Ambeli Greek Taverna is a family restaurant that offers authentic cuisine in an atmosphere that will transport you to the Greek islands.

Christos Zavolas, the owner of Ambeli, grew up in the restaurant business. His father owned diners and his mother cooked authentic Greek dishes throughout his childhood. The restaurant’s recipes come from Christos’ mother, and Christos has worked closely with his chef to make sure they have been perfected.

Grab your favorite bottle of wine (or Ouzo), and head over to Ambeli to enjoy a taste of Greece right here in Cranford.

What a great feeling it is to give back to some of our heroes during these crazy times. Seeing up close what these men and women are going through was truly eye opening. It is said many times, but during times like this it is obvious who true HEROES are. Thank you to ALL of you who put their own well being at risk for the benefit of others. ... See MoreSee Less

We appreciate the kind words, but honestly, these men and women are on the front lines and a warm meal is the least we could offer during these times. This is our first stop to a local hospital, but definitely not our last. We will try and do our part and we will be teaming up with other restaurants next week to help Cranford and the surrounding areas. #cranfordstrong
