 and have to agree with all the positive comments made on this website. It really is a wonderful place to eat and we ate there twice during the week. It would have been more but we wanted to visit some others too.
WE TRIED THREE RESTAURANTS BEFORE WE TRIED THE AMBROSIA.
THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT SO MY FAMILY AND I DECIDED THAT WAS THE PLACE FOR US SO WE DINED THERE THE LAST FOUR NIGHTS OF OUR HOLIDAY.
THE STAFF COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE HELPFUL IN EXPLAINING EXACTLY AS TO WHAT SOME OF THE DISHES WERE.
I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM, I HAD ROBERT (no he's not English) MOST NIGHTS WE
DISCUSSED ON HOW MANY SARDINES OR GRILLED PRAWNS I COULD HAVE AND AT THE SAME PRICE.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BEWARE ROBERT
" WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR "
HAVING TRIED THREE OTHER RESTAURANTS,THE AMBROSIA WAS BY FAR THE BEST.
THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT ALONG WITH THE STAFF WHO ALL ADDED TO A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE. ROBERT (no he's not english) WAS GREAT,WE EVEN DONE DEALS ON HOW MANY SARDINES OR GRILLED PRAWNS WE COULD HAVE AND THAT WAS FOR THE SAME PRICE.
I WAS WITH MY FAMILY OF SIX IN TOTAL AND WE COULD NOT FIND FAULT WITH ANYTHING.
AS PROMISED BOYS AND GIRLS, " WE WILL BE BACK"

All of our meals are freshly prepared with the best quality produce , so occassionally we may take more time to bring our food to your table. ...The Ambrosia management.
We stayed at Exotica hotel Kalamaki July 2012. Whilst staying in Kalamaki we visited Ambrosia restaurant at least 5 times during our 2 week stay. Between the six of our group we tried many dishes off the menu. Every single meal we had was spot on, excellent food. The service was amazing, they made us so welcome, especially our 2 children of 4 and 9 yrs.. A week after getting home that is still all they are talking about!! Fantastic dancing. Can't wait to go back.
i have tried this restaurant twice, it was wonderful. I have been there with my husband and my 2 kids, Sam and Katie. the food there was great, the staff absolutely friendly and the atmosphere so nice. But our favorite part was kids dancing, when the waiters take my kids and some other kids that were in the restaurant by that time, and dance a Greek dance. I have felt so beautiful when i saw that my kids was so happy. i would like to thank Mr Achilles and Mr Roberto (2 of the waiters) for their service and for the whole atmosphere that they make in to the restaurant for us.
defenately one of the best meals i ever had... the food was great and i am absolutely impressed by the whole situation in this restaurant... i have had lamb kleftiko... it was so tasteful... later the waiters dance a greek dance... Mr Achilles told me that the dance was ZORBAS... at the end of the night i have ask for the bill... the price was absolutely nice for our food that we have eat... it was a great honor for me that i have been in this restaurant.. and i'm sour about one thing... i will go there again the next year... thnx...
average at best have tried most of their food over the last 5 years.
i do not understand why this is not in the top 15 resturants by trip advisor , just got back today 17th oct 2011, ate at the ambrosia 3 times this week the best mousakka i have had in 30 years, the balaklavas my 13 yr old son loved it and he is so fussy , every thing we had to eat there , ( mousakka , pizza , baked potato with ham and cheese , calamari ( done to perfection ) best i have ever had , aris and roberto the two waiters we had where very friendly and such a good laugh the greek dancing with the flames on the floor and the plate smashing where teriffic , this is only a few of the things we ate there this week will be my first stop for food when i go back to kalamaki in the future , hopefully next year , would highly recomend this to everyone , was just my son and my self as i am a single parent , when i asked them to call me a taxi , one of them actually drove me back to my hotel on 2 out of the 3 ocassions they did offer the third time but i needed to go to the supermarket , is truley food fit for the greek gods , if i had to rate it out of 10 i would give it a 10 plus a must for all food lovers
Just returned from a week in Zante and had to add a review about Ambrosia. The food was amazing and i enjoyed every minute of being in the place. The staff are excellent, really friendly and helpful and made me feel at ease as i was travelling alone. The manager Chris, welcomed me at the door and couldnt have been nicer.
hi we have visited kalamki four years on the trot now and love it so much. There are a few really good restaurants but the best one has to be ambrosia. From the warm welcome by the house manager and to all the guys who were fantastic. Feel now we have made some really good friends and looking forward to our return next year. The food is amazing good value the greek dancing outstanding well done. Hope you try it will not be disappointed paula john amber and kiera x x x
Went to Ambrosia several times during our stay in August this year. Wasnt disappointed all the previous reviews spot. In some ways the food is secondary as the staff with their dance routines and endless energy and friendliness makes you feel as if you being there is so important to them.
Have just returned from Zante, and we stayed in kalamaki and went to the Ambrosia a few times, we had great service and great food! The waiters were very friendly and kind to my 9 yr old son, making him feel special.
Wonderful restaurant with fantastic food, service, staff & entertainment. The staff genuinely care about their customers and the food they offer. The atmosphere is fantastic with plenty of Greek dancing and plate smashing! Thank you to Christo and co for several wonderful evenings there! Will definitely go again when I return to Kalamaki!

1st class restaurant. The sevice and food excellent . Staff really friendly and polite , nothing was too much trouble . Try their Lamb Kelftico , really nice . Would recomed anyone goin to kalamaki , to go there beacuse once you've been there you wouldn't want to go any where else.
I have been to Kalamaki several times and have eaten at most of the restaurants there. The food at the Ambrosia is brilliant, the best in Kalamaki in my opinion. The servce is second to none and their house wines are excellent. Try their stuffed chicken, it is the best I have had, anywhere.
Oh wow the food here was amazing and the portions very plentiful!! I am surprised to see it has no reviews maybe it's a new restaurant this year? Anyway, highly reommended. Couldn't fault the place from the staff to the food and ambience. Excellent.
Highly recommend the specials the Zakynthian lamb and pork in wine and mushroom sauce- Melt in the mouth! Yummy!!
