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

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 were walking along the Reuss and walked past Ammos and saw someone eating the best looking octopus, so we stopped in there for dinner the next day. Our plan was to have a light dinner with the octopus and tirokafteri appetizer. Well, the octopus...More

You absolutely must go to Ammos while you’re in Luzern! Traditional Greek food at a family owned restaurant right on the river and the service is truly unmatched - as is the view!

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.
