From the moment we walked into a chaotic service - where staff still found time to acknowledge us, smile and offer a way for us to wait for a table (“enjoy a drink outside and we’ll come and grab you when a table is ready”)...More

Our meal was delicious. We had the meatballs ascend the shrimp, bought off which were starters. However, the servings are the size of a main course. The meatballs were very tasty, as was the shrimp dish. The service was great as well; friendly and prompt.

As a Greek it is hard for me to enjoy Greek food outside of Greece. But Ammos really tries hard to keep It as authentic as it can be. From the ambience of the space to the sharing plates mentality of the Greeks. I strongly...More

We were lucky to get a table at this popular restaurant. It was busy busy busy. Because it was so busy, it was hard to get a glass of wine and order dinner. We enjoyed our server, but she was slammed. The restaurant clearly needs...More

Near the chapel and spreur bridge. If you can, try to get a seat outside by the riverfront, good for people watching and for a nice view. Came in without reservations and I got lucky to snag a seat outside. Now on to the food....More

We are a lovingly maintained restaurant with Greek cuisine. Authenticity is not only a word but we are eager to let you experience the “Meze” at our restaurant. “Meze” means enjoyable, small portions to share with your friends just as we do in Greek. We furthermore have many vegetarians (most of them are even vegan or easy to adapt for you) and gluten-free dishes to offer. We are looking forward to spoiling you and present you a still unknown dish from Hellas. During Summer time, you can enjoy the lively hustle and bustle of the city just next to the calming river of Rheuss on our restaurant terrace.
