The staff were friendly and attentive, even though on both our visits to this restaurant the place was very busy. Food was excellent, very tasty, well presented and the overall visits were extremely enjoyable experiences.

Fantastic taverna. We ate here 4 times during our stay in Gournes. Returning not only for the wonderful food but also the very welcoming and friendly staff and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend rating here- take it easy on the Raki though 😊😊

The Ambrosia Taverna supplied us with delicious food and great service all throughout our holiday. The staff are friendly, helpful, and will supply you with ample amounts of watermelon and vitamins after each meal!

Came here in May 2017. The views, service and food were all top notch and very reasonably priced. We stayed in Kokkini Hani, so only a short walk to Gournes. Well worth it.

An excellent Greek restaurant with traditional food both for dining and snacking. The local wine is very acceptable and the moussaka and baklava are also very good.
