Ambrosia, with it’s beautiful traditional interior, was the first licensed restaurant in Rotorua and is a short stroll from picturesque Lake Rotorua. The superb setting offers a choice of dining either indoors or outdoors. The spacious indoor area with its vibrant décor, and richly polished wooden floors, or the large outdoor area, creates an ideal setting for enjoying breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, meeting friends for coffee or a having a few drinks and tapas after work. Fridays have happy hour from 5pm to 7pm with discounted drinks and cocktails. Ambrosia is perfect for functions, such as celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, work functions or weddings, and can seat 110 comfortably.Owner/Chef Kristopher has travelled extensively and has been in the restaurant industry for the past 19 years. His menu is global contemporary with dishes from around the world. Kristopher has seasonal specials, such as mulled wine to warm you on cold winter evenings, and offers an “early bird” dinner special – just $29 for three courses between 5pm and 7pm every day with the dessert, of course, being the ever-popular delicious dessert – Ambrosia.
