Ambrosia Review

Ask any savvy local where to get the best sushi on the island and you'll undoubtedly be pointed to this tiny wood-and-tatami-paneled dining room with indoor waterfall tucked away into a resort near the beach. Grab a seat at the sushi bar and watch owner and head sushi chef Masa prepare an impressive array of superfresh sashimi delicacies. Sushi lovers can't go wrong with the Ambrosia special ($40): miso soup served with a sampler of 15 kinds of sashimi, seven pieces of sushi, and sushi rolls. There's an assortment of lightly fried tempura and teriyaki dishes and a killer bento box at lunch. Enjoy it all with a glass of premium sake or a cold glass of Sapporo beer.

    Ambrosia Review

    The Santa Maria is a new location from the tiny spot at which Ambrosia started. I worried that they would loose their touch when transported to theis new, upscale, and frankly very beautiful location. They have not. Their food and service remain superior. Reservations are still a "must", so plan ahead for Key West's best sushi!
