Based on a recommendation of a bellman at our hotel, we ate lunch at Ambrosia. We said that we wanted a simple lunch in a non-touristy location. Ambrosia was his answer and we were very pleased. Sat at an outside table. The menus were in...More

Bad service with old waiters and the feeling you need to hurry up. The food wasn't fresh. It's not expensive but unpleasant food doesn't deserve your money. I don't understand who can enjoy it.

We dropped to Ambrosia for a quick lunch and it was a good choice. They have a great variety of different typical Greek food. Grilled meats are delicious. We certainly got to get back there for more awsome culinary expirience.
