I called here for lunch and went of the kebabs. I was served 3 large shish kebabs and they were fantastic - tasty and soft. The pitta bread was fresh and wonderful and the humus was unbelievable, I've never been much of a fan of humus but this was wonderful. Overall a great meal and highly recommended!

My best friend and I have eaten here two nights in a row. I certainly am full! I highly recommend the cheese on the grill. Everything we have had was wonderful. I honestly could not say anything bad about the food. The portions are amazing. The location is amazing. The staff, while not unfriendly, could be more interactive. They are,... More

The Ambrosia offers good food in a pretty quiet and not so touristy area south of the Acropolis. Food is average, prices low, service friendly

Great little restaurant, excellent value and good food. Situated right beside the Metro and only a short walk from the Intercontinental. Seems very popular with local people - always a good sign!

Just a short walk from our hotel, we decided to have dinner here around 8pm. Was not so busy. Sat outside, had a nice ambiance. Ordered meatballs, moussaka, greek salad, and gyros. Food did not disappoint, everything was well-seasoned and delicious. Waiter was very nice and patient with us. A pleasant experience overall!

Hot off the plane and hungry. The Amvrosia (Grill House) is short walk from our hotel; recommended by the doorman as we left. Ordered 2 Souvlaki and Greek salad. Was sure what we were getting when the Souvlaki was 2.2 Euro. Well we were not disappointed and our expectations of Greek food were maintained. Staff very friendly and helpful selecting... More

Our AIR BNB host told us about this restaurant. It's a gorgeous little street with many restaurants and bars but at half price of the Plaka area. Great range of local Greek food. Cheapest beer. Quick service. Menu in English and Greek. Outdoor and indoor seating. Busy take away . We went back on numerous occasions .
