Description: 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.

We chose food on the comfort side as it was chilly and we opted to dine outside, all our meals were top notch with awesome presentation and value for money, the staff were knowledgeable and constantly check to see we were enjoying the food. I had Lambs fry, bacon and mushrooms, great flavor and cooked to perfection, the Calamari was tender and served on a great salad , one of our party had the Big Breakfast and that s what I will have next time. No fancy foreign sausage, and a lamb chop which was over and above the usual mix. The girls decided on a dessert and went for the Fondue for two what a great dessert, sliced fruit 4 kinds, marshmallows, Brownie and Sponge, all dipped in chocolate sauce, it would also make a fantastic afternoon tea for the kids , just great. and don't change we'll be back and we can't recommend it enough.

Looking for a quiet business meeting venue for dinner for three.
Have lunched at this restaurant previously and was a little disappointed with the atmosphere for dinner

The restaurant is one of many eateries located in the Eat Street. The food is well prepared and presented. The price is very reasonable considering the good quality of food.

We each ordered a three course for $29 which came with breads or soup, chicken or steak or lamb, and ambrosia for dessert. For what we paid, we ate extremely well! The mains were absolutely delicious, and the presentation of the food was fantastic! Seriously worth what we paid, probably worth more. The staff were hilarious and approachable and they made the dining experience that much more enjoyable. We will totally be back next time we're in Rotorua!!

This is so cool to see...we were sitting in the bar...Sobar...next door and ordered chicken wings from the Ambrosia Restaurant...they are the best chicken wings we have had for long time!

Love the way businesses can work together as a big team to keep their customers happier
