A lovely little surprise in a kind of zero town

We came up to Los Alamos to visit "The Black Hole," a famous military surplus store that kind of semi-officially went out of business a few years ago, and got there just before they started bulldozing the place and felt a sense of victory in that, but had no lunch plans and so cruised through this... read more

After reading the reviews for Los Alamos restaurants, I wanted to try Pyramid for a gyro. I ordered a traditional gyro sandwich and a chicken gyro sandwich so I would have lunch for the next day. The meals came out and I knew immediately why an offer for "double the meat for $3.00" was prominently displayed adjacent to the sandwich... More

It was a rainy Sunday evening in Los Alamos. Many places were closed on Sunday and the pickings were slim. We found out about Pyramid Café and headed there. It is in a shopping center and a bit tucked away and hard to find without much of a sign. Expectations were somewhat low for this workaday café. But the menu... More

We went there for dinner. I had a small Greek salad and lamb stew. My wife had moussaka. The moussaka was very good, and my salad and lamb stew were OK. The servers are young and untrained - they do their best, but some training would be helpful.

The mediterranean, middle eastern, type food served at this restaurant was excellent. Everything was fresh and homemade. The hummus was great, the baba ganouche was superb. The restaurant is in a strip center, so it doesn't look like much from the outside, but so worth the time to stop and eat.

Very friendly staff -- they let me dine in for lunch even though I rolled in at 2:30 pm (closed 2:30-4:30 pm in Los Alamos). Excellent food!

The Pyramid has become our regular Monday lunch spot, and a consistent location for other mid-week sessions meeting folks. On chilly days I enjoy their avgolemono chicken lemon soup, and the rest of the time I'm a big fan of the small-sized greek salad with marinated chicken or the salad with that savory lamb/gyro meat and a tangy dressing.

We enjoyed lunch with out of town visitors on a Los Alamos excursion. The mezze appetizer,,split among four of us, and gyros and spanakopita for main dishes left us quite stuffed. The food was tasty, hot and served promptly. Not a lot of choices on Sunday in Los Alamos, but this satisfied.

We ate dinner at the Pyramid while visiting friends in Los Alamos - it was great! The staff were very attentive and very accommodating of the needs of the two young children in our party. I've seen some reviews about this being a Greek restaurant - the food and the decorations reminded me more of a Middle Eastern restaurant we... More

I've eaten here several times and always enjoy it. Great middle eastern food in a casual setting. Prices are reasonable. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because the service is sometimes slow, and occasionally an item may not be up to par.
