About
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.

Came here for lunch and we absolutely loved the experience. Sat right near the water and the staff were all extremely accommodating and warm. You can tell they go out of their way to ensure everyone has a great experience. Ordered the farmers salad, octopus...mezze and a chicken dish, so yummy! Recommend for anyone coming to Lucerne. Olive oil was also delicious!More

A disgraceful place. Instead of ordering the main course, we wanted to order a few starters and taste more dishes. But each of the starters is the size of a main course and we ordered about 7 main courses without knowing it. The waiters did...not say in any way that the portions were too big to order in this way and they brought the orders to the table as if they were kidding. As of 21:30, when I asked why it was not possible and healthy for two people to finish a table of this size, and why they didn't warn us, they gave a ridiculous answer like "sometimes there are customers who want that". When we asked them to take back 1-2 plates from the table, they said it was not possible either. I absolutely do not recommend!More

Very traditional greek food, with an amazing taste. The Klèftiko is amazing (slow cooked tender lamb) and the starters were real good. A bit pricy but it was worth it.

I have celiac disease so finding a restaurant with so many gluten-free options was fantastic. The food was delicious and the setting along the river was delightful.

Great food and excellent service. Inside is atmospheric while outside offers seating by river. The water runs very fast here so outside is a bit noisy but offers great views of ancient bridge and old town. Food and wine were fantastic with gluten free options...clearly marked. Service was friendly and very professional. Best food in Lucerne so far so we will return.More

Absolutely fantastic. Great food and top notch service. Portion is generous and good for sharing if you want to try variety of food. The person (regretfully I did not get his name and absolutely kicking myself now so the only description I could give is...he has a ponytail and absolutely charming) who took our order and served our table was detailed with the description of the food and so friendly. He even came to the door when we left which made us feel very special. A must come if you are in Lucerne. Highly recommended. Thank you Ammos for giving us a really good dining experience.More

The decor in the restaurant was great and we received a warm welcome. Unfortunately, the waitress seemed to run out of steam, as it was a busy evening and they were understaffed. Although the Fava and baklava were disappointing, all our other dishes were really...good. The seafood in the “risotto” was perfectly cooked, no rubber in sight. Would go back just for that.More

The Som Maria did excellent job Because she recommended very good wine… And was patient with me and my wife, until I found a wine that pairs with the meal perfectly.

Greek food served for Swiss palate. The Souvlaki came on a bed of fried potatoes (Rosti?) , but was quite tasty.

Good alternative if you are bored of Swiss and Italian restaurants. The food has been a little altered to meet the Swiss palate. The Souvlaki came on a bed of fried potatoes (rostii ?). Nevertheless, it was good food and we enjoyed our dinner.

I would really like to show our honest feedback about the dinner that I have with my family on a Monday evening. We were literally impressed by the hospitality that was provided and the quality food that we had. Everything we ordered were not just...delicious, was amazing delicious . Moreover the recommended red wine “Paros” was something that you rarely can find in Switzerland. Many thanks to Chris that welcomed us in the nicest way and made sure that our whole dinner experience is an unforgettable experience. Will totally come back and recommend it to everyone that have a chat to pass by Luzern. Is a must try restaurant! Thank you very much to the whole service team and really appreciate that you made our night, a night to remember!More
