By all accounts the "scrumptious food" and "cozy atmosphere" is "always excellent"

Chef Patron Chris Farrugia has been a familiar face in the restaurant scene for many years. Despite fierce competition, Ambrosia has always maintained its popularity both with the lunch crowd as well as with the evening diners. Nestled in the heart of Valletta in picturesque St Christopher street, it’s a hop, skip and jump away from your evening at the theatre or your morning spent shopping and sightseeing. Its timeless atmosphere is both warm and elegant, and the comfortable chairs and leather banquet bench allow you to relax and linger long into the evening. A quick business lunch is just as easily catered for with attentive and efficient service. Over time, the restaurant walls have collected a selection of hand-penned quotes from diners varying from personal to inspirational.

The menu is adjusted daily depending on the availability of produce and may be viewed on the large blackboard on the wall. Every dish is polished and well presented, using the freshest of ingredients and a sprinkling of imagination. Starters include baked goat’s cheese soufflé and crunchy asparagus salad with shavings of aged artisanal pecorino cheese, and fat, juicy steamed mussels bathed in a delightful white wine broth. Hearty risotto with rabbit liver and truffle cream, and roasted boneless quail with walnut stuffing and wrapped in bacon, are staples that must not be ignored. As a suitably delicious ending to your meal try the noteworthy creme brulee ice cream for dessert.
