Being guests recently of the Ambassador Hotel, it was convenient to find that the in-house restaurant was an ideal location for meals. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and found the quality and variety of meals more than satisfactory, with the service and support offered by the staff as excellent.

The staff are friendly and helpful and food is great. Prices that will not break the budget. Fast turn around from time you place your order. Not left sitting for long waiting for order to be taken.

Breakfast on warming plates were cold. Cereals and other selections were very good. I enjoyed the quality of coffee from the machine.

Lacks ambiance imho but it caters mainly to those staying in the hotel, the breakfast was great value for money. Most important they make a decent coffee

This cafe is located inside Perth Ambassador Hotel. The price seems to be higher but the portion is actually also bigger, and quality of food is better, so it is very much worth the price.

A fairly small restaurant which offers a very good breakfast. The evening menu is limited and there are no fancy frills in either the service or the presentation. It is however suitable for a reasonably quick modestly priced meal. The Pumpkin soup can be recommended.
