There is a new restaurant in town, Ambrosia, situated next to O’Brians Pub in Van Riebeeckhoogte, Uitenhage.

As part of its opening specials, all guests will, on arrival, receive a glass of wine or coke, on the house. The specials will be from today at 17:00 until Saturday.

Ashley Stoltz took over O’Brians Pub during 2007 from Brian Koen, who established this popular pub in Uitenhage.

“I realised there is an opportunity, specifically in this area, to extend O’Brians by adding a restaurant. So we started Ambrosia,” said Ashley, who is running Ambrosia in partnership with Dr Nadine Roux.

Ambrosia supplies O’Brians Pub with snack baskets and bar lunches. The bar menu is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays with lots of specialities to celebrate the forthcoming Rugby World Cup as well as every weekend thereafter.

Ambrosia is ideal for functions or celebrations and can easily accommodate 24 guests indoors with another 30 in the restaurant yard. They also do spitbraais. It is wheelchair friendly and the non-smoking policy is applied at the premises.

Ambrosia is proud of its Head Chef, Christopher Stoltz, who received his training at the Protea Hotel in Cape Town. The restaurant comprises a team of 10 fully trained staff and waitresses. The specialities at the grill include fish, chicken and steaks. Other specialities include pizzas and pastas. There also is a kiddies’ menu and a kiddies’ playing corner will be complete soon. All the meat (grade A) and vegetables are from the Gamtoos Valley. Douglas Green is the housewine supplier.

Breakfast is served on a daily basis between 10:00 and 13:00. The operating hours are from Tuesdays to Saturdays between 10:00 and 20:30
