Imperial Resto

Reviewed By Anneila F

Really, I've never tasted lobster as good as when I was here. The portion was big enough for my stomach. I really enjoyed eating here. Besides lobster, the shrimps and fishes were very delicious, too.

Istana Berkat

Reviewed By faozanrizal - Berlin, Germany

Like many restaurant in Ambon they serve fish and he sea food is so fresh in this island so i recommended you to take any fish cuisine while you here in Ambon. This restaurant from the exterior is like small restaurant with street food but once you inside and taste their cuisine, wow the fish is very tasty and fresh we order from grilled fish to Ambon style with yellow curry and sweet and sour fish, all is good, the shrimp , clam and crab is just nice. they serve the crab with yellow curry and salty eggs dressing, surprisingly savory and delicious. their juice is also nice some local fruit called gandaria is sweet and sour drink with manggoish taste :)

Barista Coffee Shop

Reviewed By 408Adam - Pontianak

mostly coffee and cakes/bread
you can get great food here and access wi fi.
After i stumbled on this place i returned again and again and if i was there id be back for the brilliant atmosphere that is as much down to the food and drink as the patrons and staff. This place is so well managed yet relaxed that its very easy to make this place the focal point in any day. Go and enjoy

Ratu Gurih

Reviewed By Xenalook - Williams Lake

Pick your seafood and have it BBQ'd on the grill at the entrance of the restaurant. Choose between a section with A/C on no A/C. The A/C section is a bit bland but Ambon is a hot city.
Seafood was fresh and tasty and for US$ 20 for a dinner for two with appys and a large beer each, excellent value.

Cili Padi Restaurant

Reviewed By BackPackMaluku

Went here for dinner with two cousins. We ordered various items of the menu, including sate ayam, beef, chicken, sayur tjampur and ikan bakar with tjolo-tjolo sauce. Except for the fish everything else tasted fine. The fish however was very dry, meaning it's been cooked for too long. The tjolo-tjolo sauce was not even near how it's supposed to be (I'm of Moluccan descent, so I know how it should taste). Apart from that, the service was very slow, even with only three tables occupied.
So no recommendation for fish dishes here.

Rumah Makan Sari Gurih

Reviewed By farahemi - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Went for a group dinner here, had crabs, prawns, fish, vege - all good. Minor comment would be that their AC had some issues so for groups dining at the private area, might get a bit hot.

Rumah Makan Dedes

Reviewed By Divergal2013 - Jakarta, Indonesia

You must eat seafood in Ambon. This is one of the place I was recommended to go to. Maybe the choice of the fish I ordered was wrong, but I think the sauce did not get into the fish. The squid and shrimp is good.
