The Beta is the Alpha and Omega of real Ambonese food...
A superior pick-and-mix warung with alarming lime-and-orange decor and a devoted following...
It has fluorescent tiles and the atmosphere is bland, but the fish – perfectly grilled by the coal-stoking chef, smothered in chilli and served alongside three tasty sambals – is fall-off-the-bone fresh...
More like a Western idea of a restaurant than is common in Maluku – complete with more Western clientele and prices – Sari Gurih is nonetheless a great place to eat Malukan seafood...
With its lovely Dutch-colonial windows, ample garden seating and central location, this is a great place to select pastries presented on dozens of oven-warm racks...
This local chain, disguised as an indie Padang food joint, offers better and fresher food than the usual fried fish and chicken choices you'll find in similar warungs. It's also one of the few places open on Sundays.
Decor is entirely lacklustre but this is a hugely popular Chinese-Indo seafood house. It does all the soups, and fish, crab and shrimp dishes you've grown to love. Plus it draws a huge local lunch crowd.
Sit inside on faintly silly, bow-wrapped chairs or out on the waterside terrace for generous portions of shrimp-rich nasi goreng or spicy squid (cumi bakar). A little out of town, but well situated on the bay.
Outwardly a typical, cheap, dining barn, the Paradise is considered the place for hard-to-find genuine Ambonese food, including papeda .
Open-sided terrace café with ethnic designs, fabulous views and a few Western menu options. Karpan bemos drive past.
